Bavarian Cream was our favorite. The Apple Fritter was huge but I would go back for the filled doughnuts. Never mind how long the line is, it goes fast! We stayed in Wells 8 days and only place we went to twice!

I am a big doughnut girl. I eat them every time I travel and love to find new shops. This is hands down the next doughnut shop I’ve been too yet. Aside from the quality and taste of their doughnuts, their staff is just as...amazing.More

I always make this an early stop our first morning in town. Muffins are big with great flavor. Great selection too for donuts as well. There can be a little wait for walk up and drive through but worth the wait. Sign up for their...birthday club.More

Great donuts, you can bring them home with you, but be careful it’s hard to stop at one. A little pricey but worth it

As usual, I get in the drive-thru lane before open to avoid lines. This time, however, it was closed and a sign invited readers to come inside. The lights were on, the door unlocked, and friendly faces greeted me. The professional staff filled my order...and also gave me a free maple bacon fritter that had broken. Taste counts, so I don't mind a "broken" fritter. I got one each (seven) of their filled donuts. Congdon's filled donuts are actually filled. You don't have to keep taking bites to arrive at a dot of filling the in the center of the donut. One bite and you're there. Remember, a dozen donuts here is a baker's dozen, 13.More

Line was out the door. Saw it as we were driving by so decided to stop. It moved quickly. I really liked the donuts that I bought and the corned beef breakfast bowl. I would definitely eat there again. They were very efficient.

My recent visit I stood in the bakery line and I purchased donuts the line moved smoothly the staff were Great. I enjoyed the experience and I’m sure others did too. If you visit Maine you have to stop at Congdons for delicious donuts and...try the Breakfast Bowl which consists of Egg Potato Bacon or Sausage and cheese.More
