Enjoy gourmet tapas-style dining on the historic Café Lafayette Dinner Train!

Tapas-style dining on “the restaurant with the constantly changing view.”

This two-hour, 20-mile round trip will take you on a spur of the historic Boston and Maine Railroad laid in the late 1800’s to serve the historic “Grand” Hotels of the region. The Café Lafayette train cars offer spectacular views of the picturesque Pemigewasset River with its surrounding fields and forests. Keep your eyes peeled for moose, deer and bear while waving to canoeists and kayakers floating lazily down the river.

*Artisan bread and cheese plate – breads, crackers, gourmet cheeses and fresh fruit
*Mediterranean-style stuffed dates – gorgonzola and roasted pecans stuffed dates wrapped with prosciutto, paired with chorizo and mascarpone stuffed dates wrapped in apple-wood smoked bacon
*Papaya and mixed greens salad with an orange champagne vinaigrette
*Thin-sliced marinated grilled flat iron steak over potato scallion pancake with lemon aioli and sweet onion compote
*French toast pound cake topped with ice cream and salted maple caramel sauce

The popular 1952 Pullman Planetarium car, the Granite Eagle, is an unusual tri-level car with an upper observation DOME that also has windows fore and aft, giving the diner views forwards and back while the car is underway. The Indian Waters car is an exquisite 1924 Pullman-Standard Victorian Coach, filled with brass, stained glass and deeply aged woods.

Regular tickets $90 | VIP tickets in the Dome and the Antique Car $99
