Food scene
A great local restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I recommend going for breakfast or brunch on Sunday- they have delicious choices for reasonable prices. Don't miss their giant shareable cinnamon buns when they're fresh from the oven.

Eat typical Maine seafood by the rocky shoreline of the ocean with views of the two local lighthouses. They also have non-seafood and vegetarian options. Get a homemade whoopie pie (the official Maine state sweet treat) or homemade blueberry pie (the official Maine state dessert). The line to order can be quite long at peak dining hours, get there early to beat the crowds. You can also BYOB.

Best bagels around. They also sell delicious breads, sandwiches, pastries, and cakes. I recommend the sea salt bagels with herbed creamed cheese from the fridge. From the dessert case, don't miss the coconut cake. This is not a dine in location. The also don't toast the bagels for you- it's grab and go and they sell out of bagels by noon usually. There are a few outdoor seats. They also have a toast bar at a separate location nearby but they don't sell their desserts there.
