Best Pancakes in the world--Hookset NH!

The lead article in this month's Saveur magazine is about Robie's Country Store in Hookset. First sentence: "the best pancakes I've ever eaten are the tender buttermilk pancakes at Robie's...etc". I thought this was a pretty bold statement. Has anybody tried them?

  1. No, I always head to Parkers when I need a pancake fix. But I'll have to check this place out.

    1. I read that last night- the only time I buy Saveur is for the 100 list. I figure the writer must freelance for Saveur and be a political writer and ended up at Robie's on a different assignment. As for the pancakes- I haven't had them, but I plan on it this weekend! The only local pancakes I like are Julien's. Everything I've had at Robie's has been good- I live nearby and I love that they are there- it really is a town gathering spot.

        Don't ya just love town gathering spots? Great character. Down in Lowell is the Owl Diner - you'll see the owner of the Spinners having breakfast, the City Manager at another table and a semi homeless getting out of the cold to warm/fill his belly - I love it, it's what it's all about. Everyone smiling and enjoying one of life's great gifts - food!

      2. Robie's makes a meaty sandwich- I love the vibe there

        1. We will have to give Robie's a try this weekend. Sounds like a great place to sit and shmooze with the locals.

          1. Well, we finally ended up at Robie's Country store in Hooksett for breakfast over the weekend. We were very impressed with the atmosphere and the food! We both had the farmer's breakfast for $6.99 which included 2 eggs, choice of sausage,ham or bacon, home fries, toast, choice of 2 crepes, pancakes, or french toast, and choice of corned beef hash or baked beans. All of the food came out on 4 plates it was so much. Best french toast I've had in a long time, VERY good red bliss potato home fries. Very casual was packed with locals in the know. On our way out, we noticed a huge block of Cabot cheddar cheese for sale by the pound. We had a hunk of that to go! Very satisfied!
