We were wondering on this fine Friday... We know we have ours, but what's your favorite little out of the way, hole-in-the-wall spot for tasty grub?
JStew: Oh boy..... even though I've lived here in the Bangor area for the last 8 years, I feel like I still find new places all the time. One favorite of mine and KStew is down in Brooks at Ralph's Cafe. All sorts of homemade breads and pastries... Love it there. I'm also a huge fan of Dabesta Pizza in Bangor on Thatcher Road by Beal University. And when I travel to Portland, It's Marcy's Diner all the way... Honestly, going out to eat is one of my favorite things in the world, and have suffered during the pandemic. But we get takeout often, and don't use gift cards, so we're still trying to do our part to keep Maine owned restaurants going. But man, I can't wait to sit indoors again someday, and have someone keep bringing me food til I keel over and pass out!
Cori: I love so many that it would be hard to choose just one. I was a big fan of Nicky's before that closed. I love Ralph's, Sylvia's in Ellsworth, Governor's, The Appalachian Trail Cafe, The Eagles Nest, The Coach House...there are so many! And now I'm hungry!
You all had some awesome spots you love to go. There were even a couple we hadn't really heard about, and can't wait to try. Let's check out the list....
Cheryl McManus Itty Bitty Diner in Hancock. Food there is REALLY good!
