Frequently Asked Questions:


  • What is your cafe doing in response to COVID-19?

Due to COVID 19, we have temporarily closed the inside of our cafe to guests and are operating solely through online ordering & contactless pickup.  To order, click this link, and we'll have your order waiting for you upon arrival.  You can also download the Toast Takeout App on your smartphone or tablet.  We have also setup a menu board in the window with our free WIFI information so you can place an order on the spot.  We are always here to help so if you are having issues or have any questions, feel free to give us a call at 207.606.0744.  Most issues can be solved by refreshing your page or simply double checking to make sure you've entered all the required information.


Staff is required to wear masks and have completed a COVID-19 Readiness Course provided by Hospitality Maine prior to our reopening. Our previous high cleanliness and sanitation standards have set up us with a great basis for operation and we've added sanitation stations and hand washing reminders throughout the cafe.
