Ice cream, watermelon, milkshakes, peach pie?

Though we live quite a bit away from Maine, we’re lucky enough to get lobster rolls in the summer at Darwin’s.

These lobster rolls taste fresh, light and delicious.

The lightly  dressed lobster is tossed with herbed mayo and celery and sits on top of a  toasted hoagie bun brushed with garlic butter.

Even this bun was delicious and buttery.

I'll have an extra toasted roll with my lobster, please.

What could be better on a sunny day?

cool, creamy and delicious
