We were surprised at the line going out the door when we arrived at Congdon's before 9 a.m. on a fall Saturday morning. But that was just the doughnut line! There was also a short wait for seating in the restaurant, and a line of cars at the drive through! That should have been a hint for the treats in... More

Eggs cooked the way I like them -a gigantic slice of ham- and great multigrain toast- Server promptly refilled our coffee cups. Whats not to love!! There are always new items to try on the menu board-try them for something new and out of the ordinary. Can't leave without getting doughnuts to bring back to the grandchildren. If we were... More

Simply put this place has some of the freshest and tastiest doughnuts we've had. I get the Raspberry filled and her the Bavarian cream. We got a dozen this time so we supplemented our favorites with the: apple fritter, small cinnamon rolls (delicious), sugar, sugar raised, chocolate buttercrunch(yum), and a lemon. The line on a Sunday at 10:00 am took... More

My mother and I made two visits to buy two bakers dozen donuts when we visited Wells on two separate days. Brought some home to Connecticut to share with family and friends. The donuts are the best anywhere. The donuts are filled to the max with jelly, apples, cream, etc. We make this trip once a year, and each time... More

We went on a Saturday morning to get breakfast and couldn't believe how busy it was. First we had to find a place to park and then had quite a wait for a table but we didn't really mind because we were on vacation and it was very entertaining watching the long lines of people getting doughnuts. Our breakfast was... More

Three years ago we bought our first blueberry pie at Congdon's Doughnuts. Knowing that we were going to visit Wells, Maine in September, I called Congdon's and ordered two blueberry pies. True to their word, my blueberry pies were ready upon our arrival. And just like three years ago, they were absolutely delicious. We also bought a dozen doughnuts which... More

Their homemade hash was excellent! But , you do have to request it. The multigrain bread was equally as good, poached eggs were a little over done. However our waitress picked right up on it, really great service!

Stop here whenever we stay in Wells. The doughnuts are so fresh. Always crowded. A testament to the establishment of the popularity of this local. They are also a breakfast restaurant. Ample parking..
