Worth finding!

It's about a ten minute drive off of route one but my only regret is that we didn't make it back during our trip. Had an amazing lunch. It's tiny so unless you get lucky you may have to wait. But everything is delicious. If you do have a wait you will be well entertained by drooling over the... read more

I agree with Andi's review. It's very much changed since the new owners came in. The store selection is down by at least a third and many of the imported European items are gone. Not worth the drive to buy stuff commonly available elsewhere! The store samples, even the pickles (!) are gone. As for the restaurant, the menu has... More

I have only dined in for breakfast. Morse's is a tiny restaurant with a big shop and deli counter. The shop is packed with very interesting international foods and other products. The meats, pickles, and sauerkraut are superb. Breakfast was unusual, and sweet. I had crepes that were too sweet for breakfast, to my taste. However I have heard rave... More

Don't expect the same service or products. They are not what they were. The quality seems to have gone down with the new owners. I will not travel to this out of the way location for Morses any longer. The sauerkraut was almost dry and the did not have the red cabbage to go and did not offer to make... More

Not a place you'd just stumble across during your travels in Maine, but the different states represented by the cars in the parking area show that it's a destination. A very small restaurant with what seems to me to be pretty authentic German food - limited menu however. Choice of 2 schnitzels - wife had the Jaeger schnitzel (mushroom gravy)... More

Set 7 miles off Route 1, this German-style market with a tiny area of tables specializes in homemade sauerkraut, pickles and relish. Definitely worth the ride - especially if you've never had fresh sauerkraut, which varies in taste depending on how long it's been in the brine. We had sandwiches - delicious, though I didn't love the seitan in the... More

The restaurant is attached to a wonderful shoppe. From an old world butcher and a selection of meats and sausages you would find in Europe. Morses is know for there sauerkraut and pickles. It has been in business forever. The cheese selection, groceries and candies are extensive. Many samples abound. Enter the small eatery; cozy, ratskellar like in red and... More

Every time I've been to Morse's I've enjoyed their selections of edibles: from unusual mustards, their very good sauerkraut, great sandwiches (eat there or take out), European cookies/cracker selections. They have much more (deli meats, cheeses, etc.). It can be a busy place so call ahead if you want to take out sandwiches.

Great German inspired menu but more gf options would inspire this local to frequent more often! The deli is to die for! So many items that you cannot find outside of Philly or NYC!
