Really great coffee and yummy baked goods make this a terrific breakfast/brunch stop in the midcoast. Snag the four-top by the front window and enjoy the people watching on Main Street.

Stopped in for a quick mid-morning business meeting, and really enjoyed the clean friendly atmosphere. Wasn't supposed to get a meal, but the choices were hard to avoid. I'll be back for that spinach salad.

Wonderful sandwich at a very reasonable price. I had the BLT Wheat Wrap with a spicy ranch sauce and it was delicious. The others enjoyed their sandwiches as well. Would recommend for a lunch spot. Their Breakfast Paninis looked very interesting.

Stop here for a good cup of coffee and a sandwich. The staff will make you a tasty pannini or other sandwich custom. They are located in an old bank building with the vault open for all to visit

I had a decent espresso and ginger molasses doughnut before a boat excursion on the Monhegan Boat Line. My only complaint is that they don't have bathrooms.
