Portland Me USA DuckfatWhere to Eat:

Duckfat – Local owned restaurant with classic Belgium fries made with duckfat made into a great Poutine. Plus they are the kings of making coleslaw of all different kinds. They also make a delicious pork prosciutto which we heard is made at the owners 40 acre farm.

Otto Pizza – Great thin crust pizza available at multiple locations across town, pick up a slice or utilize their free delivery. We had the 4 cheese with peperoni and it was better then any pizza from our home town.

Standard Baking Co. – Well this place is something else, if you like baked goods you are in for a real treat. Especially the CinnaBuns aka Sticky Buns! This place was recommend by a coffee shop owner near High St and it was differently worth the walk. I’m not really into danishes or donuts but I do love CinnaBuns and this place makes it with a croissant, cinnamon, sugar and butter. Try it you won’t be disappointed.  Google Map Location
