Cappy's Chowder House, Camden, Maine

(Editors note: Unfortunately from what I have been reading Cappy's Chowder House has closed. There is plenty to do in Camden so this is still a destination worthy of a road trip.  Happy travels everyone, Rich)

Camden, Maine is one of those picturesque New England coastal towns that you really should visit when you have a chance. You may recall that Memorial Day this year was miserable weather wise. With the rain pouring outside we debated whether to take a road trip or stay home. Well, you guessed it, getting out of the house and on the highway won out over hanging out at home so we started driving.

When we arrived it was still not the nicest of days as you can see below:


But we always try to turn a bad day into a good one and what better way to do this than by having lunch since we were starving after the long trip. We walked along the Main Street and basically stopped at the first restaurant that we saw that was Cappy's Chowder House. What could be better than clam chowder on a cold rainy day? Nothing.


Try something a little different, a haddock Reuben with hand cut fries:


After you finish your meal, you can take a quick walk down the street where you’ll find Cappy's Company Store and Bakery


Of course we bought a few goodies to take home with us:


The desserts were very good.

Having been to Camden more than once over the years here are a few suggestions on things to do:

I remember fondly my first multi day trip sailing on the Angelique.   

There is plenty of opportunity to browse the many shops on Main Street.

For places to stay, we recommend the Inn at Ocean's Edge

Walk around the beautiful park and grass.
