“Portland North”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

This is a friendly restaurant with an upscale atmosphere that takes pride in serving expertly prepared dishes from locally sourced ingredients. If you are in town for breakfast or brunch on the weekends or are looking for a great dinner spot, the Pickup is a good choice. You will not be disappointed. They are now serving beer and wine as well. The meatloaf is fabulous, fresh pasta dishes and even the steak burger is better than I have ever had before, with a fresh baked bun.

The breakfast here is great! All of their food comes from local farmers. I hear they do dinners now, too!

“Best Breakfast in Skowhegan.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

OK, the only breakfast I had outside the conference I attended in Skowhegan but a great one. Great location and fun to watch the farmers market setting up while I ate. Great service and food was well presented with attention paid to sourcing and quality. And the coffee was excellent. Don't miss it.
