This is a great place for a quick bite when you've got kids. The bagels and spreads were tasty and fresh, the coffee was good, and their brownies are delicious. Plus they use locally-sourced ingredients and they compost and recycle. What makes this place really great is their kids' seating area which has a family-style kids table, chalkboard, puzzles, and...

My husband and I travel to the Keene area once or twice each year. We eaten at the Works a few times. It's a great place to have a semi-quick breakfast or lunch. With a casual atmosphere, including indoor and outdoor seating, and wifi connection, the Works advertises their organic ingredients. My husband and I each had breakfast sandwiches; mine... More

Had the clam chowder and it was amazing. They are a basic cafe. They have bagels, sandwiches, soups and more. They had good service. The prices were a little higher that expected, but still worth it. Good place to go if in Keene, NH.

Been visiting this; café for over 20 years and still enjoy a great plain bagel. They expanded to excellent sandwiches, etc. In the summer it's a great place to sit outside and watch activities in downtown Keene, in the winter a great place to warm up with a bagel and hot cup of coffee.

I am a regular customer at the Concord store so when I needed a quick bite in Keene, this store seemed like a natural choice. The food was good. The maple walnut blondie was exceptionally wonderful. I thought that the service was not welcoming or friendly. Maybe I shouldn't compare to Concord but why have a chain if there isn't... More

This cafe was the perfect stop for our family as we headed north to Vermont. We stopped here late morning and some family members had breakfast sandwiches and bagels while others decided it was close enough to lunchtime to indulge in a delicious panini or sandwich. Quick service, delicious food, relaxing cafe environment and a local establishment with fresh food... More
