Great donuts are nothing unusual here but the maple squares are top of the bunch. Extremely soft, light, raised donuts filled with a fluffy cream and topped with a health dose of maple frosting. My second choice is the chocolate buttercrunch. A delicious chocolate cake donut topped with a crunch topping that works so well. Don't forget the breakfast sandwiches. I chose the ham, egg and cheese on a flaky cheddar biscuit, it had to be 3 inches tall!

On a previous road trip my bf and I stopped to get gas at the Irving and passed by Congdon’s Doughnuts. The line was so long, I knew it had to be good! As we passed I quickly wrote their name down as a “must try” for our next trip. Half a year later, I was so happy to do another trip up to Maine and got to try their doughnuts without the crazy line outside (thank goodness they were still opened for a snowy day). My bf and I bought a dozen and thoroughly enjoyed all the donuts. We were especially impressed at how LONG the donuts stayed soft! It took us a whole weekend, about 4 days to finish them. We especially loved the blue berry filling doughnut, the buttercrunch, and the raspberry. Seriously made with quality ingredients... a Dunkin Donut doughnut could never compare!

The best plain doughnut you'll ever eat, and if you haven't tried dunking one, I highly recommend it. Their maple-bacon is designed differently than most, with bacon IN the dough as well as on top, and a thinner glaze. The blueberry filled is incredible--but really, everything is.

How good is Congdon's? So good that I got in line at the drive thru at 5:30am, prepared to wait half an hour until opening, to make sure I beat the rush. No disappointments here. Memorably good doughnuts and memorable good friendly staff. I got a baker's dozen doughnuts for Valentine's Day including two "Seasonal Hearts" for my daughters. The staffer was SO attentive to maintaining the integrity of the products that there were four containers for the 13 doughnuts in order to keep them intact. rewards card, birthday coupon and I'm out of there in no time with excellent treats at an excellent price. Plenty of parking, but get there early to avoid the line. the drive thru can extend a looooong way.
