a delight throughout

I had never been there, but met a friend for lunch. Why aren't more restaurants like this? Light, airy, bright, huge windows let the light pour in, super clean, happy staff, large selection of pastries at the counter, and one of those huge menus with tons of choices. That can be a a bad sign... read more

This cafe is hands down the best place I have ever eaten breakfast! They have awesome pecan and cinnamon rolls, raspberry stuffed French toast and Mae's Ruben with bacon, smoked turkey and cheese between homemade French toast with syrup to dip it in! My wife had Brussel sprouts with bacon, which made them pretty tasty ! I would highly recommend... More

Best breakfast in Maine in my opinion. All homemade food with a to-die-for bakery selection. If you can get past the bakery display on the way in you are doing better then me!

I don't think there is anything on the menu that is not outstanding and special. The food is perfect and well presented. The bakery items are to die for!

Have been going to Maes regularly for the past couple of years, generally for breakfast. The whole dining package is very pleasant- light, airy, sun-filled space, centrally located (occasionally difficult to park when very busy), good, largely locally-sourced food, welcoming staff, and, to be sure, an assortment of delicious baked goods- it is difficult to leave without purchasing a cookie...

Fresh, flavorful and delicious describes anything you wish to try and enjoy in this lovely spot up on the hill. The staff are so wonderful, and go above and beyond, which adds to the experience and being a repeat customer. Breads and roll choices are great - but get their early! Their bread toasted or used for sandwiches at home... More

Great breakfast and baked goods. Nice lunch choices. Amazing pecan sticky buns the size of your hand. This would be your go-to breakfast and lunch place if it was in your neighborhood.

Our first time at Mae's and it won't be our last. Very nice menu with a lot of interesting items, it made it hart to pick just one. Locally sourced food makes everything more exciting to try.
