5 Best Restaurants in Littleton, The White Mountains

Crumb Bum

$ Fodor's choice
Stop by this cute cake shop to stock up on creative, and utterly delectable, baked goods, such as grapefruit-rosemary-cardamom short bread cookies, maple cinnamon rolls, and macarons in a variety of flavors, and egg-bacon-cheese breakfast sandwiches constructed on ethereal duck-fat biscuits. Fine coffees are available, too.

Schilling Beer Taproom

$ Fodor's choice
With a storybook setting in a converted 18th-century mill on the Ammonoosuc River, this craft brewpub offers tasty wood-fired pizzas, bratwurst sandwiches, house-baked soft pretzels, and other fare that pairs well with its distinctive European ales. The pie topped with prosciutto, pears, chèvre, mozzarella, and beer-caramelized onions is a favorite, best enjoyed with a farmhouse-style saison.

Tim-Bir Alley

$$$$ Fodor's choice

In this terrific contemporary downtown restaurant, you can sample some of the tastiest farm-to-table fare in the White Mountains. The menu changes frequently and uses regional American ingredients in creative ways—try country pâté with venison and pistachio, followed by crispy maple-glazed duck breast with smashed carrots and bok choy.

The Inkwell


Drop by this hip café with two downtown Littleton locations, both of them with ample indoor and outdoor seating, for a light bite, to relax with a book, or sip one of the well-crafted fair-trade coffee or organic loose-leaf tea drinks. Several kinds of toast with tasty toppings (ricotta and lemon honey; cheddar, ham, and egg) are available at breakfast, along with myriad scones, cookies, and gluten-free pastries. The Beacon Street location in the up-and-coming Rail Trail District is more spacious and better for hanging out or working, while the smaller Mill Street locale is closer to the riverfront and downtown shopping.
