Little Notch seems to have sewn up the fresh bakery market at Southwest Harbor and in Bar Harbor as well. Their bread offerings were very attractive and what we bought and took home was fresh, but the sweet breads baked that morning seemed like they were baked the day before. Heavy and stale. Their loaf breads were artisanally appealing. Service in Southwest Harbor was friendly and attentive. Not so in Bar Harbor.

Little Notch bakes a great variety of breads every morning. This is our choice for bread. There is one downside to this bakery, however. The breads are placed on a rack in the store window and the customer is supposed to use a deli wrap to pick up the bread. However I often see customers rifling through the bread with bare hands, yuck. The food and coffee are very good but slow. No table service, pick up at the counter.

Healthy, hearty unusual sandwiches and home-made soups make this a great place for a quick meal with a convenient location on Southwest harbor's main street. The toasted broccoli sandwich was a treat.

Got some Bolivian coffee for the car ride before a hike and it was delicious. Muffins, bear claws, and Maine's traditional whoopie pies tempted. Seating in the back, friendly service, and a world map display where you can add a pin indicating where you're from.

We called at 2:35 on Sunday afternoon to place our order (totaled $85) the staff gave us a hard time, stated that they closed at 3, hmmmmm. We are locals, not very impressed. One of the items we ordered was a pizza that we have had quite often in the past few years, their #1 chicken, peppers, ricotta, etc. It was absolutely terrible, very little chicken, no peppers, sauce was skimpy at best. Arthur, what is going on?
