A stone’s throw from the water, Shade restaurant at the Higgins Beach Inn provides diners with more than a great view from its three-season porch and a comfortable, casual atmosphere. It also offers seasonally fresh cuisine, rejuvenating cocktails and the best of local brews. Seven days a week, you can stop in for late-afternoon appetizers like the smoked local seafood platter and enjoy dinner selections from shellfish stew to the stuffed Maine lobster roll. Save room for dessert: The summer menu features blueberry cheesecake. Afterward, watch the sun set over the Atlantic or take a stroll along the white-sand beach. And don’t forget breakfast: How about cinnamon French toast or fluffy buttermilk pancakes with Maine maple syrup?
