Always Special

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.

We were visiting friends in the Bath area and wanted to buy dessert for that nights dinner. Our hosts suggested we purchase our dessert at Mae's. I asked the bakery employee what she would recommend and she suggested the Key Lime Pie. When we had dessert and coffee that night the Key Lime Pie stole the show. It was absolutely... More

Stopped here for lunch on the way to the Maritime Museum on a Saturday. Place was busy. Service very slow but food was good. Easy parking and not far from the Maine Maritime Museum. A little tricky to find so use your GPS. They close at 2 PM - breakfast or lunch only.
