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.  It’s been an ongoing pleasure to explore near and nearby!

Exploring Bath, Maine Restaurants:

Update: We have a new restaurant within walking distance of the inn! Linden + Front (https://www.lindenandfront.com/). They have a wonderfully unique menu that is current, local, and delicious! Try the trout or the roasted chicken. You won’t be disappointed!

It’s warming up, so an evening on the waterfront deck at Kennebec Tavern Restaurant & Marina, http://www.kennebectavern.com/menu, will soon be available. This is a lovely way to spend a bit of time in Bath, Maine, before or after one of the concerts in the park!

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! 

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! 

There are two warm and delicious cafes in Bath, Maine.  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! 

Just a short drive over the bridge into Wiscasset will get you to Back River Bistro, a small but elegant restaurant owned by Matt & Corrinna Stum. They showcase local ingredients through creative and familiar dishes. Corrinna is always happy to make wine pairing suggestions from their currated list. Definately make a reservation here!

Heading south out of Bath, Maine, you’ll get to Brunswick. The downtown area has an eclectic selection of restaurants, from Enoteca Athena, a Greek – Italian fusion that I enjoy, to a couple of great Indian restaurants. Be sure to check out their menus and call for reservations.
