The Rock City Café is just about a mandatory stop for us whenever we hit the Thomaston/Rockland area several times per year. This café takes a ton of pride in their brewing capabilities, and it shows. Rarely will you see, at least away from a major city, a menu board with so many different beverage options from which to choose.... More

This is a "come back to" place. Have called here on every visit to Maine. People who care serving people who appreciate it. Superb blueberry muffin (what better in Maine). Great coffee too.

I was told to come and try this little cafe if I wanted to have some yummy coffee. In so very glad that I did. They had lots of different kinds of coffee types (all locally roasted down the street at their own roastery) and any number of coffee drinks. We had some muffins and got some scones to take... More

Only had lattes, good thing was: they had almond milk for my wife. Vibe was good, fairly quiet for the number of people inside. We would come back.

We ended up here by default for a late lunch, and had flavorful and creative fresh sandwiches, friendly service and yummy blueberry cheesecake. Not as crowded as another place around the corner that wouldn't seat us at 2:05. A happy accident!

We came here for lunch. The food was great and the service was terrific. Very interesting dishes. I had the fried green tomato BLT and my wife had the Pastrami Reuben which she thought was delicious. I also got an order of Blueberry Cheesecake to go. I loved it! Thanks!

I love breakfast foods, but don't usually rave about them. But this was literally the best breakfast wrap I've EVER had! I had plain egg and cheese, which at other places might be bland, but here the flavor of the cheese was so delicious, I can't figure out why it was so amazing! My husband had the egg, cheese and...

I have eaten here three times, and the breakfast is fast, good, and filling. The Italian sausage omelet will overwhelm you! Good waitresses.

Vibrant place, always full so you know it's good. People who work here are great, the food is very good, and you can usually find a seat. There's also a small but excellent used bookstore at the back of the space. Always enjoy coming here.
