Maine Eats: Congdon’s Doughnut Shop @ Wells

View more posts from our 1st anniversary trip to Southern Maine!: Markey’s Lobster Pound @ Seabrook NH; Blue Rooster Food Co. @ Portland ME; Shipyard Brewery @ Portland ME; Mike’s Clam Shack @ Welles ME; Congdon’s Doughnut Shop @ Wells ME.

Went to Congdon’s (we laughed a bit at the name, no doubt!) after lunch at Mike’s! We were mostly interested in donuts, but found out that Congdon’s had a dining room for sandwiches and other lunch bites too! They were running an insane promotion while we were there–buy 6 get 7 free donuts! That’s about $8 for THIRTEEN donuts. Being responsible adults, we decided not to indulge in the sweet, and got a donut each. Individual donuts cost $1.50 each, so you can see how that buy 6 get 7 free deal was insane!!! The inner auntie in me wanted to kill myself for not getting the good deal, but I know that it was the healthier choice!

The server recommended the apple crunch and honey dipped donuts!


J got the honey dipped donut. It was significantly smaller than my apple crunch donut, and did not have any hint of honey, but it was the softest and moistest donut I’ve ever had the pleasure to eat. It was awesome in that respect, but was otherwise not special.


My apple crunch donut was a monster compared to the honey-dipped one. It was easily twice the size! This donut, while less moist, definitely had an appley flavor to it. There were also chunks of apples in the donut! I loved it!

Sometimes I wish we weren’t practical adults. I would have easily bought 13 donuts and tried more flavors. I bet they are all good!
