Description: At Ponce we specialize in Exquisite Fusion Cuisine. Start the day with a perfect crema latte and flaky French crossaint. By noon the lavendar goat cheese salad beckons, followed by a home brewed cup of chai and our famous chocolate chip cookies. Finally the day is complete over a relaxing candlelight dinner of salmon tarragon bisque and tenderly broiled raspberry chipotle skirt steak, accompanied by a favorite Cabernet that you brought with you.

We had lunch here and loved the atmosphere. The staff is so friendly and the food is excellent. This is now one of our favorites.

Ponce has charm, ambience, great service and a wonderful, diverse and creative menu. The restaurant, located in an old house, only has about 10-12 tables and our favorite, haven eaten here several times, is the table in front of the fireplace. The menu, prepared by chef owner Ron, a former Wall Street player who like others seeking a lifestyle change... More

portions small, sweet potato soup was tasteless and loaded with cheese curds, very strange. To make matters worse service quite slow. Place was empty on a Friday afternoon and evidently the server messed up our order--took 20 minutes to get a cup of soup that was not good

A lovely restaurant; very good food in a comfortable, relaxed setting. The menu is interesting and varied and the staff friendly and helpful. It is obvious that a lot of care is taken with the quality of the food and how it is cooked and presented. There are several good places to eat in Manchester; this is one of them... More

Wonderful experience at this authentic eatery. Feels and tastes as a weekend in the country should be. Make their own meat for sandwiches and the soup was excellent. I am happy to return

The food here is amazing! My husband and I went here for breakfast, and were very pleased with their food. The eggs were so fluffy, and the baguette with butter was very fresh. We got breakfast pinwheel and bacon, egg, cheese crepes, the flavors of both items were rich, strong, but work really well with one and another. I think... More

We were headed to the Little Rooster, which is only open for breakfast and lunch. Alas, there was going to be a fairly long wait at 10:30 am, so we walked next door to the Ponce Bistro, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We were the only ones there on a fall morning. It has only been a few days... More
