I live up the road and I've never been to this place I've heard from many people the donuts are outstanding. I was in the mood for an apple fritter and I decided to try this place. It was probably the best one I've ever had. Went back a couple of days later got a breakfast sandwich which was just... More

This is a must for us if we find ourselves within a reasonable distance!! The food, the people, the prices, the quantity and, above all, the quality are second to none!!! My wife and I have been steady customers for 7 years now. We travel from Fall River, MA. for the greatest breakfast around!!

I have found the donuts to be excellent. If you like jelly donuts without sugar coating, they will often go fill you a shell. If you eat there, expect slow service is mediocre food.

We love it here, since our first visit a year ago we have driven up there from Salisbury just to get lunch more than once. The people are great and the food is very good with quite a bit of variety. I am rarely a doughnut eater, but I tried one and it was very good (coconut). We feel lucky... More

Always a warm and friendly place to eat. They always have great specials along their regular menu. The wait staff is always friendly and will ask any questions you might have. The food is delicious and always delivered fast and hot. I love the pumpernickle bread and aways take an extra loaf home. Great place to eat.

No other place in the area compares. The Doughnuts are insanely good: Apple Fritters and the famous Maple Cream are what you need. Their Benedicts are really good too. Only bad thing is the prices are higher than they need to me but, it's well worth it.

Congdon's been around since 1955. If you love doughnuts visit and you'll see why. So many choices ... so little time. In Summer there is always a line and often they run out of my favorite doughnuts. I've been there for breakfast many times. Always friendly service and good value food. Again in season you will have to wait.

I am not a donut person but would not miss a weekend in Maine without getting Congdon;s donuts. It used to be honey dipped but our waitress gave us a great tip on keeping donuts in the refrigerator and next day beep them for 10-12 seconds. I do this with their lemon donuts and yum they are so good and... More

Family loves the donuts. A definite must stop for those that love donuts. (And I'm not much of a donut lover!) Great breakfast too.

Best handmade donuts I've ever had, hands down. And I HATE donuts. Didn't want to try these until a coworker brought some in and OMG YUM!
