This is a busy place with experienced people giving consistent quality. Have gone many times with friends and family. Only gripe was I wanted a different variety of donuts. Lets see strawberry filled and powdered!

This place was around the corner from our hotel, so we decided to eat here. The wait was about 15 minutes and then we were ushered to our table. Our waitress was friendly and outgoing. We ordered an omelette and an egg plate along with a strawberry pancake. The bread, baked beans and home fries were a delicious accompaniment to... More

Stopped on the way from a business trip. Clean, quaint environment. Nice range of menu options. I got the 2 by 4 - eggs over easy were perfect, 2 strips of bacon cooked well but not burned, two lovely fluffy pancakes cooked to order. The food was served on a plate that had been heated! Awesome to have every bite... More

When your away from home and in Maine forget about the diet and splurge on some fantastic baked goods at Congdon's Donuts. The donuts are light and tasty and the whoopi pies come in a couple sizes (eat the small one there and take the large one home). Great bakery with a country restaurant atmosphere serving delicious filling breakfasts. They... More

So, on our way back south, we stopped in for a baker's dozen. They were fantastic. So fresh, so light and delicious. Every flavor... More
