A Friendly Spot On The Side Of The Road

After leaving Portland and heading north on 295 and 95 until we reached the outskirts of Augusta, we turned onto Route 3 and headed due east. From there, it’s two-lane road and local places — no chains or franchises.

This morning Russell and I stopped at one of those local spots, Lori’s Cafe, for a late breakfast. It’s right on the side of the road along Route 3, in a tiny town called Liberty. It’s the kind of place where the wait staff is friendly and unhurried, the food is served piping hot, there’s a box of little candies by the door — and you might just get your excellent coffee in a “hello Beautiful” cup. My pancake and sausage patties really hit the spot, too.

Lori’s Cafe is a great place to linger over a second cup of coffee. . . so we did. It’s also a great place to come back to . . . so we will.

  1. I used to live at the top of the big hill right there. We knew Lori and her family for years. They are quality people. I don’t live as close anymore and neither do my folks so we don’t get over there nearly enough. It is a good place.

    Also, if you’re at Lori’s and in the mood for an ice cream just pop over to John’s Ice Cream. It is all hand made right there and it’s excellent. Easily the best ice cream in a 20 mile radius.
