Country Cuisine 3: Jaffrey

Located between Peterborough and Keene, Jaffrey is often overlooked by motorists.  The town has a lot of charm, with several 18th and 19th century homes, wide streets, and Mount Monadnock.

The Sunflowers Restaurant brightens up downtown Jaffrey with its vivid blue exterior – and the great food served within.  It advertises itself as “a cozy bistro with a gourmet twist.”  Classic dishes such as boeuf bourguignon, coquilles St. Jacques, and coq au vin highlight the menu.  Desserts include chocolate orange mousse, dark chocolate espresso cheesecake, lemon raspberry cake, and other mouth-watering offerings.  The dishes are complimented by works from local artists that grace the walls. Locally grown ingredients are featured. Open for lunch and dinner every day but Tuesday; there is live music on Sundays for brunch and dinner.  Address: 21 Main Street, Jaffrey; phone 603-593-3303; website:

The Thorndike Restaurant and Parson’s Pub are housed in the 1830’s Monadnock Inn (formerly the Inn at Jaffrey Center).  Featuring a mix of Continental and American dishes, the seasonal offerings include classics like brie, wild mushroom ravioli, and chicken Veronique as well as artichoke poppers, San Francisco pot roast, and ahi tuna salad. Homemade breads and rolls, elegant desserts, and an extensive wine list compliment the menu. Open Tuesdays through Saturdays for dinner.  Address: 379 Main Street, Jaffrey; phone: 603-532-7800; website:
