Happened by, not sure what we wanted but had noticed a lot of people at lunchtime. Small, intimate atmosphere, maybe 6 tables in the dining room and some seating when you walk in. Delicious baked goods greet you (and we were pleased to see they were under covers-one of my pet peeves). I had the most outstanding Beef Stroganoff and... More

My husband and I took his mother here for lunch this past Saturday. We all had soup and sandwiches. The food was very good and tasted fresh. We sat outside at their patio area. The service was friendly, just a little slow. That might be due to the fact that the food appears to be made to order, so it's... More

Beginning with the watermelon, mint, ginger ale, and Pinot Grigio cocktails, the lunch started in a good way. Cocktails were similar to a very good mojito. The grilled romaine salad was perfect for a warm afternoon in Manchester. Wonderful flavors and an attractive presentation. The balsamic vinaigrette dressing was excellent. My wife had the chicken salad and was as pleased... More

We had finished a great afternoon at nearby Hildene and needed some lunch. We drove past and thought it might be a good place to get something light. We were delighted by the amazing menu. The sandwiches were anything but ordinary! They clearly use the highest quality ingredients and put a LOT of thought into the creation of the sandwiches.... More

Spontaneous roadside spot, lunch was so good. Shared a salad and a bean/avocado dish thing that was delicious. Loved all the vegetarian options. No complaints. Service was a bit slow and could use some tightening up since it wasn't at all just but we were in no rush and enjoyed the beautiful day outside.

crepes are a speciality and mine delicious. Fresh squeezed orange juice too. Can't wait to go back and try a lunch and dinner.

This place was recommended by The Palmer House and we couldn't have been happier with the meal. My daughter ordered the grilled North Country Turkey Sandwich and I had the Smokey Blues Salad. I think that was the best salad I've ever had. My daughter (13) LOVED her sandwich. Great service, unique ambiance in the Land of the Outlet, we... More

Food was decent. Didn't love the abundance of Gorgonzola usage as that's a rather strong cheese u either love or hate. They did have lots to chose from on breakfast and lunch menu. We had lavender goat salad and a panini along w pumpkin bar. The lavender goat cheese was very infused w lavender. Would've like another medallion along w.... More

This was the second time that my husband and I visited Ponce Bistro. Our first trip here was so good that we couldn't wait to come back a second time. In fact we are now planning to bring other friends from out of state to share dinner here as well. The food is exceptional, with a lot of attention to... More

We visited this place twice during our weekend trip to Manchester. Once for lunch and once for dinner. The menu is a very pleasant change from what you see in most restaurants. There is a great selection of all different fusion type foods. The owners and staff were all very pleasant. One of the owners, who lived in the same... More
