We were looking around for a restaurant where the locals eat and found Home Kitchen Cafe. it has an outdoor deck, as well as seating inside. We had heard from others that they had great food, At least for us, that was an understatement. They are open for breakfast and lunch. It was obvious when we walked in, that this was a local favorite as it was packed.
My wife had the lobster sandwich. This was not your typical lobster roll. The lobster sandwich was on homemade bread. The meat of a full lobster was stacked between the two huge slices of bread along with lettuce, tomato, and a slight amount of mayo to keep the lobster together. There is nothing like fresh Maine lobster and this was absolutely delicious!
I had their 'cerise', which was essentially a turkey rueben. I ordered it with a side of home fries with onions and peppers. Their rye bread that they use for the cerise was scrumptious. They piled turkey, and saurkraut between the slices. It was truly one of the best ruebens i have ever had. On the other half of the plate was a huge portion of home fries; moist and delicious.
We had been told that we had to try one of their sticky buns. My wife's mom makes sticky buns and they have been a favorite of ours every holiday season. We took one of their sticky buns with us to eat later. We both felt that this was the closest we have ever had to my wife's mom's sticky buns; moist and absolutely wonderful.
I know I am using a lot of superlatives in describing this restaurant, but it was one of the best meals we had during our vacation.
