We have eaten here almost every day for more than a week. The food has been excellent as is the service. Grace was our waitress for three meals and she excelled. The other waitresses were excellent too. This is a beautiful spot looking at the...ocean and the Lubec Channel. The fish chowder is a very substantial bowl for $15, Canadian of course. They make paninis and wonderful salads and serve beer, wine and other alcohol. I also had lobster on a croissant which was also substantial and tasty. They are open seven days from 8-5. They have some breakfast items too. There are two other restaurants on the island. Both have views of the ocean. You will enjoy everything they have.More

Lovely dining room with swing music playing for ambience. Delicious coffee and chicken pesto panini. Absolutely gorgeous views while dining on the porch.

We were looking for breakfast and were supposed to eat at the Porch. Unfortunately (for them!) they were closed so we came up to The Prince Cafe. As it was early, the staff were busy in a meeting, but quickly accomodated our needs for early...morning nutrition! The service was so good, we returned for lunch!! Everything was first class and the service second-to-none! Recommended.More

Best Corn chowder and biscuits I have ever had! Great little cafe in the historical park. Go for breakfast, before you explore, then return for lunch. Food all tastes like great home cooking.

Much of the food is homemade. Service is pleasant friendly and attentive. Could be a bit faster though as we were on a three hour van tour and wanted to spend more time in the Roosevelt Cottage.

We were visiting with our daughter and family. They were very accommodating to our grandkids, aged 3 and 5. We each ordered something different and everyone enjoyed their meals. Fresh sandwiches and salads. Friendly staff. Delicious food! Limited menu but enough options to suit everyone.

The closed sign was up near the FDR Cottage parking lot but we decided to chance it. There’s more parking near the Prince Cottage and the restaurant was open. It’s more like a cafeteria than a restaurant with daily options listed both on a placard...in front of a food cart and on a wall mounted chalkboard. There are soups, sandwiches and salads available. I got a seasonal salad and asked them to add a scoop of the chicken salad to it instead of a piece of grilled chicken. It was outstanding! The salad ingredients were all fresh and the chicken salad was outstanding! We chose a table inside and had a great view of the water. It’s a great addition to the FDR Park.More

It was a convenient place to have lunch, but it was also very good. We each had the bowls of soup...two different types and both were delicious. Portions are large and I think the menu may change daily. The dinning room is pretty, but the...view from the deck is even better.More

I could not agree more with the previous reviewer. There should be a person there as a cashier checking people out. Having staff do double duty must be stressful for them, and time-consuming for those waiting to check out... More
