14 Great New England Road Trip Food Spots

The Green Spot | Oakland, Maine

Expect killer pies and great lobster rolls at this beloved gourmet grocery and café.

Sunny Day Diner | Lincoln, NH

This cute-as-a-button spot makes superb banana bread French toast and a road trip–worthy Reuben.

Red Hen Baking | Middlesex, VT

Some of the best breads in New England are baked here. Don’t miss the egg sandwiches and tartines.

King Arthur Baking Café, Bakery & Store | Norwich, VT

From bread, jam, and porridge to a perfect grilled cheese, this café has day-trippers covered.

Four Aces Diner | West Lebanon, NH

There’s a 1952 Worcester diner car hidden in this non-descript building, and its eggs Benedict and poutine are terrific.

Bob’s Clam Hut | Kittery, ME

While the menu is vast, it’s really all about the fried clams (ask for them “Bob’s style”).

Puritan Backroom | Manchester, NH

They claim to have invented chicken tenders, so you have to try them — either straight up or baked parmigiana-style.

The Farm Table | Bernardston, MA

Several restaurants inside Kringle Candle serve brunch through dinner (hit the more casual Tavern for excellent flatbreads).

Publick House | Sturbridge, MA

The bread basket, with its cornbread and sticky buns, is the stuff of legend. So is the classic turkey dinner.

Modern Diner | Pawtucket, RI

You can’t miss with any of the many daily specials here, but we love the chouriço special and yummy custard French toast.

Rein’s Deli | Vernon, CT

Of course the main route between NYC and Boston has a terrific deli. Love the matzo ball soup and corned beef.

Dottie’s Diner | Woodbury, CT

The doughnuts here are so beloved, their recipes are held like state secrets. Same with the plump, buttery chicken pies.

The Lunch Box | Meriden, CT

This is the best place to try Connecticut’s signature steamed cheeseburgers, full stop.

Clam Castle | Madison, CT

Come for fried fish and hot butter lobster rolls, then — if you time it right — catch a beach sunset at Hammonasset State Park.
