With the amazing culinary offerings in and around Kennebunkport Maine, it feels like every week is restaurant week, but this year’s “Eat the Kennebunks” brings cocktails and cuisine to all this week, from May 13-18, 2019! From coffee and sandwiches to fine dining and everything in between, this year’s Eat the Kennebunks is not to be missed. With loads of participants around Kennebunkport and Kennebunk, there is truly something for everyone.
Eat The Kennebunks is a food celebration that’s on the new side, and that means that the
best place to find the most up to date information about who is participating, what they’re serving and when (and where) to find them, check out their Facebook page. But while you’re at it, make sure to like the Maine Stay page as well! (Couldn’t resist a shameless plug, now could we?) So this week, after tucking in to a gourmet breakfast at your boutique Maine hotel, consider wandering through town and enjoying all of the shops and galleries that Dock Square has to offer (Did you know Compliments Gallery is having a sale? I didn’t know they had sales!). Retail therapy is sure to whet your whistle, so check out the delectable German Iced Coffee at Dock Square Coffeehouse. If you mange to work up an appetite for lunch, there are loads of great options taking part in the restaurant week fun.
If you’re anything like me, our indulgent breakfast tides you over until late afternoon, and Cape Porpoise Kitchen offers just the thing when it comes to delicious (and sometimes lighter) options. It’s worth the short drive out of Dock Square into Cape Porpoise, a part of Kennebunkport Maine, and you’re not far from the pier and our local lighthouse (Instagram opportunity, anyone?) But definitely save room for more, because the dinner options this week are out of this world! With more than a few stellar fine dining restaurants offering 3 course dinners for just $45, how could you choose wrong? Fortunately bathing suit season is still a little ways away (even though Memorial Day Weekend is in just two short weeks – eek!), so now’s the time to indulge. Plus, calories don’t count when you’re on vacation, right? Let the countdown begin, because Eat the Kennebunks 2019 is here!
