I adore this sandwich shop. It is a must have when we come to town. Great sandwich and panini selections including gluten free bread. The John Henry may be my favorite but I make no promises!

I have never had a bad experience here. There is a great selection of sandwiches, wraps, salads and soups. Every thing is made fresh--no grab and go here. They offer daily specials and always have some fresh baked cookies on the counter to temp you.

If you're looking for a good lunch in Rockland, try Clan MacLaren's. There are many choices of sandwiches and paninis. The soups and bisques are extraordinarily good. If you are lucky, you will be there on a day they offer Maine Chili. Don't miss it. The maple syrup they add to the chili sounds like an odd idea, but trust... More

This is the best lobster bisque I've had in years! The soup base was delicious and there was lots of tasty lobster morsels floating around. Very friendly service. We chose to eat outside on this beautiful autumn afternoon but there is plenty of seating inside. They had a great lunch menu as well. A wonderful place to have a light... More

Great spot for a break from the galleries and boutiques. MacLaren's menu offers a variety of soups, salads, and sandwiches made with fresh local produce. My daughter had a grilled cheese and BLT on fresh baked local bread. My lobster cesar salad was crisp and lightly dressed to perfection then tossed with generous chunks of lobster. After placing our order... More

We ordered sandwiches, salads and a panini for take out last Friday. We were all very happy with our food, which was delicious. However, we had to wait a long time for it to be prepared.
