It was a darn shame to hear of Milton’s closing this past fall (you can revisit it here), but when one door closes another opens (eh? eh?), and within no time at all a place called Loopy’s promised to open before the end of the year. True to their word, the owners – who were previously connected to Milton’s – opened Loopy’s in late November at the base of the 9th & New Hampshire apartment building. I have been curious to sneak a peek (and a nibble) of this new hot spot, and was happy to give it a whirl while my family was in town this past Friday.

Lunch menu, clean and concise.

Bagged granola, coffee, and to-go items, too.

Once we were seated inside, I quickly noticed a few things about the space. The high ceiling is fantastic; it makes the space feel much bigger than it is, and with the addition of the window display hanging down above the bar area it’s quite an exciting sight. Also, natural light floods the small interior – which can seat approximately 30 – making it a cozy environment. With the mixture of dark wood, whites, and silvers, the space also emits a chic, clean feel. This is bolstered by the fact that you can see into the kitchen from the dining area, which always makes a restaurant seem more inviting.

Prepared for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Open kitchen & fierce masonry oven.

My sister-in-law was particularly interested in some doughy goodness over the lunch hour, which made Loopy’s a great option since its lunch menu specializes in “masonry oven flatbreads and pizzas.” Their menu is straightforward and simple, offering enough variety but not overloading you with too many choices. The guys ordered a beer (local and Belgian style beers available), and for the meal, I decided to stick with a classic pepperoni pizza, and the hubs went with a herb and aged goat cheese pizza.

Perfect pepperoni pizza.

Herb & aged goat cheese. Yum!

The pizzas came to us hot and ready to devour! The dough, in particular, was excellent. Our party of four had no troubles eating every last bite of our personal pizzas. And with each pizza hitting the price point around $10, it’s a cheap, quick lunch if you’ve you got a busy afternoon ahead of walking Mass. I look forward to stopping by Loopy’s often. Beyond their flatbreads and pizzas, their online menus boast a nice selection of coffees for the morning, alcoholic drinks for the evening, and some scrumptious sounding desserts for the after-meal sweet tooth.
