Variety and quality of doughnuts, and food in general, were outstanding. The service was fast, the food wonderful, and the prices very reasonable for what was served.

Very few options of donuts available at noon .Our vegetables were cold, pot roast burnt and dry, cranberry sauce never given for turkey dinner. Felt like we spent a lot of money and had poor service and food.

I cannot begin to describe how fantastic the donuts are. They're the right consistency - not too dry or dense. They are fabulous. Looking forward to our next trip to get me more goodies.

Great breakfast - my pumpkin pancakes were great to top off the Hearty Breakfast and my wife enjoyed the Sunshine Benedict. We go here every time we are near Wells or passing by Wells and can stop for Breakfast. And, then there are the donuts, such a great selection and they are all good. And they also have great bread...

Huge selection. All types of donuts; light cake, jelly, frosted, jimmies, etc. Incredible specialty donuts. Great coffee. Breakfast sandwiches to go. Plus, the best sitdown breakfast in Maine. Worth the drive. Go before you get too hungry!

Great breakfast- omelettes were fluffy and out of this world! Donuts were as light as feathers- kudos to the wild Maine blueberry one and baker! It's where hometown meets tourists! The Congdon Family runs a fine institution!

Breakfast is called the most important meal and this is the place to have it. Home cooked breakfasts, lots of selections, If you can't find something, there's always homemade doughnuts. Doughnuts are so fresh as meals are delicious. Staff is always smiling and remembering returning customers. Yes, it's worth the wait for a full belly.
