Plenty of fresh rock crabmeat is generously mixed with herbs, bread crumbs, and a bit of egg to form a sandwich-filling cake that stuns the palate with its layers of flavors. Maine’s crab cakes are a different animal (literally) from Maryland’s, and Riverside’s are a prime example.

    I strongly suggest the Maine Seafood Cakes at Azure’ Cafe in Freeport.
    Mixture of Maine Crab meat, scallops and shrimp.

    The best crabcakes ever are at the Green Street Cafe in Northampton MA–delicate and sweet. Check ahead; they are not always on the menu.
