We had heard that there could be a long wait for your lunch to be prepared, so we checked the menu online and called in our order. This was my first visit to the East Boothbay General Store, but others I was with had been there before. I had the Spicy Thai Peanut Wrap which was wonderful. The problem here... More

What a great find. We looked for espresso coffee all over BoothBay and everything was closed for the season so we were delighted to drive to East BoothBay and discover the General Store. Food options looked very good with house made muffins and cakes looked delicious. Sat on the veranda in the sun and thoroughly enjoyed our coffee. We will... More

This little store in the village of East Boothbay offers fresh baked goods, hot and iced coffee, souvenirs, an adventurous menu of soups and sandwiches. Imagine finding a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich here. If I lived nearby, I'd stop in every day.

Staying in East Boothbay and not finding any breakfast places led us to this charming general store that had great breakfast wraps, breakfast pizza, coffee, tea and yummy treats. We ordered and had a small window side table enjoying this find. I had the Apple Brie Bacon Wrap, which was just the BEST! My BF had the breakfast pizza and... More

The East Boothbay General Store is an authentic old time general store with everything you'll need for a great Maine visit. But, don't miss the food! The freshly-made muffins were awesome! Such a great place!!!

Stopped for a cup of chicken corn chowder with a sandwich. It was really good. The soup was full of white chicken, potatoes, & corn. The cold club sandwich on wheat was good. Great place to stop & pick up sandwiches & take to one of the beautiful vistas in the area.

The food here is very good! They have wonderful lobster rolls, sandwiches and pizza. We have gone here a number of times and always love the food. The only problem is the the service at the front counter. The young people who have taken our orders are not very friendly. We always feel we are putting them out when we... More

We've been coming here for years. It's conveniently located near a bed-and-breakfast that we come to every Fall and the food is good and quick. We enjoy their hummus sandwiches pizzas and lobster rolls, taken back to our bed-and-breakfast to enjoy in peace and with beautiful views. Both last year and even more so this year, the staffs been unfriendly.... More

Dear Randonneur03, First of all, I am horrified. I'm also grateful for your feedback. Our store has always prided it's self on being a welcoming familiar place for people locally and visitors. Its been a hallmark of what has always mattered most in running EBGS and your recent experience shows that we are certainly not meeting my expectations. If there... More
