Friendly Service - Edit

The main reason I'm giving 3 stars is because the service was so friendly. The food was pretty good, but didn't merit the price. I had adobu tofu and my friend had Mediterranean stew. The stew was definitely the better deal as far as flavor and quantity.

Very disappointing - Edit

Menu is mostly seafood. There was only ONE veg/vegan main course, adobo tofu, which was OK but pricy and on the salty side. They do offer vegan ice cream and will sub almond milk in the soup. Tomato chowder was watery and too heavy on the oregano. We did better at Galyns, which is definitely not veg, but offered tasty chick pea cakes (veg) and cauliflower "steak" (vegan) with generous and delicious sides.

Delicious meal in an inviting space - Edit

Armed with the Happy Cow listing, my husband and I headed to dinner at the Blue Door. We were greeted by Bobbie Lynn, the executive chef and owner and seated at a cozy table by the window. The dining room is lovingly filled wth an eclectic mix of furniture, paintings and trinkets, and jazzy vocal standards provide the background. Many vegan choices for each course were listed on the menu, with others easily made vegan. We started with the Cafe Salad (wonderful maple dressing) and Turkish White Bean Soup, followed by the Mediterranean Vegetable Stew with tofu points and a delicate tomato fennel broth. The desserts were too enticing to pass up, so we had the Dark Chocolate and Nut Strudel and the Blueberry Sundae, both with coconut ice "cream". The cafe has a full bar, and a wonderful signature cocktail, a ginger-cranberry cosmopolitan. We wish we were staying longer in Bar Harbor so we could sample more of the menu. The sesame crusted tofu and the tofu adobo looked yummy! The cafe is a true gem, and has selections to appeal to vegans and non-vegans alike. We will be back next year!

Pros: many vegan selections , full bar, easy walk from the center of town

Cons: none

Delicious vegan dishes - Edit

This small, locally-owned eatery has great dishes on their menu that will appeal to vegans and carnivores alike. About half the menu is vegan-friendly, and dishes rotate seasonally. We had the Filipino adobo tofu and the Mediterrean tofu strudel. Both were excellent. The vegan options here are creative and are clearly prepared with just as much care as the rest of the menu. My mother had a seafood Mediterranean stew that she loved. The owner was our server, and she was funny, engaging, and provided great service. She took the time to get to know us and shared stories of her family recipes that were on the menu. It was a wonderful dining experience. There are multiple vegan dessert options, and we'll be returning to try them. I would absolutely award The Blue Door five stars if happy cow allowed. A fantastic choice for vegans (and their seafood-seeking companions) in Bar Harbor!

Pros: Delicious, creative vegan dishes, Wonderful service
