About Us

Our Chef and Staff

In July 1931, "Pat" Farnsworth opened Farnsworth's Café serving ice cream and confections to the residents of Orono, Maine. By 1953 Pat evolved into a full-service restaurant and added the now-famous pizza to his menu. The fresh dough, made with a special sauce developed by Pat and his wife, Fran, was an instant success. It was this "simple" change that transformed Farnsworth's Café into "Pats's Pizza"


With Now 17 locations and counting across Maine, including locations in Augusta, Bethel, Ellsworth, Hampden, Lincoln, Newport, North Windham, Scarborough, Yarmouth, Brunswick, now in the historic "Old Port"
