My boyfriend and I went to Kennebunkport last Labor Day weekend and discovered a little place in York, ME that we just love. It has a very creative, very extensive breakfast menu with a very long list of specials that are ever changing that take advantage of the abundant fresh, local produce.
Yesterday morning we both woke up incredibly early for some reason and decided that rather than toss and turn for a few more hours we should jump in the car and head to Maine (we live in western, MA) for a stop at the Stolen Menu Cafe and a day at the beach.
When I go to Maine, I make an effort to incorporate lobster into each meal, and there were serveral menu options that allowed me to do this both times we've been. The first time I had a lobster and fried egg sandwich served on a croissant with local greens, tomato and truffle oil. The sandwich was overflowing with sweet, succlent lobster meat. The best breakfast I've ever had until yesterday when I got the "Fall in Love with Maine" special, which was equally as good and equally abundant on the lobster. This time, however, the lobster was served eggs benedict-style, with the lobster in place of the canadian bacon and the addition of heirloom grape tomatoes, shitake mushrooms and corn. Pure heaven.
