This is a very casual place and a combination health food store and soup and sandwiches. You order at the counter. There is usually a soup of the day as well as a nice selection of cheeses.

Best selection of fine wines in Washington County. Owner knows his wines, stocks great craft beers, and a very nice selection of cheeses and pate. The local Dennysville Granola is a must buy.

Good place to get local beers and wine, plus a variety of other labels. Occasional wine tastings, pleasant staff. Hannaford is place to go for the big labels. Go here to find something unusual. Also a good selection of unusual cheeses.
