Dining at the Franciscan Guest House
Due to restrictions, our continental buffet and other dining services have been suspended. We are in the process of creating a safe environment where we look forward to offering a modified food and beverage service in the near future.
In the tradition of the Lithuanian Franciscans, we invite you to enjoy our hotel buffets and hope you leave with a full stomach! We offer the breakfast buffet except for Thanksgiving and Easter Holiday weekends. We also offer dinner buffets on select evenings – call 207-967-4865 for more info.
For the free continental breakfast included with your stay, you will find many options starting with a choice of cereals. Then there is a wide assortment of breads that usually includes bagels, sliced breads for toast, and during the summer months there are often baked Lithuanian breads. Oatmeal is also included with various toppings provided.
For the full breakfast buffet which is offered for a small fee, often you will find hot and hard boiled eggs, sausages, pancakes or French Toast. During the peak season we often have Lithuanian pancakes (Blynai) with banana, ricotta cheese or apple fillings. During some weeks, homemade Lithuanian farmers cheese (Ukininku Suris) is also available.
To drink, we provide orange juice, ice water, coffee, tea, milk, and hot chocolate all included with your stay.
During the peak of summer, a buffet dinner will sometimes be offered to guests. Please inquire for details.
Our cooks make both American and Lithuanian dishes. Our American meals are basic but filling. In peak season, the homemade Lithuanian meals are made by our Lithuanian cooks. A typical dinner buffet may include a garden salad, soup, bread, meat entree, rice, pasta or a potato dish, one or two cooked vegetables and a light dessert.
Some of the Lithuanian dishes served during peak season include Cold Beet Soup (Saltibarsciai), Hot Beet Soup (Karsto Runkeliu Sriuba), and the national dish of Lithuania (Kugelis) which is a savory potato casserole. Occasionally stuffed cabbage will be one of the entrees.
Some American dishes that are served include lightly seasoned baked haddock, baked chicken, pork loin or pot roast.
Beverages often include iced tea, lemonade, water, coffee, tea, milk. A soda machine is available, or you may bring your own beverages to breakfast or dinner.
