Decided to visit the restaurant without prior booking on our first evening in Manchester. It did look cosy with nice ambience, possibly eating out on the front deck. We dined inside, ordered a Thai green curry. Still not quite sure what it was we were given, not anything remotely "Thai", certainly not a curry, but at least lived up to... More

Had few lunches and dinner at this bistro. Very elegantly decorated and the staff is very cooperative, service is excellent. The food is fabulous, the dishes are original in their ingredient composition but nothing too spicy that will leave you breathless. The dishes are also served in an elegant way- one can immediately see that there is a thought behind... More

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
