Pat's Pizza of Presque Isle

We Deliver!


C.D. "Pat" Farnsworth opened Farnsworth's Cafe in

Orono, Maine in July 1931. Pat's dream was backed by

$175.00, long hours and hard work. Because of his

efforts, Pat saw the cafe, which originally sold ice cream

and confections, become a full service restaurant. In

1953 Pat added pizza to his menu. The fresh dough

pizza, topped with a special sauce developed by Pat

and his wife Fran, were an instant success. Pat's

change in the menu transformed Farnsworth Cafe into

Pat's Pizza. Over the years Pat's Pizza has become a

favorite of University of Maine students. In fact, it has

been said that an education at the University is not

complete without a Pat's Pizza. Today, Pat's Pizza is

enjoyed not only in Orono, but also in Newport, Augusta,

Auburn,Yarmouth, Sanford, Scarborough, North

Windham, Ellsworth, Lincoln, Hampden, Bethel,

Presque Isle, Sanford, and our newest location in the

Old Port of Portland Maine. All of Pat's Pizza

Restaurants offer friendly, casual and affordable dining

for the entire family.

Pat Farnsworth passed away on February 3, 2003 at the

age of 90. His work ethic and philosophies live on in

each location.
