I just picked up the May issue of New Hampshire Magazine. The enticing stack of blueberry pancakes on the cover and the headline “Best Breakfasts” combined with the scent of toasting bread wafting up the stairs to my office have my mouth watering.
New Hampshire Magazine does a great job of capitalizing on people’s love of lists – Top 10 this, Best Of that.
Included in the Best Breakfasts cover story are two local eateries: The Stix and Benton’s Sugar Shack.
New Hampshire Magazine describes The Stix, “It’s a bit off the road, but not far from I-93 in Campton, next to the Tru-Value. This rustic eatery offers homemade goodness. Try the fish cakes with eggs your way. When you become a regular you can sit in the back room with the bar and TV.”
According to the magazine, Benton’s Sugar Shack is a “Classic New Hampshire off-the-beaten-track maple sugar operation with loads of charm. In season, watch them boil it down; otherwise, order a plate of pancakes or their French toast made from bread baked by an elderly couple down the road. Smother in maple syrup. Congratulate yourself for finding this place. Take the kids – they’ll love feeding the ducks in the pond.”
The Stix is located at 18 Six Flags Road in Campton and is open Monday-Thursday 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sunday 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Sugar Shack is located at 2010 Route 175 in Thornton and is open Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
