Killer breakfast near Canaan NH?

Hi All,

I have another request for a pre-bass tounament breakfast restaurant for this upcoming Saturday morning. This time we'll be headed to Goose Pond in Canaan NH. We'll be traveling from the Manchester area up rte 93 to rte 89 getting off at Rte 4 just southeast of Lebanon.

I'm guessing our best bets will be in Lebanon, but would prefer not to have to drive past our exit and backtrack back to route 4.

Any suggestions??? Looking for hearty, clog-your-arteries kind of fare that will sustain us for our 8 hour tournament!

  1. Maybe Foothills restaurant in Warner NH. I think it's exit 8 off Rt 89.

    1. The Riverside Grill is right near your exit from 89 (first left, I think), but I don't know if they serve breakfast. [Riverside Grill Restaurant,(603) 448-2571, Riverside Dr, Lebanon, NH 03766]

      If you are willing to go one exit too far, The Fort is very close to the next exit. [The Fort, (603) 448-5512, 151 Heater Rd, Lebanon, NH 03766]

      Both joints should be able to give you what you need. Good luck with the fishes.

      1. Hi All,

        Thanks for the reqs so far!

        I called the Riverside and found that they only serve a Sunday brunch... no other breakfast. The woman I spoke to recommended Mickey's Roadside Cafe in Enfield (right on route 4.. we will pass it on the way to Goose Pond). Any experience?? I called the Fort but got an amswering machine. I will try them again.

        Thanks again!

          I've only seen ads in the paper for Mickey's and haven't heard anything about it positive or negative. The Fort is part of a truck stop and will almost certainly be open when you need it (and if you really want the grease, they serve French Toast made with crullers).
