This Café Glows with their Love of Good Food - Edit

Amazingly good homemade vegan mom 'n' pop food! The bread is whole grain, but light in texture. Their Chik 'n Salad (garbanzo-based?) sandwich always has really fresh romaine, onion, and tomatoes - with their own vegan mayo. I've had their waffles and no one would ever imagine they were a vegan adaptation. Their soups are always excellent, too. I had a take out today, which reminded me that I never reviewed them before.

Pros: 100% vegan, Mom and Pop make your food., Take out, and catering.

Worth going out of your way for - Edit

I love that this place exists. Surprisingly and delightfully a little busy when I went. Seems like a lot of locals (construction workers, neighbors, etc). They offer a lot of different sandwiches, some pastries and then some specials. I had the chickpea alfredo which came with buttered bread and a side salad. It was kind of bland at first but throw some salt on it and it was pretty good. The parking was a little difficult as both sides of the building were full and the street was a little busy so it was hard to find street parking. They also sell a couple different vegan items in the store as well and have limited seating. Overall cute little cafe and will definitely be returning to try a sandwich next!

Excellent and wholesome - Edit

I took a group of ten friends several of whom are very not vegan here and all were satisfied to say the least. I had the veggie burger which was crunchy and served on real bread instead of a bun. The tofu scramble looked perfect. The owner uses a homemade sauce instead of butter substitute for toast which I loved.

Pros: calming music, healthy

Cons: one cook so somewhat slow to order

Delicious Gem! - Edit

We happened to drive by this place on our way camping and couldn't be happier that we did! Great homemade vegan food and you can tell the owners really care. The homemade chick'n salad sandwich on homemade wheat bread is a must get! We liked everything so much we went back 2 days in a row. The local vegans and non vegans loved the food alike! Definitely worth the trip!

A Lunch to Rejuvenate - Edit

This place is a little Jewel in Maine and is totally worth a scenic drive to get there.

My wife had the Chick-In Salad sandwich which was on fresh whole wheat bread and was flavorful, moist, and delicious. We shared a bowl of Chili which wasn't too spicy but was chock full of goodness and the burrito I got was huge and came with a tasty sweet salsa.

Not to be outdone is the service. Michael is warm and welcoming and gives some of the best customer service you could ask for. He told us all about his story and tips for healthy living.

and lastly,... the price can;t be beat, 2 mains and a soup came to only about 16 dollars!

While I really wish this place was open for dinners too, this visit wasn't our first and it won't be our last, because every time we go our bodies (and our taste buds) thank us for it.

Pros: Healthy hearty food, Price, Super warm/welcoming Customer service

A delightful surprise - Edit

Unexpectedly driving into the lakes of Maine we had a delightful surprise when we found this restaurant. There was a small but appetising menu, with good and friendly service. Many local people patronised this restaurant in a small out of the way town.

Pros: Good food, Inexpensive, Good service

Cons: Limited menu

underwhelmed - Edit

While my companions' food was edible (one quesadilla, one lentil wrap), noone wanted to eat there again. Tofu scramble was inoffensive, but the salad and dressing were very bland. whatever was spread on the bread was just nasty. Not spoiled, just weird. I'm a longtime vegan, thought I'd seen it all, but couldn't finish the plate due to the overall off taste of everything. The place is filled with religious tracts,which I could live without, very cultish.

excellent and friendly restaurant - Edit

We (a family of 5) ate at Eden while on vacation in Maine. It is one of the very few restaurants in the region. The owners are very friendly and helpful- they even made something for one of our children which was not on the menu (creamed baked potato). The soups, bread casserole and salads were very good. The menu changes every day but almost any option will be a success. We considered the prices quite reasonable - all 5 of us had a substantial lunch for $50. The only drawback are the limited hours so you have gear your travel plans to their hours.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff

Cons: limited hours

The Best Little Restaurant in Maine - Edit

My boyfriend and I went out of our way to visit this little cafe in Norway, Maine. We weren't really sure what to expect since there were no reviews online, but I had a good feeling about it. My instincts were correct - Taste of Eden is fabulous! Seriously one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. This is accomplished through the following: friendly service from the two owners themselves, healthy food options that taste like the best comfort food, very low prices, and good portions. I wish we had been staying in the area and could have gone back. Next time we're in Maine, we'll definitely return. Don't miss it if you're in the area...they make their own bread and cheez sauce that are divine!

Pros: delicious food, very low prices for what you get, healthy

Cons: a bit out of the way for us, small - not suited for larger groups
