Ready to upgrade your lifestyle?  This boutique ocean view coffee shop just might be what you need!

 

Located in Lubec, ME, a beautiful, rural coastal town, this coffee shop features an ocean view that includes Campobello Island (summer home of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt).

 

Lubec is the easternmost point in the United States and is right on the Canadian border. As you would expect, they get a lot of tourist traffic in the season.  The year-round population is about 1,250, so you’ll find a quiet, rural lifestyle here.

 

The coffee shop offers all sorts of fancy (and basic) coffee, tea, baked goods, sandwiches, etc.  There are options for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free foods.

 

They also have a carefully curated selection of gifts, most of which are made in Maine.

 

The shop is licensed to serve wine by the glass or bottle and can easily expand that service to grow revenue, especially in the slower winter months.

 

The real estate includes a 2-bed apartment above the coffee shop that also features a magnificent ocean view.

 

The rural Maine lifestyle is a dream for many people.  With the one of the lowest crime rates in the country, a distinct lack of city traffic and hassle and plenty to do year-round.  Fishing, hiking, hunting, skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing, sightseeing – there’s something for everyone.
