Maine’s Very First Diner Has Literally Been Around Forever

We could write novels about the food in Maine. From seafood to BBQ to sweet treats and sandwiches, if you’re hungry you better hope you’re in Maine! While the spring always has us excited for the upcoming onslaught of fresh seafood, we can’t help but get back to our roots a bit when we think about this diner. It’s got tons of history and it serves up some great food!
