I’m admittedly an unreliable reviewer in this case. This was my first time having Vietnamese food other than pho. The bahn mi hardly had any meat, which I think is probably typical, so that’s fine, but the bread was really not very good. Very dry...More

Our scheduling only allowed for morning treats at Saigon Cafe which brought us back twice during our short Bar Harbor visit for blueberry muffins and Vietnamese coffee. The owner, Hon, is a wonderful person who left us smiling after each visit. As noted above, we...More

I ate at the Saigon Corner Café my last night in Bar Harbor. The chicken pho was as good as any I have ever eaten. Delicious! I highly recommend! You will enjoy wonderful food and friendly service.

We ordered Pho and a Banh Mi sandwich. I was suspicious because the choices for the Banh Mi were curried chicken, meatball, turkey and cheese, and a couple of other things. None of these are traditional Banh Mi. We ordered the meatball - it was...More

Gave this place 2 stars b/c of the friendly service. Pho was by far the worst I've ever had. Those who like it clearly have never had real pho before. Broth was flavorless, cabbage instead of bean sprouts just wrong and weird tasting, and noodles...More

I really do. I hate putting down a local buisness. I had such high hopes two years ago but, sadly I have to admit that this food just wasn't very good. We ordered the beef pho. I was impressed with the questions I was asked...More
