    Awesome GF pancakes! Had fresh Maine blueberries with the pancakes, home fries, eggs, and bacon with the pancakes and all were delicious!

    BEST PANCAKES we've ever had in a restaurant!!! We make King Arthur pancakes at home and they are FABULOUS....these tasted exactly the same. The pancake syrup on the table contains traces of gluten (information our server offered up...we didn't have to ask!!), so you'll have to pay a little extra for "legit" maple syrup, but it's so worth it. Had our first Glutino "English muffin", which was good (they have a separate toaster). A great experience all around. Gluten free doesn't even cause a blip on their radar when you order, so it was a relaxing experience. ( husband's 'regular" pancakes were not NEARLY as light and fluffy as ours, and proclaimed ours to be better than his and he's a HUGE big-breakfast lover!!)

    Very good. Had a gluten free English muffin and home fries were gluten free. Ate here 2 days in a row.

    Gluten free done right for breakfast. First time my daughter could order pancakes at a restaurant in the 14 years since she was diagnosed with celiac. Great food by great people.

    Very friendly staff and good food. They did forget the bacon on my omelet, but they were nice about correcting it.

    Good gluten free options for breakfast! Dined here 2 out of 3 days during our stay in Bar Harbor and enjoyed the food / service. Wish they could make gf blueberry pancakes though! Also weird that their sausage has gluten in it when there are so many sausages that no longer use it.

    We stopped in here after seeing the positive ratings and because it seemed Celiac safe. I have to agree with another reviewer that the pancakes are pricey, so I passed on those. Two pancakes are 8.99, plus, if you have Celiac, you have to buy the Maple syrup or fruit sauce because the syrup on the table has trace amounts of gluten. So, now you've paid 12 bucks for two pancakes! Anyway, the manager was attentive and explained the menu and options to me. Their breakfast meat is all GF now. I ordered eggs, bacon, home fries(GF!), and a GF english muffin($1.50 extra) and it was all delicious and safe. The english muffin was so tasty that I thought it was homemade, but it was Glutino. Who new Glutino could make something yummy!? The waitress told me the homemade jelly on the table was GF, but it was a jar with a spoon it in, so I couldn't risk the cross contamination. ( I was a little worried because she didn't realize a Celiac couldn't eat from something communal like that.) Everything was delicious and I didn't get sick. Also, the coffee was AMAZING! This is a great place to go if you're in Bar Harbor!

    We found the staff unfriendly and not very attentive. They have some GF items but I can't say it really was worth what they charge. I got the GF pancakes. I bought the Maine maple syrup but it comes in a reusable container so could be cross contaminated. They were just ok. I wouldn't go back again.

    Fantastic GF pancakes. Husband had regular pancakes. Both huge servings and tasty. Knowledgeable staff, try the jam on the table. Minor annoyance is having to pay $2 extra for Maine syrup. Get there super early, line forms quick!

    So accommodating to gluten free diners! They even have a separate gluten free kitchen. The gluten free pancakes are delicious, taste just like the "real things." They make a delicious strawberry rhubarb sauce that's a great alternative to maple syrup. I'd recommend calling ahead to place your order or to make a reservation as they're rather busy, year round.

    Kids friendly restaurant. The pancakes for kids were really good, but we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. You need to order real maple syrup extra, because the regular syrup on the table may contain traces of gluten.

    Great place for breakfast, friendly, helpful service. If you are in the mood for GF blueberry pancakes, make sure you go in the summer when the blueberries are in season. As they use fresh berries...just not in the spring (strawberries and bananas can be substituted). Huge amount of food too !!

    I have never found a real GF breakfast restaurant before. Oh boy was I happy when I saw that one here on this website. I tried the GF eggs benedict. The buns are an extra 1,50$ and are Glutino's. Really good eventhough the benedict sauce lacks taste a bit. Beware, the sausages are not GF, but the ham and bacon are. Nice manager who is fully willing to improve by having our comments.
