Friday night fish fry at The Bagg Lunch

There is nothing better than finding a local restaurant where simple but home cooked foods wait. And so it is with the The Bagg Lunch, a small business located in on Mast Road in Goffstown. Here you will instantly know that this is a family affair. With recipes used from years ago, our waitress (whom I believe is the owner) explains that it’s food that her late father used to enjoy. Her niece is the pastry chef. Having heard on a prior breakfast visit about their Friday night fish special this was our time to check it out.

Our take on Guy Fieri's visit to Tuckaway Tavern

The Tuckaway Tavern in Raymond was recently featured on an episode of Diners Drive-ins and Dives. We occasionally watch this show featuring Guy Fieri visiting restaurants that are many times in unusual locations all over the US. Since they are just down the road, we decided to head for Raymond to discover for ourselves if Guy was right about the grub.

Aroma Joe's continuing to expand in NH and Maine

While driving around this summer, I couldn't help but notice all the Aroma Joe’s everywhere we went. This coffee chain has been building new stores all over the place and they now have somewhere between 40 and 50 locations with the most recent opening in Greenland, NH. To give you an idea of the layout, these are small drive through and walk up stores. Because of this they can be constructed faster which gives them a competitive advantage. One had also gone up in Hooksett and that was my stop to sample their coffee.

New bistro a welcome addition to Applecrest Farm

With the fall weather here and beautiful scenery everywhere you look, we decided to revisit Applecrest Farm in Hampton Falls. Back in September 2015, we enjoyed one of their harvest festivals which featured music, food, apple picking and more fun fall activities for all ages. When we arrived we were greeted with a noticeable addition, a large new building. We walked over as quickly as our legs would take us to find out what was inside.

Polly's Pancake Parlor improves after renovations

It’s been a couple of years since our last visit to Polly's Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill. We decided that too much time had passed and headed to Polly’s to enjoy both the breakfast and some of the best foliage we’ve had in years.

Take a break from leaf peeping at Moat Mountain Smokehouse & Brewery

With leaf peeping around the corner many tourists will be wondering where to go for decent food in the North Country. We attempted to visit Moat Mountain Smokehouse and Brewery in North Conway last fall and as we were walking into the entrance we were told that their computer system was down which meant no cash registers and no electronic orders for the kitchen. Needless to say they closed for the day. So, we decided to try it again a few weeks ago.

Artistry on the Green our best restaurant of the year

When my wife was searching for a nice restaurant to take her parents for their anniversary, she came upon Artistry on the Green. Located inside the Inn at Hastings Park this jewel is a venue that many of you are probably unfamiliar with in Lexington, Massachusetts. Only a half hour from the New Hampshire border this one is definitely worth a short drive.
