Any visit to Castine would not be complete without a visit to MarKel's Bakehouse.  The Bakehouse is located at 26 Water Street, with an additional entrance off Main Street between Tarratine Gallery and Saltmeadow Properties.  It is easy to locate and a great spot to grab a bite while you visit Castine for business or pleasure.  There are always a wide variety of hot comfort food lunches that are healthy and delicious.  Enjoy our free WiFi while you dine or have an espresso with friends.  There is plenty of seating on our outdoor deck overlooking Castine Harbor with additional seating inside in our dining room.  MarKel's can help you break away from ordinary choices.  Made-to-order sandwiches and wraps, take-out dinners, a large selection of soups, fresh made salads, stews and chowders, homemade desserts and pastries...this is only the beginning of the Bakehouse menu.


MarKel's breakfast menu offers a variety of breakfast sandwiches and wraps. We are well known for our quiches with flavors changing daily.  We offer a variety of baked goods including muffins, cinnamon buns, coffee cakes, sweet breads, turnovers, and croissants.  Breakfast-to-order is available September through June.  Specialty items like corned beef hash or Scotch eggs are not to be missed and fresh fruit salad is available during summer months.


At MarKel's you can choose from many sandwiches and salads.  Chowders, soups and chilis are offered by the cup or bowl.  Casseroles of all kinds are ready for lunch, for you to take home or back to your boat for dinner.  Our wine and beer selection changes regularly but we always have an assortment of fine wines by the glass or bottle and beer for consumption on premise.  We offer a wide range of full luncheons for your next outing or meeting and are happy to customize a menu just for you.

Delivery is available to visiting boaters or "on-neck" in Castine.
