Deserving of the appellation 'best burger in Maine', the 7-napkin burger is to die for. Go early, only open until 3pm most days (Friday open until 7pm). Off the beaten path, but well worth it to the burger aficionado.

The Seven Napkin Burger is off the chain! If you are visiting the lighthouse definitely stop in and try this. Hope they are back open when we visit this summer.

We stay right around the corner from this charming general store and love the quaintness of this little bend in the road. We're lucky to have discovered it along with thousands of others. So good and right in our back yard!
