I had a quick lunch here with my parents that had read about the placeís reviews on other sites. I sat at the bar and waited for my parents to arrive. Service was immediate and friendly. The place was packed for lunch and the bar was a bit crowded. My parents arrived and we were sat outside. The menu was small but they did have specials to accompany it. I had a Brussels sprout salad that was lightly drizzled with a champagne vinaigrette. My parents each chose a panini. The food was wonderful and a solid lunch. We drank local rising tide bottled beer. The bill was a but high for the portion size, but the experience was worth another visit.

Great charcuterie-cafe with a few alfresco tables. As others have said, be prepared to wait, but it is indeed worth it. Limited menu of simple foods that are truly magnificent. Yes, the Belgian fries really are that good. We each tried a different sandwich, all weíre amazing. Have the donuts for desert-- delicious! Only a few taps, but super quality choices of rare regionals. Treated our kids with respect nd attentiveness-- the homemade sodas are outstanding. Go here is you love food and donít mind a limited but quality beer selection.

Stopped here over the weekend for lunch. We had heard about the fries, and werenít disappointed. Other than Monkís in Philly, these are the best Belgian fries Iíve had. The rest of the menu was really decent. As the waiter said, they sell gourmet junk food. I had a pork belly pannini, which was made with some phenomenal bacon. The other items look equally good. Three beers on tap, and quite a few cans. Pretty much all were Maine craft beers. It is a very small place, so you may have to wait. It is worth it!

To sum up in short: beyond incredible food, fresh, but few (6 total beers offered draft OR packaged) local beer selections (of which there are substantial offerings), and a bit cramped to really have a decent time. Go for the food alone though, the beer is a bonus.

Popped in here to try the blegian fries fried in duckfat...they were pretty amazing with about 5 dipping sauces to choose from. Cool little menu had nice local stuff focusing on soups, sandwiches, salads. 3 taps of local Maine beers and about half of the bottles/cans are decent craft. Service was friendly and knowledgeable of local beer and tourism. Tiny place but a must stop for a local craft and tbe fries!
