Since it’s acquisition by Sherman’s Bookstores this local hangout has thrived. They’ve expanded the variety of books and gifts, extended hours, and revitalized the cafe. (Ampersand) @ Cafe also has longer hours, better baked goods, and quite a variety of coffees and teas. Very hospitable place.

Not very fancy or super clean, but the prices are good and there is always an open table. It is a great place to have a quick morning meeting or people watch downtown.

We ordered americano's which the board showed coming in one size. were then confused by the person at the counter asking what size we wanted. The coffee itself was good. were disappointed that came in a paper cup and not a china cup.

So ,right next to the best book shop in town is this neat little cafe, where you can read and relax as well as enjoy some really fine pastries and super snacks, I think that their curried chicken salad sandwich is outstanding. Choose your brew from the coffee bar. I nice place to meet friends or make new ones. The knowledgable staff at the shop is a rare find in many stores today, take advantage of the recommended selections.

When I visit Maine this is one of the places I always have to visit. The bookstore may be my favorite, but having a well staffed and enjoyable coffee house with it is a five star plus. Nice sitting inside or out, always good.
