    Foster's Crossroads - gone?

    Is Foster's Crossroads General Store closed permanently? Twice in the past two weeks it's been closed. A post on Yelp says it's being razed for a Dunkin's location while one on Google says it's closed.

    Such a bummer - recent additions like the Wandering Moose and Twin Mountain Cabins suggested a Twin Mountain rebirth of sorts. The new Foster's owners were always so kind to our family and we tried to return the favor with purchases in partial thanks for the bathrooms. I read online the building was a former grand hotel of sorts. Much as I love Dunkin's, not sure the world needs another chain coffee shop as much as it does small businesses that enable small towns to survive.

    What I've heard from Twin Mountain residents is that it will be rebuilt.

    I pulled in yesterday and the owner was out in the lot and said they were closed for renovations.

    Hopefull it will be open renovated with a Dunkin. Gas Station type lousey coffee can't compete. Either cold,bitter,weak or just doesn't taste good. Dunkin will bring good jobs and good coffee and other items. Open with good hours.

    I travel out West alot and miss Dunkin so much at times. They're non existant. Better then Starbucks in our view.

    There is a Dunkin going in Colebrook.

    Sad to say the Fosters building is a "white elephant" It may have some minor historical significance but renovation by a match is probably the best option. The location is prime.

    I had a great breakfast at YaYa's a few weeks ago with a fine cup of coffee. Plus on that sunny and warm April morn I enjoyed it out on their deck.

    Try it, you'll like it! And they sell gas.

    Given that ATV season up north is opening up next week and summer season is right on its heels it would be surprising for Fosters to be closed voluntarily for a major rebuild. Sometime "closed for renovations" is code for other events.

    YaYas deli has been reliable the times I have stopped, basic deli fare done well but nothing spectacular. The convenience store in general is sparse on selection for drinks and snacks and I expect the 1/10th of mile detour north on RT3 is too much of a diversion for those heading south Catalanos fare is generally a step up from YaYas with a corresponding step up in price but they tend to get backed up on weekends so waits can be long. Of course Catalanos had a run of a new operator every year for several years so the menu and quality would change year to year. If I am headed home up to Gorham, I usually delay the urge and head up the Old Corner Store in Jefferson for the ubiquitous pizza slices post hike
