Honest review. Two of us for breakfast. Menu stated an omelet with their "homemade" hash but was told they had none, instead they substituted nasty canned hash. Why include homemade hash on your menu if you have none available? This is also the only breakfast restaurant we've EVER visited that does not have some sort of veggie omelet on their... More

Don't let the name fool you into thinking they are just Doughnuts! Congdons is one of a few places to get a hearty breakfast along the touristy Route 1 Stretch of Southern Maine. It may be slightly more pricey ( or maybe not ) than you are used to however the food and portion sizes will certainly delight! It is... More

We stopped at Congdon's yesterday while in Maine. Food was great as usual. We were the last ones in the restaurant but treated as if we were the first. Only disappointment is that none of our favorite doughnuts were left so we will have to go back earlier in the day the next time.

We got a table quickly and ordered a doughnut, pancakes and a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich. The pancakes were huge! You can split one order with two people. They had an oreo doughnut on special which my daughter loved and my husband enjoyed his sandwich. The service was friendly and fast. We wish we took some doughnuts home from... More
