New Hampshire

  • Tavern 27
    Location: Laconia, New Hampshire
    Type: Restaurant
    Details: Awesome atmosphere (so much live edge furniture) and tasty tapas!!! You must get reservations here if you are planning on dining to book your slot. This is a place for a really nice dinner with someone special.
  • Republic
    Location: Manchester, New Hampshire
    Type: Restaurant
    Details: A New England farm-to-table restaurant. Try the “Red Quinoa, Beet & Moroccan Spices” appetizers! It is so good that we always order extras!
  • Hilltop Cafe
    Location: Wilton, New Hampshire
    Type: Cafe
    Details:  It’s an actual farm!!! Total New Hampshire vibe inside and out plus really great food.
  • Nature’s Green Grocer
    Location: 374 Union St, Peterborough, NH 03458
    Type: Cafe/market
    Details: A grocery store with a small cafe in the back. Fantastic healthy sandwiches! And you can eat them by a little river out back. Be sure to stop and walk around the downtown – it is a very trendy and fun New England town.


  • Street & Co.
    Location: 33 Wharf Street, Portland, ME 04101 Portland, Maine
    Type: Restaurant
    Details: Amazing vintage period look and feel. Incredible food.
  • Stutzman’s Farm Stand & Bakery
    Location: 891 Douty Hill Rd Sangerville, Maine 04479 Sangerville, Maine
    Type: Farm Stand
    Website: Stutzmans Facebook
    Details: THE BEST PIZZA in New England (seriously!). Having traveling far and wide, making a bold statement such as this would really have to stand out to really actually be the best. But I think that Stutzman’s has done it!!! Do note – they are only open seasonally.
  • Carl’s Meat Market
    Location: 25 State Rd, Kittery, Maine 03904
    Type: Deli & Sandwich
    Website: Carl’s Meat Market Facebook
    Details: I would recommend the Grilled Steakhouse Chicken Sandwich! So good! They also have quite a selection of craft beers. Hot sandwiches! MMMmmmm…..


  • S&S Deli
    Location: Worcester, Massachusetts
    Type: Deli
    Details: Great place for a quick lunch stop in the center of Massachusetts! (We always go here on adventures through Worcester) They are famous for their unbelievably tasty Italian subs. I think I have narrowed it down to their imported provolone cheese and the herb oil dressing they use. Plus they have really amazing pastries for desert!
  • Mike’s Pastry
    Location: North End – Boston, Massachusetts
    Type: bakery
    Details: The iconic Mike’s Pastry. You want authentic Boston North End Italian desert, cookies, pastry, and cannolis? This is the place! Get ready to stand in a line that is more like a music concert crowd mass as you push your way aimlessly to get towards the counter. I recommend buying by the box full!
  • Umberto’s
    Location: North End – Boston, Massachusetts
    Type: Italian home-style food
    Details: The most affordable and best food around! Large portions and very tasty! This place was best for a college students diet and budget and is a great place for a lunch stop! Be aware they do sell out! So be sure to get there early.

This will be a running list that we update as we come across new places, so be sure to check back often. Have a place you recommend that we try which you think has the best food in New England? Please contact us here and let us know! We’d love to hear from you!
