We went for brunch here in the early afternoon the day after Christmas. The place was packed w/waiting line. The fellow in front of me said he was in a party of six so I should go to the front of the line because there were tables available for two. I did just that, and we were seated promptly. We... More

When in the US we love to go out for breakfast. We stayed at Winslow Memorial Park nearby for camping and got an advise for Freeport Cafe on this forum. It was perfect for us as we have got exactly the kind of hearty breakfast we like. Food was perfect. Service as well. We came twice and the long line... More

Have driven by for years and we finally stopped in. Very much what I expected. Good, basic diner-type food. Clearly popular with the locals. Would like to try breakfast some day.

A nice little spot for a basic, delicious,dinner. We arrived late after a long day of traveling and the hotel clerk sent us to the Cafe. There were several locals having dinner so we were confident the food was tasty with good value! Locals know their stuff!

Had breakfasts and dinners for 2 days and each meal was very good, plentiful and reasonably priced. The lobster omelet was to die for!

Went for breakfast, certainly seemed to be full of locals. The food was good, classic American breakfasts, nothing new or original but well priced. You must try their homemade raisin bread, super good. Only suggestion would be to improve ventilation, clothes smelled of breakfast for the rest of the morning.

Great variety on the menu. It is all nicely prepared. The homemade corned beef hash was great! My eggs Benedict was terrific. It would have been nice if they offered a dark roast coffee, but alas. Actually, had they also offered a dark roast coffee (few places do), I would have given the Cafe an exceptional rating. There was a... More

The food is average for this type of establishment however the service is below average. All three times I ordered a breakfast entree which does not include coffee and I did not order one and...
