Stonewall Kitchen Café
What started as a simple jam enterprise for Jonathan King and Jim Stott in 1991 blossomed into a culinary empire that includes a cooking school, and as of 2003, a café. Order at the counter in Stonewall’s southeast Maine company store and grab one of 60 indoor seats, or in warmer months, a wooden table in the garden courtyard. At breakfast, popular options include the Spa Wrap with cage-free egg whites, spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes. Heartier eaters often turn to French toast stuffed with cream cheese and wild Maine blueberry jam. Lunch utilizes local lobster in signature BLTs, Reubens, and “ultimate” lobster rolls. Land-based creations consist of homemade chicken salad sandwiches and hamburgers.

Savory yeast-dough pies are the pride of Russian cuisine and the star attraction at Stolle, a popular chain of cafés founded in 2002. At this central branch near the city’s main street, Nevsky Prospekt, regulars choose among half a dozen savory and sweet pies at the front counter, then tote slices to a back room that’s decorated with vintage photographs of St. Petersburg.
We loved: Classic cabbage-and-beef pie; rabbit-and-mushroom pie.
