Food Scene
Great New American Restaurant with separate area for the pub. The stuffed mushrooms are delicious and you can't go wrong with the House Rib Eye. Very popular with the Weathervane Theatre crowd and packed before each show. Call ahead or if you don't have tickets get there after curtain call at 8 pm. Definitely a summer scene.

On your way to Franconia Notch State Park? Coffee here will get you ready! My go-to coffee shop but they are much more. Breakfast and lunch, completely vegetarian selection, fresh baked goods, smoothies, and full coffee shop offerings. Seating is more like a living room and always changing the art on the walls from local artists keeps it interesting. Free WIFI, chill music, terrace seating. Great prices!

They come to you! Excellent original menu items served at the house by the professional team of the chef and wait staff. They can do a cocktail hour with hors d'oeuvres and sit down dinners. We chose two entrees: The roast duck with cherry sauce is my favorite while others like the beef medallions best! Perfect for hosting a dinner party. Also run a Restaurant in Franconia about 30 min away.

North of the notch we have a great selection of lively breweries and taprooms. Here are some of my favorites! Most have live music so check the schedule on their websites.
Amazing European inspired beers brewed in small batches and mostly just sold at the brewery. Love a fresh beer paired with a wood-fired Neopolitan-style pizza makes for a great experience.

Parks & Nature
Franconia Notch can be enjoyed in every season for it's breath taking beauty and year round activities. Skiing on Cannon Mt is legendary. Tramway access and hiking trails to the top during Spring Summer and Fall. The notch also has one of my favorite hikes, Lincoln and Lafayette, both 4000 footers and plan on sore legs. Echo Lake Beach is like no other setting for summer lounging and relaxing with family. Least I leave out Hiking to Lonesome lake, the Flume or the basin. And finally, there leisurely bike ride from the top to the bottom is a great way to explore the whole area in a day.
