I stopped for a light supper in the middle of my LL Bean excursion and was very pleasantly surprised by the fabulous chowder! Very thick and chunky, it was very flavourful and filling, making it good value for money. I also had gluten free bread...More

Stopped into the cafe for a quick drink, got strawberry lemonade for myself and cream soda for my bf. Cinnabuns for a snack were fresh, homemade and delicious

Located inside the LLBean store on Main Street, this cafe *could* be all plastic wrapped sandwiches and coin-operated machines.

I was disappointed in this cafe, while the food was good the menu was limited. There was limited seating inside and it was crowded at the counter as you ordered and then waited for your number to be called. There were tables outside also.

The lovely wife and I had lunch here mid shopping spree. In the Oakley shop we asked for a recommendation for somewhere to grab a sandwich and all the staff there agreed 1912 is the best local spot. We plumped for a salad and a...More

We stopped in Freeport to visit LL Bean. We needed lunch. The 1912 cafe is right inside the main LL Bean building. There was no line when we visited at about 2 PM. We opted for what is known as the Natural Salad. It had...More
