AND YES THEY ARE!
Wicked Good Sandwiches – the sign doesn’t lie!
This bright red building is Edna and Lucy’s in Pownal, Maine. (407 Hallowell Road, Pownal, ME 04069)(207) 688-3029
Edna and Lucy’s is one of the best sandwich shops ive been to, and they are located in a tiny rural town in the countryside of Maine; just north of Freeport. I had a Maine Italian (different than an italian sub). Maine italians are (my family will be correcting me if I get this wrong) ham, provolone, onions, green peppers, tomatoes, pickles, and olives on a soft roll (or hotdog bun). They are not toasted. There is no ‘italian’ meat. It is a MAINE italian. So all you Bostonians and New Yorkers; stop your cursing…im kinda with you; till I had one…Maine italians are really good. They are much closer to what us people who grew up in MA (except for the cheese choice) call AN AMERICAN.
Not the point
Edna and Lucy’s has a whole range of sandwiches that would stop the cursing,and fill gaping mouths of all the New Yorkers and Bostonians (still reading in horror) with delicious awesomeness.
I also tried the (im so looking at the menu photo to get this right) GRILLED EGGPLANT on Wheat bread with (surprise) grilled eggplant, onions, spinach, goat cheese, and tapenade. MMMMM (ok, my mouth is watering right now).
Oh im just going to show you the menu photo
Edna and Lucy’s menu is written on chalkboards that line the walls of their shop
(yes, I distorted the photo a bit to make it bigger).
BUT WAIT…THERE’S MORE…
Homemade desserts and pastries…and the are all fucking delicious!
OH YES, Homemade treats (remember the sign on the outside from the photo at the top?…)
Look at that…on the back of the table..
I don’t even like donuts…and those are AMAZING!!!!! (I had some for breakfast on another day). Fruit, Scones, Molasses Ginger Cookies,..
Oh, and look in the background. Oh yes,… that IS a refrigerator display for MORE TREATS! I had some delicious baklava (so good in my mouth)!
And the lady’s who work here are the cutest, sweetest people ever! I miss country life, just how nice everyone is, and how everyone knows everyone else. If you have grown up in the city you probably think im wicked naive, and the people here may scare you because you will be positive that no one is that nice or trusting; and the whole town is up to something…and I will feel sorry for you; because in the country, they are. (nice; not up to something). Unless you have grown up in farmland, you wont understand, so I wont try to explain further. If you have, you know what I mean, and probably miss the atmosphere right now too.
Hey, look at me totally getting off the topic of the food – you are thinking this right now – but this is about the the whole place; people, food, simplicity, all of it.
Now if you look at photo 2 again; there are 2 doorways (one you just see the frame of). Guess what’s behind those doors?
A DINING ROOM! OH yes, you can also sit down and eat here at Edna and Lucy’s Wicked Good Sandwiches & Treats Shop of Awesomness! (ok, so I lengthened the name a bit)
Inside Edna & Lucy’s. I love how the pastry/dessert table just calls to you
This is a bigger picture of what you walk into from the outside. Open, clean, lots of natural light and fresh air! And the ladies are right behind the counter cooking everything in front of you; joking it up with each other and you. And since I knew someone from the area…they already knew who I was when I walked in the door.
So if you are ever in Pownal, Maine…or Freeport, Maine (Pownal is next town up and Edna and Lucy’s is only about 15min from downtown Freeport)…
…Go to Edna and Lucy’s!…(aka Wicked Good Sandwiches)
