Blueberry Muffin Restaurant
1769 White Mountain Hwy
North Conway, NH 03860
We have been coming to the Blueberry Muffin restaurant for years and believe me when I say that I am surprised that I am giving it a 2 Star Rating. We have always had such a great experience here and while the service was great, the food was not. I wanted a small breakfast, so I simply ordered a bagel and cream cheese from their “healthy options” menu. I was surprised to see that a cup of fresh fruit was not even offered- so I got the next best option which was half a grapefruit. While it tasted good, it would be quite hard to mess up an easy order such as that one.
Blueberry pancakes were also served to the table but the batter was incredibly dense and it seemed like they were not cooked enough. They are also MASSIVE, which is usually not a bad thing but when they are hard to eat- they are not as appealing. The leftovers were put in the car and we actually left them in there, hoping the heat throughout the day would help dry them out a bit and cook them more. Needless to say, homemade pancakes are far better, especially for the price charged for them.
Their home fries are good though and if you want a simple breakfast, their special of two eggs, toast etc is decent for the price. Their famous Blueberry muffins are also large and those are thankfully, still tasty. As for the decor, their website is a tad misleading as it makes it seem like they are freshly renovated and should be in top quality but where we were sitting, the slant in the floor was noticeable- our table was on an incline. What is neat is that along the walls, art from local artists is placed and you are able to purchase them. Quite a few pieces had been sold since in our dining area, the walls were empty.
Overall, while the service is always great, it seems like the restaurant has been going downhill over the past few years and I don’t think we would visit it again, which is quite sad since it had been one of our favorite places to go for so many years. They still get rave reviews from other people though, so maybe they just had an off day while we were there. For more information, go to their official website here.
