Aunt Millie really did own and run the store with her brothers. But she is long passed and the new owners have renovated the old building to perfection with wood floors, tin ceilings and lots of charm. Millie's is open from 6am-6pm which doesn't explain why they have a full bar with micro-brews on tap and a huge selection of wines. We ordered at the counter where a friendly woman told us all about Aunt Millie and how she remembered coming to the store in the days when Millie was there. They don't sell clam boots anymore but they do carry groceries including fresh local greens, yarn, art,
and a little of this and that. The menu includes breakfast burritos, wraps and sandwiches of your choice, lobster rolls, salad and what we ordered: crab rolls and haddock chowder. The crab rolls were piled high with nothing but crab and a little mayonnaise. The chowder was creamy and very good. At the counter were fresh baked pies sold by the slice and other tempting fresh baked goods. Organic coffee is $1.50 a cup and tasted superb. We also ordered iced tea which they were out of for the moment but one of the staff quickly offered to make me some from fresh hot tea. Now that, is service! It was a rainy Saturday around 2:00 and Millie's was half full with diners enjoying beers and wine with their sandwiches. Indoor seating is for about 25 or 30 with a few more tables out on the front porch. Millie's is worth a visit, if you are just passing through on Rt 1 or as a destination it itself.
