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

Stopped in here twice in the past week, for the first times ever. Gem of a place. Great bagels, sandwiches, and coffee. Very pleasant and efficient staff. Loved the little area for the kids with their own table and chalk board. Whenever we travel through Keene it'll be our place to go. Love that they source some items locally.
