Bagel Bagel

On Friday I went to Portland to check out the new Forage Market location on Washington Avenue. I got the forage bagel sandwich on a salt bagel. The location is nice and open with lots of seating. You can buy fresh flowers too. I’m excited to go back and try more of their bagels. Their cold brew was very delicious too.

Lil’s Cafe

After my hike I went to Kittery to grab some food before heading back home. I stopped at Lil’s Cafe. I got the pesto mozzarella with tomato on the olive sourdough. Very good and filling! I had wanted to try one of their donuts too. It was light with a good sugar coating. I thought it was interesting how they sell reusable straws to prevent waste and do recycling and composting when you throw out your trash. I need to remember to bring one of my reusable straws with me.

Holy Crêpe Part 2

I ended up in the mood for crêpes again and this time I went to Portland to finally get to go to Sip of Europe. They have sweet and savory crêpes along with coffee drinks. I went with the Italian fiesta with turkey which was a good lunch. Iced coffee was good too. I like a place I can just sit and relax and enjoy my meal. I’d like to come back when I’m in the mood for something sweet.


I got to spend some time with my sister just the two of us. We decided to start with checking out Cape Whoopies that just opened in South Portland. It’s partnered with Rwanda Bean Coffee so you can grab a coffee and a delicious whoopie pie or two. I have to say I’m sorta a connoisseur of whoopie pies having attended the Whoopie Pie Festival up north. I tried the strawberry chocolate whoopie pie and oh my it was so good. The cake was so moist and I liked the frosting where it wasn’t too sweet. I’d definitely get one again. The nitro coffee from Rwanda was so creamy in taste you didn’t need cream added to it.

After we picked up whoopie pies with extra to share with family later, we took a short drive to Fort Williams. I think it’s good to be familiar with what’s near you because there are a lot of beautiful places in Maine. We grabbed lunch at Bite Into Maine and enjoyed the lobster BLTs. The bread was so good! It was a great treat to enjoy with Portland Headlight in view with a whoopie pie for dessert. The lobster rolls served by the food truck looked good too.


Today I ventured out and grabbed lunch in Portland. I decided to brave the construction and found a parking spot nearby to enjoy some food at Terlingua. I liked the feel of the restaurant and the copper tables. I got the pork shoulder sandwich with kettle chips. I liked the mix of slaw and pork that had a good balance and not too tangy. I want to go back again to try something from the dinner menu.

After lunch I wanted something sweet. I decided to go to monument square in Portland and check out One Six Green where they are offering coffee in a cone. I like to try unique things so why not. The shot of espresso was good, melting the chocolate inside the cone. They offer breakfast and lunch too making it a good place to grab food and coffee.
