Love the hot chocolate! But the best part was the warm and friendly environment, all girls were so nice to me and my friends. It was like sitting in grandmas kitchen to drink hot chocolate and have nice conversations. They have a map where visitors can mark the places where they came from, loved the idea!

We were searching for a good coffee place for an hour when we happened in this gem. Mrs. Frances and Mr. Ralph are great people and the apple pie and coffee are fantastic! So good, that we came back the next day. The blueberry cheesecake and coconut macaroons are great too. Definitely a place to visit.

We stopped at quietside on a cold, April day. The owners were very nice and shared information about the area. The lobster roll was packed with lobster, and the lobster stew was excellent. The lunch was finished with blueberry pie. Wonderful flavor, and loaded with fresh blueberries. Stop by if you are visiting the island.

We LOVE Quietside Cafe in the heart of Southwest Harbor and worth a drive over from anywhere on MDI. The sandwiches, homemade soups, and desserts were excellent. Service is friendly and welcoming. The clam chowder is the absolute best we’ve had, anywhere! The fresh blueberry pie is sublime- no cornstarch filling - just the berries and enough pastry to hold them. We look forward to stopping in again. Thank you!

If you are visiting the Quiet Side, stop by the Cafe for delicious ice cream or a slice of homemade pie! The blueberry pie is so tasty and filled with wild Maine blueberries! There is a nice little seating area and small park directly adjacent to the Cafe with shade and benches.
