Can't drive trough Ellsworth, Maine without stopping in Rooster Brothers. There's a large selection of kitchen must haves and can't live withouts. Upstairs is the discounted section. Downstairs is for coffee and chocolate lovers. Bet you can't leave with just one, item that is.

I purchased an electric kettle here last year. After it burned out with only four months of use, the buyer at Rooster Brother contacted the company and arranged a replacement. These are very honorable folks who support their customers.

Great spot, and, yes, they know they're good, but they do the work to find the best and that makes it all worth it.

I like everything about this wonderful store. The food: the baked goods, cheeses and crackers, and the service: the knowledgeable clerks are enthusiastic and know the stock. This is one of my favorite go-to places for deli items and kitchen items.
