Hidden Gem in Wells Maine
Merriland Farms in Wells is the BEST place for breakfast in southern Maine IMO. We''ve had breakfast there several times in the last month. You can sit outside on patio, overlooking golf course. For being fairly close to Rt 1 the setting is very "country". My favorite is their buttermilk pancakes with fresh raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries. My daughter had a special -- french toast stuffed with fresh peaches and almonds and topped with fresh raspberries and cream. One of their versions of eggs benedict is made with asparagus and roasted shrimp - outstanding. Oh, and try sides of thin sliced russet potatoes or sweet potatoes -- taste like heavenly homemade potato chips. Setting is beautiful and food is terrific. Worth going out of your way for. And if it rains, you can dine inside with rustic, homey setting, including a working fireplace. This place really is a gem. Think it's also open for lunch during the week, and for dinner just Fri and Sat nights. But they really shine at breakfast! Located on Coles Rd off Rt 1, turnoff is on left just before Maine Diner if you're headed north on Rt 1.
