Best of New Hampshire: Polly’s Pancake Parlor

Polly’s Pancake Parlor [672 NH-117, Sugar Hill, NH 03586] is a breakfast institution in these woods. Opened for 75-years this family owned restaurant is skillfully practiced in the pancake art. Arrive as early as possible, and make sure to call as soon as you wake up to put your name on the waitlist as this place packs up early! And for good reason. Say hi to Trot Trot for me then head inside.

I got a pancake sampler trying three different batters and three different add ins. Cornmeal with blueberries, oatmeal buttermilk with chocolate chips, and plain with the flavor of the day – pineapple. When served to me face down they looked like any ordinary pancakes. Flip them over to see they are chockfull of tasty toppings, and my goodness each combination was better than the next.

You will only find the best maple products to use on your pancakes at no additional cost. The New Hampshire maple syrups is hot packed on premises, while the maple sugar and sumptuous maple spread are homemade on the farm.

Coffee was hot, satisfying, and bottomless. We had a wonderful experience at Polly’s, I couldn’t see a trip to the White Mountains complete without a visit.
