The Fish Net ([tel] 207/374-5240), at the north end of Main Street (near the junction of routes 172 and 177), is the place where locals go for quick meals of takeout fried fish, lobster rolls, clam baskets, and ice-cream cones. It’s open seasonally—figure mid-April to Columbus Day, at most. If it’s a sweet fix you’re after, Black Dinah Chocolatiers ([tel] 207/374-2228), at 5 Main Street (which they share with a terrific florist), makes unparalleled, fancy little chocolates—pear and champagne truffles, peanut butter–filled frogs, choc-covered sea salt caramels. Their tasting room (open Monday through Saturday 8:30am to 5pm, Sunday 11am to 4pm) has a vintage soda-fountain counter where you can sit and sample with an espresso—or a mug of sipping chocolate.
