Guests of our Camden boutique hotel Whitehall love our signature small plates breakfast, served in our on-site restaurant Pig + Poet. But sometimes you want to go out and enjoy a hearty brunch, maybe with a cocktail, to get the day started. For those times we've got this list of our favorite spots for brunch in and around Camden. Enjoy brunch in Camden to start your day in the Midcoast off right.
We love this Main Street café for its endless supply of piping hot coffee, delicious array of housemade baked goods, and a great menu of hot sweet and savory brunch items. Order at the counter in the back, then snag a booth to wait for you for your food. We recommend ordering a cinnamon roll or donut to tide you over while you wait for your Maine blueberry pancakes or "Wevos Rancheros" skillet.
Part restaurant, part farmers' market, this Belfast café is a must for any locavores. Its market-fresh menu feels like home cooking, but some of the best you've ever had. Try the cornmeal pancakes with Maine blueberries and maple syrup (obvs) or the special egg scramble loaded with local veggies. You'll come away so full and satisfied, you won't even notice the menu is vegetarian.
Big, hearty breakfasts are the thing at this Rockland cafe with seven types of eggs benedict available. It's also well known for its cinnamon rolls, huge buns topped with a sticky nut glaze or traditional with a sweet icing. With housemade toast, granola, and even corn tortillas, you'll quickly come to see why this place is called Home Kitchen Café.
