Other Eating Establishments....
 
What other places have been good for food this season? Anyone on "The Tamarack" Drive-in? Breakfast spots seem to be weak in the area.... I myself do not like to eat a 1 Egg Omlette, and would be embarrassed to serve one to a paying customer! :confused How about Lakeside and The Weirs Diner? Both these places are owned by the same people, and have alot of background in the business.

Kitchen Cravings and Union Diner are excellent for breakfast. Very different but both great food.

As far as a breakfast spot, Village Kitchen is pretty darn good. Get the farmers breakfast and you're good until dinner.

As far as the Tamarack goes, it's always good for lobster roll and burgers.

FlyingScot 07-27-2018 04:24 PM

Second on Village Kitchen for breakfast.

Also for breakfast: The Bridge Diner, Downtown Grille, and Yum Yum Shoppe--all in Wolfeboro; and Cup and Crumb in Moultonborough.

Our coffee cups runneth over!

kauriel 07-27-2018 04:27 PM

For breakfast we like George's (especially when they have red hash!) or for pancake breakfast we go to Heritage Farm. Both can get very busy so we don't go out for breakfast much on in the summer. Looking forward to eventually trying Trolley 27's waffle breakfast sandwiches but haven't made it yet. For dinner in the summer we like to go to less busy places like Phu Jee or George's (dinner) otherwise we get takeout from places like the Lakeside.

The French fries at Tamarack are the best Iíve had around the lake. Crispy.

In Bristol, try the Village Pizza, located on Route 3A, Lake Street. They have very good pizza, AND really good whole bellied fried clams during the summer season. Clam roll, clam basket or clam dinner. Excellent!

I use to get take-out at CountryCookinAtLakeside. The last time I went I purchased a turkey dinner. it was deli turkey, not a roasted turkey. I threw it out. I have not been back since.

Mr. V 07-28-2018 11:53 AM

I agree with the above post giving props to the Soda Shoppe in downtown Laconia.

It's a good place to get off the tourist path and hang with the locals.

We've only had breakfast there, but it's always been good, and reasonably priced.

I always ask before ordering turkey anything (hot sandwich, club, etc.) if they use sliced roast turkey or ďlunch meatĒ turkey....if itís lunch meat, I order something else.

Jeanzb1 07-28-2018 12:58 PM

We LOVE Mello Moose for breakfast sandwiches, quiches, and baked goodies! Quick and friendly staff and very cute atmosphere!

If heading down to Rochester for supplies be sure to stop in at the Farmer's Kitchen on Rt. 11 in Farmington for breakfast or lunch.

Chef and owner is part of the White family that ran / owned White's Restaurant / the Edgewood in Alton, now Post 72 American Legion in Alton.

Never a bad meal, always wonderful service, well with the short trip.

I didn't know that. Donald mows our lawn and I knew it was his brother but I didn't connect them to Edgewood. Donald is a really nice guy. I guess it's a week for small worlds, isn't it?

upthesaukee 07-29-2018 07:20 AM

Pretty sure they worked both

Another brother who worked the restaurant works for USPS, and is a member of our Masonic Lodge. He helps us in the kitchen and really hasn't lost his kitchen skills.

Back to the original post, sorry for the divergence. :rolleye1:

Kitchen Cravings and Village Kitchen are not the same. And Kichen Cravings is in Gilford.

You are, of course, right. Thanks for the correction.

LoveLakeLife 07-29-2018 02:43 PM

Iíve changed my mind on the best French fries. After lunch today I vote for the Surfside burger bar at the Weirs. The fries are lightly seasoned and extremely tasty. The hamburger was extremely good too.

Breakfast : Water St. Cafe or Georges

Lunch/Dinner: Ellacoya, Guisseppe's or 405

Woody38 08-04-2018 07:05 PM

We like

Water Street Cafe
Country Cooking across from Walmart. Had the Turkey and wasn't deli
Union Diner, food ok but the place is filthy
T-Bones is great and the rewards also helps
Lyons Den, probably best restaurant on the lake

Sawyer's, Yuck. But my wife likes clam strips although they are not so good lately.
Common Man, forget them all

I am a retired workaholic and continuing aquaholic

It always amazes me how different we all are when it comes to restaurants reviews.

For example I love t bones also but unlike you I enjoy the common man establishments, Union Diner is my favorite breakfast place along with Kitchen Cravings and in no way do I think Lyons Den is the best restaurant on the lake.

O, Canoe, Woodshed to me are all far better and I give honorable mention to Ellacoya one of my favorites and Bob House

I remember White's / Edgewood in Alton. :)

But where did Wolfeboro's White's Restaurant get its name? :look:

White's Restaurant later became Mast Landing, then became Wolfeborough Diner, and is now The Bridge Diner. :confused:

Someone will know...;)

Not me, but in the 64 school year we would go down to White's on Saturday morning for coffee and an English muffin. Mrs. Edwards was the waitress. Normally there were 4 of us and Mrs. Edwards treated us like one of her own.

Dave

tis 08-05-2018 05:00 AM

Because Dick White owned it. Didn't we have a discussion the other day on here about Dockside too? I don't remember that personally but somebody said on the Wolfeboro forum on FB that Dick White ran Dockside and they mentioned Dick Marden. I did remember then that Dick Marden was the manager when Phil Stevens managed it

mcdude 08-05-2018 06:38 AM

I admit that I haven't been for a while but I always enjoyed the Cider Press

Yes, class president if I remember correctly. Barely knew him, but was a good guy.
