Doughnuts like no other, in central Maine
FAIRFIELD, Maine — You wouldn’t know it from the shabby gray storefront, but Kennebec Cafe may have the best-tasting cake doughnuts in the Northeast. They are at least the most imaginative. The 90-seat diner on the short strip of Main Street here in central Maine is owned by John and Ann Maglaras, and offers an array of home-cooked food for breakfast and lunch. The couple bought the red brick building that houses the cafe five years ago. And despite the struggling economy and a population drop in the town, the little spot is flourishing, especially on weekends when families and students from nearby Colby and Thomas colleges, and local folks fill up the old lacquered pine chairs and vinyl booths.
