I spent last week on the coasts of New Hampshire and Maine with my family as an extension of my parents' 40th wedding anniversary celebration. We traveled through many little coastal towns including Portsmouth, Kittery, Kennebunkport, Ogunquit and Freeport.
With 9 adults, 1 three year old and 2 nursing infants, we were constantly looking for places to touch down and take a rest. We found this great coffee shop in the midst of our shopping called Breaking New Grounds at 14 Market Square in Portsmouth, NH. It offered everything we needed - good/hearty coffee, free wifi, rich and homemade desserts, gelato, spacious tables (with optional outdoor seating) and a solid mission statement.
Anytime things like this are done to the coffee, it's an automatic "oo I love it"
We Make the Best Cup of Coffee Because...
-We start with the finest, hand selected, freshly roasted beans
-Our milk comes from Hatchland Dairy...a local NH Farm
-Hatchland's cows don't want or need growth hormones
-Taste is preserved by a very special pasteurization process
They score major points with their commitment to the environment with the way they handle their waste
Their gelato was great for the hot day that it was, but nothing to write home about (I will admit though that I'm comparing it to my gelato palate I developed during my trip to Italy 4 years ago).
The selection of baked goods was professional and perfect looking...full of rich flavor and sweetness
I know of one little guy that especially liked the chocolate chip cookies.
Sawyer's love for life and people has taught me to do just that - love life and people more...
