This is what a coffee shop should be. Well crafted drinks that are swift, but not rushed. Plenty of seating for locals to chat, read, and caffeinate for the day. Because they offer soups it can get crowded at the lunch hour!

I'm usually skeptical when visiting restaurants right along the main drag of a rather touristy street. Thus is the location of Portland Lobster Co., smack in the middle of Commercial Street in downtown Portland. However, my skepticism was brushed...

Local is the operative word in the Portland, Maine food scene. Ask a waiter what Atlantic Day-Boat halibut is exactly, and he'll spin a story about the local captain who pulls in with the day's catch. At the height of summer, it seems that every...

280 Belfast Rd, Camden, ME 04843, USA
Most people who go to Camden Hills drive right up Mount Battie, which is a nice drive with a great view of the harbor. But the park has so much else to explore. The Ocean View Trail is a particularly excellent choice. It is fairly strenuous, but...
