Super Fresh wasn't crazy about the creme fills tasted like royal icing. The apple fritter was the best I've had in a while.

I have driven from Boston to Wells Maine JUST for their breakfast. There is usually a wait because they are the bomb! But it is always worth the wait. The food is amazing, portions are good, waitstaff is extremely friendly and attentive. The honey bun french toast is to die for (unless you are diabetic!!!) No complaints whatsoever!!!

Loved this breakfast place. The hostess was super friendly. We went there at a very busy time and we're able to be seated quickly at the counter. The waitress was also very plesant and attentive. We had two basic egg dishes with bacon, home fries, cornbeef hash and toast, coffee and a blueberry fritter to go. Some of the home... More

This place was absolutely packed when we arrived just past 9 a.m. and it was easy to see why. These doughnuts are amazing. We literally ate in silence as we savoured the taste. I can personally recommend the blueberry fritter. So fresh and delicious!

Worth the wait Good breakfast. If you have breakfast there you can skip the line and get donuts for the road. A must when in Oqunquit.

I am so thankful they are not closer to Boston! The staff is running like a well oiled machine...getting customers in and out as quickly as possible. The donuts are soft and delicious and too many flavors to choose from so I got two dozen! They do have a drive through but it was quicker to go inside.

Our introduction to Congdon's was the donuts - in particular the apple fritters - served at the Beachmere 15 years ago. We then made the pilgrimage to the restaurant and now its an annual event (we live in Massachusetts or we'd go more often). The staff is friendly, the food is very good. My daughter loves the eggs benedict, my... More

If you miss donuts the way they use to be (flavorful and fresh) this is place for you. I've been to Congdons for the last 15 years and have never been disappointed! I usually skip the big breakfast and go right for what they are famous for their donuts. I have eaten there once and the omelette was great but... More
