Sundays In My Neck of the Woods




The Tory Hill Cafe is a little diner at 15 Pinkham Drive in Buxton, Maine.   It's actually larger on the inside than it appears on the outside.


The main dining area has half a dozen booths, 4 tables, and a counter that seats 7.

Then there is a larger dining room adjecent to this one.  I took a photo of the wall decorations above the archway to the additional dining room.


I apologize that the photo isn't clearer--my hand just wasn't as steady as I'd have liked.  Above the entrance to the second dining room are two cross-cut saws with landscape photos painted on them.  They were really pretty!


We were there for breakfast.  Mr. Eva had French toast made from homemade white bread with bacon and scrambled eggs.  Although you don't see it in this picture, they serve a syrup that is thick and delicious.  I tasted it and thought it might be REAL amber maple syrup.  I asked the waitress about it, because I would have definitely bought some if I knew the brand, but it was a Sysco product.  Sadly, they only wholesale to eateries.  : (           Mr. Eva thoroughly enjoyed his breakfast, and if this place were a little closer to home, we'd breakfast there often, I'm sure!



I had two eggs, over easy, bacon, homefries, and homemade wheat toast.  Everything was delicious, but the homemade wheat toast was to die for!  It was sooooo good!

I'm not a fan of going out for breakfast, but this place makes me want to come back often!  It was one of the best restaurant breakfasts I've had!

Oh my! That does look yummy!
Are the crosscut saws an emergency measure in case your knife can't handle the bacon or toast? Or maybe they're for the lunchtime steaks? Ha Ha, just kidding.

Makes my mouth water, Eva... that homemade toast... mmm.

Eva...I made pancakes for breakfast yesterday. For xmas, we got a bottle of Real Amber Pure Maple Syrup. The color was beautiful and the taste was ok....but it was so thin, it sunk right into the pancakes? Sadly, I have only had real syrup twice now and I have been disappointed both times. Is this the same thing you are talking about?

I have seen those saws before. They are very pretty and are definitely picture worthy.

I love finding hole in the wall breakfast places. This place looks delicious!

It's because of places like this that I miss Maine. You just can't get something like this at a chain.
So, up yours, IHOP and Denny's!

I love Sundays in your neck of the woods! I haven't been out to breakfast in so long - everything looks scrumptious!

I'm too hungry and I need a quick meal before I can get myself out of the house. However, I do love a good breakfast when I'm traveling, something like this, with all the fixings.

I love going out for breakfast. Dang, that bacon looked good. You know what I have a hard time finding though? A good waffle! Really. You wouldn't think so. Pancakes -- everywhere. Waffles? Not so much.

I noticed on the menu that it looks like they are ONLY open for breakfast and lunch, right?

Gail said...

Now, that makes me HUNGRY!!!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Going out for breakfast is my favorite meal to have out! Hubby and I usually go out every weekend and take out time eating while we read the newspapers. THIS looks like our kind of place!

Now I'm hungry :-)

I LOVE going out for breakfast! Talking my better half into it, however, is another story. Anywho, now I'm hungry. Your Sundays do that to me. Hugs, Eva!

Simone said...

Looks like a cozy cafe. The french toast looks yummy!

Vidya Sury said...

I am glad I just had dinner :-) Sounds like a lovely place. We sometimes go out for brunch on Sunday and really enjoy it.

I'm sitting in my son's apartment right now with no food and no car (and nothing within walking distance). As you can imagine, I am wishing I could crawl into the pictures in this post!

Terri: I'm not big on going out for breakfast, but this place was worth the trip!

Wayne: I just wish my picture had been clearer!

Molly: It does hit the spot once in a while!

Debbie: The longer maple syrup is boiled down, the darker and thicker it gets. You don't often find it as thick as it was at this cafe, which is why I wanted to know the brand. I love thick, thick syrup. When I was a kid, we used to gather and boil down our own. It was delicious!

I'm really into eggs over easy lately.

I love little mom & pop restaurants like that. The food looks delicious!
