Kitchen Garden Café
The Kitchen Garden Café in the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens Visitor Center offers fresh and delicious fare, whether for lunch or a snack. Whenever possible, we use local and organic ingredients. Because we use only the best available ingredients, our menu changes frequently based on availability and season. Packaged snacks are also available in the Gardens Gift Shop.
New for 2014 – stop by the new walk-up window on the Kitchen Garden Terrace for quick dining service daily.
Kitchen Garden Dinner Series featuring Maine’s top chefs, spring and late-summer teas, and other events provide more opportunities for visitors to enjoy our beautiful café.
Catered lunches are available for groups year-round with advance reservations.
The Kitchen Garden Café is open from April 15 through October.
Hours are usually 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Kitchen Garden Dinner Series
Chef Richard Hanson of Cleonice
KITCHEN GARDEN DINNER SERIES
Wednesday, September 24
Cleonice at the Maine Grind is located in Ellsworth, Maine. Each year, the Kitchen Garden Dinner Series draws "foodies" across Maine and because seating is limited, dinners typically sell out quickly. Wine and gratuities are included. Should an event be sold out and you wish to be placed on our waiting list, please contact Courtney Locke at email@example.com.
Cleonice presents dishes from around the Mediterranean Rim blending the freshest local produce and meats available with fine imported ingredients. Since 2002, Chef Richard Hanson has presented the cuisine of the Mediterranean prepared from the finest local ingredients. Cleonice – pronounced in the Southern Italian fashion “Cleo-Niece” – offers lunch, dinner and the only Tapas bar north of Portland. Cleonice offers both delicious cuisine and affordable selections in a casually sophisticated atmosphere.

Fuel, located in the historic Lyceum Hall in Lewiston, Maine, is a Modern Bistro and wine bar. Fuel's cuisine is solidly based around French Country food, with some American twists. Approachable, hearty cuisine, done well.
Fuel is passionate about where they purvey their food, and utilize many local growers and suppliers. All of their beef is Midwestern grass fed, the pork is from Iowa and is hormone and antibiotic free, as is their chicken.
