If you like waiting approx. 30 minutes for your breakfast, seeing flies landing all over the food, and getting your meal with a side of attitude, then by all means, come to Peaks Cafe! I came here on Sunday morning after getting off the ferry at Peaks Island. This cafe has a prime location... but that's about it. My boyfriend wanted the veggie burrito, but when I ordered it, I was told that they ran out of onions and peppers (ingredients that I consider very basic in any eating establishment, but whatever). I had to call my bf up so he could pick something else, and in the meantime, I let the person behind me in line place his order. When I was ready, the lady at the register almost took the following person behind me, then stopped and told him, "I'm sorry, I should take this customer first. She was in line before, but didn't know what she wanted." Um, yes, I did. You just failed to have what I wanted. And if you're out of something, maybe you should cross it off on your chalkboard menu. We ended up ordering a sausage burrito and a toasted bagel with cream cheese. We waited approx. 25-30 minutes, no joke. Mind you, this place isn't a sit-down restaurant with servers, and the items we ordered were not complex. At about the 20 minute point, after I saw a person who ordered after me get her food first, I nicely asked if our food would be coming out soon. Instead of an apology of any sort, I just got something along the lines of, "We're very busy, we have a lot of orders to do, be patient." When the cook finally handed us our food, she again didn't apologize... she only said that the burrito takes longer than everything else. Well, if you knew the burrito took awhile to make, then why didn't you bother toasting my bagel toward the tail-end, instead of making it immediately after I ordered it, so that it would sit around for 20+ minutes and get lukewarm and soggy by the time I got it?? Also, while I was waiting, I saw flies sitting on the bagels (they don't bother closing their bagel case, even though the case cover was RIGHT THERE), the cream cheese, the cutting board. It was disgusting. I don't usually slam businesses, but seriously, do yourself a favor. Eat in Portland before you get on the ferry. #endrant
This is one of those places that makes a good vacation spot even better. Good food, super nice people and good location.
Take the ferry to Peaks Island some guy tells me...rent a bike and ride around the island he tells me....go there for the reggae fest on Sundays he says.....WHY DIDN'T ANYONE MENTION Peaks Cafe!?! We got off the ferry around 2pm and were absolutely famished....so we crawled up the hill from the ferry looking for something reasonably priced and quick....checked yelp for some help.....DAMN YOU YELP!!!! Only $$$ places? Saw Peaks Cafe, checked it out....solid. They do simple sandwiches, some breakfast stuff, and coffee. Simple, reasonably priced (especially for AN ISLAND!), and friendly staff. Plus they have a cool little outside seating area. It's ideally located right up the street from the ferry landing. Apparently their lox is popular because they were out of it when I arrived and I was sad. Instead I tried the crab roll, twas solid. My lady got the chicken waldorf sandwich which was BOMB! If you're cheap like me, and don't want to sit down to a fancy meal, and just want a quaint little coffee shop....go to Peaks Cafe.

Any time I walk into a restaurant and there are posters with various rules all over the place I get turned off immediately and leave- but bc I was on an island and starving we stayed. It was great- I got a salad and bowl of their salmon corn chowder- The chowdahh was the best I've had in New England! Make sure to get a salad basaltic red onions in it- not to be missed! Not dog friendly!
nice view and friendly staff BUT horribly slow service and very mediocre food. I ordered the lobster roll which cost $18. it was a total rip off because it was tiny and dry. my mom got a veggie burger and wanted a side of guacamole but it was probably a teaspoon of it spread on top. she ask so asked for a side of summer squash and zucchini which came with about 6 slices total. my dad ordered the seafood pasta which sounded amazing on the menu but it came with overlooked linguini, 3 shrimp, 2 mussels and probably frozen and reheated scallops. definitely come to the island to walk around but head back to Portland for dinner. overall DO NOT RECOMMEND unless you want to waste your money, time and stomach space. to end on a nice note they did let me charge my phone.
We stumbled upon this place just as it was opening and we were not disappointed. The chowder (bacon and corn) was excellent- I wish we got more! The chowder was just what I was looking for from a seaside restaurant. Our sandwiches were very flavorful, especially the Hawaiian Chicken. With a great view and great food, we were impressed and recommend it to anyone heading to Peaks Island! It is not a fancy or upscale place, but for a quick bite to eat after exploring the island, we enjoyed our visit!
