Sunday brunch at Peddler’s Daughter in Nashua, New Hampshire

For the second Sunday in a row, we traveled to Nashua, New Hampshire, for Mass at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church. By the time Mass was over, we were quite hungry, so we decided to find someplace to eat near the church. There was an Irish pub a couple minutes away called Peddler’s Daughter, and we found some decent reviews online. Since there’s only so many clam plates and roast beef sandwiches one can eat in a week, we decided an Irish pub was a good way to break up the monotony.

The pub was already pretty busy when we arrived, and it got even busier as it approached the start of the Patriots game at 1 pm. We were promptly seated at a cozy table with a view of the bar. In addition to the usual pub fare, they offered us a brunch menu, and although it wasn’t initially what we had in mind for lunch, that’s how we decided to order.

I ordered a corned beef hash cake with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce, which was an interesting twist on eggs Benedict. The presentation was lovely, and it was tasty. My only complaint was the cake was a bit too much potato and a bit too little corned beef, but I’d happily order it again.

Kathryn ordered a brunch burger, which was really just a regular burger with an egg on it. But since Kathryn likes her eggs poached, the egg arrived on the side, at which point exactly nothing differentiated it from a regular burger.

Kathryn shared her fries, which we garnished with a delicious house-made ketchup. I’d consider going back just for an order of fries because the ketchup was so good.

A delightful brunch at an Irish pub in New Hampshire … who would have thought?
