Sweet Pea's Cafe
We have recently adjusted our reservations platform and are working with Resy.com for all of our online reservations. Please visit Resy.com for all seating options.
We are a Farm to Table cafe, serving local, sustainable food.
Enjoy Bar Harbor's hospitality with fresh oysters, wood fired pizza, and local Maine vegetables and meats. We have a large patio with views of a duck pond, horses, and ospreys.
In consideration of the islands ever-changing weather, we do not display our full table availability online. Please call for a reservation if you do not see a time that suits you. We host our Happy Hour(s) from 3-5pm daily, and a limited menu available from 4-5pm.
We had a reservation for 6:45 and were running late. We were unable to let them know due to both a busy phone signal and poor WiFi coverage. We showed up for our table of 4 at 7:30 to a packed house with dozens waiting. We were sure we were out of luck, yet there was our table ready for us! Thanks Sweet Pea's!
Very tasty farm to table restaurant. Loved the atmosphere, food and drink! Service was great too.
Great, fresh, wood-fired selections. Vegan-friendly.
Had high hopes for this place. It started to rain while eating outside and we were not given any option to eat inside. Really nice location, though.
We love this place! They have great food and friendly service. We always enjoy our meals at Sweet Pea’s.
One of our favorite spots in the area. The mussels and Korean style ribs were outstanding. Live the wine shop next door!
Casual, low-key, and I always love the food!
Warm and friendly, cozy yet sophisticated, with non-pizza options for those avoiding carbs—Sweet Peas cooks up that magic mix that makes for full-family happiness.
Great food and drinks, overlooking a field with horses!
What a fun place to visit. It may have been the BEST pizza that I have ever tasted. Also fun cocktails and a good list of beers. It was definitely worth leaving down town to find this nice surprise.
We are always please when we go to Sweet Pea's. The hospitality is great. The serving staff attentive. Their ability to accomodate a dietary restriction while maintaining the quality and tastiness of the dish was excellent.
Excellent, fresh food. Quite noisy when it's crowded.
Great food. Welcome respite from fried seafood of medium quality. All fresh. All great. We are here twice. Check it out.
Our reservations were at 7:30 and the table was ready. We were seated, then we ordered drinks and food. Our apps were served quickly, but after that there was an extremely long lag time. We were finally told that "your order ticket was lost" and food would be ready in 5 minutes. Free salads for everyone. It was a long, drawn out meal. Very expensive, although the food was delicious. It seemed like the people sitting at the bar got much better service than our family did.
Sweet Pea's is one of our favorite restaurants and continues to hit high marks in every way!
Real food in Bar Harbor! And GOOD real food as well!
Everything Great food, service great oysters, didn't have the pizza but looked wonderful
The food was great. I was impressed with this place. Next time I’m in the area I will stop by.
Fabulous casual dining. Small, cozy, cafe with farm to table offerings. Felt welcome the minute we walked in even tho they were full. Walked us outside and brought drinks immediately. Ate here twice in four days. Flatbreads to die for. Fresh veggies perfectly prepared, wonderful wait staff, draft beer selection, and they make their vodka tonic with Fever Tree. Wish I could take them home to California.
Sweet Pea's gets 5 stars from us on all accounts - it's our very favorite place to go for dinner on MDI.
Sweet Peas is the must visit restaurant in Bar Harbor. A little off the beaten path ( on Route 3) but just five minutes on foot from my house. Sweet Peas always exceeds my expectations. Imaginative menu, snappy cocktails, engaging staff, what a view. It’s one of my favorite places to dine anywhere. And I love restaurants. Oh yeah lots of parking.
Came in for Mother’s Day with the in-laws for our first experience at Sweet Pea and couldn’t have been more pleased. Every aspect of the afternoon was perfect and we are so excited to find our new favorite restaurant on the island. We look forward to visiting often.
We are locals and often visit... Very happy with everything!!
This is a very food-forward, farm-to-table type of place in Bar Harbor, ME - worth the trip and the cost for those who value excellent fresh ingredients and creative menus. The service was friendly and attentive but low-key. We enjoyed everything we ordered and could have gone another night to try more dishes.
Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff, great flavors, and an energetic vibe make this a very happening spot for a good meal. Best for folks who like a noisy buzz, not so much if you prefer a quiet experience. It's a small space, with the tables very close together.
Loved the farm-to-table freshness, quality and humane standards for the meat, and the veggies were sublime. Ample gluten-free meal options, but none for dessert unfortunately.
Great place for lunch and dinner outside Bar Harbor. Great food, wine, beer and friendly service.
The food was exceptional. Definitely heads above other restaurants in Bar Harbor.
Great flavors and definitely farm fresh. Not a lot to choose from on the menu, but enough to please everyone. Loved the outdoor seating with the fire. Pleasant staff and a nice change of pace from the typical Bar Harbor restaurants.
We were visiting the Bar Harbor area on vacation and discovered Sweet Pea. We loved it so much that we scheduled a reservation to go back. Servers were spot on, food was fantastic (you must save the juice from the mussels appetizer for dipping the pizza in - YUM!!), and the Ahoy Monte drink was the best!!
great staff. Impressive current menus. seasonal. great energy.
I wish we could give this restaurant 10 stars! They went above and beyond -- without being asked -- to make our anniversary beyond special, including giving our three-year-old a farm tour during dinner so that we could relax. And the food and cocktails were absolutely incredible -- you could taste the love and care that went into everything that we ate. You must go here!
LOVE THIS PLACE! The best food on MDI. Locally sourced, creative and delicious!
We have overlooked this restaurant in the past, expecting another nuvo pizza place. That was a mistake. The menu is small, but the food is delish. All freshly prepared with local ingredients. The mussels and the veggie pizza were great. Dog friendly on the outside patio that overlooks a field. Very friendly and professional staff. We plan to return.
Fresh organic food and wood fired oven for pizza. Very accommodating to changes in items. Menu small but sufficient. Excellent addition to restaurant scene in Bar Harbor.
What a wonderful addition to the MDI dining scene! Intimate restaurant with inside and outside seating right next to the winery and overlooking the farm and the charming two horses who grace the meadow. Very inventive but simple food. Among the best Oysters available ... and local. Incredible and unique Pizza and much more ... including a fine wine list.
Our new discovery this summer. Enjoyed the dining several times. Consistent and lots of hospitality. Oysters, to die for...
Small menu with carefully selected ingredients. Has an intimate feel. Good value, particularly compared to Bar Harbor restaurants.
We have been to Sweet Peas twice before. This time, the service was erratic or non-existent. Shame on the kitchen for no QC -there were two unopened musselsi n the order. A fire from outside was blowing into the restaurant making for an uncomfortable and very smoky experience. Out clothing reeked of smoke.
Great food, great scenery and great staff, I love this place
This was just an enjoyable experience. The oysters were amazing. Definitely will be returning in the coming weeks. Also appreciated being able to make reservations. Waitstaff and the manager were really personable, they made you feel like they knew you and were so welcoming. Great hospitality! Thanks again.
