The Olde Post Office Cafe is - for now - a hidden gem. Wherever you're coming from, it's worth the drive for the menu, community, and charming locale. Cheers!
Okay, I'm an email/internet junky. I get the shakes if I'm denied internet access. The idea of vacationing in a remote area i.e. a small village in the woods of Maine made me nervous. My companion assuaged my fear with the fact that I'd have wifi available at the local cafe. So here I am in, the utterly charming village of Mount Vernon, Maine clacking away on my iPad, day 4 of a lake-side(pond as they call it here) vacation, just having finished breakfast. So it was the wifi that got me in the door, but it's the food I have to rave about and that will keep me coming back. This is a world class restaurant. My traveling partner is a certified foodie. She concurs. Bob the owner/chef, a retired journalist from Boston, has created a sophisticated and wholesome menu that belies the backwoods setting. For someone like me, on a pretty severe diet, the choices are terrific. Even the oatmeal is the best I've ever eaten. Just this morning, I've heard other customers say the same, "best I've ever eaten" about the veggy hummus wrap, a BLT and a Cobb salad. Seriously, this "best I've ever eaten" all happened in the 15 minutes or so, I've been writing this review. The raves go and on... For my foodie friend, the choices are fantastic. If you are anywhere near this area, put this on your itinerary as a culinary destination.
Great, great breakfast spot. Lively clientele on a long weekend morning. Try to get a table at the back which overlooks the lake. Husband liked the breakfast burritos and the kids inhaled the cinnamon rolls. Stuffed French Toast was yummy, if a little too sweet. A real oasis! Everything we had seemed homemade. Can't wait to try the pies! And lunch!
