“Damn Fine Doughnuts in Wells!”
Congdon's is a family owned restaurant that specializes in freshly made doughnuts, pastries, and breakfast foods. We have been around since 1955. In 1945, Clint and Dot (Nana) Congdon, originally from Colebrook, NH, opened Congdon’s Restaurant on Main Street in Kennebunk. The restaurant was a thriving business, but the main reason people kept coming back was Nana’s homemade doughnuts. They later sold the restaurant, moving the doughnut equipment into a barn where they wholesaled doughnuts to area stores. In 1955, Nana, and her son-in-law Herb Brooks, built Congdon’s where it sits today. Fried seafood and grill items were added to the take-out menu, but the mainstay of the business was still the doughnuts. In 1962, the Pancake Room Restaurant was added to the property. In June of 1983, a fire blackened the interior of our building, forcing our crew to scramble in our efforts to open for the summer season. In 1984, the Pancake Room Restaurant and Congdon’s Doughnuts joined forces under one roof consolidating the best for both places for your dining pleasures. Having had additional doughnut outlets in Kennebunkport, Wells Beach, York Beach, and Ogunquit,our doughnuts have seen many homes. In 2002, Richard and Eleanora drive-through was added as a means to service today’s fast paced lifestyles.Congdon’s has always been a family restaurant where quality in our products has our utmost devotion, constantly striving for the best in everything we offer. We do hope you enjoy dining at our house.
If you happen upon this location, don't hesitate to stop for aome fresh and tasty donuts. However, theyre not worth driving out of your way for. Theyre good donuts, but dont buy into the hype of them being the best donut youll ever have.
Long wait time. I was pretty excited to try the homemade donuts, but not overly impressed by them. The chocolate glaze had a chewy texture like the dough was overworked. The breakfast was good, home fries were not browned or seasoned so pretty bland. The eggs were very good and coffee was good. The prices were high. 2 Congdon specials with coffee and small juice cost around 45$ with tip. The service was excellent.
Stopped in here shortly before closing, so our options were a bit limited. But we got doughnut holes and scones in a box to go. We wanted to bring something as we were visiting friends from out of state. Everyone enjoyed the snacks and despite being end of day it all tasted very fresh!
