Coffee Land

We have quite a bit of coffee shops. However most of them close by 3. We have the standard Starbucks, and New Hampshire is known for loving Dunkin dounuts. However these are the coffee shops in town, with great coffee and food.

Bars

Nashua has a load of bars. Generally speaking they are open until 1am, and they are fantastic. This list will probably never be complete, but here are some local favorites.

Food

There is quite a large range of food given the size of the city. Many restaurants are also coffee shops. Nashua’s restaurants usually fall into two categories. Places that close at 3pm, and places that open at 5pm. Eating between the hours of 3-5pm is quite hard. Outside of this list, there are many chain restaurants in town, and the food court in the mall is usually good.

There are also several local businesses that are worth shopping at.
