My family and I visited Bar Harbor, and Acadia National Park for our weekend getaway.
Our first restaurant stop Friday night, was en route to Bar Harbor. We stopped in Bangor, ME, where we enjoyed dinner at a unique, Mainer-themed restaurant- Timber Kitchen and Bar.
We spent the rest of the late afternoon at a beautiful winery, surrounded by green fields, sampling different varieties of wine. We followed up with a brick oven pizza for a late lunch. I ordered a veggie pizza with no cheese, and nutritional yeast on the side.
Dinner for the night was at an Irish Pub where we, of course, enjoyed fresh Maine lobster, accompanied by live music. Luckily, they offered gluten free sandwich bread so I was able to enjoy a lobster roll as a lobster sandwich!! (I apologize for the low picture quality- it was dimly lit inside). The photo doesn’t do my lobster roll (or sandwich-I should say) justice!
Sunday morning brunch was at the Great Maine Breakfast. I (again) got a tofu scramble, gluten free bread, and an apple spice vegan pancake on the side. This restaurant is great for traditional dinner foods!
Our day was spent at Acadia National Park so lunch was a quick stop at Thrive Juice and Smoothie Bar. This place is the perfect spot for the health conscious eater. They offer smoothie bowls, date bars, salads, juices, and smoothies.
The afternoon was spent exploring the scenic landscapes of Acadia. The views are breathtaking.
After several hours at Acadia, our final meal was at Jalapeños, where we shared a $10 pitcher of margarita, chips and salsa, and lobster tacos. It was the perfect end to another amazing year in Bar Harbor.
Overall, the food on Maine’s coast is to die for. It’s fresh, locally sourced, and flavorful. I recommend making a trip out here to enjoy gorgeous scenery and tasty food!!
