A Bookseller's Blotter

blue sparrow kitchenWe are thrilled to welcome Amber Boland and Blue Sparrow Kitchen to the Norwich Square! It is wonderful to have people of all ages hanging out again: eating, visiting, and playing around the bookstore - both the real one and the child-sized version on the lawn!

Amber was born and raised in NH and lives in Lyme. Her husband, Kurt, a property manager and contractor, built the welcoming and comfortable space in the former Alice’s/Allechante/NS Cafe location. Sip your latte at the counter or enjoy lunch with friends at one of the small tables - inside or out!

n sq & little houseThe still-evolving family-friendly menu includes freshly made sandwiches, soups, salads, smoothies, desserts, and milkshakes! They also plan to have a selection of prepared foods, including dinner-to-go. They are focusing on locally sourced ingredients as much as possible - cheeses and meats as well as baked goods.

And they are open great hours: Monday - Friday 6:30 am - 5:00 pm and Saturday 10:30 am - 8:00 pm. Please join us in giving them a hearty welcome! ~ Liza
