Farmington/Skowhegan Maine ME Lunch

Heading from Vermont to Maine Saturday morning, will be in vicinity of
Farmington, ME, or a bit further East towards Skowhegan at lunchtime. Any good lunch spots to recommend? Diners or local gems?

  1. Farmington Diner is a possibility. Try it while you can, as it's being razed in favor of a Rite Aid (ugh!). See this article for more info: For a brew pub, try the Granary Pub and Restaurant, which has beer from Oak Pond Brewery in Skowhegan. For a more upscale experience, check out Homestead Bakery. Also, if you have the time, catch a movie at Narrow Gauge Cinemas followed by a cone at Gifford's.

    1. There is a pub w/ a rear deck overhanging the river. Riverside? Also a diner featured in a recent film w/ Ed Harris.
