I was hunting coffee. On our fourth morning in Maine I woke to the disastrous realization I had already drunk through my stores, so an adventure was greatly needed. A family friend had dropped the name of this little spot in the world, so I decided to pay a visit. The cappuccino is very on point, and what's even better... More

From fresh veggies, to great meat cuts - to a nice wine selection, this place has it all. A real step up from the large super market experience. Do your week's shopping here!

We spent our winter break nearby and visited the Market Basket twice for lunch. Both times it was great. They make at least some (if not all) of the food here, with excellent quiches, made-to-order sandwiches, and many other take-away foods. Plus a bunch of breads, scones, and specialty foods. And wine. There's limited seating (for 6) downstairs, and some... More

What a find !! A place with homemade breads and sandwiches made to order. Quite a variety of things to choose from, unusual things made fresh.Outdoor seating, upstairs seating or food to go. No wonder it's so busy but you get waited on fairly quickly. Limited hours but not to be missed.

Always go here to grab a sandwich for work and never disappoints. Regular prices are ok but they always have half off stuff in the cooler from day before that is a real bargain. They also have really really good sweets, good drink and wine selection as well.

This place reminds me of a European cafe. So many yummy goodies to discover. Always like to stop in and have a nice cup of dark roast Carrabasset cofffee and see what they got for tasty treats. Never disappointed with this place.
