Behind the Counter
Caite Maynard is a perfect example of what happens when experience meets passion.
Caite Maynard has worked in the food industry for over 40 years. She honed her baking abilities at Fiddlehead Farm Café where she was the assistant to the head pastry chef. Later, she joined Stone Soup in the Portland Public Market. While there, she crafted award winning soup (Best of Portland 1999 & 2005) and four star café fare.
In August of 2006, Caite became one of the owners of Stones Grove Restaurant in North Yarmouth. In 2007 the name was changed to Stones Café and was featured in the Community Leader as a great new eatery. Stones Café was also named in the top 50 places to eat in Maine by Down East Magazine, as well as receiving a 4 1/2 star review in the Portland Press Herald.
In 2013, Caite purchased Isabella’s Sticky Buns Café in Freeport, Maine. The new focus of Isabella’s is great attention to detail, fresh food and ingredients, and a superior customer experience.
