We loved this place. We are on very special diets, and they easily adapted for our benefit. The cold food was cold, the hot food was hot, and the food had flavor. The view of the weirdos on the street (Sorry for the description, but...More

Do you remember all those great restaurants of the past like The Roseland (Riverside Drive, Augusta) and Ardido's (Augusta Airport) and my all time favorite, Foster's Restaurant (Old Granite Building, Downtown, Augusta) ????? Well, the Downtown Diner is like that, with the same "comfort food"...More

Was formerly the Bond Brook Pancake House, Mt Vernon Ave, Augusta, ME. Owners had an opportunity to move into a restored, historic building in the heart of the downtown business district. Even managed to preserve a stained-glass storefront-wide window advertising a shoe store which occupied the site in the original building. Specializes in breakfast and lunch, opening at 5:30 or 6:00 most mornings and closing at 2:00. Numerous breakfast combination plates available whenever they're open. Soup-and-sandwich specials daily featuring their home-made soups and chowders. Simple, straight-forward seating, reasonablle prices, and a staff that can be as fun or formal as you like. Real favorite with "the locals", the local electric and telephone line crews, and downtown office workers. Would suggest Trip Advisor discontinue Bond Brook Pancake House listing -- business no longer exists and rental property where they used to be is now vacant.
