Where to eat in Meredith, new Hampshire: A guide to the best restaurants

eating is an elemental part of travel that connects us firsthand back to whatever part of the earth we may be visiting. It’s a tip three or a lot more times a day about where we come from and what powers us to explore the world, as well as a direct connection to the particular place we’ve travelled to.

I recently took pleasure in a weekend summer holiday in beautiful new Hampshire and while I was there, I sampled a lot of delicious foods and ate at lots of great restaurants.

I chose to do a road trip from Vermont, but if you don’t have a car, or if you like to travel by bus and train, you can check out GoTicket.io for lovely transport routes all over the US, including lots of that pass through the excellent state of new Hampshire.

In new Hampshire, I was inspired to see how many local, fresh ingredients were available! Food is such an crucial lens to understanding a place.

How food is both presented and consumed reveals a lot about a destination’s traditions and customs. When we eat food that is locally grown, it’s also a way of tapping directly into the local economy and culture.

Meredith is a small town, but it has a lively food scene and people here are passionate about what they put on their plate. Here are a few of my much-loved places from my travels around the town Meredith. may you eat well and be nourished, wherever you go.

Where to eat breakfast in Meredith:

Sunshine Pa’s

This place is a local gem. It’s the kind of place you walk inside and you can just feel how much the locals love it here, not to mention all of the visitors that unavoidably come through their doors. It’s reasonably priced and breakfast starts for as little as just a few dollars.

You probably couldn’t spend a lot more than ten dollars, even if you were trying really hard to.

During my visit, the servers were all incredibly friendly and smiley and they seemed kicked back and happy, which in my opinion, is the greatest judge of any business.

Sunshine Pa’s uses your normal breakfast / diner fare: eggs, pancakes, waffles, etc. The coffee was just okay, so I’d absolutely recommend going for espresso or a latte if strong coffee is really crucial to you.

Waterfall Café

The waterfall Café is located inside the Inn at Mills’ fall Marketplace. It’s a little a lot more polished of an atmosphere, but the servers are also very friendly and the waitress even used some suggestions on local hikes in the area. people tend to be friendly, so just reach out and ask if you have any questions.

The menu using was similar. They serve breakfast and lunch and they’re only open until 2:00 in the afternoon.

Where to eat Lunch in Meredith:

Lakeside Deli and Grille

This is another local favourite. They have all kinds of sandwich offerings as well as some salads.

The salad was fresh and filling. I didn’t find it particularly original, but often that’s best when it pertains to a classic sandwich place. They have indoor and outdoor seating, plus tons of local beers on tap if you come here later in the day, maybe after a hike or an outdoor excursion?

If you come here on a great day, you can take advantage of the lake view from their deck or picnic table seating area on the front lawn.

Hakuna Mata Café

This café and lounge is also ideal in the center of town. As you may be realizing by now, nothing is very far in Meredith.

They focus on using organic and locally sourced food in their recipes.

I had a Buddha bowl which consisted of a brown rice base, topped with kale (they were out of zucchini noodles), slivered carrots, diced tomatoes, and a ginger dressing.

They have a few different “Soul Bowls” plus wraps and an espresso bar. I would go here again for the good vibes and complimentary wifi if you need to get connected. There’s also a great front deck area where you can people enjoy on a warm day.

Where to eat dinner in Meredith:

Local eatery Laconia

I had to make about a 15 minute drive for this place, but it was well-worth the visit to the neighbouring town of Laconia. The local eatery focuses on delivering farm-fresh food straight from local farms as part of the farm to table movement that has been steadily growing in the north-east.

Itfirst opened in 2007 and has been growing ever since. They were busy even on a Tuesday which is a testament to how popular they’ve become. call ahead for reservations, especially if you’re there over the weekend.

I had a flavorful noodle bowl. plus the noodles are all made in-house. They change their menu every two weeks, keeping everything in-season.

Address: 21 veterans Square, Laconia

Giuseppe’s Pizzeria-Ristorante

Giuseppe’s is a lively place and they have local musicians performing practically every night. The food is home style Italian and the portions are huge, even by American standards.

I bought the entrée special which was an exceptionally rich shrimp risotto topped with feta cheese. It was an original take on a classic Italian dish. They also have a variety of pizzas in different sizes, as well as your normal pasta plates.

Where to choose a drink in Meredith:

Hermit woods Winery

Hermit woods is a special place in Meredith. The space they’ve opened up for white wine tastings is airy and brightly lit, showcasing all of their special local wines.

Ken, one of the owners, spoke to me about the story of the place and how he had worked with two of his buddies to create original and very local wines out of a special combination of ingredients found in the surrounding woods.

Ken with two of his friends had always loved brewing beer, but eventually started making wines as well. From the beginning, they’ve only used fresh, local, hand-picked ingredients like blueberries, elderberries and rose hips, or even crab apples they had happened upon (which was how they finally made one of their a lot of popular wines, the 2015 Heirloom Crabapple).

New Hampshire’s climate is too cold for grapes to grow, so fruit wines are the natural alternative.

They had grown their home operation to its capacity, so finally the three of them made a decision that opening a winery would be the best way to keep their marriages intact, and their operation fully legal.

Info: $20 for a tasting and tour. excursions are available on the weekend, on the hour, every hour from 11-5. You can walk in for a tasting any time they’re open.
