Try Park Row Granola from the Brunswick Inn for breakfast. Brunswick Inn

Breakfast offerings are generally delicious and plentiful in the area – wild blueberry pancakes with Maine maple syrup, omelets made with local, organic eggs, artisan breads used in French toast – but a few eateries feature something special and unique. Here are some of my favorites.

Bath

Winnegance Restaurant & Bakery, an old-fashioned café at 36 High St., features local lobster, haddock, crab and salmon in omelets and egg scrambles, plus sausage gravy over bacon, cheddar scones, huge and tasty muffins, bacon-wrapped scallops in egg dishes. Prices for breakfasts including home fries and toast are in the $10-12 range.

Mae’s Café & Bakery, 160 Centre St., is charming and comfortable and serves at least eight different types of Benedicts, including crab, chevre, avocado, chorizo and brie, among many other unusual ingredients. Prices range from $11-$15 and include home fries and house-made hollandaise. Welcoming surroundings and staff are priceless.

Brunswick

Broadway Deli, 142 Maine St., is a longtime staple in town that continues to serve innovative egg scrambles incorporating pesto, a variety of cheeses, meats, avocado and fresh herbs. Lox, quiche and blintzes are also on the menu in the $9-$11 range. The fluffy blueberry pancakes with Maine maple syrup are delightful.

Wild Oats Bakery & Café, located in the Tontine Mall, 149 Maine St., features at least eight different quiches each day plus four different burritos. Prices are from $4-9 per serving.

Eileen Horner, of the Brunswick Inn, creates a special treat for home breakfast eaters. The granola is pure, simple, light, crunchy and made with oats, coconut, almonds, walnuts and Maine maple syrup. It is sold at the Inn, 165 Park Row, and at Morning Glory Natural Foods, 60 Maine St., Brunswick for $11 per pound bag.

Yarmouth

The Nook at Handy’s, 367 Main St., is tiny but mighty. Tops on their list of specialties are breakfast sandwiches like the California Egg, consisting of egg, mashed avocado, tomato, bacon and cheddar, or the Sunrise Reuben of corned beef, mustard, gruyere and egg on marble rye. They also shine with oatmeal casserole – baked oatmeal, raisin, seasonal fruit, cinnamon butter and Maine maple syrup. Prices $6-9.
