Friends of ours told us we had to get donuts at Congdon's when we were visiting Wells, and they were right! Nobody knows how to make donuts any more. All the chains make them in "factories" and ship them to donut shops. But then we found Congdon's and realized there still is at least one place that makes donuts the... More

Family owned and operated local bakery with amazing donuts. Warm and welcoming, you can't leave with just one donut. They all look amazing....and they are. Whoopie pies are the size of hub caps. It's just a delightful, delicious, simple place. All the rave reviews are real.

It was my first time going here and had an excellent experience. Not only was the food fantastic but the staff was helpful and super friendly. There jumbo donuts are the best. If you haven't tried Congdon's out, make it a point to. I'll be going back!

We go to Congdons doughnuts often when we go up to Maine to visit our daughter and family. These are the best doughnuts we have ever had, the doughnuts are made fresh all day long and come out warm and light as a puff of a cloud, the blueberry fritter is so delicious. My husband's favorite is the honey dip.... More
