Great food, great service. Lots of lobster takes on breakfast staples plus plenty of sweet options too. There was a crowd but they move people through quickly. Come hungry, the portions are generous. Great way to fill up before a day hiking in the park.

I truly don't understand all those great reviews. Staff was feather rude, food mediocre, space very crowded. There are better options in town.

This meal was incredible and that description does it no justice. Went here for a late Sunday morning breakfast. First time visit and was not disappointed. Environment was warm and welcoming and wait staff was very attentive. Started breakfast with a blueberry and raspberry smoothie. Very tasty. We both had the special of the day, a portobello, bacon and swiss... More

Loved this restaurant the first three times I was there. Fourth time, awful. Food pretty okay. The wait was long (not a big deal). But the wait staff forgot to come back to us many times. They let us sit at a table for about 20 minutes without asking us what we'd like to drink and then when they came... More

2 Cats was recommended to us by a friend when we went to Maine and we ended up going twice we enjoyed it so much. Cute atmospheric restaurant, only downsides were that parking is a bit of a challenge to find nearby and the staff seemed a bit standoffish. Nevertheless the food was great and prepared very quickly. We especially... More

On a recent cold January morning we had a wonderful breakfast at 2 cats before heading out to hike in the Park. The food was outstanding and the service excellent. We enjoyed an omelet and a breakfast burrito (burrito could be a little spicier, but not bad for New England!). Coffee is good and hot. Atmosphere in an older house... More

They are only open for limited hours but can't be beat for a good meal to start the day. Sort of eclectic menu but food always fresh and well prepared..

We had breakfast after an early morning sunrise at Cadillac Mt. Luckily not a long line in the early morning, but now I know why so busy. It's a cute, cozy restaurant in several different rooms. Love the cat knickknacks.I had eggs with the biscuits- served with strawberry butter. Friends had wonderful (they said) pancakes. Will go next time in... More

As this restaurant is situated in a former house there are several rooms, corridors, nooks and corners. Being seated next to the restroom did not help. Food was good and tasty. Staff was kind of obligatory or busy.

Wonderful, big portioned breakfast. The hash was excellent but the Lobster eggs benedict was divine! Friendly and attentive staff. Go early, the lines get long!
