Freshly cooked food each night and linked to the Stamford Motel. A good menu choice at reasonable prices.

Had dinner and breakfast here while staying at the nearby Manchester View Motel. After just two meals it became clear that the restaurant is a real labour of love and that effort is made to do everything the right way, from great service to produce from the garden. Had the Chorizo starter and the Rib Eye Steak, both were excellent.... More

My wife and I made a last-minute dinner reservation once we arrived in town. We got the last table at 7:30 pm. We're glad we could get the reservation. The cafe is unassuming, but has a generally good chef. The chorizo sausage appetizer was quite good. My entree, the filet au poivre, was cooked perfectly. My wife's entree, the pork... More

My wife and I were in Vermont for the weekend and decided our first night to try Nippers due to the good reviews. Very nice people and clean restaurant. We both decided to get burgers and they were very tasty. We asked for their fresh baked rolls which I think we're 50 cents a piece because we didn't really get... More

Nippers Cafe is part of the Stamford Motel, and we ate both dinner and the free breakfast and weren't disappointed. The food is fantastic, and it is very convenient if you're staying at the Stamford Hotel. We tried two different variations on salmon, and both were delicious.

This is an unpretentious little restaurant associated with a typical-looking motel, but the food and service were unexpectedly good, with reasonable prices! Definitely a place to consider if you're in the Manchester area.

The motel exterior didn't prepare us for the generally excellent food at this small restaurant located on 7a about a mile north of Manchester center. We had tickets for the Dorset Playhouse, about 15 minutes away and came at 6 pm. It's too bad we didn't check out their website as they have a 2 for 1 special from 5... More

Our party ate breakfast here after spending the night at the attached motel. The food was very tasty--standard breakfast fare. The pancakes were very good and the half stack is more than plenty.
