Having just moved to Bath, Maine. As your innkeeper, I have been considering it my delicious duty to try out restaurants and cafes in town.  When my family came to visit for the holidays, we took the task to heart.  It has been quite enjoyable, and I’m happy to say, diverse!

Exploring Bath, Maine Restaurants:

I started with Kennebec Tavern Restaurant and Marina knowing they’d have plenty of seafood, but they also had other tasty options.  I loved the spinach and goat cheese soup, which was a special on that day.  Their burgers and fries were large and delicious.  The service, and other diners, were very pleasant, and the view can’t be beat! 

With my family, we had some great pizza from Burano’s Wood Fired Pizzaria on more than one chilly evening.  They had a great variety of toppings, even a vegan cheese option for one of my family members.  Thank you for that, Burano’s!

Solo Pane e Pasticceria

At JR Maxwell’s & Co. I enjoyed, on my own one evening, a perfect Chicken Picatta and a glass of Pinot Grigio.  Maxwell’s is a larger, but cozy restaurant that also has a pub, which I haven’t checked out yet… more on that later! 

If you are looking for some Irish fare, there is Bryne’s Irish Pub.  It’s very lively and has a wonderful atmosphere, along with good food.  They have open musicians night on Wednesday, and trivia on Thursday.  Truly a fun and welcoming neighborhood place. 

As I hail from Southern California, I had to check out Bath Brewing Co., you know, just to compare.   I was pleasantly surprised to see that in addition to their selection of local brews, they have a very nice food menu and fun cocktails.  Try one of the loaded fry bowls or a giant pretzel to start! 

The Fountain Ice Cream & Deli

There are two warm and delicious cafes in town.  Cafe Creme is a bustling coffee house with a large assortment of warm drinks and fresh baked goods.  The ginger molasses cookie is huge, soft, and my new favorite! They also offer a selection of vegan and gluten free pastries. The other place to stop is Solo Pane e Pasticceria, an Italian bakery.  Here you will find cornetti in several decadent options.  My favorite is the jam-filled.  If you are unfamiliar with cornetti, think croissant, but with an Italian twist to it.  This is also where I try to get some of my breads for the inn.  When my family and I went there, my son claimed it smelled “too good” and he had to wait outside or he’d order even more! 

Lunch time Bath, Maine Restaurants are available, too.  Mae’s Cafe & Bakery offers salads, sandwiches, and tasty breakfast options.  They have the most delicious marble rye for sandwiches!  There’s also The Fountain Ice Cream and Deli.  I enjoyed a great quiche, which is a staple on the menu, and treated myself to a scoop of ice cream.  

I have recently found a few other gems around town that I will be checking out.  To sum it up, there is no shortage of delicious food in our sweet town of Bath.
