Welcome to the Cliff Island Store & Cafe website

We are a small store on Cliff Island in Casco Bay, Maine.  Cliff Island is part of the city of Portland, Maine but miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city.  We have a year-round population of approximately 50 people but in the summer the population grows to over 400.  Cliff Island is the only year-round inhabited island in Casco Bay with no paved roads. 

Although there are no hotels on Cliff Island, there are many homes available for weekly rentals or longer.  There are no public services, residents enjoy a community hall, a tennis court, baseball field, and playground.  The residents are served by a USPS Post Office, fire department, and a one-room school for elementary grades. 

If you take the Casco Baylines ferry, we are the last stop on the route.  We hope you will stop by for an ice cream, a hot coffee or tea, a soda, water or beer, wine, snacks, a sandwich, burger or hot dog, to purchase a sourvenir or two or just to say HI!
Cliff Island Store
