Here is one persons take on when they dropped on by…
“From rehabbed gas stations turned organic coffee shops, breweries, bars, and dockside hand stretched pizza, Portland Maine is an unexpected foodie treat. I didn’t expect a popping college town with brick and mortar shops making it work along the Atlantic coast when I heard I’d be passing through. I was thinking of those classic small beach towns with a french fry stand and not much more than a diner or handful of chain establishments to pick from. The city of Portland was alive and crowded with a love of farm fresh and hand made. There was a Thai place on every corner and a thousand other options depending on what you were craving. Even the street vendors had flare as a gourmet s’mores cart caught my eye as I was making my way through the town.”
Hot Suppa: 703 Congress St, Portland, ME 04102 – Sitting down for a weekday breakfast is anything but boring in the trendy town of Portland. I walked into this bar at 9 AM on a Thursday to find a line waiting to be seated and the bar already packed for the day. I eased myself into a spot at the bar and promptly ordered an iced coffee from the tender and asked what the best options were. I went with her recommendations, the omelet and the grits. The omelet was good. Not write your mom, best breakfast ever omelet, but good and packed with cheese and spinach. The grits though, my side for the dish, did not disappoint. They were smooth and creamy. As I was sitting eating, a waiter updated the daily menu to include a crazy twist on a Monte Cristo that I am both grateful and disappointed that I didn’t catch sooner. The locals tell me that lunch there is a must to try too. Don’t let the name fool you, Hot Suppa is way more than a bowl of classic comfort soup. Click HERE to read more on their list of great Eats!…
