Best Post Office

To award the Mount Washington Post Office branch Best Post Office is a little self-defeating, as its consistent efficiency relies on its relative obscurity. Tucked away on tiny, dead-end Cottonworth Avenue, with little visible signage from the busier roads, this branch is out of sight, out of mind, so the lines are always short. While Hampden's post office closes for two hours in the middle of the day, leaving parcel-clutching patrons spending their entire lunchbreaks waiting for it to reopen, those in the know head up the road to the Mount Washington branch and are in and out in under 10 minutes, leaving them enough time to grab lunch too.
