This place is soooo gooood! You feel like at home, the only difference is that you cannot make such good French toast at home!!! A must to go.

We have loved Congdon's for years. First for their doughnuts, and then also for their great breakfast. We stop in every year (sometimes more than once) on the way up to Bar Harbor. My husband loves the Blueberry Fritters, and their gluten-sensitive doughnuts are also amazing. They also have really great customer service. Pro tip: at the end of your... More

Just came in with friends for breakfast- among the items I ordered was a side of bacon 'extra crispy please'. Bacon came only half cooked- the waitress never once came by to see how things were or I would have sent it back to be cooked more. Once we were done she brought the check and asked if I wanted...

A full parking lot is always a good sign at a new restaurant. First time here and loved it. Lobster Benedict satisfied my foodie wife and I loved the Irish Benedict with homemade hash. Wish I'd had room to try the blueberry pancakes, which looked great. Service was prompt and very friendly even with a full house. Hot coffee! Clean.

Congdon's has been a staple in Wells, ME for years...and there's no doubt why. They provide great food; great portions; great service & reasonable prices. Congdon's parking lot is always packed; yet patrons will continue to circle--waiting for a space--despite the MULTIPLE breakfast/brunch restaurant options in the area. Simply put, Congdon's does it right.

I have only ever had the donuts from this place because they are made in house and are the best ever!!! If you want warm donuts, you need to get there early because they run out of popular varieties fast!! Decided to eat breakfast here, and it was so good!!! This is a must try for breakfast and grab some... More
