Contemporary cuisine in a friendly, picturesque setting...

Old Post Office Cafe Mount Vernon Maine

The Olde Post Office Cafe is many things to many people. For some, it’s a hub of community life; a place to meet friends and neighbors and catch up over a good cup of locally-roasted coffee and a piece of our house-baked pastry. For others, it’s their haven for good food, be it breakfast, lunch, dinner or a take-out meal on the run. And for still others, the cafe, perched on the edge of Lake Minnehonk in Mount Vernon Village, has become a destination; word spreads about our commitment to use the freshest ingredients - locally sourced whenever possible – for our menu of creative, contemporary cooking. And now, with our new wine and beer service, the Cafe will be a place to taste the best micro-brewed craft beers and hard ciders Maine has to offer, and sample a changing menu of affordable wines from around the world, served by the glass or carafe.

For me, the Cafe is a labor of love. I love good food and I love preparing and sharing it. That the tastes we create resonate with our patrons is my reward. But I don’t do it alone. My wife and co-owner, Vicki, our CFO, handles all our business affairs leaving me free to focus on the food. And Sarah Chiasson, our chef/manager, inspires the kitchen with her insight, talent and aesthetics. She is a gifted cook and baker with an innate ability to create new and exciting menus that put us at the forefront of the central Maine dining scene. Together, we are joined by a dedicated team of cooks, servers and kitchen support staff who share in our mission of providing a unique dining experience.

If you are among our regular patrons, we thank you for your continued support. After all, it takes a village to ‘raise’ a cafe. And if you are visiting us for the first time, please take a moment to introduce yourself when you come. We’re always glad to see new faces.

Our chefs focus on using the freshest seasonal ingredients to craft specialty dishes that change every music night, bringing patrons a variety of tastes that span the globe, served in a casual, lakeside atmosphere. A changing menu of affordable wines from around the world have been selected to pair well with our food, and we offer a variety of the best micro-brew craft beers and hard ciders made in Maine.

The music, too, spans the spectrum from folk to jazz to old-time rock and roll played throughout the dinner service. And you can linger over our sumptuous desserts and fresh-brewed espresso drinks enjoying the sounds and the company of friends in a warm and intimate setting.
