Popovers and tea Jun 13, 2010
The Jordan Pond House is a vintage tea house which began as a farm around 1850, constructed by the Jordan family (for whom the pond is also named). Twenty years later the rise of tourism had already taken root and the building was converted into a restaurant, thriving until it was purchased by the Rockefeller family after WWII and donated to the National Park Service.

Today the Pond House makes for a splendid stop during your trip along the Loop Road circuit. The house is a gorgeous structure situated at one end of Jordan Pond with the stunning twin peaks of the Bubbles on the other end. You may dine inside or enjoy lawn seating right in front of the Bubbles. The grounds are wonderfully landscaped and there is both a gift shop and information center on site as well.

They open around 11:30AM, serving lunch, an afternoon tea and dinner. Noted for their popovers and strawberry jam, this is a great place to take a break during your hike as a lot of trails steer close to the pond house. The only downer is that the prices are steep, especially since most of the servers seem to be college students on summer break with little or no previous time waiting tables (the pond house is only open from mid-May through October). The servers are great fun, but my experience has been they are rather inept and it would be easier to forgive at more reasonable prices. Despite that minor complaint, dropping in at the Jordan Pond House is a delightful diversion and stopping for popovers and tea seems de rigueur to complete the Acadian experience.
