"Food is love" is one of the mottos of Leanne Cusimano, who bustles around the eatery, forging a menu designed to convey that warmth. The scents of breakfasts snapping against skillets drift from Amore Breakfast’s sand-hued cottage exterior, which conceals the gleefully mismatched tables and checkerboard accents of a '50s diner. Servers tote thick slices of french toast stuffed with cream cheese or topped with berries and fluffy omelets enfolding veggies, meats, and cheeses. Wreaths of steam from cups of the house blend coffee encircle them as they bear trays to the dining area, where patrons marvel at spotting a toaster’s face in slices of toast.

York's sandy beaches and iconic rocky shores make it an idyllic walking town. The Nubble Lighthouse, a 1.5-mile stroll east of the hotel, ascends from a small, rocky island off the northeastern shore of Cape Neddick. This red-roofed landmark, encased by a cast iron shell, flashes a red beacon every six seconds to remind seafarers to call their mothers. Continuing along the coast, visitors traverse the Cliff Walk, a trail lined by wildflowers and set against a dramatic backdrop of the rugged Atlantic shore. Stationed an 8-minute drive from the hotel, York Harbor and York Village charm travelers with historical buildings and quaint New England cafés. This quiet shopping district houses the Museums of Old York, a collection of nine historical sites including Old Gaol, a former 18th-century prison outfitted with cells and dungeons, and the Emerson-Wilcox House, which displays 12 period room settings and two antique galleries.
For three generations, the Bartley family has been serving a taste-bud-tempting menu of fresh seafood, succulent steaks, and farmers' market vegetables in its neighborhood eatery along the river. Begin your gastronomic safari with a glass of Cakebread wine ($12–$19) and creamy bowl of New England clam chowder ($7.95). For entrees, quell stomach uprisings with the house specialty, a déjà-vu-inducing baked lobster (market price) stuffed with 4 ounces of lobster meat, or sink a mouthful of curious chiclets into Eduardo's 10-ounce filet mignon, crowned with a lobster tail and hollandaise sauce ($29.95). Nibble a slice of Mrs. B's homemade blueberry pie ($6.95) next to the eatery's roaring fireplace and reminisce about the time you escaped the debilitating hugs of a spiritless motivational speaker.
Alisson's patrons engage in casual dining with a menu of lunch and dinner dishes culled from the sea's tummy-rumbling depths and the meadow's succulent stretches.

Snagging its name from one of the schooners built in Kennebunk's adjacent 19th-century shipyards, Federal Jack's makes its own mark by pairing creative pub fare with flavorful ales brewed in-house. Taste buds set sail on their own toothsome odyssey with an appetizer of fried calamari ($8.95) and house favorites such as the Fiery Volcano burger, whose fearsome flow of hellfire relish is capped with a ground beef, turkey, or veggie burger and a sunny-side-up egg ($9.95). Smooth seas await restricted dieters—including vegetarians, gluten-avoiders, and the sugar-suspicious—with several modifiable options and menu staples, such as the hummus sandwich ($7.95) and the spinach, ricotta, and red-pepper-layered eggplant milanese ($13.95). Diners can quickly win a stare-down or guess the poker hand of the hot open-faced turkey, an autumnal treat served atop stuffing bread and dressed with cranberry sauce ($9.95).
