I may not be an early riser but I am still a sucker for a good breakfast. I personally enjoy savory options like breakfast sandwiches, bacon, and home fries but I won’t turn down a fresh cinnamon bun. Heck, I wouldn’t turn down a six-day-old cinnamon bun.
Breakfast Spots in Maine
Luckily for all of us, Maine is known for its killer cuisine. We have top-rated and famous restaurants scattered across our state from Kittery to Presque Isle. While I mostly tell you all about what’s happening in the city of Portland, I thought I’d branch out a bit and learn about what places are slinging the best breakfast in all of Maine.
I came to you guys for help, though. We asked the Maine community where their all-time favorite spot is to get breakfast and the answers flooded in. Turns out, Mainers hold strong opinions on where they get their first meal of the day.
What’s cool about most of these places is that they have been around for decades. I’m talking since like, 1927. If a restaurant is standing tall for 70+ years, then you know they are doing something right.
Some spots stick to the classics with the All-American platters with the works and French toast options but others dare to be different and use our local and fresh ingredients to build a unique menu you won’t find elsewhere.
Scroll through and feel your belly rumble as you look at the pictures. Have you been to any of these places? Did your favorite make the list? Do you now have a new place to go try?
