You Haven’t Lived Until You’ve Eaten A Pie From This Roadside Bakery In Maine
There are plenty of lakes to fish, mountains to climb, trails to explore and lobster to consume when the weather turns warm in Maine. But what about dessert? Well, if you're in the mood for a homemade pie, you'd be wise to check out this roadside bakery near Sunday River in Newry.
It's called Puzzle Mountain Bakery, and for years they've been baking up delicious treats and making campers, hikers and just random passerbys extremely happy. Whether its that home cooked pie grandma used to make, a one-of-kind whoopie, or a to die-for maple cream cookie, Puzzle Mountain Bakery is the kind of roadside attraction that Maine needs more of.
But make sure to be neighborly when visiting. Unlike most establishments peddling their delicious wares, Puzzle Mountain works on an honor system and is cash only, there won't be any swiping of cards at this pitstop.
So where do you find this needle in a haystack? They're located at 806 Bear Mountain Road which is near the Sunday River complex as well as Grafton Notch State Park. Puzzle Mountain Bakery is a seasonal operation, so if you're looking for a warm pie in the winter, you'll be waiting awhile. So, who's ready for a road trip?
