We visited on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. The food was excellent - omelette and Bahn Mi sandwich, but service was way too slow - we waited for a table for about 20 minutes and then waited another 45 minutes for the food. Also, they ran out of milk which we requested for our toddler. Who runs out of milk?

My husband and I are mid-coast Maine summer residents, and we enjoyed several good meals last year at the Home Kitchen Cafe. This summer, however, both of our visits have been disappointing. Both times, we arrived around 10:45AM on a weekday and had to wait almost 45 minutes for a table. The first time, our server appeared fairly promptly, although we had to wait another 30 minutes for our meal. The second time, it was a good 10 minutes before our server came to take beverage orders. Not wanting to waste any more time, we ordered our meal as well -- we both ordered the Thai Cobb Salad, only to be told that the kitchen was "out" of Thai marinated chicken but we could have roast chicken instead. (We were surrounded by diners still eating breakfast -- how could the kitchen already be "out" of a key lunch-time ingredient?) It was another 40 (!) minutes before our salads arrived -- the veggies were flavorful but topped with a tiny portion of extraordinarily bland chicken and a less tiny portion of stale chewy croutons. All this and a dining room full of tables too close together, occupied by lots of families with cranky children who (like us) had long since tired of the heat, the wait and the noise. I can understand why the owners have suspended dinner service for the summer -- at this rate, they should consider suspending lunch service as well.

I was really excited to try the Home Kitchen Cafe and my husband and I did so today. We had great seats out on the upstairs deck on a beautiful sunny day. My husband had poached eggs and home made corned beef hash which he really enjoyed. I had the chorizo frittata which may not have been the best choice, but it was still good. The home fries and the cinnamon buns were good, as was the coffee. It was not the best breakfast I've ever had but it certainly is worth a stop if you are in the area as it was very good. Additionally, service was incredibly friendly and attentive - which was impressive given how busy they were.

Serves breakfast till 3 p.m.--perfect for cool, foggy days when you want comfort food. The calories and fat are worth saving up for!
