The Best Lobster Roll

Castine Variety Store, Castine, Maine

This waterfront general store makes an immense version of the classic New England lobster roll—chilled meat in a buttered, toasted, split-top bun. You can eat it there, among the postcards and rental DVDs, or cross the street and gaze out over the harbor.

What you’ll shell out: $9.99

Still hungry? Join the locals here for a no-frills eggs-and-bacon breakfast, and catch up on the town gossip. 1 Main St.; 207/326-8625
