You cannot stop at York Beach and not visit GoldenRod. This is a great candy store and restaurant with the centerpiece being the freshly made taffy. You can watch them make it from the glass windows and everyone enjoys that.

Their sister restaurant The Lobster Cove is open all year. The hours and days are limited, so call ahead. Also try the Fisherman's Dock on Rt 1. Food is better and hours were more predictable last I checked.
