While it seems like this small family owned business would be great - this is not the case. There doesn't seem to be enough staff to keep the place running. The food takes forever, seriously. Forever. The pancakes were burned, hash browns were cut so large they weren't cooked all the way through and the eggs were very watery. Our... More

My sister and I went to this restaurant on a whim as we were shopping in the strip mall. It was lunch time and I had a hot turkey sandwich which was overly filled with delicious moist white meat turkey smothered with gravy with a wonderful bread dressing. Real, yes, REAL mashed potatoes and a big glob of cranberry sauce... More

My boyfriend and I have lived in the Brunswick/Topsham area for a little over a year and a half now and we finally tried the Fairground Café. Very laid-back atmosphere, reasonably priced and great food. It reminds me of a smaller version of Governor's Restaurant (which I would also recommend). When you get tired of chain restaurant food, try the... More

Been here about 5 times for breakfast. You get big portions, and everything was as it should be. Eggs were received the way we ordered, iced coffee was quite good, potatoes were crispy, toast was right and it cost 5.50 without coffee. 4 of us were impressed. The tables were well stocked, the waiter was excellent, even the bus boy... More

First time going there for breakfast. The omelet was good. The hash browns and the toast was burnt. I only eat the omelet. The hash browns and toast was not edible. The home fires which my boyfriend order was good. The home fries came with onions.

He ordered fried scallops, french fry's and coleslaw.His plate came out with the food sitting in a puddle of oil.The temp to properly fry at, plus the... More

I liked the setup of the café,tables both sides of room with salad bar in center. The salad bar needed a bit more imagination but it was still good. The owner and staff are very friendly and professional yet not over-done. Great word for a café def! Many of the customers are regulars and smile when a new face walks... More

We were in town to shop and decided to try lunch here. It was better than expected and a good value for the money. My wife had haddock chowder which was hearty and full of fish. I had a chicken pesto wrap, with a side of cole slaw and both were very good.
