Midcoast Maine is home to many great eateries and specialty shops, talented artists, and unique businesses and
organizations. Here are some of our favorites.
Zoot Resident Artists
Friends and Neighbors
Gary's passion is glass plate photography, and his black and white portraits inevitably give the impression that, for
the briefest moment, you have glimpsed the raw essence of humanity. Gary's unique perspective will soon be captured in
a book for all to enjoy; stay tuned for a publishing date.
Penny's beads are like tiny worlds encapsulated in glass. Designed to be worn or hung in a window, her little pieces bring
joy to all who see and touch them. Penny's website
Simon van der Ven
Simon is an accomplished artist in just about any medium, but Zoot has the particular honor of being home to his pottery cups.
Sim's cups elevate the tea-drinking experience to a truly contemplative and aesthetic pursuit. Available for purchase at the cafe
Local writer and poet (and all around funny guy), Dave can be found reading from his latest volume summer nights at the cafe.
Exquisite, sincere cuisine with a Pan-Asian flair - right next door to Zoot. Fresh spring rolls (vegan!) are a must.
Bamboo Bike Studio
An innovative company with an eye toward sustainability, community, and empowering citizens of developing nations. Bamboo Bike Studio
was founded in Brooklyn, NY, but is now headquartered right here in Camden. We love the concept, love the mission, and LOVE the bikes!
Hope General Store
A great place to get a sandwich, or indispensible Scottish grocery items. What's small town life in Maine without a real general store?
