Outdoor Dining in Kennebunkport

Outdoor dining in Kennebunkport is one of the most frequent requests we hear during the summer months, because even on an unusually hot day like today, the ocean breeze made it very pleasant to relax outside.  Although a few people chose to have breakfast in the comfort of our air conditioned dining room, most people opted to enjoy their breakfast on the wraparound porch.  And even with a cup of hot coffee in hand, everyone was very comfortable, all thanks to our… Read More
