“the pizza is better than we expected; the pies are otherworldly”

our expectations for ordering take-out pizza from a small-town bakery in Maine were not particularly high - as long as it wasn't terrible, we would have been satisfied. but Little Notch turned out to be a pleasant surprise. their wood-fired pizzas were quite good. the crust was thin and crisp, and the toppings were generous. in fact, the pizzas were so much better than we expected that we ate lunch at the pizzeria the next day and it turns out their sandwiches, soups and baguettes are also pretty darn good. even if you're not in the mood for pizza or sandwiches, stop by to pick up one of their homemade raspberry or wild blueberry pies. honest: they're just like grandma used to bake. flaky crust on the outside, and packed solid with fruit on the inside. When you slice them, they don't run. It's solid fruit. picked fresh the same day they're baked. for a raspberry fanatic like me, it was a near-religious experience.

Little Notch Pizza was such a fun experience. We called ahead to place our order and had excellent help deciding which pizza to order. The customer service was pleasant and very accommodating. Our pizza was hot and fresh, delicious taste. We took our pizza to go and ate on a nearby dock as the sun set. Good pizza that made a great memory.

This used to be one of our favorite places to go for morning scones or for lunch. Unfortunately, the quality has gone down. Aslo I agree with the previous review about waiting time for sandwich is horrendous. We waited overt 30 minutes and when we asked about it, we were met with an unfriendly remark. Sandwich was very dry with no vegetables at all. I really miss the Little Notch I used to know when it opened many years ago with friendliness and great baked goods.

We ordered a focaccia pocket sandwich, which took about 20 minutes to be prepared. It was supposed to come with marinated vegetables, however, this key component was left out. We received a sandwich that was toasted with humus, a leaf of lettuce and a slice of tomato. (Toasting was unnecessary--it's the summer so who needs a hot sandwich and it dried out the humus). We were so hungry that we didn't notice that the marinated vegetables weren't there until we were nearly finished with the sandwich.

When I brought the problem to the attention of the person who seemed to be the owner/manager, his first response was, "You should have brought it to my attention right away." So it's my fault now? The defensive reaction was not appreciated. Anyway, he offered us a cookie to make it up to us (gee, thanks), but even the cookie was dry and unappetizing. Not sure the sandwich would be much better even if it had the vegetables in it.
