If you're visiting Dartmouth or just passing by Hanover, you'll have to stop by Lou's. Whatever time it is, get breakfast food. And don't forget to end your meal with a slice of pie and a sugar glazed donut to go.

We went for breakfast. We really enjoyed everything. I wish we could've taken some pastries to go. They looked yummy. I did notice that the waitstaff would help out by making toast and such. I only saw one of them do it properly though. She...More
