On our recent trip to New England, we discovered a McDonalds in Freeport, Maine. And I tell you that it is the most beautiful McDonalds I've ever seen. And I've seen a LOT of McDonalds buildings in my day. I've seen the one with the two-level play area and arcade, I've seen the old-fashioned ones with the original golden arches...but this one. Oh my!
It had very little of the traditional franchise McD's that you usually see, and instead had an antique Victorian or Colonial feel. I've literally never had so much fun ordering a McCafe Caramel Cappuccino and sipping it as I did that morning!
The above picture is from the backside of the building. You can see the drive though window if you look closely.
Look at the McDonalds sign above the door!
I figure the unique look of this McDonalds must have something to do with the covenants in Freeport, although I have no idea what those are. The town of Freeport is where the L.L. Bean retailer originated, so that's what they are best known for. But to be quite honest, I was more impressed with the McDonalds than the L.L. Bean store. LOL.
And this was the front side entrance. The white pillars, the trim, everything was gorgeous! I was all heart-eye-emojis as I walked inside wondering if the inside would be consistent with the exterior. Guess what? It was!
That round table in front of the fireplace is where we sat to enjoy our coffee and fries. Because who goes to McDonalds and doesn't get some fries, right?
Let me tell you, if I lived near here, this would be a great writing spot.
