This classic "grass strip" attracts general aviation...

This classic "grass strip" attracts general aviation enthusiasts, antique airplane buffs and anyone who enjoys watching planes. With just 2000 feet of turf runway and a pilots' lounge that's a throwback to the good old days, You'll see plenty of interesting planes and the people who fly them! Daring visitors can take a "thrill ride" in an historic 1930 New Standard open-air biplane and fly over the nearby beaches Hampton Airfield has had continuous Piper Cub training since 1946. Open Deck Cafe 7AM - 2PM

Hampton Airfield is a historic site (started in the 40's) which until recently was a grass only strip. Now there is a paved runway and taxiways alongside the grass. Best of both worlds. Awesome Airfield Cafe with excellent breakfast and lunch food. Only open until 2 pm, but worth the visit. In summer, you can eat out on the deck... More

This is an old time airfield with alot of small planes. Control tower was redone recently. There is a small restaurant there but has never been open while I have been on premises. If your heading North on Rt 1 it is on the right, kind of a nondescript road. If you reach the Harley dealer you have gone to... More

This has to be the best breakfast place on the N.H. seacoast. Good food at a good value with the benefit of airplanes flying into the front yard.

Serves a very nice breakfast or lunch, and plenty of views of the local Hampton Airfield. For a change of pace and a neat place to bring grandchildren .

Great food, fun to watch the airport operations while you eat. Always very busy so expect to wait. Service is fast, food always hot and fresh.

This is a fun location and I need to remind ourselves that I don't go here for the great service but for hopefully, some tasty food and great outdoor seating on a warm sunny day, to watch the airplanes. Its taken me a two or three visits to recognize which food is really good and which definitely is just so-so.... More

The eggs and hash were excellent in the Apple fritter French toast was otherworldly.(good thing). The service was excellent and my only disappointment was the potato pancakes. They... More

I use to love going to the Airfield Cafe. I would never give a restaurant a poor review due to wait times, however, my last visit there will be my last one for a while. We were told it would be 20-30 minutes before we were sat, but it ended up being 50 min. (not a huge deal) We ordered... More
