The Shamrock Cafe is a small quaint restaurant in Houlton Maine. I at an Italian sandwich there, I believe it was called "The Portland". The sandwich was large and filled generously with both meats and veggies. The bread was good but a bit dense. I also found it to be a bit on the pricey side, but overall I would rate it as very good. It's worth a try if you're in the Houlton, Maine area

I found the use of green in this place enchanting. They have green napkins, green cups, green chairs, green thumb tacks, Irish quotes everywhere - I mean they know how 2 stick 2 a theme. I found the food underwhelming & they were sold out of stuff - like the bread I wanted my sandwich on. And we were the only people in the restaurant & the waitress took like 10min to come to our table.

Food was amazing, pick your own items they make your sub. I had a sub and my wife had a soup sandwich, all home made bread and fresh ingredients. WIll definately be returning.

We had lunch here on June 27 2016. My husband had a build your own sub and I had the chicken Texas panini. Very delicious! My husband loved his sandwich and said it was one of the best he's had. Very good prices. The place is very clean. Don't pass this by!
