Rustic and unassuming at first glance but a real gem for the palate. All of the foods and lots of the alcoholic drinks are Maine sourced. Everything is fresh and well-prepared - lots of creativity as well as simple but nicely presented dishes. Have not had breakfast here but we are told it's great also. This is an employee-owned business... More

Searched for a lunch spot that served locally grown, healthy foods without preservatives and processing. The reviews looked good so we gave it a try at. It is small and rustic. You give your order and pay at the cash when you arrive. I chose the grilled chicken sandwich that came with side of salad greens and herb vinaigrette as... More

Very granola crunchy. Stand in line to order, then they bring your food. Sausage good, veggie egg scramble tasteless. Breads pretty good. Coffee good (and only $1 for a cup). Nice seating, fairly cozy. Pancakes odd but pretty tasty. It felt like a typical Portland experience.

We liked the focus on locally sourced ingredients and vegetarian fare. And we could get in on a Sunday morning, which was impossible at other local spots. Garden veggie scramble very good, and so was the hot oatmeal with almonds, walnuts, cranberries and brown sugar. Coffee was served warm (not hot), but otherwise no complaints.

Visited this restaurant after New Years and tried the vegan pancake, vegan breakfast burrito, and vegan scramble. All were delicious and the atmosphere was pleasant. Highly recommend

Visited January 6th for First Friday Art Walk, the night when a number of the local museums are open until 9 p.m. and free of charge. Local Sprouts was also open until 9 p.m. but their website reflected that they were only open until 5. We were happy to be serenaded by musician Sarah Logan and friends. There was a... More

While passing through Portland, my wife and I were in search of the ultimate breakfast locale. It was suggested that we try Local Sprouts Co-op. What a nice surprise. This was the ideal spot for us. What a joy to have a healthy, organic, delicious, freshly prepared breakfast. The restaurant lists on its wall the names and locations of their... More

Very cute and comfortable little neighborhood hang out. Had hot tea and listened to live music. They also serve beer & wine good to know for next time.

The staff acted as if we were not there. Food was fine. But the lack of basic interactions between customer and servers was enough of a reason to not go back.

Atmosphere: Has local inspiration paired with modern social awareness. It also has an aesthetic that makes your feel like your hanging out in the owners home. Local artwork is displayed on the walls along with a map of where their food is sourced from. Food & Beverage: Best breakfast burrito I have ever had! I highly suggest it. I paired... More
