The nicest part is being able to eat outdoors in a beautiful setting. I actually wish they would expand and add a roof or sail above. The lobster bisque is fabulous!

We were the first seated; food arrived lukewarm. Menu is very limited anyway and on this day not all items were available because of staffing shortage. Ordered “traditional eggs Benedict - not sure what that sauce was.

I went last week and was totally happy that’s why I came back the following week . This time my server was not very friendly as the prior week and my guest was a bit disappointed in the bernaise sauce on her eggs Benedict feeling it was “ thin” I don’t eat eggs so I can’t comment . My breakfast was delicious as the week before .

I’ve been to Merriland Farm many times for many years. As other have noted, there’s been a change in ownership. I noticed the menu wasn’t quite as expansive as before, which is ok! Although I think having simple options would be nice - my husband likes the basics - 2 eggs, bacon, potatoes with toast, etc and he missed that. (Although I know he could have asked for this, he wouldn’t knowing it wasn’t “officially” part of the menu.) Overall, staff and service was good and food was yummy. My husband and I both had the hash Benedict and found it tasty. I liked the sweet potatoes that were part of the side of roasted potatoes. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. And although it felt a little different from my many other previous visits, we will continue to return.

We are happy to hear that you will return and that you had a positive experience! Thank you for your kind review. Please tell your husband to feel free to ask about a basic breakfast; it is likely that Chef Nick will accommodate him. Also, we will be having a new fall menu come out this month so please be sure to come back and check it out!

I made a reservation on Open Table however I still waited about 15 minutes before a hostess appeared. My main concern is they are so understaffed. Our waitress definitely was very pleasant and did the best she could with so many customers. The noise level was very high once inside. I have been going here for years but I would definitely think twice about going again.

Thank you for your review. We apologize that your experience was not what you had hoped. Like most places in the area, we are understaffed and today, we were unexpectedly extra short-staffed. We take your review to heart and we will do all we can to improve where needed. We do hope you don't give up on us and return.

As with many restaurants currently, service was a little challenged (presumably due to staffing... quality of service was fine... duration was extended). Even though reservations were in hand, there was a 10 minute wait for our table. The wait for the food was also excessive (compounded by a waitress giving our meal to another party). However, oops will happen. The food was fantastic, the servers were very apologetic, and we shall return.

At our annual sister week in Maine, we make sure to include breakfast at the Merriland Farm Cafe. Yesterday, before heading up to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens we stopped in for breakfast (we recommend making a reservation online). We chose to eat outside and were not disappointed in our meal choices. Three of us chose the stuffed french toast with either peaches or blueberries and one chose the vegetarian omelet. The food was yummy and freshly made , as has been our experience in the past. The wait staff are super friendly which enhances the entire experience. I have no trouble recommending the Merriland Farm Cafe if you are in or near Wells, Maine.
