Papa Lennon’s name makes it sound like the pizza place by your high school, and like most small town pizza shops, there are some hits and misses on the menu. The pizzas are generally pretty solid - especially the Thai Chicken, with comes with carrots and peanut sauce - but the non-pizza items are the real highlights. They have a great beet salad with goat cheese and candied walnuts, and the chicken parm sandwich is heavy, very flavorful, and exactly what you want after a day pretending you’re a person who hikes. You’ll also be very happy to find the great, enclosed side patio with a fountain on it, which will look very appealing to dunk your head in after your six-mile hike.
