Personally, I really come here for the pies, although the coffee is good, but with fewer coffee blend options than at the Rock City roasters just down the street. Sandwiches are good although the BLT is often an adventure, sometimes a classic, and occasionally with...More

Whenever I’m in Maine I try to make this my first stop even though the coffee isn’t all that. I’ve tried various blends, but to no avail. I’m not a coffee connoisseur or snob but I know what I like. The pastries, sandwiches, and other...More

My go-to place for espresso and lattes. 3 different types of espresso roast. Try the various blends and take some coffee home. The pastries/deserts are quite good.

Great coffee and atmosphere! Coffee roasted on site, good food and a used bookstore on site, I typically will spend hours here.

A small-town hub for food, drinks and live local music on weekends. A good place to get the feel of the community. All ages feel comfortable...if you're casual.
