What a nice afternoon that Hot Diggity and I had. While cruisin' through Perkins Cove, we stumbled upon a great little coffee shop. We aren't ones that can pass up a coffee shop especially when it comes with a million dollar view (inflation adjusted, it's a 5 million dollar view). There it was sitting right on the open ocean, Breaking New Grounds Coffee & Tea.
What a find! The coffee was superb, the ambiance was unbeatable and the friendly staff made the visit all the better.
This is an official Yank's Franks recommendation...if you're a local, get there before the season kicks into high gear. If you're visiting for summer vacation, plan on a trip to Perkins Cove (you'll probably go there anyway) and keep your eyes peeled for Breaking New Grounds. The chief Barista, Ed tells us that in the summer there are Adirondack chairs out on the rocks for customers to enjoy. I'm telling you, not only will you enjoy their coffee (their bagels and pastries looked amazing), but you'll have a chance to live like a millionaire lounging on the rocky Maine Coast.
Breaking New Grounds has all the specialty coffee and tea drinks you could want and there's a bagel or pastry for every taste.
Frankly, Yank's Franks serves the BEST dogs! But, we do love our coffee especially when it comes with a magnificent ocean view.
