Midcoast Pocket Guide

We’re excited to announce a new Midcoast Pocket Guide. The guide highlights a cross section of the restaurants, bakeries, breweries, coffee shops, cocktail bars, and cafes that make eating and drinking in the Midcoast so compelling.

32 cities and towns are represented from smaller communities like Bristol, Searsport and Owls Head along with the bigger cities and towns along the coast and some inland locations like Brooks, Union, and Whitefield. The list features both longtime mainstays of the Midcoast food scene and newer spots that have launched in the last couple years. We hope that no matter where you live or are traveling to in the Midcoast that this guide has something to offer.

Please keep your recommendations on where to eat, drink and shop in the Midcoast coming our way. We’d really appreciate your suggestions for additions for next edition of the guide, and your thoughts will help inform the ongoing Food Map road-trip reports.

Many thanks to the Pocket Guide sponsors! Their support plays an essential role in making this resource available: Evergreen Credit Union, the Maine Office of Tourism, Allagash Brewing, and Great Pine Financial Services. Visit their websites to learn more about their businesses.

You can pick-up a free copy of the guide at these Midcoast locations: Vessel & Vine in Brunswick, Treats in Wiscasset, The Alna Store in Alna, Fernald’s Country Store in Damariscotta, Ida’s in Waldoboro, Honey’s in Thomaston, First Fig in Camden and Dot’s Market in Lincolnville. In Portland, you can find a copy at Allagash Brewing and the Portland Trading Company.

Do you need more copies of the pocket guide for a wedding or other event, for your hotel or inn, for a business function or to share with family or other visitors? Then visit our online store where you can purchase the Midcoast and Portland pocket guides in packets of 25.

One final thought: The pocket guide wouldn’t be as good as it, in fact it wouldn’t exist at all, without the skills and contributions of graphic designer Sofija Razgaitis and of Dawn Hagin from Rare Bird Strategic. Congratulate them on their work the next time you see them. Also, many thanks to the Portland Food Map readers who have encouraged and provided advice on the growth of PFM to become more of a statewide resource.
