When Nona Boyink suggested we write a travel column about Maine General Hospital’s cafeteria, I was incredulous. “People don’t go to the hospital to dine, do they?” I asked. “Yes they do!” Nona exclaimed.
And she was right. In the last two months, I’ve had occasion to eat breakfast at the hospital twice. The first time I had a wonderful omelet with bacon and cheese, a bagel with cream cheese, and coffee, for $5.02. Yup. Just $5.02.
So now you know why the hospital has become my breakfast place! I’m cheap, and so’s the food here. But cheap isn’t enough to draw a crowd, and I have to say, I’ve been very surprised by the quality of the food served here.
