Pancakes and waffles and omelets, oh my! Vacation is the time to go all out when it comes to the first meal of the day. In your daily life, you may not want to spend the time, energy, or calories. But when you are traveling to places known especially for their foods, like the Maine blueberry or Texas barbecue, it would be a mistake to miss out. So, take advantage of your time here by maximizing your meals. Here at Captain Jefferds Inn, we have the best breakfast in Kennebunkport-but when it comes to other restaurants, we’ve compiled a list of other great spots where you can begin your day.
Your Guide to the Best Breakfast in Kennebunkport
Eating breakfast at Captain Jefferds Inn is the best decision you’ll make on vacation in Maine. However, if you’re a foodie and want to get out and try new Kennebunkport restaurants while you’re in town, here are a few other great options for breakfast in Kennebunkport to start your day off with a bang.
Captain Jefferds Inn
Three-course breakfasts are the perfect way to cap off a cozy night’s sleep at the Inn. After you sit down, prep your tastebuds with a cup of coffee, fruits, muffins, and other pastries. Then, get down to the main event, with dishes like peach melba French toast, baked eggs Florentine, turkey and mushroom herb crepes, and other deliciously sophisticated choices. After a meal like this, there’s no way your day of sightseeing in Maine will be anything less than perfect.
Housed in a colonial home similar to Captain Jefferds Inn, Musette offers classic breakfast items like pancakes, eggs benedict, avocado toast, salmon bagels, and more. On the weekends, brunch is more coastal: haddock chowder and Maine lobster rolls accompany burgers and sandwiches.
Salt & Honey
The meaning of “comfort food” differs depending on the region of the country. Salt and Honey combines them all under one roof. From the South is biscuits and gravy and huevos rancheros; and the Midwest, Bloody Marys. Lobster omelets and wild Maine blueberry pancakes with homemade lemon curd will make you feel more in touch with the East Coast. Your breakfast in Kennebunkport should include Maine blueberry pancakes and lobster dishes at least once.
Mornings in Paris
Carb lovers, beware: Mornings in Paris serves a large selection of all the pastries you could ever ask for. Cinnamon buns, tea cakes, and freshly baked croissants pair perfectly with signature drinks like the Nutella Latte, Cupcakeccino, or Red Velvet Latte. When coupled with the typical espresso drinks that Mornings in Paris offers, this shop is likely your best bet when searching for “local coffee shops near me.” Grab a macaron to go, and it will be hard to tell if you’re leaving a shop in France or here in Kennebunkport.
