14 Maine St. , Mill 3, Fort Andross Mill, Brunswick, ME 04011, United States

The riverfront, monolithic brick Fort Andross Mill—which turned out countless bolts of cotton broadcloth in the 1800s and then for years stood derelict—has become one of the state’s great mixed-use spaces: antiques dealers, gallerists, and a new breed of restaurateurs all share the renovated building. Equal parts lofty café bistro and cinema, Frontier is the property’s shining star, with floor-to-20-foot-ceiling windows overlooking a rushing river, communal wood tables, and an artful homespun vibe. Sandwiches here arrive on slabs of slate, soup comes in hand-thrown ceramic bowls, and customers are expected to clear their own plates. The food is wholesome, fresh, and consistently satisfying; even the house salad with organic local greens, Parmesan, and homemade croutons and vinaigrette feels like a meal. Also worthy is the pastrami panini and cheese “market plate” (a tasty mix that includes local York Farm goat’s cheese, dried figs, and imported Belgian chocolate)—both pair nicely with a Sea Dog microbrew. And don’t miss the excellent, not-too-sweet gingersnap cookies for dessert.
