Fun Food Stops from Mass. to Midcoast Maine?

carpevacationum Jul 2, 2009 05:55 AM

Heading to Maine this weekend and just came across a post mentioning Stonewall Kitchens. Thought it might be fun to stop and check it out on the way.

Wondering if there are any other "fun food" type stops along the way that we should check out?

Wine and Cheese Shops, Specialty Items, that kind of thing.

Thanks so much!

    Treat's in Wiscasset should fit your requirements perfectly. It's a cute store with wine, cheese, specialty beer and foods, sandwiches, and more. Treat's is a one-of-a-kind, not a chain.

    Heading north through the village on Rte. 1, Treat's is on a corner on the right.

      Flo's in Cape Neddick, ME (right by Stonewall) for a hotdog with relish and celery salt.

      Not "specialty" but local and specific.

        The Cheese Iron, great cheese shop in Scarborough.

        Morse's Sauerkraut, real European-style deli, in Waldoboro.

          Ditto, in excelsis, for the Cheese Iron. This is a "don't miss."

            Double ditto. We call it "Cheese Porn."

          We like Harrasskeet Lunch in So. Freeport - a great seafood shack. Also, Five Guys Lobster in Georgetown. Finally, don't miss having a custard at one of the local places in Maine. Search this board for some suggestions.

            Depending on where you are in MA-Karl's Sausage Kitchen on Rte. 1 in Saugus. Sausage and the like of course, but packaged foods too (Scandinavian as well as eastern European).
