“Always a delicious experience.”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

I've been going here for 15 years. Love the hand written menu that changes daily and the bread they bake there is amazing. Delicious specialty drinks that change nightly too. Casual dress. Great place. Make a reservation to be sure you get in. Check this place out. Your tastebuds will thank you!

“State House Augusta Maine”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

This is a beautiful area in Maine. The state house is not fancy, but it is beautiful and simple. We also visited the Blaine House which is next store. Both are free and guided tours. The Blaine House is also the Governor's house. He and his family live on the second floor. On the other side of the capital is a museum that is so worth the visit. It's about $3 admission and has four floors and you can see how the whole state was put together. Fascinating exhibits. If you have a few extra minutes, drive the back roads rather than the turnpike. The views are beautiful.

“Mr. Bullfinch should be proud.”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

The structure of the State House is a work of art. Mr. Bullfinch did a great job designing this building. It made this Maine Man proud to walk its halls. The marble and granite makes for a noble presentation. This building was made to endure the test of time. It will endure the feeble battles between political parties.

it is a beautiful building, too bad the occupants cannot get together and do some good for the image of Maine
