We were really in the mood for a pizza, and this was yummy. Not fancy, but cooked well and the crust was great. A nice little shop to sit down and enjoy a meal after a day of vacationing and hiking.

Every offering on the menu uses the highest qualty ingredients, prepared carefully, and served quickly and attentively always. Always hard to decide among the wide selection. Good value compared to so many other alternatives from a real part of the community.

Outstanding food and the VERY best service. Family owned and operated and the family are all worth knowing. Key Lime Pie? The best chocolate crusted pie I ever tasted. Very eclectic menu seafood, bbq, cookies, ICECREAM. Go meet the folks before they head back to Florida.

We happened upon the Quite Side Cafe & Ice Cream Shop one day while passing through, and are truly grateful we stopped. We spent two weeks in Maine, and most days, we made it a point to eat a meal here. Not only is the food fresh and tastes great, but the owners are lovely, kind and family- oriented. They... More
