"A Family Tradition Since 1927"
Nestled among the pines and ponds of Waldoboro, Maine. Narrow and long, like dining in a Kleenex box.
Cinnamon rolls dripping with warm frosting. Tiered café curtains. Founders Bertha and Percy immortalized on the menu: eight pages of all-day breakfasts and haddock sandwiches, pumpkin whoopie pies, meatloaf. Green pleather edges to match the counter stools.

Molasses donuts for the road in a wax paper bag.
The train chugs past, a whistle echoing in the woods.
