Scarborough has fast-food row, but go down a little further on Route 1, right past Scarborough Downs, and you'll find Mainely Wraps. Stopped in for the first time on a Saturday morning to try their breakfast wraps for a pick-me-up as we were raking leaves that morning. I will never eat a breakfast wrap made anyplace else. They are wonderful! They have a $5 special everyday for lunch. The price and quality cannot be beat. And if you sign up for the e-mail service, you will know what the special is to you can plan your lunch. The take-home dinners are also wonderful and very affordable. I had the butternut squash ravioli with steamed vegetables and brown butter sauce the other day. It was enough food for two people to share. Their mac and cheese is not to be missed. All of the desserts and muffins are homemade. Sometimes gluten-free alternatives are available. The owners, Nephtali and Rich Maynard, are very friendly and accommodating.

The previous reviews on Mainely Wraps are spot-on; this place has great, fresh food and very reasonable prices for the quality. The Scarborough location has only been open for a month, but I’ve already eaten there 10-12 times. I can wholeheartedly recommend every wrap, panini, soup, salad and dessert I’ve had. Give them a try – you’ll be glad you did.

When the owners (Napthali & Rich) told us that they were opening a year-round restaurant, we couldn't have been happier! After getting hooked on their wonderful food in their OOB summer place, we wanted to have a go-to place through the other months. Yeah!!

Our favorite wraps plus homemade muffins, cookies, & whoopie pies are available, with the addition of delicious soups, salads, and other yummy foods -- served by some of the nicest & friendliest people around. The restaurant is warm and comfortable.

You can call ahead for lunch orders, as Mainely Wraps can get busy. There has been such a need for a nice lunch/early dinner place in Scarborough.

I totally second Voyjean's enthusiastic & detailed review!

We discovered Mainely Wraps just a few days before it closed its Old Orchard Beach location for the season. We were intrigued by the rave reviews that propelled that location to the Number 1 ranking in OOB on Tripadvisor and we found that they were well-deserved – the wraps were incredibly fresh and delicious. So we were thrilled to learn it was opening a new location in Scarborough on October 1. We marked that date on our calendar and were on hand to check out their new digs on opening day – and have made several subsequent visits.

The new place (the former location of Federal Spice) is far more spacious than the OOB shop. It’s cheerful and has lots of comfy seating. But most important, the food is still fantastic. There are 14 creative wraps and several Panini and salads, along with a couple of soups, on offer. The sandwiches range from $5.59 to $6.89 and come with a side of chips and a pickle. Given the generous size and the high quality of the ingredients in the sandwiches, this is a great deal. The greens used are the freshest I’ve seen anywhere. The meats are first-rate. The innovative combinations mesh perfectly.

Mainely Wraps also offers a daily wrap special for just $5, and a “Pick Two” deal for $6.89 that gets you two of the following: a cup of soup, a half Panini, or a small salad, along with chips and a pickle.

We’ve now tried over half of their wraps; the Acadia Panini (fresh mozzarella, basil pesto, tomato and spinach); the New England beer cheese soup and the sherry-based lobster stew; and the Cape Neddick salad (grilled chicken, avocado, hard-boiled egg, applewood smoked bacon, blue cheese crumbles, tomato and red onion on a bed of lettuce with chipotle-ranch dressing). All have been excellent to phenomenal.

And the goodies in the case are too tempting to resist. We’ve had an enormous oatmeal cookie that was probably the best we’ve ever had and a blueberry muffin that was very moist and overflowing with tasty berries.

The web site posts the daily specials and the soups (the 2 soups on offer change daily, with lobster stew normally being available every Tuesday) early each morning, which is a nice touch. Some of the soups we haven’t had a chance to try have sounded delicious – pumpkin bisque; Kobe beef goulash; chicken and sausage gumbo.

What could be better than eating such delicious, healthy food in pleasant surroundings? Getting to interact with owners who are as sweet, friendly and enthusiastic as the proprietors of Mainely Wraps are. They are icing on the cake.

Welcome to Scarborough, Mainely Wraps – we are thrilled to have you here.

Once we found Mainley Wraps we went there every day for lunch. I would walk up from the beach get our wraps and take them back to the beach for lunch. Very tasty, fresh homemade ingredients and lots to pick from. Must be a dozen different wraps. There are more that wraps too, they also have breakfast items. I had the lobster roll one day - it was great. Our teenage daughter missed lunch the first day as she slept past noon - we were on vacation so why not. The second day she joined us for lunch but decided that she didn't want a wrap she wanted fried chicken strips and fries from another takeout. However when we were on the beach eating our lunch she tried my wrap and loved it. The next morning as we were leaving OOB we had to stop at Mainely Wraps for her to have a wrap for breakfast. Highly recommended - much better than the greasy pizza further down the street and super friendly people operating it. They truly want to make sure you are a satisfied customer. Not many businesses operate under that motto these days. But that results in great reviews like this.
