“Great local breakfast!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

We stopped at Morning Glory after a recommendation from another local cafe (we were looking for bfast sandwiches which the other cafe did not have). When we showed up there was a line out the door, but it moved pretty quickly.

We already had coffee so we ordered 4 breakfast sandwiches (egg, sausage, cheese). We try to watch carbs, but decided to get bagels on 2 of them- a cheddar and 3-seed...delicious! Carbs aside, we HAD to get a sticky bun and a blueberry crumb pie for later! I can't wait to try the pie, it looks wonderful.

We hope you'll stop in for breakfast! They don't have a ton of breakfast food options, but you can't go wrong with a breakfast sandwich!

“Maybe overwhelmed?”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Loved the funky look of the building and the pastries and bagels looked/sounded good. I was hoping to grab a quick coffee and breakfast sandwich. After 20 minutes my bagel/egg/cheese was still not ready. I watched many customers bring back their bagels because of mix ups in the order. Coffee pots ran out, room became packed as we all waited for a bagel. They have potential but need better management of the orders/food prep. Don't bother if you're in a rush!

“No cake orders because "overwhelmed"”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

Surly staff refused cake order for two days later because they were "overwhelmed". Maybe they should try a less stressful business than running a tiny tourist trap bakery.

“Best Sticky Buns”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

I am a sticky bun connoisseur and these are close to perfect. We visit Bar Harbor every year and one of the first stops if the Morning Glory Cafe. Excellent vegetarian sandwiches too.

“Morning happiness...”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Loved the vibe in this great bakery. Go for coffee and sticky buns or bagels... and walk down to the sandbar and out to the island. Bring your own mug and coffee is $1.
