We had breakfast after an early morning sunrise at Cadillac Mt. Luckily not a long line in the early morning, but now I know why so busy. It's a cute, cozy restaurant in several different rooms. Love the cat knickknacks.I had eggs with the biscuits- served with strawberry butter. Friends had wonderful (they said) pancakes. Will go next time in... More

As this restaurant is situated in a former house there are several rooms, corridors, nooks and corners. Being seated next to the restroom did not help. Food was good and tasty. Staff was kind of obligatory or busy.

Wonderful, big portioned breakfast. The hash was excellent but the Lobster eggs benedict was divine! Friendly and attentive staff. Go early, the lines get long!

When I arrived in Maine from Texas my mission during my 3 stay was to have lobster for EVERY MEAL! I asked the manager at our hotel where she recommended I go for a lobster omelet. She had to think about it and said if anyone served them it would be "2 CATS!! She was right!!! Their breakfast was absolutely... More

We started our breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice (filled with pulp)..($3.95 each) and coffee ($2.95each). I had a breakfast sandwich with homefries which are just a bit spicy. My wife had the breakfast sandwich with fresh fruit. Both were $9.95. The breakfast sandwich had the cheese wrapped with egg rather than just laid on top. All the food in... More

We ate here on the first morning of our trip to Bar Harbor, and liked it so much and saw so much on the menu we wanted to try that we came back again the next morning. The biscuits with strawberry butter is really wonderful, as are their pancakes (we tried cheddar and sausage, blueberry, and raspberry almond). The corned... More

We loved the casual, homey setting and the hostess was the best we've ever experienced. My wife devoured the lobster omelet and I treated myself to delightful blueberry pancakes one day, strawberry and banana the next. The only drawback was service. Our first morning, the server was friendly but not attentive, causing me to search out the hostess for coffee... More

We arrived at 2 Cats early, as we had heard it was a popular breakfast spot in Bar Harbor.  Our waiter was very friendly and chatted about good spots around town for visitors.  They kept the coffee and water filled at all times.  We ordered the summer scramble and the Mediterranean polenta.  Both dishes were well prepared and tasted very...

Breakfast was awesome! I loved the hot sauce so much that we bought a bottle to bring home. Got the corned beef hash it was yummy.

If you eat anywhere in Bar Harbor - be sure and try breakfast at two cats. I've never had a better breakfast. I was in a group of four and we all agreed. I had the banana pecan pancakes with a side of sausage. Best evah! The sausage was not your typical pork product. I wish I had asked what... More
