Dropped in Thorndike's for a late lunch after walking the Rockland Breakwater light. We were hungry and got our orders placed quickly for lunch. The food was fine but took longer than we expected to be delivered. No complaints at all on the ice cream - huge selection of flavors. The shop is cute - just what you would expect... More

We only had ice cream here, but the menu sounded intriguing. The staff were super friendly and helpful to us and each other. The flavors are fun and delicious, although the servings are smallish. I wouldn't bother with anything less than a medium unless you want to eat light. Of course I'm an ice cream-aholic, so take that with a... More

I enjoyed eating my after dinner dessert there. However I will say the young ladies that work there are NOT the friendliest I've met. As you can see by the images I posted the flavors are amazing. The ice cream is just creamy delicious and decadent. However, I felt like the employees didn't care whether we were there or not.... More

I eat here 2 - 4 times a week. The staff are friendly and greet you by name. Fantastic daily specials of Pizza by the slice. Some of the best pizza I've had and definitely the best in the midcoast! I'm not an Ice Cream guy but they have a sweet classic ice cream shop here too!

Being away from home, you never know what you're going to get...add on a food allergy and it's a real challenge. I googled GF restaurants in the Rockland/Camden area. Thorndike was on the list...we picked it and was so satisfied that we did!! Best, I mean THE best gluten free pizza I've ever had in 11 years of being a... More

We stopped for ice cream on a recent Sunday. What a charming little place (I love the vintage screen door!). What a nice staff. So patient and helpful. It was hard to decide. The dozens? of flavors are displayed in a colorful hand-lettered list on the blackboard wall behind the counter. We liked the first scoop we got so much... More

My kids and I love love this place. The pizza slices are great, with fresh toppling and fab crust. When we're really good, we get a whole pizza and its a big treat!
