The very best breakfast diner in NH. Wonderful food always cooked to perfection. Wait service outstanding. My favorite is Dawn. Always cheerful. The whole staff is excellent.

Be prepared to meet local color at breakfast. Pancakes are awesome, coffee is all-you-can-drink, waitresses friendly. Try it if you can find a place to sit.

Tiny little cafe so may have to wait a bit. Serves that "home-cooked" tasting food rather than what is served in chain restaurants. Good sized portions. Menu has good selection. Attentive servers. Fair priced.

Had a very good lunch here (with homemade potato chips). Seems to be very popular with locals, as many people were greeted by name. Reasonable prices, cash only. Very small but I would definitely return.

Had a perfectly fine bacon-egg-cheese sandwich on an English muffin with home fries. Sat at the counter after flying into the ice runway looking for a warm respite. Nothing fancy, but nothing to complain about either.
