I arrived in downtown Newmarket at the end of the noontime rush so getting a parking space was easy. I went to The Big Bean Café. The décor was country-style with rustic wooden tables, chairs, and stools. There was also seating at a counter and...More

Big Bean is undoubtedly the best breakfast place I have been to in NH. Small place but huge flavor. Great for vegans/vegetarians as well! The Homer Eggs Benedict is amazing. Homemade breads and muffins. Everything is super fresh. Long wait on the weekends but well...More

There's nothing fair on the menu...just one dish that's better than another. Get there early - it's small, popular and be prepared to wait in line. It's worth the wait!

Delicious and unique breakfast choices. The French toast is amazing as are the egg dishes , which are actually more artisan creations Huge homemade fruit or chocolate (or both) muffins, homemade breads, coffee, smoothies. Typically long waits on weekends so go early.

Outstanding brunch in a small-ish cafe in Newmarket. We went there for brunch on a Sunday morning (9:30) and waited about 15 minutes. I'll bet the wait is longer later in the morning. Well worth it - the food is well-made with inventive combinations, using...More

Downtown Newmarket is a nice scene, and The Big Bean Cafe is right in the middle of it. The food is OK - sometimes close to inspired, sometimes fairly routine, never terrible,. It's a fun place to eat, hang with the locals, drink in the...More

Best breakfast spot on the Seacoast. LOVE their unique dishes. Fresh ingredients and friendly staff. Cool hip vibe in an New England mill town trending modern. The only downside: always a wait for a table. But you can wait outside on the sidewalk and talk...More

The food is so good that if you don't get there early enough, you could find yourself standing in a line that goes out the door onto the sidewalk. There are a couple of tables outside which is nice when the weather is cooperating. Best...More
