Editor’s Choice Pressed Café

Breakfast sandwich
It’s always a happy day when Basic ingredients in Bristol opens for the season. For 30 years, they’ve been delighting Lake Newfoundland residents and summer visitors with baked goods (fresh bread, pies, scones, muffins, cookies, and ridiculously good sticky buns) and take-out food (paella, macaroni and cheese, chicken parmesan, tofu spinach lasagna and more), but this year we have to call their cookie breakfast sandwich. You might just get cookies, but why would you avoid piling on bacon, eggs, and cheese? Reading this in the colder months? Visit their Facebook page to see where the food truck hangs out.

Exceptional lunch
Fortunately, the Pressed coffee continues to expand, with New Hampshire locations now in Bedford, Salem, Spit Brook Road in Nashua, and drive-thru on Cotton Road in Nashua. Be sure to check out the dish of the day, but if you decide to dive deeper into the menu, you might find it hard to make up your mind. The paninis are delicious, and other offerings include all-day breakfast, acai bowls, smoothies, vegan options, soups, salads, their signature bowls, toast (avocado, smoked salmon, labneh, hummus or Nutella and peanut butter) and much more. For liquid-only meals, try a smoothie or something from the raw juice and tonic menu.
