Contemporary cuisine in a friendly, picturesque setting...
The Olde Post Office Cafe is many things to many people. For some, it’s a hub of community life; a place to meet friends and neighbors and catch up over a good cup of locally-roasted coffee and a piece of our house-baked pastry. For others, it’s their haven for good food, be it breakfast, lunch, dinner or a take-out meal on the run. And for still others, the cafe, perched on the edge of Lake Minnehonk in Mount Vernon Village, has become a destination; word spreads about our commitment to use the freshest ingredients - locally sourced whenever possible – for our menu of creative, contemporary cooking. And now, with our new wine and beer service, the Cafe will be a place to taste the best micro-brewed craft beers and hard ciders Maine has to offer, and sample a changing menu of affordable wines from around the world, served by the glass or carafe.
For me, the Cafe is a labor of love. I love good food and I love preparing and sharing it. That the tastes we create resonate with our patrons is my reward. But I don’t do it alone. My wife and co-owner, Vicki, our CFO, handles all our business affairs leaving me free to focus on the food. And Sarah Chiasson, our chef/manager, inspires the kitchen with her insight, talent and aesthetics. She is a gifted cook and baker with an innate ability to create new and exciting menus that put us at the forefront of the central Maine dining scene. Together, we are joined by a dedicated team of cooks, servers and kitchen support staff who share in our mission of providing a unique dining experience.
If you are among our regular patrons, we thank you for your continued support. After all, it takes a village to ‘raise’ a cafe. And if you are visiting us for the first time, please take a moment to introduce yourself when you come. We’re always glad to see new faces.
