While walking through the LLBean store, we looked at the menu and decided to give the 1912 Café a try. The sandwiches were delicious. The place was a little pricey but well worth every penny.

Went here for a quick bite before taking the last bus trip back to Portland . It's black friday after 6pm. The service was fast. I thinks they are overpriced or I was over charged. I ordered 2 crab and corn chowder soup (medium) and 2 apple cider drinks. After paying, the cashier( older lady between the two) tore my... More

Stopped in for a bagel and coffee before shopping and decided to try the 'Matinicus' (smoked ham, brie cheese, egg and jam). It was so good!! I was thinking that jam would be served on the side, but it really went well on this bagel. The staff was super, and the cafe spotless. I'll definitely eat here again.

Nice place to get lunch while shopping. Good variety for a small place, and the outside seating is a bonus in good weather. A little expensive, but the food is good quality.

It was nice to have a place to get a cold drink while shopping. The root bear and cream sodas were very good. The outdoor seating on a beautiful fall day was nice also.

Good portion of food, expensive with a family, and watch the clam chowder. I ate a bowl of it and later last night I had food poisoning cause it was bad and I didn't know it. So please watch what you choose to eat.

Shopping at LLBean's? This is a great place for lunch. Huge salads which my husband managed to finish. I had the black watch sandwich which was the right size and delicious to the final bite.

The flavor variety and seasoning combinations brought out tremendous tastes in the food. It was the most surprising experience in Freeport! All my family age 6 on up found great pleasure in our dining experience there. Also the local sodas on tap were a big, big hit- with the cost of refills going to local charity! Hats off to 1912...
