“Always Lively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

I love Maine Street in Brunswick - it's just wonderful to walk down, take in the shops and restaurants, run into locals, grab a bite at the Framer's Market in the square. There's always something to see. Last time I was there it was for the Fourth of July parade - loved all the old cars coming down the street. It's a quintessential old Maine town that makes me feel cozy.

Nice local merchants, an ever-expanding array of independentlyl-owned restaurants, a real book store, farmers market, skataing in the winter. If I could live here I would.

“Dining mecca in a compact setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Maine Street Brunswick has a great variety of dining options including small coffee shops, bakeries, sandwich shops, breakfast nooks, pub restaurants and fine dining of practically all ethnic food choices! And the Mall with the gazebo is a wonderful place to hang out, enjoy a lunch, play with kids or pets, or enjoy a concert or other local event.

“New Meets Old”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Old houses line one side of the road separated from the businesses by a park that is open everyday to anyone who wants to enjoy it. Farm markets, hot dogs / sandwich vendors, a gazebo. During the winter the fire department floods the green and makes a skating park. Up the road there's another green area that separates Bowdoin College from the businesses and houses. Makes a nice shopping trip just by starting at one end and walking to the other end.
