Amazing food, amazing service, amazing environment. All of the reviews are true. We arrived as the doors opened after enjoying a foggy sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. We were greeted by Sara with a warm smile and hot coffee! Blueberry pancakes, breakfast burrito, the biscuit with STRAWBERRY BUTTER were devoured by my friend and I . The only downside was trying...

2 cats is a lovely cafe style restaurant with bright open rooms. We loved all the paintings and made us miss our (2 cats) at home! Although I told my kids about the two kitty's that would run around we came to the restaurant with disappointing news that the kitties were gone to homes. Nonetheless the food was just as... More

We visited this funky restaurant/cafe in mid-April, before the in-season crowds descended. My wife and I each had an amazing breakfast. She had eggs benedict with smoked salmon and I had the lobster omelete (loaded with lobster). Each meal came with their famous homemade biscuits, excellent home fries, and some fruit. The coffee was excellent. The atmosphere was homey and... More

Unlike some reviewers we had a wonderful experience at 2 cats. We arrived about 8:30 and received excellent service the entire visit. Our waitress even gave us recommendations for other great restaurants in the area. The lobster omelette was good as was the potatoes and spicy sausage. But the two stars of the meal were the blueberry pancakes and the... More

I came here for a mid morning breakfast before taking a walk around downtown Bar Harbor to enjoy the sunshine. They have good quality food and so many choices.

I had breakfast here on a recent business trip in the area and was really impressed. The ingredients were local and very fresh and the service was great. The food was really wonderful. My colleague had a mushroom omelette that he raved about and I had a tofu scramble - big kudos to Two Cats for offering this - I... More

We had breakfast here both mornings that we were in Bar Harbor. My daughter had the pancakes both times and they were by far the fluffiest pancakes either one of us had ever tasted. I had an omelet the first morning and an egg sandwich the second morning. Both were excellent. The homemade biscuit with the strawberry butter was amazing.... More

Great food, great service. Lots of lobster takes on breakfast staples plus plenty of sweet options too. There was a crowd but they move people through quickly. Come hungry, the portions are generous. Great way to fill up before a day hiking in the park.

I truly don't understand all those great reviews. Staff was feather rude, food mediocre, space very crowded. There are better options in town.

This meal was incredible and that description does it no justice. Went here for a late Sunday morning breakfast. First time visit and was not disappointed. Environment was warm and welcoming and wait staff was very attentive. Started breakfast with a blueberry and raspberry smoothie. Very tasty. We both had the special of the day, a portobello, bacon and swiss... More
