We buy all our maple syrup from Benton's. When our kids were younger, we would go up to watch the sugaring in the spring. Steaming vats and wood fires and samples. The breakfasts are fantastic, When my son comes up to NH from Boston, that is where he wants his breakfast. I get hungry just thinking about it. They have... More

It's on a quiet road but a main road in that area. Obviously a place for the locals/regulars. The maple syrup is served warm and is made by the owners. Service was great and food was very good. I've had "lighter" pancakes, so I don't think the pancakes were all they were advertised to be, but the taste was good.... More

We ate here Sunday during the White Mountains Boogie and Blues Festival 2016. Fabulous food. I had the Fresh Maine Blueberry Pancake Platter with sausage links and home fries with onions. The service is friendly and quick. They sell their own maple syrup and hot sauce. This restaurant is run by the Bentons who also put on the Boogie and... More

We went there on the advice of TripAdvisor reviews and it didn't disappoint. We went on a Saturday morning and just beat the rush so were seated right away. We were quickly served good coffee and our order was taken. Although the wait for the food was quite long (20 minutes) when it arrived, it was worth the wait. I... More
