Doc's Cafe and Marketplace Review - Cumberland, Maine
Yesterday for lunch, Gabrian and I had the opportunity to try out Doc's Café and Marketplace in Cumberland, Maine. I had a Living Social deal that gave us $16 to spend at the Café.
Right off the bat, we were off to a good start when heading for lunch. We really enjoyed the drive from Portland to Cumberland. It was so pretty looking at the Farms and gorgeous houses. While I am very happy in South Portland, I could totally see myself living in Portland.
The Café had ample parking but a word of warning is that it is not paved. So don't wear white during mud season and carefully consider your shoe choice. I would definitely enjoy sitting out on this patio during a sunnier day.
We placed our orders at the Counter with the friendly person at the counter. They were very helpful in getting us up to our $16. Once our order was completed, she told us to find a seat and they will bring out the food. I loved all of their comfy seating options.
I loved the pieces of art they had on the wall. They were all available for sale. If I had an extra $95, one of those would have definitely been coming home with me.
It wasn't long before our food was coming out of the kitchen. They had a large selection of sandwiches to pick from. I was really happy with our selections and have a couple others in mind for a future visit.
Gabrian chose the Kid's Peanut Butter and Jelly ($2.95). This was such a good deal. The bread was delicious and it was served with a natural peanut butter. This sandwich was huge!
I had the Hummus Wrap ($6.95) served with a nice assortment of fresh vegetables. It was a really nice light lunch.
We finished off our meal by sharing a Lemon Bar ($1.95). It was the perfect ending to our light lunch.
Overall, I was really pleased with our lunch here and will definitely be going back to try out some of their other sandwich combinations. I really enjoyed that this restaurant was filled with locals and the staff knew most of their names. It was such a nice sense of community inside this Café.
If you want to try Doc's Café and Marketplace for yourself, they are located at 371 Tuttle Rd., Cumberland, Maine.
