Ceres Bakery

One of my favorite lunch destinations and one of the most colorful scenes in downtown Portsmouth – Ceres Bakery and its richly painted building are situated on Penhallow Street near the federal building on Daniel Street.  Stop by and check it out sometime.

Think Spring | Prescott Park

After the weather of the last few days, let’s stop and reflect on the fact that April is only 32 days away.  The decks will soon be open, and the trees will be back in bloom with blue skies and the return of the green vines.  Above, the power lines hang above Ceres Bakery on Penhallow Street and the chimneys of Sheafe Street.  Below, a shot of a tree in bloom at Prescott Park…a re-post of one of my favorites from warmer days.  Hope everyone is doing well through this weekend and has their power back or has found a way to stay warm.

Ristorante Massimo | Portsmouth, NH

Ristorante Massimo is often discussed by locals and foodies as the best “special occasion” restaurant and most romantic place for dinner.  It’s definitely on my list of places to visit, just waiting for an appropriate occasion.

The building is next to the Ceres Bakery on Penhallow Street, and looks very intimate and inviting with its brick entrance at the corner.  Check out the menu and some shots from inside at their website here:  RISTORANTE MASSIMO.

Ceres Bakery | Penhallow Street

Portsmouth is known for its wide array of delicious restaurants.  To the left is Ristorante Massimo (with a happy couple heading in for a bite) – a place I’ve yet to indulge in, but that is definitely on my list.  Ceres Bakery is easily one of the most colorful buildings in town, and they make some good food too.  Took the opportunity with the evening light to snap a self portrait.
