A Visit to Polly's Pancake Parlor

Oct 21, 2005

Every year thousands of tourists come to New Hampshire to see the state's brilliant fall colors.

Some leaf-peepers-in-the-know head for the north country to make a special side-trip to Polly's Pancake Parlor in Sugar Hill.

When it opened nearly 70 years ago, the regular customers came from the region's grand hotels.

But these days people come to Polly's from all over the world for the homemade pancakes and maple products.

But as the last of this year's foliage peaks and the days get shorter and colder, there's not much time left to experience Polly's.

The restaurant closes for the season this Sunday afternoon.

New Hampshire Public Radio correspondent Shannon Mullen made the trip to Sugar Hill, and she sent us this audio postcard of breakfast at Polly's.
