Joseph’s By the Sea

January 14, 2013

Joseph’s By the Sea offers a nostalgic dining experience, especially in the off-season. It is banquet and wedding reception food, but it is banquet and wedding reception food done well. The staff is friendly, and if you are looking for a night (or brunch) that’s just off the beaten food trail, try Joseph’s. The ride through Old Orchard Beach in the off-season is fun, and I suggest ordering from Joseph’s long list of signature, warm espresso cocktails.

Flaky Tart

January 14, 2013

At its once-a-month prix fixe dinners, The Flaky Tart combines homestyle elegance and delicious upscale comfort food in a fashionable atmosphere that melds the vintage and contemporary. During the day, the bakery and cafe offers homemade soups, sandwiches on homemade bread, quiches, wraps, espresso drinks and baked goods. Dinner service may become more frequent next summer.

Mae’s Cafe and Bakery

January 14, 2013

Mae’s Cafe offers a sun-filled breakfast and lunch menu that includes old favorites and new twists, with particular emphasis on vegetarian and gluten-free options. Service is friendly, the atmosphere is charming, and although the space fills quickly on a Sunday morning, it never felt overwhelming or disproportionate. Try the cinnamon buns and the pecan sticky buns.

Tao

January 14, 2013

Uncommon food prepared expertly, with special attention to new and complementary flavors, textures and visuals. The results are surprising and enticing. A creative kitchen melds the best of Far East seasonings and food with local ingredients when possible, and seldom gets it wrong.

The Bayou Kitchen

January 14, 2013

The Bayou Kitchen has been serving Louisiana-style breakfast and lunch favorites to Portland for more than 23 years — for a reason. Until Portland has a uniquely Cajun or Creole sit-down dinner restaurant, those looking for a bayou influence must content themselves with earlier hours, but the upside of this schedule is an authentic bayou flair applied creatively to brunch favorites. Go, and I doubt you will be disappointed.

Bibo’s Madd Apple Cafe

January 14, 2013

Most people think of the cafe as a place where you pop in before curtain time at Portland Stage for a nice dinner of chipotle braised pork or steak frites, to quote a couple of items currently on the dinner menu. But it also serves lunch three days a week.
