Both times went around 1-2pm. They are very polite and friendly. Food is a good quantity. Many choices for vegetarians. Their pies look so GOOD! Sweet potato hash is fantastic. They have lots of variety.

A Hanover tradition, Lou's is the perfect place for breakfast and almost as good for lunch. It's a must for any visitor to Dartmouth/Hanover.
