Meeresfrüchte-Restaurant

“One of our favorite spots to go. Oysters obviously, but don't be afraid to venture on to other things on the menu. Usually a wait, so don't show up hungry. They will usually let you put in your name then you can walk around the area and grab a drink or quick snack at a different spot in the area.”

“Famous bagels! The toast bar is on Broadway, where you can get yours toasted and all dressed up, but the real original bakery is the real treasure. Grab bagels and coffee and head to one of the lighthouses to enjoy them with an unmatched view.”

Frühstückscafé

“The secret it out on this place, so expect a line... Great brunch spot, it's the go to southern creole place in town. Worth the wait, but maybe on a sunny day when you can sit and people watch outside with a coffee.”

“Amazing fries, ridiculously good milkshakes. Try the poutine! (Local tip: Duckfat has a "Frites Shack" at Oxbow Brewing - so if the line is too long at Duckfat, you can pop down the street and get a beer AND fries!)”

“This place is a must visit (although, the secret has gotten out and expect a line on weekends especially). A converted gas station, Tandem has incredible baked goods and strong coffee. No wifi here- it 's designed to be more of a social place than a place to work. ”

“Great location and generous lobster rolls, right on a pier in the Old Port. Highly recommend on sunny days with the outdoor seating. They often have a band playing on the patio on the weekends. ”

Bar

“Local is a great spot in my neighborhood, but I would only recommend the breakfast there (or drinks in the evening -- the dinner offerings have never impressed me). Breakfast/brunch is popular here so expect a bit of a wait if you go after 10 on a weekend.”

“Peaks Island is a fun day trip. Only 20 minute ferry ride from Portland, you can walk around the island, go to the small sandy beach not far from the ferry landing or rent bikes for the afternoon. ”

Thailändisches Restaurant

“Another great neighborhood spot, higher end authentic thai food. Cocktails are great, I recommend ordering a bunch of things to share (chicken wings, quail eggs, and brussell sprouts are some favorites, and the grilled rice ball is also really great).”

“For great photo ops and sea breezes, consider a ferry ride over to Peaks Island. Boats run hourly (roughly), and the crossing to Peaks only takes about 20 minutes. You can rent bikes (or golf carts) to explore the island, or treat yourself to an ice cream cone at Down Front (2-minute walk from the ferry landing) and make a quick turnaround back to town. If you want to spend more time on the water, check out the Mail Boat Run! https://www.cascobaylines.com/maine-boat-tours/specialty-cruises/mailboat/ ”
