Everything is STELLAR!

Anytime we hit Portsmouth, New Hampshire, or head up to Maine (from NY), we make SURE to stop at Beach Pea for sandwiches, sides, and desserts for later. Their bread and croissants are award-worthy, especially the fougasse (photo attached), a rosemary-streaked work of bread art. The chocolate... read more

We had known about the Beach Pea for several years, but hadn't made the 90-minute trip until recently, so we can be excused for making 3 visits in 2 days. Rightly praised by pretty much everyone on many levels, so will just briefly add that roasted garlic and sourdough loaves of bread were as good as we've ever had; croissants,... More

Beach Pea is the place to go for the best baked goods In the area. It's a bakery with breads, cakes, cupcakes, scones, and other selections. It's also a cafe with soups, salads and sandwiches, all freshly made with ingredients from local suppliers. There is indoor and outdoor seating. The staff is friendly and efficient. This is our favorite lunchtime... More

We have been here several times, everything is fresh and tasty. You have to save room for dessert, the only problem is what to have, decisions, decisions, everything looks so good and tastes even better!!

My wife and I were in the area on vacation and had made our way to the Kittery trading post. We happened to be leaving at lunch time so I jumped on TA to find us a place to eat. Beach Pea jumped out as just what we were looking for. We were SO glad we stopped. We both had... More

A local friend took me here for lunch while I was visiting from out of state, and I would like to eat here again and again! She ordered her favorite sandwich from the board of the Beach Pea's signature lunches and I ordered mine custom-made from a list of dozens of choices. Each sandwich was delicious and filling. The salad... More

This is a " green" bakery and cafe with incredible offerings. The splendid breads ( the fougasse is our favorite), the delicious pastries (pies, cakes, cookies) and good selections of coffees and teas is worth the trip to this place. The prices can be high but you get what pay for.
