“Best Coffee”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

You must visit Rooster Brother when you are in Ellsworth. Why? Delicious hot coffee from around the world, roasted on site. The best iced coffee you've ever tasted. A select offering of homemade pastries and cookies, sandwiches and breads. You can buy deli meats and salads- their chicken salad is not to be missed - and fine cheeses, olives pates. And this is just a portion of their business! They sell pasta, specialty foods, wine, cooking equipment, cook books, candles, soap, dishes, glassware and WHEW! so much more.

It is THE destination of folks all over Maine who know their stuff - food-wise, coffee-wise and cooking-wise. Go there today.

“Epic Foodie Shop”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

If you like to cook and eat then Rooster Bros is the store for you. They have a ridiculous array of cookware and accessories, roast coffee on premises, and have a super knowledgeable and passionate staff...all in deep Downeast Maine. Don't miss it.

“Gormet Coffee, Gormet Food”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Wonderful home-roasted coffee, cooking supplies, cold cuts, salads, wines at very good prices. A gem in downtown Ellsworth. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Discounts in the summer upstairs. We visit at least once a week.

“Great Space!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Everything under the sun, to ensure a good meal is in your near future. A great shop with nice selection of bread and cheeses. The coffee is plentiful and hearty! Loved it! The staff very kind and helpful.
Stopped in on Monday for the "acclaimed" pretzel and they do not make them on Monday. Stopped back on Wednesday at 3:30 and they quit making them at 3. :( Boo hoo!
So they gave me the last one they had for free and she asked me not to be too critical of it.
Yes, it was cold and no longer a "soft" pretzel but still very tasty and flavorful. My advice: be sure to plan accordingly to get a fresh one. :)

“Great Cup of Joe”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

My brother-in-law brought me in for a cup of coffee and it was delicious. Can't beat $1.50 for a nice strong cup. The store itself is quite nice, a cook and chefs dream!
