“Pastries, Paninis and Pizza, Oh My!”
Review of Fresh Bakery & Market - CLOSED

Fresh Bakery & Market
Description: The all new Fresh Bakery, located in Bay View Landing, adjacent to our restaurant, is Camden's newest decadent, culinary creation. The bakery features hand-made artisan breads, scratch-made pastries such as croissants, Danishes, eclairs & scones, as well as cookies, bars, tarts & pies, all made using traditional European methods. We also offer fresh brewed local & regional coffees, espresso drinks, hand-tossed artisan pizzas, Panini sandwiches, and delicious homemade soups.Our hearth-baked breads are crusty & chewy made from the finest grains, nuts, olives and dried fruits. Our breads have a moist crumb, and lots of flavor because we allow them to rise slowly, and we shape every loaf by hand.Visit us on the landing and enjoy something sweet or savory. Our cute & cozy little bakery, serviced by our warm & welcoming staff, is the perfect place to sit, savor, and enjoy the finer things in life.

Right next door to the restaurant Fresh, is the Fresh Bakery & Market. Two different places.

The bakery is wonderful. Maine cottage decor, cheerful, clean with the aromas of fresh-baked bread and pastries. There is a large variety of breads. Some are baked daily, other types are baked only on certain days of the week. Check out the bread menu on the web site link provided by them. The breads are dense, some loaded with nuts, cranberries, etc., all very flavorful and different.

The lunch menu is not extensive, mostly sandwiches, but they also offer soup and pizza that can be bought by the slice. There is enough variety that everyone will find something they like. Their sandwiches are delicious with all fresh ingredients on their own fresh-baked bread, all living up to their name. Never had a bad pastry there, all very decadent and sinful and worth the calories. Have not tried the pizza yet, so cannot comment on it.

Coffee is delicious, you choose your own out of thermal carafes, so you can mix and blend to your heart's desire.

The only downside is that it's small and when busy, it gets congested and customers get confused as it's hard to tell if people are in line to order or just looking. It is also pricey. For the Camden area, the prices are on par with other similar offerings, but keep in mind you do get very high quality food here. There are a few tables to sit at inside, but when busy it can be loud, so take your goodies and go sit on a bench along the water and enjoy the scenes.

Another great feature is the hours. From their website: Sunday - Thursday: 7am - 8pm; Saturday & Sunday: 7am - 9pm. You can run in before work and grab a coffee and scone, or stop in on a nice night for a treat and then a stroll along the water to burn of the calories from the piece of cheesecake you just woofed down.

We ate dinner here one night and came back for lunch the next day. The food was fresh and delicious. We had some of the best seafood we ever had. The service was great. We loved this restaurant.

Fresh sits down in the public landing area of the Harbor. It has good seating with ample space between tables. The restaurant has a good bar with some nice specialty drinks. We had the lobster and the lobster ravioli for dinner. Very tasty. We recommend this restaurant. And right next door is the bakery where you can buy some delicious pastries to take on a picnic, home or back to your room for a late night snack.

Came here for some breakfast and it was very good (just some pastries and drinks). We liked watching the bakers work in the open kitchen.

Quick service, good food, great prices.
Not to be missed for a fast fix! Deserts are great! Large assortment of Rustic Breads too!
Nearly on the water - grab your food and walk to the water (:
