TIQA Cafe and Bakery is located in the historic 1894 Castle in Deering Oaks Park. The dining experience imagined by owners Carol Mitchell and Deen Haleem is a casual cafe, where the food is simple yet rich with classic Mediterranean flavors.The menu is centered around the authentic Mediterranean fare made and served at their sister restaurant, TIQA Pan Mediterranean, which focuses on authentic cultural dishes of the region. Here in the park, guests are invited to enjoy themselves during all dayparts with Coffee By Design Coffee, freshly baked pastries and breads, sandwiches, salads, snacks and desserts. The Cafe is a spot for friends to gather to relax over glasses of wine and beer, or to meet for coffee in the morning. The cafe is surrounded by park- and picnic-inspired activities including bocce ball, horseshoes, outdoor chess tables and a little New England influence, bean bag toss, for even more variety.
The Castle has faithfully served the community and visitors to Portland, Maine, since 1894. Now it is TIQA’s turn, to treat guests to a warm, welcoming and relaxing atmosphere and dining experience.
