Riverside Café
151 Main St.,
Ellsworth, ME

Plenty of fresh rock crabmeat is generously mixed with herbs, bread crumbs, and a bit of egg to form a sandwich-filling cake that stuns the palate with its layers of flavors. Maine’s crab cakes are a different animal (literally) from Maryland’s, and Riverside’s are a prime example.

  • The best crabcakes ever are at the Green Street Cafe in Northampton MA–delicate and sweet. Check ahead; they are not always on the menu.

  • I strongly suggest the Maine Seafood Cakes at Azure’ Cafe in Freeport.
    Mixture of Maine Crab meat, scallops and shrimp.
