RECENT EVENTS

  • Friday Night Coffee House. Our inaugural event was a success and we plan to do more! Friday Pie Club dove right into the action with their delicious savory and sweet pies and John Williams grilled Pretzel Fretzel in subfreezing temps... Kids played games and watched James and the Giant Peach downstairs, teenagers ran around all over the place, and adults enjoyed music and good company. Thanks for the great idea, Barbara Ann! 2/6/2015

WELCOME TO FRIDAY PIE CLUB!
Looking for the most amazing cup of coffee, delicious sweet and savory goods, and a place to work, play and hang out?

317 Cafe is now Friday Pie Club and will open during some morning hours to the public in addition to the regular afternoon shift.

 

Friday Pie Club is already very familiar with 317 Main - it has been filling the space with the insanely irresistible smell of pies from the commercial kitchen in the basement of the building. This move will allow Friday Pie Club an opportunity to expand their business while continuing to serve their customers AND 317 and the community at large.

 

Please stop by to welcome Friday Pie Club owners Charles Fischman and Meghan Fennell and dig in to the mouth-watering baked goods and try the wicked good handcrafted coffee from Big Barn Coffee in Wiscasset, Maine. Bring your friends!

 

Marie at the front desk will refund any credit you may have had with 317 Cafe. Friday Pie Club accepts cash, credit cards, and preloaded gift cards that you can choose to leave for your family members (similar to what we had done at 317 Cafe) with Charles and Meghan.

 

Friday Pie Club will expand the hours as the shop grows. For now the hours are: M - 2:30-5:30; Tu-Fri 9-12:30 & 2:30-5:30.

 

Grand opening celebration TBA! Cheers!

 

Free wifi in the cafe is provided by 317 Main.
