Great sandwiches, healthy family lunch

Perfect lunch spot for a break when enjoying the Northshire book store, and the wifi is helpful when it works. Families sit at long picnic tables, enjoying BLTs, lemonade, iced tea, and other completely home made food. This is the real deal.

The best country bookshop ever. Lots of wonderful books as well as one of a kind gifts. The bookshop is attached to the Spriral Press which has very delicious lunch, breakfast and desserts.

While this shop has good baked goods it is more than made up for by the horrible attitude of the staff and the inconsistency of their espresso drinks. Through multiple visits we have seen that something as simple as an Americano can confuse the baristas. The manager, an ogre-like unsmiling woman is abrupt and rude to both customers and staff....

Picked up Gazpacho for take-out dinner. The best Gazpacho I have ever had. The backed goods looked amazing. I bought the premade blueberry oatmeal in a cup for next day's breakfast- just add hot water and it was REALLY good. Went back the next day for lunch and was so busy I had to go elsewhere-couldn't even get in the... More

The restaurant/cafe is part of the very quaint book store located in the center of Manchester. The options are plenty. It does get very crowded during lunch time and the service slows down. Prices are approx $10-$12 for lunch.

I went to the café several days this week for lunch, breakfast, and afternoon snacks while my son attended camp. I found the food to be tasty and the staff to be very helpful and pleasant. The iced tea is delicious and the croissants are fabulous! I also had the soup and it was very good. The seating upstairs is... More

Nice cafe inside of a wonderful bookstore. Nice selection of menu items, but not inexpensive! The food was good, the service was a little slow and a little curt.

Connected to the book store and there may be a line but the sandwiches are worth the wait. Fairly fast to get served and good spaces to eat inside or outside on a nice day. Desserts looked awesome but I opted for the ice cream at their location right next door.
