“Upscale lunch-style fare. Great deli, best soups you'll find. Gourmet bakery.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We're always thrilled with the food. Deli for made-to-order sandwiches with a large variety of top ingredients. Best batch of freshly made soups I've found anywhere. A top-notch bakery, serving muffins and gourmet cupcakes and so on. My favorite part of the bakery offering is the complete cakes and pies they bake downstairs, offered in different sizes. Order ahead or take your chances on what's in the case. Take home and place on nice china and you're serving gourmet desserts to your guests.

I love this place. Plenty of seating including a nice deck for the nice weather days.
The staff is helpful and attentive.

“Great place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We have lunch here several times whenever we are in Brunswick. They have excellent sandwiches and soups, and their cookies and desserts are delicious. They are open every day from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

“Great place for Sunday lunch in Brunswick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were spending a Sunday in Brunswick while visiting from North Carolina and were so glad to find Wild Oats for lunch! It wasn't too crowded when we went, so we got right in. Yummy selection of soups and sandwiches (we had a panini and some delicious seafood stew)--and delicious baked goods (flourless chocolate cake was one of the best I've ever had!). Nice, casual setting, reasonable prices. Would definitely return were it not 1000 miles from home!

“Great soups, really busy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

You can get consistently great salads, soups and sandwiches here. It is a local favorite, but don't be in a hurry. The lines at the registers are always too long and there is often no seating. The place continues to do well despite the management challenges.

“Delicious breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

My husband and I were visiting the Freeport area and saw some great reviews for Wild Oats in Brunswick and decided to take a ride over and try it for ourselves. We were not disappointed. I had a breakfast burrito and my husband had ham, egg and cheese on a biscuit. They were both very good. They had a wonderful variety of baked goods to choose from. It looked like it would have been an even better place for lunch. They had a wonderful deli, lots of sandwich choices and a great selection of soups. The variety was amazing! So, if you are ever in the neighborhood you need to stop in for a meal or snack!
