Great for a relaxing cup of coffee and a snack!

This place is always a comfortable place to go and have a great cup of coffee or great bowl of soup. They have awesome sandwiches, and a great bakery department too, but I usually find myself checking out the book I just bought with a hot cup of coffee in one of those great chairs upstairs!

I've been getting high quality quiches, soup, bakery products at Spiral Press since they opened several years ago in a corner of the Northshire Bookstore. As a non-meat eater, I've always been able to find a lunch combination here. I hope it was just an "off" day. We got food to go, were thirty miles away when we stopped to... More

Grew up in manchester, just tried spiral press for first time and I was totally disappointed. We got the Irish cream cake which had this awful taste to it and the filling wasn't even fully mixed. We also got a sandwich and panini. For the price we paid, we expected a lot more. Will not be going back.

Manchester is a beautiful place to stop by. The atmosphere is great. Nice gardens & shops around the main street. Beaware, price are high! Anyway, we found this lovely spot to take a break and grab something to eat. First, the place is great! You order from the main desk and then grabbing a table upstairs on the second floor.... More

When visiting Manchester, Vermont, make sure you stop in to check out the Spiral Press Cafe. Wide assortment of goodies to choose from and the best part is that you can enjoy your coffee in the adjacent reading area. Internet is available.

This place is awesome! The cafe seemed great, as it offered sandwiches etc. along with coffee/hot chocolate/tea. There was a large seating area around the corner as well. Workers were very friendly, plus there was an awesome book store attached to it!! I just wish we had more time to spend here and it was in the hometown I lived... More

This short order cafe is part and parcel to the Northshire Book Store so you can order a great lunch and then walk upstairs to the dining room and wait to be served. While you are waiting you can take a book or magazine from the bookstore and read to your heart's content. Try not to dribble on the new... More

It's not just a corner of the bookstore take-out place, there is a large dining room on the second level. Great little find in Manchester Center. We needed lunch on a cold, wet November day. The roasted red pepper bisque with Gouda deliciously hit the spot. The club wrap was also very good. Great place for lunch, then browse through... More
