Had breakfast here today, after wondering for some time about Simple Simon's. They claim to have the best home fries in Maine...so we thought we would give it a try.

Ok choice, ok food at a ok price. A bit too small inside. A way to avoid being in a crowded hotel's included breakfast small room, but not more.

Awesome place. Great price for the #3 combo *3 slices of french toast, two eggs anyway, and bacon/ham/ or sausage*. I love this place, and will be coming back. Door couldn't stay shut everyone was so friendly and loved the atmosphere. If you wan't a great breakfast or brunch Simple Simon's is the place for you!
