We travel to Maine often and always pull off for the Beach Pea! This place is busy all day long, every day of the year. Ample parking, limited seating in/outside. Super light cheesecake, scrumptious Eclairs with Tiramisu and crisp cookies. The Fougasse bread is so delicate. I enjoy the Cobb salad, the buttermilk dressing is delicate and creamy. Make your...

I was looking for a different Bakery and stumbled upon this beach P which had wonderful reviews. It's not a real big place but they have good quality sandwiches and amazing pastries I am going back there as soon as next week.

Along the Gourmet Mile in Kittery, there is Beach Pea Baking Co. Ever since it opened, this place is consistently, hands down, THE place to buy special cakes, pastries, fabulous bread, flaky buttery croissants, yummy cookies and all manner of baked goods. Meet your friends for coffee and a pastry or breakfast burrito. They also serve delicious lunches with many... More

While out strolling out of Portsmouth we stumbled across the Beach Pea café and it looked so inviting we just had to call in for a coffee and bite to eat. The welcome was warm and friendly and the service prompt and efficient. We chose a chicken sandwich and a cup of Mocha. I have to say honestly that the... More

They call themselves a bakery but the sandwiches are what keep us coming back. Our relatives who live in Kittery are regulars here and we know why. The food is delicious. Can get crowded and you might have to wait for a place to park but the bread, cookies, cake and sandwiches are worth the wait.

I ate at the Beach Pea Café on a Monday at 12:30. I live in Southern Maine and my friends live in Portsmouth, NH, so it was conveniently located. The parking is somewhat difficult and when we took a table inside, it was very loud, not to mention that a lot of people were either waiting to order or waiting... More

Yummy sandwiches and the best baked goods around. It may be difficult to find parking from noon to one, but the wait is well worth it. Don't miss this place for lunch or an afternoon or morning treat.

I cannot believe that all the years I have been going to Kittery that I missed this place! I had the curried chicken sandwich and my friend the turkey. Both were scrumptious. And the cakes and bakery item? You will never be the same! The ginger snap lemon cookies are addictive. The chocolate cookies had my friend in a tizzy... More
