Eating in Ellsworth, Me.

Riverside Cafe
Ellsworth is the closest town to where we stay. Breakfast at the Riverside Cafe has become something of a tradition for my family, during the time we vacation in the area. The kids love their pancakes with chocolate chips. The short stack is plenty for our biggest young eater. I usually get sunnyside eggs with home fries and bacon or a sausage patty. The homefries are terrific, nice and crisp and perfectly creamy on the inside. Toasted homemade bread is SO good, along side. My sister is a fan of the omelets, really a big meal. Poached eggs with Hollandaise, are my son-in-law's annual choice. It's a great place to hangout for locals and tourists. I've never been disappointed by the food, service or atmosphere. They serve lunch too, and the menu looks really good, including "old-fashioned" milk shakes. Brunch on Sunday.

The Maine Grind http://www.mainegrind.com/menu.htm
For a quick coffee and a good muffin on the go, The Maine Grind is a fine spot, just up the street from Riverside, on the left. You can eat in, for breakfast or lunch, though I never have. I do love their coffee. It's a comfortable place to just sit!

The Mex http://www.themexrestaurant.com/
After a long day at Acadia National Park, we wanted something different besides seafood (I can't believer I said that!) Anyway,we knew we had leftover lobsters in the fridge back at camp. If you have little acquaintance with Mexican food, it might suit you fine. I've been spoiled in my part of NY State.
