Best Pancakes
Pancakes are the signature dish, served all day at this gleaming yellow diner, a welcoming landmark since 1930. Choose from whole wheat, buckwheat, or buttermilk, made with flour that’s stone-ground down by the river. 145 Main St. 603-444-3994;

Best Deli With WiFi
Wendy Manning serves offbeat and delicious breakfast and lunch specials and daily from-scratch soups. A multicolored space with comfortable corners, the cafe offers WiFi and a menu of coffees and teas. 297 Main St. 603-823-5141;

Best-Rounded Menu
A cheery gathering spot that’s as good for locally sourced salads and great pastries as it is for Philly cheese steak and pan-seared duck. The mimosas are famous. 21 Main St. 603-593-3303;

Best Hard Cider
Sparkling and still ciders are crafted from heirloom apples at Poverty Hill Orchards overlooking the Connecticut River. Sales and tastings during the fall; ciders are available at markets throughout New England. July is pick-your-own berry season. 98 Poverty Lane. 603-448-1511;

Best Road Food
This good-value, family-run restaurant is just off I-89 at exits 8 and 9. Sit at the counter, by the woodstove, or in the sunny front dining space, and feast on the “Foothills” sandwich (turkey, bacon, tomato, Swiss on rye). 15 East Main St. 603-456-2140

Best Brasserie
L. A. BURDICK, Walpole
The ambience is as close to Paris as you’ll find in the Granite State, and the all-day menu ranges from charcuterie and cheese platters to steak frites. Around 5 p.m., white tablecloths and the dinner menu appear. Between meals, patrons sip Bordeaux, espresso, or the world’s richest hot chocolate. 47 Main St. 603-756-2882;

Best Cider Donuts
Light and tangy, the Yankee answer to the croissant has been perfected by Scott and Teresa Stearns. Gourmet deli items and meals-to-go at the country store, plus evening dining in the former farmhouse next door. Route 302. 603-383-9061;

Best Culinary Journey
Chef Luca Paris, a native of Turin, Italy, takes you on a European tour, from French pate to Greek-style marinated lamb kabobs. 10 Central Square. 603-358-3335;

Best Bistro
CAVA, Portsmouth
In the heart of the state’s most cosmopolitan area, this is a serious wine bar serving contemporary and classic Mediterranean tapas. Outdoor dining in season. 10 Commercial Alley. 603-319-1575;

Best Boulangerie
French croissants, Belgian chocolate, and comfy couches make it the choicest cafe between the White Mountains and Montreal. Locals appreciated this gift to their town from two Parisians so much that they convinced the U.S. State Department to let the couple stay. 121 Main St. 603-237-5150
