Lovely Breakfast

Nipper's Cafe has a lovely breakfast in a peaceful and quiet setting. Coffee was fresh and good and the fruit plate was beautifully presented and very fresh. Prices are fair. I look forward to trying the Cafe for dinner next time I'm there

We had read the reviews and we were anticipating a great meal. We are still trying to figure out the other reviews that were so good? The dining room seating was not comfortable as the chairs were too low to the height of the table. We were seated by the window which proved to be a distraction with all the... More

The service was great, the meal expertly prepared and the dessert was home made. If you are in the area do yourself a favor and support this local family owned restaurant.

We were in Manchester on a Saturday night with a party of seven and were having a hard time getting a dinner restaurant. We decided to try Nipper's and were not disappointed. The food was excellent, with interesting specials and lots of locally-sourced produce. I had a salad and the panko shrimp appetizer, but others in my party had burgers... More

How had I missed this place in all my trips to Manchester? We had a lovely dinner on a perfect summer evening on their deck last night. Very good service and delicious food. The menu has all the basics and some nice twists on the classics. We will make this part of the regular rotation!

She was very attentive but did not rush our discussion or meal. Steaks of all sorts were tasty ( I had fillet trio; several others ribeyes salmon was... More

After driving a couple of hours to arrive at our hotel on a Friday evening and seeing all the restaurant parking lots full as we drove through Manchester, we were not very optimistic about getting any kind of decent meal, but I remembered seeing some good reviews for Nipper's, so we decided to give them a try, expecting to find...

We visit Manchester a few times a year and for some reason we hadn't heard of Nippers until our last trip. I am so glad we came here! Nippers is a restaurant &bar attached to the office and private home of the owners of the Stamford Motel. The husband and wife team run the property and do a great job.... More

Nipper's boasts a respectable menu, warm ambiance, impecable service and tasty food. The corn bread was warm right out of the oven, the wine smooth and the steaks were cooked to perfection. The children's menu makes this a great family hangout. Dessert was the end to a very good dinner. I can't wait to come back...

Breakfast was nice, but nothing special. Service was ok. I wouldn't make an effort to go there, but if you are nearby, it's a good place to have breakfast.
