Cambridge Coffee Bar and Bakehouse - South Portland, ME

"Opening Soon" according to the sign, in the old Freaky Bean spot on Broadway. Anyone have information on this endeavor?

  1. I've got no details, but am THRILLED to hear this news. A friend also mentioned a yoga studio is "coming soon" in that plaza - I may never leave!

    On another note, anyone know when the expansion at JP Thornton's there is going to be ready? I've eaten there a few times and have been pleasantly surprised at the value for the money. It's not great cuisine, but it's totally solid and relatively affordable - a nice combination.

      The newly expanded Thornton's Bar and Grill has opened as of last Friday. Looks to be a pretty soft opening of the new space as part of it looks unfurnished, creating a sort of awkward impression. Upon entering, I thought just the new bar was open as the entire seating area in use was hidden behind a pretty tall half wall. In front of the bar is a large empty space that I assume is not yet furnished. I don't know. I don't really have an impression of the new space as I didn't stay to eat there. The menu has not changed and I had been hoping to see some new additions. Such a small, never-changing menu gets challenging when you go there very regularly.

      Plenty busy for a Monday night, for sure!
