Local, fresh and delicious for breakfast, lunch and dinner


Mt. Washington Valley: where every bite is comforting and every brew is made with passion

Summers in the Valley are a colorful montage of sensory experiences: the sight of majestic mountains, the sound of rushing rivers, and of course, the taste of delicious food! Spend a day sampling the Valley’s local flavors at some of our favorite hotspots for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Prisicilla’s Country Kitchen is a family-owned restaurant that serves breakfast all day.

Early Bird Delights

Start your day right with a delectable breakfast from one of our local eateries. Soak in the early morning sun on the patio at Sweet Maple Café or The Barn Restaurant at Merrill Farm Inn. Stop by Priscilla’s Country Kitchen, where you can order fresh-squeezed orange juice every day, as well as all the breakfast classics. Or, if you’re craving a fresh bagel with all your favorite toppings, make sure to pay a visit to Bagels Plus.


Moat Mountain Brewing Company offers a regular selection of beer year-round, as well as seasonal and limited-edition specialty batches.

A Savory Midday Break

After a morning of adventuring in the Valley, replenish your energy with a mouthwateringly satisfying lunch. For sandwiches and hamburgers containing a range of your favorite flavors, check out the award-winning J-Town Deli and Wicked Fresh Craft Burgers—the latter of which was featured on Food Network’s Chopped.


Delaney’s Hole in the Wall is another perfect choice, famous throughout town for its outstanding sushi and sandwiches. We also recommend going to Moat Mountain Smokehouse & Brewing Co., where you can order a savory burger (among several other options) or delicious smoked meats to pair with a local craft beer.


Elevated Dining in the Valley

At the end of a busy day, there’s nothing better than treating yourself to a dinner that’s—not merely tasty—but a kaleidoscope of nuanced flavors.

The Notch Grille specializes in North Country comfort foods, prepared with their own signature flare, as well as a variety of cocktails made with Notch Grille’s private label vodka from Tamworth Distilling.


Another incredible dining option is Wild Rose Restaurant at Stonehurst Manor, known for providing the freshest seafood from Maine’s coast and offering breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain vistas. Lastly, The Inn at Thorn Hill’s rotating menu is built around seasonally fresh ingredients, with each dish meticulously crafted to change the way you appreciate food.
