Searching for Sweets in Kennebunkport Maine

If you’re anything like me and have more than just a single sweet tooth (I’d say I have a whole mouth full!), look no further than Kennebunkport Maine to quell your cravings.  Fortunately, though not for my waistline, there are lots of great options for candy, cookies, and frozen confections just a short stroll from our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast.  But if you find yourself hankering for a sugar fix before you even arrive, Yummiescandy store in Kittery is a great place… Read More

Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Kennebunkport

Since I was one of those kids that would try (and almost always love) anything you put on my plate, the idea of hunting for restaurants with kids’ menus is pretty foreign, but fortunately for families visiting Kennebunkport, there are quite a few great options for pint-sized visitors.  Inspired by a little guy visiting us with his family this week, I decided to look into menus that are specifically designed with kids in mind, because while most Kennebunkport restaurants are happy to… Read More

Lookin’ for Lobster Shacks in Kennebunkport Maine

If there’s one thing I am asked every day, it is where to find the best lobster shacks in Kennebunkport Maine – and luckily for us (and for you) we have three that are just great!  So while I would never attempt to rank them or label one as the “best”, each one has something to make it unique.  Just around the corner from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast is The Clam Shack, which sits on the bridge dividing Kennebunkport from the… Read More

Now Open for Ice Cream In Kennebunkport – Rococo

While Memorial Day weekend might have kicked off the summer, it wouldn’t have been official in Kennebunkport unless it was celebrated with ice cream.  But since I missed the grand opening celebration of Rococo Artisan Ice Creamlast week, I decided to pay them a visit after lunch on Saturday.  Granted, we could not have asked for better weather at the end of May, so that really got me in the mood for a cup. Located right on Spring Street, just down the… Read More

Great Casual Kennebunkport Restaurants

Today, as I was discussing Kennebunkport restaurants with a new employee, I realized that it might be helpful to share some of the insights.  Fortunately for us, and for all visitors to our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast, this community is filled with great places to dine, and not all of them call for snazzy outfits or result in astronomical bills.  And even in April, before 100% of restaurants have opened their doors, there are lots of places for a good casual meal.… Read More

Bandaloop Restaurant Reopens in Kennebunkport!

While this week was notable for lots of things in Kennebunkport, the reopening of Bandaloop Restaurant topped the charts of many locals and visitors alike.  Last night marked the restaurant’s reopening after a nearly eight week long hiatus, and with temps well into the seventies when its signature red doors opened at 5, it felt more like summer than the start of spring!  Despite the fact that no one at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast has given its new menu a test… Read More

The Reawakening of Kennebunkport Restaurants

Early April is a very exciting time in Kennebunkport, with the weather warming, the days lengthening, and restaurants reopening.  And while a good many are open all year long, a few are indeed seasonal – some because their proprietors need a good long rest after a busy season, and others because they are situated in “charming” buildings that just can’t handle a rough Maine winter (not that we had one this year!).  Yes, believe it or not, quite a few of these… Read More

Maine Restaurant Week Returns to Kennebunkport Maine!

Maine Restaurant Week is a wonderful way to test out new restaurants or enjoy different options at some old favorites, and fortunately for us, several Kennebunkport Maine restaurants have chosen to participate in 2012.  But if you’re interested in exploring, there are loads of options in other nearby communities.   So as I started looking forward to this year’s Maine Restaurant Week (March 1-10, 2012), I began to think about why exactly I enjoy eating in restaurants and narrowed it down to three… Read More

Kennebunkport Maine Welcomes Tia’s Topside

As you already know, Kennebunkport Maine is a fantastic destination, especially for people who enjoy dining, but Tia’s Topside is certainly a welcome addition to the culinary scene.  Each morning on my way to our Kennebunkport Bed and BreakfastI pass through Lower Village Kennebunk, which has featured a rather delapitdated building on a hill overlooking the water.  Long empty, we have been waiting for someone to restore the facade to its original splendor, and the wait is finally over! Work began late… Read More
