Breakfast was great, portions were good size too! Our blueberry pancakes were dry and a little well done but definitely edible, they were huge too! Good value for the food. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. If we’re ever in the area, we’ll definitely stop in again.

Great service, very friendly staff and excellent food. This restaurant is a quick stop off the I95 and easily accessible. All our food was very tasty especially the home made corned beef hash. The pancakes were delicious and are the size of a large dinner plate. Homemade muffins and biscuits were very good as well.

The corned beef hash and pancakes are delicious! The pancakes weren't dry at all, and they are dinner plate sized. If you order more than one, be ready to take it home. Unfortunately had to take two stars off because the service was excruciatingly slow... We waited 45 minutes to get our food. 2 people that came in 20 minutes after us and got similar meals to what we ordered got theirs before us. I don't think it was our waitress's fault, she said they were training someone in the kitchen, but I still don't think that's a good reason for other patrons to be served first. We would go again purely for the great food, just probably not on a busy Sunday again.

Food was OK. Pancakes are huge. Scrambled eggs were flat not fluffy but still good. I gave 4 stars cause server was not very attentive.

The food was exactly what I needed. I was driving down the highway and didn't want some fast food. Instead I got a delicious breakfast that tasted like homemade. The wheat bread that came with my breakfast was exceptionally good for a diner type place.

Food was ok at best.. Sausage in the Sausage gravy was more of pizza type Sausage. Flavor wasn't very breakfast like. Service wasn't much better, regulars/locals got plenty of attention, waited for coffee refill and to get my check...

Absolute best pancakes I’ve ever had in my life. Our waitress was welcoming, and a great story teller. This place as a great respite from a long road trip :)

Stopped here for a quick breakfast, and to echo other reviewers the pancakes are fantastic. Large but very fluffy. The interior is nice too, and my daughter kept pointing out all the different things she saw.

I have been eating at the Purple Cow in the summers, since they were only in Canaan. I have only ever eaten their chocolate chip pancakes!! I swear to God. In 35 years they have always tasted exactly like they did when I was 6. My Mom would canoe us over from our camp at Sibley, and we would have pancakes *"So big they we too big for the plate!"* I would be able to eat half which we would take back with another, for desert. <3 :) Since they closed their Canaan location, I became more of an annual visitor. NOW: The menu is *so ASTRONOMICALLY HUMONGOUS I FEEL BAD FOR THE KITCHEN* When did that happen? Almost as if whomever created it does not care about the ones who have to make that menu. When it's busy. And it's available 24/7!! Thank God the pancakes are the same!

Our table of 4 waited an hour and 15 minutes and only received our drink order. Food never came, no one spoke to us or explained why our food was delayed. We watched as others were served who showed up after us. Another table next to us had the same experience and we all ended up walking out together, giving up. As we left and told them why, no one apologized to us. It was the worst service I have ever experienced. Don't bother.

When I lived near the Purple Cow my wife was wrapping up college and money was tight. We really appreciated being able to eat good food at a reasonable price at the Purple Cow. Bonus points for the waitress who worked the late shift. You had to smile at this girl because she was always covered in hickies. LOL.

Decent food with good service. VERY large portions. I couldn't eat all my breakfast and that's a rarity. Our waitress was very nice and super accommodating. She seemed to know a lot of the patrons which is always a cool thing to see. For a breakfast of 5/three the food was super cheap. Our coffees were always full. There's two separate seating areas and seemed to be seat yourself.

Best hash ever. Prices and portions are very agreeable. I got the large hash. I'll be eating it for dinner lol. That's how generous the portions are. Let's not forget that the home fries were thoroughly cooked and not mush. Hats off to the purple cow

We stopped here on a road trip around New England. We were enticed by the massive pancakes we saw in photos but I dont regret getting a traditional breakfast here. The home fries were my favorite ever.

These are the biggest pancakes I’ve ever had. Wish I had just ordered one. My daughter had scrambled eggs with broccoli. Said it was delicious. Great service. Clean bathrooms. If you’re hungry for pancakes. This is your place !! They even have drive thru.

Quite possibly the largest pancakes you will see. Had two blueberry ones but could only manage one. They have a good range of typical breakfast items. Large diner but can get busy. Only about half a mile off I95 so a good stopping point to get something decent. We'll return there again.

Best breakfast I've had in Maine, hands down. The best strawberry pancake and corned beef hash I've ever had!

It is ok but Saturday morning is not the day to go; too disorganized. The lines of people is a normal thing but they don't keep a good "who's next" list and a host person should be more active in that plus wiping down tables to keep things moving better. Noisy lady barking out info but just wasn't fun. Sorry. I will go back though.

Huge pancakes of all kinds: Apple, blueberry, chocolate chip that compliment the eggs and bacon and sausage. The lunch and dinner menu looked fine as well. This is such a towny place with colorful vintage signs and plenty of hot coffee. Great prices.

It was a super cute small restaurant with pancakes bigger than one's face. Tasty fare and great price. The only issue I had was two of the waitresses were very sharp in their commands to the rest of the staff. Our waitress, however, was a young lady with a very sweet and funny demeanor. I wish I had gotten her name. I would go again.

My family of 5 and I stopped here for quick breakfast. Our waitress, Jess, I believe her name was, served us quickly and attentively. NO she did not give us attitude, or was nasty about anything, maybe the reviews are about one of the other employees because our service was great, answered our questions fully and happily. When we called an hour before our arrival she sounded so cheerful, and I’m truly glad she was the one to serve us. Come in and ask for Jess, that’s who you want to get your service from. :) Ps. If I come back to Maine this is definitely going to be a stop for me.

Service here has rapidly declined. Every single time we go we are ignored for 15+ minutes as soon as we sit down. Food takes forever to come out but it is delicious and I can understand the small kitchen. My review is mostly about the wait staff. If you want to be ignored eat here.

Be aware, the portion sizes are very generous and everything is delicious! The pancakes are massive and so good, but so are the muffins and all of the more savory breakfast food. My wife and I stopped here while road tripping and it made for an excellent start to our day! And there was so much food that we had snacks later on our drive. Very conveniently located as well.

I want to move to Maine after eating here. Like literally, it makes me want to change my 5 star ratings on other restaurants to 4 stars, because this is what should get 5 stars! Its not 5 star like in a Michelin Star, but for a diner, this is what I want. Best Hash Ever. Bar none. Like $10 for more than I should eat all day. (They do have a smaller size, but your eyes will love you for ordering the large.) The only issue is it was so good, I didn't want to stop eating.
