Whenever I hear Skowhegan’s Pickup Cafe mentioned, I smile. The thought of a cafe that opens its garage door side wall to a wonderful patio and pergola in the summer, then closes those same doors to provide a unique cozy space when the weather turns chilly, is true Maine. The farm to table movement is at the forefront and is the driving force behind this restaurant. The wall listing over 50 farms and local suppliers says it all. You know that freshness and quality ingredients matter here. Adam and Rosa Rosario do a superb job here.
And here’s some really good news. The Pickup Cafe just started serving lunch during the week, Wednesday through Friday. It didn't take us long after hearing this to set up a time to visit. They still serve dinners on Friday and Saturday nights and brunch from 7 - 2 on the weekends.
