After eating so much lobster, it was a great change to have a delicious hamburger! This was a hole in the wall dive, just the way I like it. I have learned that the best meals come at places just like this. We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 napkin hamburger, properly named!!!!!

We stopped for breakfast this morning. The breakfast menu was very limited. I was looking forward to enjoying an omelette but that was not an option. This is a no-frills breakfast and the prices are a little bit higher than what I had expected. The coffee was excellent, it was from Rock City Roasters in Rockland. For 2 single pancakes, 4 eggs, 4 pieces of toast, 2 coffees and a juice we paid over $20.00. Service was top notch and the convenience to the airport was what we were seeking.

The burgers here really do deserve their Food Network praise! VERY good! I had the 7 napkin burger and it was a big, flavorful, well cooked mess.

Tried the "Best Burger in Maine" rated by Food Network Magazine. Cooked just the way I liked it-medium rare, was so tasty and juicy I just took my time and enjoyed it. Comes with a pickle and chips. Small seating area inside and picnic tables next to the Post Office. If in the area of Rockland Me, This is a nice place to stop at.
