Maine - Bar Harbor - West Street Cafe / by Dave Hileman

Once again as I delve into older places a dearth of photos. However, that is not much of an excuse for this one as we were there this fall. I just forgot. Dolt. (I even have a worse photo coming up soon.) The West Street Cafe is a must eat for a trip to Acadia NP. The tag line on the web site is GOOD FOOD - GOOD PRICES - FRIENDLY SERVICE - RELAXED ATMOSPHERE and surprisingly it is true. The fried haddock platter is wonderful and a good value. Lots of fish. The clam chowder came in first in our rigorous testing AKA, Tom Light’s Rating and the blueberry pie is one of the best. Cindy has tried several different dishes and has liked them all, I stick to the haddock. I took this quick iPhone shot to show our family how they raised the roof to create more space - plus it is really nice. The remodel did not change the menu, thankfully. Add West Street Cafe to your dinning list if you are in Bar Harbor and plan on a wait even in the expanded restaurant. Visit their “gallery” for nice photos at:
