    What's not to like about a superb soup purveyor-cum-bakery, right on the water? The Loaf was one of my boys' favorites during their years at the Academy, and I try to stop there any time I'm passing through, just to see what the latest rage in soup might be. And I do mean "latest" because the menu changes constantly. Each crock is accompanied by a big piece of home-baked bread...yummy! Sandwiches are terrific, too. Things can be a little hectic and noisy, but any small wait is worth it. Oh, and did I mention the desserts?

    Updated 4/29/14: Alas, the Loaf has closed. If you're hungry, try Szechuan Taste. Completely different, but quite good.

    Favorite Dish: The cheddar potato soup is absolutely the best I've ever had.

    The route into Exeter from Route 95, if you're driving north from the Boston area, is quite pretty, following some lovely country roads. Be careful, though -- behind some of those twists and turns in the road, it is quite likely that a local police officer will be lurking, radar gun at the ready, to bring your swift trip to a screeching halt. I'm not counseling speed, mind you; the roads can be treacherous in the rain, snow, or fog, even if you know the route well. But I do find it absurd for a local community to try to make money off the out-of-towners who are just guilty of slightly leaden feet!
