Caffe Prego – Ogunquit, ME

Work & Travel

Company Description and Location: 

According to legend, Ogunquit was named by the Abenaki tribe, because the word means “beautiful place by the sea”. Those of us who are fortunate to live, work or play here agree with this ancient assessment. We all have different reasons for finding Ogunquit beautiful – some love the salty-sweet scent of beach roses on sea breezes wafting along the Marginal Way walking path, some enjoy playing tag with the lapping incoming tide as the sand caresses their bare feet, while others enjoy the nostalgic village feel of strolling among quaint buildings, coves, and pedestrian bridges throughout town.

When you enter the inside of Caffé Prego, you will certainly notice our beautiful selection of Murano glass pieces, from hand-blown Murano glass Christmas trees to handmade decorative plates, to bottle stoppers and clown figurines. We have a stunning collection of Carnivale masks all made in Venice, Italy, handpicked by owners Jeff & Donato and imported here in the US.  We have named Caffé Prego after our wonderful golden retriever, Prego, who died in 2005. He was truly a wonderful companion and gave us so many wonderful moments of enjoyment.
