life in the Kearsarge area

what's happening in the Kearsarge/Lake Sunapee area of NH

Stop for a slice

It was Saturday, and after a busy morning of errands in New London, my mom and I were ready for lunch. But where to go? Mom went to a Chinese restaurant the day before, so that was a no. I ate at Jack’s the day before, so that was a no. We drove down Main Street and there was Screwie Lewiez – a place neither of us had tried before.  (Well,  let me correct that, I did patronize the Newport location, grabbing slices while I was on the road a couple times, but had not been to their new location in New London.)

It was a nice treat. We were a bit early for lunch (11 a.m. – hey, a 6 a.m. breakfast is long gone by then!) so we had the place to ourselves. We each ordered two slices and found a table near the window. We were impressed with the cloth placemats, holiday table decorations, and the super clean bathroom (one of my pet peeves in restaurants). Our slices were warmed and brought to our table; boy, were they yummy! But really, really big – I could have had just one (and then had room for a cookie for dessert). What I liked, though, was the friendly staff. The waitress asked about our day (and our errands) and the owner checked on us to see if we were enjoying our meal. I liked it so much I brought my husband for lunch the next day – and they remembered me. Now, you don’t get that kind of service in New York City!
