As all us old timer Mainers know, we can't guarantee "Maine the way life used to be" unless your at or north of State Route 2, Jen's is one of the few exceptions. If one of the reasons your visiting Maine is to take yourself back to standards of a generation ago, then you can't miss Jen's. Like The Big G in Winslow, Maine, Jen's is an icon of the best in authenticity. The coffee mugs are from Reny's; your chair might be a metal folding one, the table might have a built in checkerboard complete with checkers. The rule for décor is "nothing matching". You can watch Jen cooking and she might turn around and give you one of those old time "I'm going to ring your gastronomic chime" smiles. And ring it she will. She creates her magic while "Papa" manages the dishes decked out in his suspenders just the way we all remember our favorite uncle use to dress. The menu is imaginative, focused on breakfast, and no one goes home hungry. Fantastic service by friendly, no baggage locals rounds out a "slice of Maine" experience you'll treasure. Oh, and check out the patron pin map on your right as you leave and you'll feel privileged to have had the opportunity to dine at Jen's. Places like this are not around forever. Pay her a visit and you'll have checked off an item on your bucket list you didn't know was even on it.
