A Taste of Summer

A tradition of creating happy memories and “The Taste of Summer” since 1896! Every year since that first year in May, in the heart of York Beach Maine, The Goldenrod starts to buzz with excitement! The candy makers once again prepare to open for another season of creating those famous salt water taffy “Kisses”, out-of-this-world fudge, mouthwatering chocolate bark, delicious brittle, irresistible caramel corn and so many other candies and confections. Join us in our classic New England dining room for a delectable breakfast, lunch or dinner and enjoy the ambiance of the heavy beamed ceilings, oak tables and stone fireplace. Join the timeless tradition of strolling in off the beach and pulling up a stool at The Goldenrod’s antique marble soda fountain for an irresistible hot fudge sundae or creamy ice cream soda. Choose from over 135 flavors of our homemade ice cream or perhaps a Lime Rickey. Enjoy the buzz of summer friends meeting to share experiences and many happy memories. Take a walk along the Atlantic Ocean, then come into The Goldenrod and step back in time to the taste and home-cooking aromas of old New England. Join in the tradition! Experience “The Taste of Summer” at The Goldenrod.
