If you want amazing doughnuts or an incredible breakfast, go to Congdon's. Staffed by locals and open all year (winter hours are reduced) it's where who's who goes to chew.

We ate breakfast here and ordered our doughnuts to go. The selection of doughnuts is impressive! We had a bit of a wait since it was mid morning but well worth it! They even offered everyone who was waiting doughnut holes!

Awesome place! Great breakfast and donuts are bleeping awesome. Eat to your hearts content. Only drawback is the wait, if you are in a hurry don't expect to be seated under 1/2 hour or longer, depending on what time you get there.

We originally went for breakfast to eat in the restaurant, but there is always a line, so we opted to get donuts and a breakfast sandwich, with drinks. The donuts are about $18 a dozen but WELL worth it. They are made fresh every morning and have huge variety. They have some seats you can sit and eat when just... More
