I visited Congdons once in the Fall, and I loved it. It is quaint, the service was great and the food was excellent. Try the pumpkin pancakes! They melt in your mouth. As I am writing this, I happen to be eating one of their delicious donuts :) When I visit Wells again, I will definitely be going to Congdons!

We're up to the Ogunquit/Wells area 1x/2x a year and always make the trip to Congdons. Superlative food,...great selection, delicious baked goods (always have to bring home some fresh baked bread).The service is always fast and friendly. When we announced that we had brought some newcomers, our server quickly delivered a blueberry fritter and some donut holes for the table to share. Thank you!

Congdon’s is our favorite place in Wells We love the donuts and just about everything else. If you have a favorite you better get there very early in the morning or order the day before because they will sell out, they’re that good. You would think in November/December in a beach area this wouldn’t be a problem, think again. Got there on a Thursday around 12:30 parking lot was packed. The people are all very nice as well. A must try you won’t be disappointed

These doughnuts are extremely tender and that is the best thing I can say about it. Though one might want to know why this is so. One thought I have is that they use an incredible amount of fat, which some people may not like. Or perhaps some suspicious method. Outside of that, the doughnuts definitely taste, and even look, artificial. I personally highly doubt there is real chocolate or lemon in the doughnuts I had, though maybe I am wrong. There probably is fake color. Also, the doughnuts are not very big at $1.79 each. I have had real gourmet doughnuts at Kane's in Saugus MA where you can tell they use real cream and other pure ingredients, and they are far superior to these. I would like to know why the doughnuts are so oddly tender...

Hello Daniel,
We're sorry our doughnuts didn't delight you. Rest assured there's nothing suspicious about the method in which we make our doughnuts -- just the same recipe our family has used for more than 60 years. There are no preservatives and the level of fat is consistent with any other doughnut, including Kane's, which we agree is another top-notch bakery. Our customers rave about the freshness of our doughnuts, so we're surprised to hear your experience wasn't the same. We are proud of our flavors and are quite particular about the products we use. We hope you give us another shot at some point in the future.
