Good food--worth the wait

Stopped in for a late lunch. It was 2:30 and there was standing room only so we knew this must be a good place to eat! My kids had ice cream--lots of choices and big scoops. I... read more

We split a sandwich platter here, to ensure we could have dessert because it smelled so delicious. The sandwich was very good but the pie was killer! We each had blueberry pie alamode, it was incredible. Great crust, great filling, the absolute perfect pie.

If you are looking for a snack in a quaint little town, this is a great place. We had some wonderfully tasting ice cream with good selection of flavors. The pies were delicious and some of the biggest slices I've ever seen! They also had some huge chocolate cookies that we purchased that were wonderful. This was a great place... More

If you are looking to have a piece of Maine Blueberry Pie, this is the place. My wife good not finish her piece, but I did manage to eat all my pie with some vanilla ice cream. As to see the pie before they cut it, a work of art.

On a Sunday morning drive around the "quiet side" went in to just get a cup of coffee which turned out to be a very tasty New England brew with Hood half and half. Then ... could not resist purchasing several huge home made macaroons that were piled high on the counter. These are the best macaroons we have ever... More

This is a wonderful ice cream shop!!! The ice cream here is superb and so are their pie's and cookies!!! However, the building is small and the staff is not the nice cheerful friendly staff that I wanted. Not to say that they were mean or rude but they just went extremely friendly. All in all great Ice Cream and... More

We ate here for lunch today, and it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. The pizza and lobster stew are fantastic. You have to try this place, the service is great as well!!

I can only echo the good things that past patrons have said about this excellent cafe. We ate here instead of at our hotel which was noisy and expensive. The waiting staff were from Eastern Europe and they were patient and worked hard. Spoke to both the Owner and his wife who were very pleasant.

Have gone to this cafe for several years running. They serve lobster rolls, friend fish, crab cakes, homemade pies and ice cream. Food is consistently high quality and delicious. We are partial to the crab cakes, scallops and ice cream. Very nice effective staff. Nice people / solid comfort food. This place is far better than the many tourist traps... More
