Candy’s (website, instagram) opened for business on Thursday. They’re located at 34 Portland Street adjacent to the Maine Oyster Company. Candy’s is hybrid of a coffee shop by day, a cafe/cocktail bar at night and a “queer community hub” all the time.
grab a coffee and hang in the queer library in the morning. shoot some pool. teach a workshop. attend a workshop. come to a show. host a show. listen to our podcast. bring the fam, whatever that may mean to you. drink a drink. eat some snacks. talk to pals. be kind to one another.
Candy’s is sourcing their coffee beans from Onyx Coffee Lab, a roaster from Arkansas prepared by barista Milo Degoosh. If you stop later in the day when the bar is open I can recommend the Mainer’s Sazerac.
