Warner rockin’ the state (according to The Hippo)

Here’s a couple of the “Best of 2017” awards that recently went to locals from The Hippo…
* Best Concord-area “Cup of Coffee” – Schoodacs Coffee & Tea, 1 E. Main St , Warner, 456-3400, schoodacs.com
* Best Concord-area Bookstore – Main Street BookEnds of Warner, 16 E. Main St., Warner, 456-2700, mainstreetbookends.com
* Best Concord-area Community Event – “Warner Fall Foliage Festival, held in downtown Warner every fall, is a free, family-friendly event that highlights rural life and colorful foliage. The Festival features live entertainment, parades, a 5K, amusement rides and food. This year’s event goes from Friday, Oct. 6, through Sunday, Oct. 8, wfff.org.”
The whole list is here.

Rewarding, but (really) no surprises… Great folks doing great things for the community. Who else should be on the list?

Brewing good news in the village

Guess where one of the best cafes in New Hampshire is located?

If you said Warner, you must have already visited Schoodacs Coffee & Tea on Main Street.

Or, you may already be a regular.

In a little more than a year, owner Darryl Parker and his team have made this cozy shop into a friendly community gathering place. Add pastries and other food from Concord’s Bread and Chocolate bakery, and italian foods to-go from Marzelli Deli in Newbury – plus, their own tasty soups and assorted goodies – and it’s hard to imagine what the village was like before they got here.

And, it just so happens that a lot of other people around the state agree.

A recent poll of WMUR-TV viewers rated Schoodacs as No. 3 among the top 10 coffee spots in the Granite State.

And when you think about all the “big city” competition they have in places like Nashua and Portsmouth they had… Well, let’s just say this is one case where No. 3 may actually be better than No. 1.

Good to the last drop.
