The reviews below are right on- an excellent sandwich shop with unique sandwiches and desserts! Small in size, yet very friendly and helpful staff. They do work very hard, and I had no problem leaving a tip in the jar!
We had the Grand Banker, which consisted of turkey, pesto mayo, lettuce and tomato, and red onion.
We paired that with a small portion of potato salad, beets, and pasta salad. Each was exceptional. And a freshly squeezed lemonade, which will quench any thirst.

We had the shortbread caramel nut bar, and raspberry chocolate bunt cake with almonds. Very good.

Quaint, small, and you can miss it in a blink while driving . (If this happens, be sure to turn around-- you will not be disappointed!)

Will certainly stop back again!

There are plenty of deli shops in downtown Bar Harbor, but if you are looking for a great, creative sandwich, away from crowds and busy streets- this is the best place!
The sandwiches are great size, fresh ingredients, a great service. Mother's Kitchen is a little bit of a drive from downtown Bar Harbor, but well worth it- and I would say a great place to grab sandwhiches to go for a picnic for a trip to Southwest Harbor, Echo Lake, Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse.
I would suggest calling ahead and placing your order, since they can get pretty busy- it's a small spot with a few girls working their butts off making great food!

Stopped here before checking in at the KOA down the street. We've been coming here for years, but never noticed this place! Excellent, fresh, delicious sandwiches. Our picky 10 year old really liked the ham and cheddar, and was adventurous enough to try the pesto pasta salad, which she really loved. A must-stop-at from now on, for us!

We stopped by Mother's Kitchen on our way back from Carriage rides in Acadia park. While crowds can be an issue over in Bar Harbor, this small restaurant near Somesville, didn't feel crammed. We ate outside at the picnic tables and enjoyed the great weather. We had the cold turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce sandwich and a local brewed root beer - both were awesome. Keep your eyes open, this restaurant is in the small yellow house near the hardware store. Please note it is open only for breakfast and lunch.

Tiny little shack, with picnic tables out front. Don't let the size of the shack or the super unfriendly/ no-personality staff deter you. The sandwiches are great. We stopped here every day, for 5 days in a row and picked up our lunch for later. Delicious. Everyday, we tried engaging the staff into any kind of conversation, to no end. We complimented the great sandwiches, how pretty the area was, to how friendly all the people, to how beautiful the weather was, to how happy we were to find such a great place. Nothing. Never got a single word of response to any compliment. The same 2 gals took our order and stared through us like we were not even there. Just like blank robots. But the sandwiches were great. So just don't expect any personality, just great sandwiches.
