Road trip west of Portland, ME. Any suggestions?

This might be a stretch since most of the posts comment on coastal Maine, but we're arriving in Portland, then driving northwest thru Cumberland and south Oxford counties to White Mountains of NH. Any suggestions along the way? (promised to pick up my cousin in Hiram, but haven't mapped our route yet) Any way, if there are any good places to stop, we'd be sorry to hear that we missed, let me know. Just looking for tasty, good food.

  1. I haven't eaten there myself, but have heard that this place is excellent.

    1. Krista's Restaurant on Rte. 25 in Cornish Village is very good for simple, well prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner ( They have nice outdoor seating above a waterfall and very good house made baked goods. I also love the Rte. 160 Ice Cream/hot dog stand just outside Kezar Falls.

      1. Oxford House Inn - Fryeburg. They have a nice, formal dining room and also Jonathan's that is less formal.

          1. Not really a destination spot (and probably a bit south of where you will be), but if you like quirky places to eat, there is a place in Sebago (across from the lake) called Adison's that is within a campsite, of all things. It is tiny and looks like more of a private place for campers to get food, but it is a full-service restaurant with home-cooked meals. Very cheap prices, too.

            Another option is Cole Farms in Gray:
