Wine Tasting

My first wine tasting! And it was Bubbly, for New Year's Eve! It was a wonderful event. Local folks, together, tasting bubbly! The gentleman who share the information about each of the eight wines was so informative. I learned what I liked, did not, and loved! Of course my favorite was the... read more

Vic & Whit's is a local landmark, occupying decent square footage in a historic brick building on Main Street in downtown Saco. After an impressive expansion and renovation some years back, owner Mark Johnston (a former several-time mayor of the city) can always be found in the kitchen preparing sandwiches or ladling up the day's soup special. Mark is also... More

This store has had its day in the sun. It has progressively gotten worse, the quality of food and declined while the prices rise. Just yesterday I got a simple Grilled Ham and Cheese (which they now call a panini) and a bottle of Poland Spring water and the cost was $9.50. The place is a cluttered shop, while they... More

A wonderful place located on Main Street. We sat outside in the garden for lunch. It reminded us of being back in Europe! The owner is great and rich with knowledge about this little gem of a town!

My son likes the food there and I like going for the coffee and their large selection of hard to find wines. Very friendly.

Every time I come to Maine I stop at Vic & Whit's. Good selection of wines, beers and even craft sodas. Good - and hearty - sandwiches with fresh ingredients. There's not much seating indoors, so if it's good weather you can sit at an outside table. Prices can sometimes run on the steep side, and service is occasionally slow,... More

I'm a big fan of the sandwiches at Vic and Whit's, but it's much more than that. They have an amazing selection of beer and wine, undoubtedby the best selection downtown. But having said that, the sandwiches are amazing and the sides are just as good. My mother in law thinks that their cole slaw is the best she's ever... More

They have an outstanding variety of wines and beers not found in the local supermarkets and Beth will always lead you to the spirits that will compliment the food you are serving. For sandwiches, try the sliced turkey with cranberries if they have it available. Closest thing to a Thanksgiving meal in a sandwich.
