Doughnuts - Midcoast Maine to Camden to Greenville
We'll be making trip from Portland to Freeport to Camden, then inland to Greenville.
I'm looking for great local doughnuts. I know about Congdon's (spelling?), but it will be south of where we we will be. I'm not interested in Dunkin Donuts or other national chains, but would love some good local donuts. Thanks.
I've checked into Frosty's via Google search and one of first listings is a "for sale" link. Does anyone know if Frosty's is still in business.
Also, does anyone know about Boynton-McKay in Camden? A guidebook listed them as having good doughnuts....I'm looking for other opinions! Thanks.
Boynton-McKay if that is the place I am thinking of, is a small pharmacy with a "soda counter". They make just one batch of donuts and they are usually gone by 9:00 - 9:30. We stop everything we pass thru.... The best just plain old fashioned donut. Moist in the inside, crispy on the outside.
The Willow Bake Shoppe on Rt 1 on the line between Rockland and Rockport is very nice. Nothing but coffee and doughnuts available, in a variety of flavors. They aren't knock-your-socks-off, but they are a nice local, homemade doughnut shop in a great location (open Mon-Sat, 6AM-12PM, I believe). Try the molasses doughnut- excellent.
Also, I haven't had the doughnuts at Boynton-McKay, but I have to put in my plug for them as on of the best casual breakfasts around- their veggie breakfast skillet is fresh and fabulous, always a winner.
