MarKel's Bakehouse (formerly Bah's) has been a landmark not to be missed in Castine. For over 20 years we have been well known as a unique, affordable spot to meet friends and take in the views of Castine Harbor from our deck while enjoying breakfast or lunch. Our bakehouse is known far and wide for its delicious breakfast pastries, quiche, gourmet sandwiches and casseroles, giant cookies, and amazing cakes and pies. We're also Castine's premier caterer, on or off premises, for groups from 4 to 400.


The regular business hours for the Bakehouse are 7:00am to 3:00pm 7 days a week from February through December (fall and spring hours are 7am-2pm Tuesday through Saturday). Catering, private functions and wedding cakes are available year-round.

MarKel's downstairs is our private dining room, event and catering center offering an eclectic menu with cutting edge cuisine, an extensive wine list, full bar and specialty cocktails. Available 7 days a week, MarKel's downstairs is the perfect spot to celebrate weddings, birthdays, graduations, or any special occasion. We also offer wine dinners and supper club events. Choose to sit by the wood-fired pizza oven or alfresco in the courtyard. Call for availability.
