Welcome To Congdon’s
Located in the beautiful seaside town of Wells, Maine, Congdon’s Family Restaurant & Bakery has been serving up world famous doughnuts and delicious breakfast items since 1955. While much has changed since we opened our doors, the family, location, and flavors, are the same as they were when we opened our doors decades ago — and is the reason so many consider us “a must” for anyone traveling to or through southern Maine.
A Family Tradition
In 1945, Clint and Dot (Nana) Congdon, originally from Colebrook, NH, opened Congdon’s Restaurant on Main Street in Kennebunk. The restaurant was a thriving business, but the main reason people kept coming back was Nana’s homemade doughnuts. They later sold the restaurant, moving the doughnut equipment into a barn where they wholesaled doughnuts to area stores.
In 1955, Nana Congdon, and her son-in-law Herb Brooks, built Congdon’s where it sits today. Fried seafood and grill items were added to the take-out menu, but the mainstay of the business was still the doughnuts. In 1962, the Pancake Room Restaurant was added to the property, where “Breakfast Anytime” was its main theme then.
