What a cute restaurant. Their breakfasts were wonderful. My mushroom omelette was so good. My husband loved his Eggs Benedict. We all enjoyed our breakfasts. Our server was on top of things even though we were on the second floor.

Great food, huge portions (too much for our British appetites!), nice bottomless coffee. Staff were really friendly and we had an unrushed breakfast out on the porch.

This is the best breakfast diner you'll visit. The food is all organic and delicious. The staff is wonderful! Check out their hot coco or their maple latte, you'll love it!

This is our favorite go-to breakfast spot in Bar Harbor (or the east coast, to tell the truth). Service is always great, and the food is even better. I go for the granola. Banana pecan pancake is my wife's fave. Home fries are great, also.

I have had good experiences at 2Cats in the past, but this time the service was poor at best. The food is very good as it always has been. If you are headed out for a leisurely breakfast and don't care how long it takes,...More
