I have to tell you about this place - but honestly, you might not even believe me. It feels a little too good to be true. One of those places that you've sort of heard about, but ya know, you won't really believe it until you witness it.
It's not a mirage, it's MoMo's. A Cheesecake Shop that is open 24/7 that operates on an honor system. No, yeah, you read that right. You could go at 2AM and grab a slice of cheesecake, leave some cash in a jar, and never have to speak to anyone while you silently shovel the piece of cake into your mouth, alone, in your car.
I am not sure how many flavors there actually are - but I can tell you it felt like there were hundreds to choose from. From the traditional - strawberry, raspberry, lemon - to the completely unique: Almond Joy, Confetti, Pistachio. It was a cheesecake dream! We grabbed a bunch of prepackaged slices (you can also pick up an entire cheesecake), followed the honor system instructions, left cash...and we were off. They held up extremely well for a couple days in the fridge and we indulged 3 nights in a row (don't tell.)
If you are heading to Ellsworth, passing through Ellsworth on the way to Bar Harbor, have a craving for incredible cheesecake, all of the above....pop into MoMo's. And the best part of all? YOU CAN DO SO WHENEVER WORKS FOR YOU! Genius.
