“Delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Not only was this restaurant walking distance to our motel (Moseley), but also delicious. We were seated in the front which turned out to be nice and quiet.

“Will be back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Went here with a large group of 18 people - this always presents a challenge for a restaurant.
CTW handled it like true champs. The food seemed to come out pretty much in one course at a time, and no one complained that their dish appeared like it had been waiting on a count in the kitchen for 10 minutes. Everything seemed really fresh and perfectly prepared.
The service was top quality - we had 2 primary wait staff and others attended as necessary for water and drink refills.
It is very rare to satisfy everyone in a group of this size, but these people handled it like professionals.
Really good food with really great service, against all odds. Cannot beat that.

“Breakfast perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

We loved our recent breakfast at This Way Cafe. Favs: Blueberry Pancakes, French Toast made w Cinnamon Raisin Bread, Kit's Burrito & Ann's Omelet made w egg white. Great portion sizes. Good coffee. Wait staff wasn't overly friendly, but we're finding this is more of a trend for this region of the country, not restaurant-specific.

“I had a better experience last time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

I had been here before when i came to bar harbor and i loved it. I came back this time and they messed up my order. I had ordered an omlet without mushrooms and after eating a couple bites I found that it was filled with mushrooms. I was glad i was allergic to them but it was still not great, especially because they were not really busy. The waitress got me a new 1/2 omlet since i already ate part of the other omlet and i lost my potatoes in the process. I wasnt going to argue or complain but i definitely had a better meal last time. It would have been a better experience if the did a little more service recovery.
