A Complete Guide to Must-Visit Coffee Spots in New Hampshire’s Grand North

Contributed by Jess Walter

On a chilly New Hampshire morning, there’s nothing like a cup of hot coffee to get you feeling toasty. From the Great North Woods to the White Mountains, New Hampshire’s majestic Grand North boasts plenty of local coffee spots where guests can find fine food, artisanal brews, and friendly service. Start your day with a delicious cup of joe at one of these top Grand North hotspots.

Moose Muck Coffee House

This rustic coffee house is located in Colebrook, and serves coffee that’s delicious either hot or cold.  In the winter, sit by the fire and warm up with an espresso, or sit outside and cool down in the summer with an iced mocha. If you or your friends aren’t big fans of coffee, Moose Muck also serves fresh smoothies, tea, and hot cocoa along with a wide variety of breakfast and brunch foods.

Le Rendez Vous Bakery

This little cafe in Colebrook serves up authentic French recipes that come to you straight from the bakeries of Paris. Certified Bakers Marc Ounis and Verlaine Daeron serve up delicious French bread, pastries, and other delicacies in the Colebrook-based hotspot. Customers can sit, relax, and enjoy a strong cup of hot coffee with their sweet treat.

Mostly Muffins

While the main attraction at this Colebrook shop is most certainly their delicious muffins, you can also enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee as you eat. You can get your coffee and your muffins to go from the shop’s convenient drive-thru, or you can soak up a little sun in their outdoor seating area. Guests are also able to enjoy breakfast sandwiches, fresh fruit cups, cinnamon buns, and more breakfast treats.


Water Wheel Breakfast and Gift House

This quaint breakfast spot in Jefferson offers friendly service and home cooking that’s bound to satisfy any appetite. You can enjoy French toast, Belgian waffles, fresh fruit and more as you sip your coffee. If you’re a visitor to New Hampshire, you can even pick up a souvenir or memento at the Water Wheel gift shop, which sells everything from locally sourced cosmetics to the owner Tricia’s famous fudge.

White Mountain Cafe & Book Store

Curl up with a cup of joe and your favorite book at this cozy coffee spot, located in Gorham. You can enjoy delicious organic brews, and if you’re feeling hungry, try a fresh sandwich, a hearty soup, or a homemade dessert.
