Local Sprouts Cafe is a community gathering place that offers delicious local food at affordable prices in a comfortable environment. Our  menu features local and organic breakfast, soup, salads, baked goods and entrees.  We also offer fair-trade coffee, local herbal teas, local kombucha, local beer, organic & local wines and meads. We are open from morning to night and host performances and events at night.

Our food comes from local farms in Maine. Our goal is to grow sustainability through connecting our urban community with the food they eat and with the farmers who grow their food.
