In June of 1983, a fire blackened the interior of our building, forcing our crew to scramble in our efforts to open for the summer season. In 1984, the Pancake Room and Congdon’s Doughnuts joined forces under one roof consolidating the best for both places for your dining pleasures. In 2002, a drive-through was added as a means to service today’s fast paced lifestyles.
We added a food truck park named Congdon’s After Dark in 2017. The first year it was a dirt lot with 3 trucks and now it holds up to 10 food trucks with two bars, live entertainment, and 100+ picnic tables for a whole lot of family fun throughout the summer season. Thankfully the food truck park, being outside, held strong through the COVID pandemic and brought some normalcy to a very abnormal time.
During the pandemic Congdon’s closed our doors to inside guests to keep our staff safe. That set up lasted for two years. We reopened inside again during the Spring of 2022 with a new layout. With staffing being a huge issue in the country we decided to change our business system to a café style where guests would seat themselves after ordering at the counter. This change has been hard on some of our guest as our dining room menu and full service dining staff were beloved to many. As the café style will be around for the foreseeable future, we will try to add some of our favorite items back onto the menu when able.
As always, Congdon’s is a family restaurant and bakery where the quality in our products has our utmost devotion, constantly striving for the best in everything we offer. See you next time!
