Polly's Pancake Parlor Review

In the Dexter family for three generations, Polly's has been serving up pancakes and waffles (from its own original recipe) since the 1930s. Since then, smoked bacon and ham, sandwiches on homemade bread, delicious baked beans, and even gluten-free items have been added to the menu. There are even desserts such as raspberry pie. Much of the food is made from grains ground on-site. The gift shop sells maple products.

    Worth the wait

    Every served here is from this farm. We have made the trip to Polly's four or five times and are always pleased. Their pancakes are the best I have ever eaten anywhere.
    Expect to wait at least an hour in the summer, longer on weekends. Just plan ahead, put in your name and take a scenic drive before you return.
    The views are nearly as good as the food.
    The owners received a James Beard award in 2006.

    We drove 2 hours for breakfast

    After reading about Polly's Pancake Parlor in Fodor's New England Guide I wanted to eat there. It took several years, but I finally made it and it was worth the wait and the drive from Bryant Pond, ME. Great service, atmosphere, even better food. Wondeful fruit and berries in season, the best home fries ever and of course the pancakes and all the maple syrup you can eat. Planning my next trip there this summer. You can order syrup and pancake mixes online year round.
