A bit farther from our house, but I can't not recommend it. Simply the best, most decadent baked goods in Portland. Pies. pastries, cookies, and savory fare. Best of all is the breakfast sandwich on a fresh, buttery biscuit. The coffee is roasted at Tandem Coffee, right around the corner from our house.

Taking the short ferry to Peaks Island is one of our top recommendations when the weather is good. You can rent bikes, get lunch at the cafe or the Inn, and explore some of the hidden beaches on the "back shore". Also, there is an extensive abandoned WWII bunker,. Battery Steele, that is open to explore--just be aware that it's not maintained or staffed, so use common sense (and bring a flashlight).
