This small vendor inside the Gorham $ Norton package store is a great place for a tasty treat to tide you over during the day. Though the selection is limited you are sure to find what is sure to become a favorite indulgence. I like the scones myself and do buy their bread from time to time. Though not sold by this vendor, there are drinks and other goods in the same store so go on in and give them a shot!
I love Guido's for their specialty foods but stay away from their plant/floral offerings. I find nothing special here except the pricing which is consistently higher than similar offerings from Big Y and Price Chopper. Maybe if they tried harder but space is limited so I don't see this situation changing anytime soon.
Price Chopper is a convenient place to shop for plants and floral display. As I do my grocery shopping here, it allows me to scan through their display and pick up stuff on the cheap I have 5 African violet plants that I bought for $0.99 each that have grown beautifully. I transfered them to some ceramic pots I had left from deceased plants. Keep your eye open for roses to be on sale as well. I have had them last for over 2 weeks before. No, this isn't like buying from a florist but a smart shopper can do OK for themselves here.
Martin's is a decent place that tends to drive me crazy with the smell of their bacon cooking drifting down Railroad St. Prices are typical for in-town dining and the menu always has specials available. I usually get one of their omelets but it can be hit or miss with the quality of the fillings. I tend to go for the eggs 'over-easy' now as they are harder to mess up. Service is good but sometimes it would seem they are under-staffed.
I like Teo's and their hot dog sauce is a recipe that I have tried to duplicate but can never quite match. They have fallen out of favor with me over their pricing as 6 dogs and a beverage can cost over $8! Not exactly what I call an average lunch.Perhaps some creative pricing on set meals (like a value meal at McDonald's) would sway me back in their direction.
This place has been one of my favorite restaurants for years. Their Crabfest is well known and the Sunday brunch is to die for. Prices are very reasonable and the service is exemplary. I once filled out a comment card and had a manager call my home more than once until he got to speak to me in person about my suggestion. This was implemented by them and I was offered half price on my next visit!
Seeing as this establishment is in the heart of town it is hard to miss the aroma of the food coming from it's kitchen. More bar than eatery, I feel the prices are high for this kind of place. The food arrived late and was just OK. There is usually some form of entertainment later in the evening when the space is setup to be more of a bar.
I consider this a 'must visit' restaurant in the area for tourists and new homeowners. Pricing is at the higher end of the scale but the service and preparation justify the cost. If you are unsure of what to order your server will definitely point you toward the best of the kitchen for that night. A simple glance is all it takes to get someones attention when you require more assistance. Just a classic New England Inn!
The local micro-brewery actually offers good food at a more than fair price in a very homey atmosphere. We visited after a day skiing, we were seated promptly and had our drinks in short order. I recommend trying the beer sampler as it lets you find a favorite then you can cozy up with that variety for the rest of your stay. We both ordered New York strip steak as our entree and both arrived done as requested. My date had desert and it was fantastic.
Bogie's offers your standard bar fare and has the atmosphere to go with it. I wish the eating area was further separated from the bar area as we ate a late supper and had to listen to the patrons tipping them back at the bar. I got a grilled sandwich, it was well made and filled me up. My date thought that her order was just 'OK' and only ate less than half of her sandwich. She said it wasn't what she had imagined from reading the menu.
