Friends, we are here today to talk to you about Polly’s Pancake Parlor, a magical restaurant in Sugar Hill, NH. Frankly, the name of the town says it all.
Let’s journey back, shall we? I, Meghan, was first introduced to Polly’s Pancake Parlor in May 2019 by all of my best friends at once (literally–it was during my bachelorette party because duh, where else would one want to spend a bachelorette party?)
I don’t know if it’s the memory of spending a weekend with all of my best friends simultaneously, the pancakes themselves, or some combination, but I think Polly’s cast a magical spell on me. Since then I have OBVIOUSLY taken Neal there as well as various of Neal’s family members and friends. Every trip to Polly’s has been a sheer delight, and every person we’ve brought there has fallen in love.
One thing that makes Polly’s so special is (spoiler alert!!) the pancakes, naturally. They have 6 batters and 4 toppings you can choose from, and you can mix and match for each individual pancake!! Plus daily special flavors!! (Plus a lot of other delicious food, but no one came to this post to read about that, did you?) In case anyone was curious, we do in fact have all the regular batter and topping choices memorized. They are as follows, in any combination:
Note: I feel great about my decision to lay out all these options in a table for you
Anyways, just in case I haven’t gotten the message across yet, we cannot recommend Polly’s highly enough. Run, don’t walk, to Polly’s next time you’re anywhere near the area. Or ski 😉
Hi there, friends. This weekend, mealswithMeal became mealsonwheels. Meal drove to Meghan’s hometown, the illustrious New Canaan, to hang with Meggo’s friends (& parents) during her birthday weekend. The weekend swiftly turned into one big eating adventure, to the point where we need to separate this blog post by the day. Trust us, you’d be overwhelmed if we tried to fit all our foodventures in one post.
A literate Meal.
On Saturday, Meal met up with one of Meghan’s soulmate friends, Hilarie. (Atlernative text to read here: On Saturday, Hilarie and Meghan met up with Meghan’s boyfriend, Neal). We first stopped by Le Pain Quotidien, where Neal silently decided to start referring to Hilarie as Hilarie “the Bruncher” Bininski.
Hilarie’s first meal with Meal. AKA Hilaghan’s first meal with Neal.
It was a pure delight to combine all these friends and all this food. We took a group selfie no more than 20 minutes into the inital meeting of Hilarie and Neal, which felt so right.
After lunch, we were very full but simply could not NOT pop into the illustrious “New Canaan Olive Oil” (everything is illustrious there) for some samples and some browsing. Meghan here, and I’ll be honest: my initial plan in going here was to marvel at how a store could possibly stay in business selling nothin’ but olive oil. Well, friends, joke’s on me. Turns out I really enjoy tasting olive oil and trying to figure out if I could afford fancy honey (spoiler alert: I couldn’t).
All in all, it was a deeply successful day of food and friends. We’ll keep you posted on part 2.
