The Thomaston Cafe had a new life. New owner Kate has taken over and the Cafe we knew and loved is back! If you haven't been in awhile now is the time to try it again.

Was traveling in Rockland and wanted to take by mom to a quaint cafe. Our lunch was made by the chef/owner. We both had salads that were prefect with steak cooked to perfection. Wine was cold and service was perfect.
