Breakfast Sandwich
It’s always a happy day when Basic Ingredients in Bristol opens for the season. For 30 years they’ve delighted Newfound Lake residents and summer visitors with baked goods (fresh bread, pies, scones, muffins, cookies and ridiculously good sticky buns) and to-go meals (paella, mac and cheese, chicken parm, tofu spinach lasagna and more), but this year we need to call out their biscuit breakfast sandwich. You could just get biscuits, but why would you skip piling on bacon, egg and cheese? Reading this in the colder months? Visit their Facebook page to see where the food truck is hanging out.

Outstanding Lunch
Happily, the Pressed Café is continuing to expand, with New Hampshire locations now in Bedford, Salem, Spit Brook Road in Nashua and the drive-thru on Cotton Road in Nashua. Make sure to check out the day’s special, but if you decide to dive deeper into the menu, you might find it tough to make a decision. The paninis are delicious, and other offersings include breakfast all day, açai bowls, smoothies, vegan items, soups, salads, their signature power bowls, toasts (avocado, smoked salmon, labneh, hummus or Nutella and peanut butter) and much more. For liquid-only meals, try a smoothie or something from the raw juice and tonics menu.
