Flatbread Company: This specialty pizza parlor offers waterfront views; 207/772-8777.

Breaking New Grounds: Coffee shops abound, but this one has good java and the most clever name; 207/228-2054.

Street & Co.: Dried herb bunches hang from the ceiling of this cozy restaurant, where you get perfectly prepared fish every time; 207/775-0887.

Valley View Orchard Pies: The Kroitzsh family sells homemade pies at the Portland Public Market; 207/228-2036.

Gritty McDuff's Brew Pub: Of the many local breweries, this is one of the most popular; 207/772-2739.
