We are blown away by this review- thank you SO much, Martha J! "THE BEST even 40+ years later! I started coming to Maine over forty years ago as a small child with my parents. We lived in Ohio and drove the 17 hours to Maine each summer. For two glorious weeks, we would have Congdon’s Doughnuts and drive away counting down the days until we could return again. I just returned from Maine, taking my own family there this time, and the doughnuts were still amazing! Soft, flavorful, and just perfect. Gary still runs a great place. The workers were efficient and kind, as they always are. Don’t let a line scare you; the line at the walk up windows moves quickly. Now, my own teenagers are home talking about Congdon’s Doughnuts. Thanks for the amazing food!" ... See MoreSee Less
