For our latest Food Adventure, Kristi & I found ourself on the coast in Rockland.

Nestled at the corner of Park & Maine streets is a breakfast/lunch place that in known the world over. It's called the Brass Compass Cafe. I have had breakfast there a before and enjoyed a wonderful Crab Cake Benedict. Kristi had never been so we decided to give it a go for lunch.

It's a great people watching location with seating outside if you desire, it was still a bit breezy this time of year so we opted for a booth inside.

If you are a fan of Food Network, you may know a chef by the name of Bobby Flay. Well Chef Flay was in town back in 2010 and presented the owner of the Brass Compass Cafe, Lynn Archer with a throwdown challenge.

Much to the surprise of many, and not so surprisingly to others, Lynn actually won the throwdown with "The King of Clubs" lobster club sandwich. Although it looks and sounds amazin neither Kristi or I were in the lobster mood so Kristi opted for the Crispy Chicken Wrap, and I went for the Spruce Headah, kinda of a take on rueben type sandwich. Both came with a side of fries.

We were both pleased with our choices, the portions were solid, and the service was excellent.

Next time you are in that corner of the world, make sure to stop by the Brass Compass Cafe and tell them Buzz & Kristi sent you!

Now, where should we eat next?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
