“Honey dipped”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

The honey dipped doughnut is the best for me. But along with that you can get a bowl of doughnut holes for your table. The menu has many different options, something for everyone!

“Such light donuts....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

The doughnuts were fantastic ( 2 days in a row)-- they were almost bursting with filling--- such wonderful flavors-----they were so light and airy you certainly could eat more than one, or two......
It was a great stop !!!

“Excellent Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Congdon's was just up the street from our hotel and was perfect for breakfast. We were seated and served promptly and the breakfast was just fine.

“Could not get seated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We went in n Tuesday May 27, put our name in with the hostess, waited 25 minutes and after watching 5 other couples get seated, left. Very poor system for seating customers! While waiting, I looked at the pastries and donuts in the cases. The whoopie pies looked greatbut the donuts must taste better than they looked. Disappointed!

I reached out to Tashmarie for more details but didn't get a response but once you check in with the hostess here at Congdons you receive a beeper that goes off with vibrations and a voice that tells you when your table is ready. You can be inside the restaurant or outside on the bench or even in your car and it will tell you when your table is ready. We never want a guest to miss their turn for a table.

I agree with you...everything is high priced today. With rising food costs, prices for all foods continue to go up and anyone that wants to stay in business better pay attention. We don't have special pricing for the tourists and never have. Our line-ups out the door are testament of continued satisfaction with all our guests. I price our menu with the thoughts of paying the staff a decent wage and paying all the other bills that are associated with being in business today. There are other lower priced fast food restaurants all around us. I choose to be better tasting.
