My Maine Bites: Sweets and Treats

August 23, 2017

We snuck away to Portland Maine last year to celebrate my 30th birthday last year and I can still taste the delicious treats we sampled across the adorable seaport town.

First stop was a slice of blueberry bar from Two Fat Cats Bakery while we waited for a table at Eventide.  Of course it had to be blueberries because why not?  Buttery and intensely fruity, the bar was one of our first delicious bites in the city of Portland and happy to have it be such.  This little unassuming local bakery also churned out some delicious looking pies that smelled incredibly irresistible but we refrained to save room for some delicious lobster rolls.

For breakfast, we hit up The Holy Donut while on a run because we had passed the mile mark and deserved a break.


This local gem uses local potatoes to make its donuts whose flavors change daily.  The flavors were intense and the texture moist and dense.  We couldn’t decide which of the 16 daily flavors to chose from so we decided to go with our top 6 because we only turn 30 once right?

Of course the maple bacon was a favorite of ours because bacon just makes everything better.  Cake donuts are usually not my jam but these almost changed my mind…

And while meandering through the cute streets of downtown Portland, we stumbled upon Mt Desert Island Ice Cream.  This little ice cream shop had unique flavors from brigadeiros to bay of figs to coriander and blackberry swirl.  If only we had found it at the beginning of the trip we would have tried everything they had to offer.
