I do shows at the Stone Church every now and again, and I always make a point to get to town early enough to hit Crackskulls. Great coffee, great selection of used books. Used bookstores are getting rarer and rarer, so this place is a damn gem.

CrackSkulls is less a coffee shop and more a support group for struggling writers. The owner is a peach. Two of the counter girls have the same name and that ma...kes it easier to remember. Check Plus! Sometimes you can even chat with a pretty girl. No Joke! They go in there and just stand around sometimes. One time I saw a famous comedian there too! I like the Hazel nut. Sometimes when I'm feeling crazy I get a red eye. Which is a shot of expresso in a coffee! Crazy right?!? I know. I know.... See More

Crackskulls is a quaint charming cozy little hidden gem located in downtown Newmarket, NH. The owner is sweet, warm and friendly as is the ambience of this coff...eehouse/ bookshop. I've only been here 2 or 3 times but each time I come back it feels like home. Their White Heron Chai latte is divine. If you have yet to drop by, please do, it's surely worth your while. Even though I'm living on the Outer Banks .. Seacoast Maine and New Hampshire will always remain close to my heart and my second home. See More

Crackskulls is an awesome local small business. Their menu features a wide array of coffees on tap, specialty beverages, desserts, and bagels. I'm particularly ...fond of the vegetable cream cheese and hazelnut coffee blend.

The atmosphere is homey and inviting; the proprietor is friendly and welcoming. If you enjoy both coffee and supporting local small businesses, then I highly recommend that you give Crackskulls a go.

Most of our review of Crackskulls is now online, but to get the full story, you'd have to buy our book too! Great coffee shop.

Next to the faculty lounge in Ham Smith, Crackskulls is the thing I miss the most about UNH.

Prose, Poetry and Popsicles
March 6

The first Tuesday is upon us and PP&P invites writers of all stripes to an open mic @CRACKSKULL'S again from 6:30-8. Your host here is fighting off a cold, but hopeful all will be well in time. Meantime, amid all the uproar of late, did anyone, the press or in confirmation hearings, question how our new Attorney General happened to sport such an impressive pair of horns?

Monday, Feb. 27 at 7pm, the Stone Church and our own Larry Doyle will be presenting the full film as the inauguration of the Church's "Mindful Mondays," a monthly presentation of socially relevant videos and discussion. This is a free event and open to all ages. If you know of Mr. Rustin, please come and add to the conversation. If you don't know him, he is the civil rights activist J. Edgar Hoover didn't want you to know about and the man who was literally behind Martin Luther KIng, Jr.
