How about a suggestion for lunch during the week?
Anything for a Chowhound like me?

  1. A colleague of mine recently posted this rave about the "Daily Toast."

      Thanks!, I've been wanting to try this place... I usually go to the Stockpot when driving through, but I was intrigued by the friendly toast place.. Must be the cool interior design!.

        Two notes. It's actually the Friendly Toast, not the Daily Toast. Good food, but you must be very very hungry.
        A good experience if you're on the go: Emilio's on Daniel Street. Best kept secret in Portsmouth. He's only open when he feels like it, but it's worth keeping an eye out for his sign to say "Sorry, We're Open" He's to the right of Cafe Kilim, across from the post office. He and his wife make everything, plus if you need any Italian groceries, he's the only game in town. Seriously. You won't be disappointed.

      2. I "second" the vote for Stockpot. I usually take a run to Captain Simeon's in Kittery when I'm in Portsmouth/Kittery. Weather and time precluded that this past August, and the Stockpot recommendation was perfect! Casual cafe atmosphere is comfortable, and the food is really good, fresh and a nice combination of bar food with more general restaurant-type fare.
