The Cafe is rather inconspicuous, nestled in between the bows and arrows and the side entrance of L.L.Bean. The food, despite the somewhat limited selection is healthy and tasty and fresh. The Cafe offers only limited space but this gives it a rather cozy non-commercial feeling.

We stopped here for lunch after shopping at LL Bean. Great menu selection, generous portions (my husband and I split a wrap), crunchy pickles and huge cookies. Very reasonable. Loved it!

We went to LL Bean and found this little cafe on our way out of the main building. What a nice surprise! We split a wrap that was big enough for two!! Delicious, with fresh ingredients, a crisp pickle on the side and a huge cookie! Very reasonably priced and the service was quick. Don't pass by this cafe!

We were shopping at LL Bean and we needed something to eat since our favorite place had burned down last year. We looked at the menu and were trying to figure out if there were some good vegetarian options and we asked a lady that was cleaning off the counter top: she immediately said two sandwiches which sounded good to...

How did I miss this cafe before? It's tucked into the hallway by the hunting fishing gear. Best kept secret at Bean. Get a wrap and share it. It's huge!! Best homemade pickles ever! Molasses cookies like Grandmommie made!! Yum!

While walking through the LLBean store, we looked at the menu and decided to give the 1912 Café a try. The sandwiches were delicious. The place was a little pricey but well worth every penny.

Went here for a quick bite before taking the last bus trip back to Portland . It's black friday after 6pm. The service was fast. I thinks they are overpriced or I was over charged. I ordered 2 crab and corn chowder soup (medium) and 2 apple cider drinks. After paying, the cashier( older lady between the two) tore my... More

Stopped in for a bagel and coffee before shopping and decided to try the 'Matinicus' (smoked ham, brie cheese, egg and jam). It was so good!! I was thinking that jam would be served on the side, but it really went well on this bagel. The staff was super, and the cafe spotless. I'll definitely eat here again.

Nice place to get lunch while shopping. Good variety for a small place, and the outside seating is a bonus in good weather. A little expensive, but the food is good quality.
