I cannot recommend a trip to Wells without breakfast here. It is the highlight of our Memorial Day weekend. Dunkin Shmunkin, these are the finest donuts anywhere. The cakes are soft, the honeydips are as light as a feather and the Jelly...OMG. Besides donuts the breakfasts are large and delicious. Every morning begins at Congdon's. Come enjoy a little bit...

The servers have amazing memories. On our first visit in a year, one server welcomed us back! During our yearly visit to Wells, we eat breakfast here every morning they are open. The food and service are good, the atmosphere is welcoming--it's all good! The blueberry fritters are delicious!

We stopped in for breakfast. The restaurant is usually crowded, but they do a pretty good job getting people through in decent time. Our server was excellent and the food is very good. We took home delicious doughnuts and bagels as well. It's a far ride for us to visit, but worth it!

My husband and I joined friends at Congdons on Sunday for breakfast at 9:30AM. Our breakfasts were delicious. The menu offered different selections like chocolate covered bacon and honey bun French toast. My husband had an omelette. He was disappointed in the texture and flavor. Our server was delightful. Even though the restaurant was crowded, she was attentive to us.... More

Hi Ginny, We're glad to hear that some of our specialty items were such a hit for you. We're disappointed to hear that your husband was not happy with his omelette.

Amazing doughnuts and a wide selection. They also have breads, whoopie pies and other desserts. The restaurant is very good. It is so popular that they are adding a separate entrance to the restaurant section. The lines are so long in the morning that people just going in to get doughnuts have a tough time getting through the crowd. If... More
