Sundays in My Neck of the Woods


There's a little bakery and cafe on Main Street in Rangeley, Maine,  called Kelli's.  It's very small with just a half dozen tables.

I suspect they do a larger takeout business than actual dining in clientele.
There are showcases on the counter with an assortment of pies, cakes, and cookies, all made on the premises.  Several kinds of coffee are available as well as an assortment of fruit juices, milk, cocoa, and tea.

The homemade doughnuts caught hubby's eye... but they sold quickly to takeout customers.  Before the one waitress made it to our table, a lady came in and bought a dozen and a half, including all the delicious looking, plump glazed ones we both had been drooling over.   Hubby took this coconut doughnut before they were all gone!
He ordered scrambled eggs, home fries, and toast made from homemade wheat bread to go along with it.  The eggs were fluffy, the potatoes tasty, and the wheat bread was fresh and delicious.
My plan to have a glazed doughnut thwarted, I elected to have a warm strawberry muffin with a side of bacon.  The muffin was delicious, although I was hoping for more strawberries in it than there were.  The bacon was good, but I'd say my favorite was the muffin.

  How I longed for one of the glazed doughnuts we had spotted when we walked in!  But, alas, it just wasn't meant to be.

I was surprised to find that little bakery had a website, has a bigger menu than I realized, and has it's own website.  Click here to check it out.

Unfortunately the place is about 3 hours or so away from me, so I probably won't get back there anytime soon!n   Sp we said goodbye to Kelli's.

Note:  I was not compensated for this review, we paid for our food, and the opinions expressed are mine.

I love little bakeries like that!
Shame about missing out on the doughnuts though...
I planned on bacon for dinner tonight, on my pizza, but I forgot to get it out of the freezer.

You can barely see the donut for all the coconut! A strawberry muffin sounds delicious too.
