Stopped in for a sandwich and some soup to escape the cold for a bit. Ordered a hot panini and a bowl of tortilla soup that came with the best baked chips I've ever had. The food was better than average and the prices were very reasonable. A nice escape from the cold if you are downtown.

First let me preface this as NOT a review of their food and service. I went in for a pastry and a cup of coffee only. They had what they called nut encrusted brownies under a glass dome priced at $3.75. The portion under glass was decent so I ordered a piece. I became suspicious when the waitress delivered my...

I have eaten at Baked at least 50 times since they have been in Manchester. The servers are great but the quality and speed in the kitchen is very inconsistent. Sometimes the quality of the salads is not so great...brown avocados to name one. The kitchen can also be VERY slow during down times. They used to make their own... More

This place seems to sometimes vary with the quality of the sandwiches it's okay you get like a lunch card for you can get a free lunch after so many punch holes it's like a more upscale cooler Panera but it's cheaper than Panera and it's better

Excellent food and drinks. It was a little pricey, but worth if for the quality. My only complaint is I had to wait awhile for my drink. The bartender was taking a break, and no one seemed to care that I was waiting. So service could improve, but food and atmosphere was great.

I really like their salads, unfortunately they sometimes drop the ball. I sometimes wonder if the quality depends on who is making them. When they use the freshest ingredients and don't forget anything, they are delicious. I have had some nice iced teas - great variety of choices.

We eat there 3 days on four. Everything we tried was good, fresh and tasty. It's a must go place in Manchester.

I visit here every once and awhile for a hot mocha and a caramel bar. My boyfriend and I are addicts! The food here is ok. I once ordered a quiche for breakfast and it was served cold. They replaced it for me but it took awhile. My boyfriend was done his food by the time I recieved mine. Other... More
