Figured I'd add something new to the board. Spent 4 nites in North Conway in March and have come to really like that town. Here are the stops, trying to keep it brief (but that's impossible for me).

Little Miss Sophie's, Rochester NH: Split a bkfst on the way up: homemade hash, two over medium eggs, hash browns and one blueberry pancake. Super nice but the hash (good) and hash browns weren't extra crispy as requested and the center of the pancake wasn't cooked thru. She was apologetic and ready to fix it but we were full. That said, I'd give them another shot. Went into town for good iced coffee at Fallen Leaf and a stop at the record store.

Deacon St: Hit Deacon St. for happy hour for my third time. Drink prices for well booze are reduced so I went with a salty dog, M got an Irish Mule since it was St. Patty's Day (not discounted but maybe $9) and we split zucchini fries ($8.95), a very large and tasty order. Nice service and I like that place so bought a t-shirt (tho our attempt to eat dinner there on Sat. wasn't successful in many respects).

Flatbread Pizza: We were staying at Eastern Slope and wanted to watch a live music thing online so we just got a small sausage pizza w/ caramelized onions to eat in. Good, not great.

Old Village Bakery: Was up early so walked over here for a great blackberry scone, how did I miss this place on past trips? This is what a bakery should look like, lots of home baked goodness.

302 West Smokehouse, Fryeburg ME: Drove over to Fryeburg to switch things up and the bbq here was quite tasty. Split a pulled pork sandwich with fries & cole slaw, M. got a local brew, good service, well priced.

Fair Grounds, Fryeburg: Small cafe on the corner only doing take away where I got an iced coffee and the oddly named 'nuns farts', basically a sticky bun w/ maple syrup (it's a Canadian thing).

Cathedral Ledge Distillery: After some outlet shopping, we got back to the hotel and walked over to split a tasting of 7 liquors, everything they offer right now. I wasn't thrilled with most of them but the vodka was good and I LOVED the gin, strong flavors of cardamom which made me happy.

Black Cap Grill: Have loved this place my previous two visits and nothing changed this time. We had to wait about 30 min after putting our name online, then maybe 10 more min as two bar seats were cleaned off. Loved the host, their bartenders and the menu. Had every intention of just splitting a couple apps but the woman next to me had the fish special that looked too good to pass up. A halibut type whitefish with potato and asparagus for about $27, delicious. And we did split the amazing plump mussels and grilled Caesar salad too, all excellent along with beers and a cocktail.

White Mtn Cider Co: Got the cider donuts at this place in Glen along with a ham & cheese handpie. Very good, not the most friendly folks.

Stonehurst Manor/Library Lounge: After a fiasco trying to hike, came back, spiffed up and were able to sit right down in the Lounge at Stonehurst Manor. We split scallops in bacon and a steak and cheese dumpling type app along with Manhattans bigger than your head about $12). Very relaxing and nice service.

Chef’s Bistro: We were able to grab a couple seats at the bar for good drinks and amazing Thai duck wings ($13.50) and maybe one other app, perhaps pork belly tacos? I like that place.

Omni Resort: We took the gondola to the top of Bretton Woods then got a beer and charcuterie plate in the pretty bright circular lounge at the Omni. Felt very fancy sitting there (not sure what that room is called). Good service and not over-priced considering the location and view.

Bangkok Café: This was a last resort kind of thing because North Conway was JAMMED Sat. nite. We'd been able to walk right in everywhere so I figured one of the places we wanted to go (Deacon, Merlino's, Mary Kelly's, Black Cap, Chef's Bistro) would have something but impossible, esp. with reduced seating and earlier hours. Takeout was okay but sure not how I expected to spend the last nite in town.

Leavitt's Bakery: Got a couple treats which were good, but no Old Village.

Smuttlabs: Dover NH: Decided on this spot for food on the way back to Boston since the menu had stuff we liked, was well priced and was bright and airy on a gorgeous day. The burger and fried chicken sandwiches (both w/ waffle fries) were excellent, about $12 each and I enjoyed the coffee brown ale
