Littleton Diner, NH?

Science Chick Jul 12, 2006 03:17 AM

Traveling north through Vermont/NH this weekend and came across the Littleton Diner on the web. Was considering them for breakfast, as they boast pancakes made from locally milled, organic whole grains. Any opinions would be much appreciated...thanks!

    REPORT:
    Had two small meals there.

    Definitely agree about the french fries....amazing, non-greasy and very crisp hand cut. A salad served with a Newman's pouch of dressing was unremarkable (very fresh romaine, at least) and a "homemade" clam chowder tasted straight out of the can. Apple crisp served ice cold, but was tasty.

    Breakfast: Pancakes decent. Both whole wheat and buckwheat well executed. However, the blueberries we requested in the 'cakes were sparse, as was the small bottle of maple syrup served. If you wanted more syrup, they gave you artificial or charged you $2 for each additional ounce bottle of maple...a bit steep IMHO. The french toast made with homemade bread was very spongy and cinnamony.

    I would go back, as I'm sure it beats anything in the area....

      We ALWAYS stop at the Littleton Diner when passing through that area.
      This is the finest food in the area.
      I order the pancakes(the best!),FF(also outstanding),and the hash(the best also) at one sitting.
      It's the ony way to get the best of all three at one time.
      The place is usually crowded so get there early!

        I agree it's a great place. Hash and pancakes are outstanding. Don't know if the beans are homemade. Let us know.

          Seriously to die for FF, but the hamburger was ho-hum and the lunch special was dried out from being kept under a warming lamp (or something) for too long. Breakfast sounds better than the lunch we had...

            The Littleton diner is worth going out of your way for. If you are into early American diner food, then this place fits the bill. While their breakfasts are what most everyone goes for, I must say I have enjoyed several lunches there. Great cheeseburgers and FF, meatloaf, and American chop suey.

              Hey, that sounds great, thanks...I also notice that they make their own baked beans....anyone try these?

                GREAT place!!!! My husband got the pancakes but I got the Best roast beef hash in the world and eggs. They make their own hash. We tried another place for breakfast and their hash was out of a can.
