New Hampshire Treats & Cupcakes

Manchester, NH Treats & Cupcakes

I went to visit my sister in Manchester, New Hampshire which was the beginning of a two-week cupcake adventure! Manchester has its own brand new cupcakery, Queen City Cupcakes.

The bakery is located in quaint downtown Manchester. The city is nicknamed the queen city, hence the name of the bakery. I chose a pumpkin cupcake and a vanilla milk chocolate. I enjoyed both cupcakes. I have a real soft spot for milk chocolate frosting so this was perfect for me. Also a nice touch for anyone that lives local is they have loyalty cards. I would definitely stop by again next time I’m in town.

The Red Arrow Diner is Manchester’s claim to fame. It regularly hosts presidents and politicians during election time and was featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.  Manchester is also where Adam Sandler and Sarah Silverman went to high school. This is a true American diner and great fun. They make home-made Twinkees (Dinah Fingers).

I had the strangest and most delicious dinner there, Meatloaf Parm! I don’t think there’s anything else to add.

We spent the afternoon in Portsmouth, New Hampshire one day. Home to the Portsmouth Baking Company.

They have a range of cakes, cupcakes and lunch items. I chose a sundae cupcake. The cake was a little buttery for our tastes but I liked the cherry pie filling that was in the middle.

Half the reason we went to New England, Lobster Rolls! We had lunch at The Dolphin Striker. Great food, but not so great service. Our waiter was a total space cadet and was totally amused by Alex’s British accent.
