Been here several times for breakfast and always been happy with my meal. I've never had an egg not done the way I ordered. They have excellent omelettes, pancakes and french toasts. If your looking for good home cooking and meals.....Bessie's is the place to go!

Stopped in on the way home from hitting the "antique" sales. Packed house, smelled wonderful all the way from the street. Had the stuffed french toast, corned beef hash omelet and home fries..... The hash had no crispiness ( only lightly warmed before being folded into the omelette to be honest), lots of cheese and the eggs were cooked just... More

A wonderful surprise! We were very hesitant about going into this restaurant so I think the management may want to spend a few bucks to pretty up the exterior. But the inside was good and the food was fantastic! The menu was loaded with so many yummy selections. I had the cheeseburger club and it came with a mountain of... More

Bessies Lunch is a great low-key family or solo dinning experience that serves quality homemade meals at a very affordable price. I really love this place. I've had breakfast, lunch and dinners there many times and I keep on coming back. The food is served up fast by some very nice waitresses, some who've worked there for many many years.... More

From the moment we walked in greeting poor, if you were a local great. Coffee very weak. Our home fries overcooked those delivered to the locals looked good. Our bacon was severely overcooked. Those delivered to the locals good enough to steal. Omelets average??? With so many great eateries available will not be back here.

Stopped in to have dinner, and let me tell you I got a surprise! From the outside I was skeptical but the food, the waitress, and the chef/cook/owner/lawyer are fantastic!!! I have a severe allergy to shellfish and the waitress told me he that the cook will be right with me. Ron came out and was so accommodating. I told... More

Stopped in for breakfast. Omelet was very good, but no better than most breakfast joints. Service was good but not exceptional. Pricing was appropriate. Bessie's is located about three miles south of exit 7 of NH101. Plenty of parking in front. Table seating. No counter or booths. I would not hesitate to return to Bessie's, but I wouldn't go out...

Went for breakfast, the restaurant was busy and has been recommended. Server was nice but service was slow. Food was good but not great, on average with most breakfast places. Will not hurry to return
