LocalYokel brings you the goods from someone who should know, since you’re in their backyard. This one’s from our plainspoken Senior Ayuh Correspondent, midcoast born and raised.
Billy’s Tavern [1 Starr St., Thomaston] Giant jenga. Fresh seafood. Largest selection of single malt and irish whiskey in Maine.
Thomaston Cafe [154 Main St., Thomaston] Fresh, natural and local food, dictates the menu. Early morning breakfast and brunch. They make great ‘to go’ lunch boxes.
Rock City Coffee [254 Main St., Rockland] Kinda eat? Drink coffee at least. Smells awesome. Sells fresh roasted beans as well.
Granite Inn [546 Main St., Rockland] Pet friendly, eco friendly.
The Inn at Camden Place [14 Tannery Lane, Camden] On the canal in downtown Camden. Historical — it used to be a shirt factory.
Samoset Inn [220 Warrenton St., Rockport] Not small, but if you want a resort this is it. Private cottages, golf course(s?), and multiple pools, one with a swim up bar.
Rockland Farmers Market [Harbor Park, Rockland] Seasonal market, kinda goes in the ‘eat’ section as well. And they have pickled fiddleheads!
Maine State Prison Showroom [358 Main St., Thomaston] Cheep cheep convict-made products. The former grounds of the prison are now a cool park out back to walk around in.
Maine Wine Trail [vineyards of midcoast Maine; yes there’s more than one] Well, firstly, it exists. And only in Maine do they have a ‘drive yourself’ wine and hard alcohol trail.
