A true gem in the heart of old Franconia, NH! A fully windowed porch for dining, with the early morning sun shining in and an unobstructed view of Mt Layafette, Cannon Mountain, and the Presidentials!

The table was set with classic wooden plates (replaced for the meal) and homemade maple spread. The menu was diverse and wonderfully classic New England (homemade sausage, buttermilk oatmeal pancakes, classic eggs Benedict, etc.).

We'll be coming back again! Thank you, Alyssa (the "second-nicest waitress we have ever met"). Another quote from my 10-year old boy: "this is what a 5-star restaurant should be!"

Like I said, a true gem!

This place rules. Not too far off of 93, the bacon is some of the best we've ever had. The portions aren't massive, but they don't need to be - just classic style, simple pancakes served hot and (thoughtfully) in two waves. We've been coming for years and sometimes will plan our trips north to coincide with when Polly's is open (after mud season, before foliage ends.)

One tip, call ahead - the line on weekends can be really, really long (but worth it.)

Our first visit, and it will not the last. We arrived on a Sunday morning about 10:30 am to a packed parking lot and upon going inside we were greeted with an even more packed lobby. Once we checked in with the hostess and were told a 15 min wait and that we would be sharing a table, we were very unsure as to how this was going to pan out. When we were seated, we did realize that that elbow room was a premium, however all worries were taken away once the waitress started her work, she made everyone feel welcome and the awkwardness of being in close proximity to strangers went away quickly. We soon forgot that we were in a small room packed with about 70 other people and soon were on out way to a very enjoyable experience. While a bit pricey for a casual breakfast, the staff and the ambiance make it worth the little extra that you will pay. We did not get to stop in and brows the attached store as it was closed. Overall I would recommend this as a must stop to anyone in the Franconia and Sugar Hill area.

We've been a couple of times and alwasy enjoy as a family. I do'nt remember whether they take reservations, but if they do, I'd recommend you call first. We had quite a wait on our second visit. But the variety of batters for the pancakes, real maple syrup, yummy sides, rustic decor all add up to a lovely time. Nice, though tiny, gift shop where you can browse while you wait.

Food is excellent ... I love a warm breakfast, but things cool down too fast before I'm finished. A genius at Polly's came up with a brilliant idea ... serve only half the pancake order initially, the rest when you're ready for them! Even if you don't like pancakes, standard breakfast fare (at an above standard taste) is available. Plus, maple butter on every table ... toast never tasted so good. Can't wait for them to reopen!
