“Carefully selected excellent groceries as well as sandwiches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Tara Hire runs this very busy little grocery all year round. Right now its the only grocery, and a central part of Monhegan's experience for year round residents or if you want to stay here for a while. If you are a day tripper she carries excellent, locally sourced crabmeat sandwiches chowders, and interesting soups. Locally sourced, for Tara, includes an effective relationship with the Crown of Maine which carries all foods Maine as well as great baguettes that she makes early in the morning, cookies, and focaccia this morning. She also picks out an excellent variety of wines and beers as well as very fresh vegetables. The Carina has always been a eagerly anticipated part of our time on this working island that nonetheless welcomes its summer visitors thoughtfully.

“Great sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

The service is efficient and business-like, not really friendly, but the sandwiches are really good and there is a good selection of any other things that you might want to add to your picnic or to just have on hand for snacking. We got our lunch here 4 days in a row.
