“Great local place!”

Robie's Country Store
Ranked #4 of 37 Restaurants in Hooksett
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$5 - US$15
Cuisines: American
Description: Robie's Country Store has long been the premier, must-visit stop along the campaign trail during Presidential and local elections in New Hampshire. Listed in the NH and National Register of Historic Places, Robie's has served locals, river traffic, mill workers, and rail traffic since it opened in 1822. The building, from its well-worn floorboards to the sunbaked front porch and the picnic tables looking over the Merrimack River, gives evidence of over a century of service as a local New England market. Robie's has served as a campaign stop for both Mitt Romney and his father George Romney, and Jimmy Carter walked through these doors as a relatively unknown candidate...as have many politicians dating back to the 1950s. Evidence of the political history adorns the walls. Moving into modern times, Robie's welcomes the movement to "buy local" and serves as a café and market where you'll find the best NH locally-made goods alongside a menu featuring the freshest locally-grown food available...and famous pancakes! Amber and Josh Enright bring their full menu from Roots Catering to Robie's. "This is really how you had to run a store before mass production. Your local market sold locally-made goods." said Amber. The café at Robie's features an eclectic take on many classic New England foods and also includes a rotation of fresh salads, delicious soups, and hot/cold sandwiches. The market taps into small-batch, homemade items made locally throughout NH and New England to offer a high-quality selection across candies, gifts, stationery, cooking supplies, cheeses, oils, and numerous other items. Open for breakfast and lunch with take-out available. Featuring Java Tree coffee and full espresso bar, Nashoba Brook slow rise bread, fresh baked scones, quiches, frittatas, and much, much more.

We go for breakfast and enjoy our time. Good history to look at around the walls, great menue to pick from for breakfast and lunch and average pricing. we mainly go for breakfast on a weekend but have stopped in during the week too. We did go one time and was told it was going to be 45min and they had no AC but we think it was an off day. Nice staff and the locals are great to say hello too. We will return and alway send people their way.

I go to a restaurant, ESPECIALLY A DELI, for the food, NOT THE BUILDING !! We bought their "best" sub, The Waterworks $9. It was not good. The capicola was UNEATABLE: tough and waxy. The bread was on the stale side. With few veggies and little oil, the sandwich was VERY dry. Don't know about the rest of their menu, & I never will !!

I eat here for breakfast every now and then. The food is good. Breakfast sandwiches and coffee is top notch! I always buy a giant chocolate chip cookie too. They are awesome. The place has been around forever. They have lunch too. Seems like lots of locals go there, so its probably good. I have never eaten lunch there though. Over all, good place, good food, good service.
