We've been going to Congdon's for 30 years and love the family atmosphere. They always greet us with a smile and a warm welcome. The donuts are fantastic and
we've ordered their giant whoopie pie for parties. We've had many breakfasts there, and service is always exceptional. They're a family owned business and they really know how to treat their customers. Try their donuts, you'll be hooked!

Congdon's served family fare at fair prices. You take your chances, though, with your server. My husband and I went on a day where there were only a handful of customers with 2 servers in the dining room. Our server was not present after she served our lunch, in fact we had to flag down the other server for ketchup and a drink refill:(

I've brought your concerns to our wait staff and chatted about how important it is too check on the guests needs frequently but not so to be intrusive...usually you can tell by just walking by if a guest has a need or concern but in your case she wasn't attentive at all...thanks for your comments as we continually crtique our operations and staff

My husband will drive hours to get donuts here, as well as fresh baked bread at the bakery. This is not my type of place for baked goods, but if you are a donut afficianado, it is a must stop! The diner has surprisingly good breakfast ( excellent lobster benedict) and good also for a quick sandwich. Has been on our list for over 15 years. Don't forget to sign up for their joke emails and their frequent buyer card-- even got a discount once for husband showing his balding head.

We highly recommend the "Congdon special". It comes with eggs, homefries, toast and the best part any donut from their shop. YUM! If you visit in the summer it is still worth the wait. For no lines come to Wells in the off season. Same great food without the wait.
