This seasonal takeout shack, festooned in farm implements and plunked down on a piece of rock practically atop a Cape Elizabeth lighthouse, is one of my favorite places to direct the new-to-Maine tourist. Yes, it’s touristy. But it’s been here forever; locals aren’t shy about heading out here for a bite; and you absolutely cannot beat the views. You’re looking at a panorama of the Atlantic while you wait for the kitchen to cook you pre-cracked, steamed lobsters (order a platter, with coleslaw and blueberry cake included). You can also get clams. Eat in the homey dining room or out on the picnic tables, which are set right out there on the open rocks; troll through the gift shop next door; and don’t forget to try or take home a whoopie pie for dessert.
