As soon as we touched down at Boston’s Logan Airport we took a shuttle over to the rental car place, hopped in the car and drove straight to Kittery, Maine to Lil’s Cafe. The Girl and I had been there twice before and I thought it would make the perfect first stop after the 5 hour red eye flight from Seattle to Boston.
The shop was bustling with locals, a few tourists and some workers on break from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. The line was about 5 people deep the entire time we were there but it moved quickly as everyone selected their pastries and announced their coffee orders.
The HH tried their Ham and Gruyere Croissant with a cup of coffee and said it did not disappoint.
I ordered a cruller. It’s what I’ve had all three times that I’ve eaten there.
Lil’s makes the best crullers on the planet. This time of year they are serving up their apple ginger crullers, which are amazing. Let me tell you Bob, they are worth the drive. Seriously. I have never had a better donut in my entire life. Although it was tempting to buy a few more for the road, I didn’t. I wanted to savor my one insanely delicious apple ginger cruller while I was in the shop with my cup of hot tea and just enjoy the moment.
I’ll be back, I know I will.
And when I go back… I’ll order another cruller. 😉
Simple, delicious food. You just can’t beat it.
