The sandwiches and baked goods at Clayton’s are excellent! The fresh mozzarella sandwich with sundried tomato pesto, fresh sliced tomatoes, and fresh crispy lettuce was so delicious. I would definitely order that again! The whole sandwich was plenty of food to keep me full all afternoon. Looking forward to trying their half sandwich and cup of soup combo next time. We picked up our takeout sandwiches around 1:30 and the inside was packed. I definitely recommend calling ahead to place a to-go order, and avoiding peak lunch hours if you don’t want to wait in a line. Lots of outdoor seating to eat your food!
Delightful stop along US 1. The patio was bustling when we showed up and people were ordering from the kitchen side. There was also another counter serving baked goods so we got a few to try. I especially loved the pumpkin cheesecake with a really tasty crust and filling that was not too sweet, but flavorful. There is a whole section of candy in the back, and signs around the store showcasing the accolades. Coffee was good and fresh, food looked good, and highly recommend as a stop just outside of Portland.
Lunch was FANTASTIC!!!!
We’ve found another great food place in Yarmouth, this time it seemed ideal for take out and more of a casual dining experience. They had a pretty substantial menu, with some really filling soups. At another counter, you can order barista style drinks, and some utterly DECADENT style desserts. I can’t wait to go back and try their key lime or lemon tarts. I ordered the falafel wrap, husband had the crab cake sandwich and we both tried the mushroom soup (which was gloriously herbed up.) Given that it was a rainy day, I added their Chai, and it arrived the perfect temp for me. Being recently transported to Yarmouth, I can honestly say, I’ll be back!
