He had a great dinner there as well as a beer at the bar. I believe it is one of the best places to eat in Manchester. We have had a great Sunday breakfast there as well several times. My biggest negative about the place is their dining rooms are very noisey. The acoustics of the room seems to amplify... More

Have visited this eatery on several occasions, for brunch, lunch and dinner. Never was disappointed with food or attentive service. 4 and 5 picky women eaters who are all satisfied with everything is the best recommendation of all!

This place was a cute little find in an otherwise sleepy town. It had a lively atmosphere, although the tables were not very comfortable for large parties. The food was very good and the desserts where to die for. I would go again just not with a large group.

First let me tell you that I am vegan but my significant other isn't. We haven't been there for some time and decided to go last weekend. I had the Pad Thai and it was excellent Their meals were also very good. They recommend the eggplant Neapolitan. No cheese thank you but I do remember the taste.

Was looking for a restaurant that had something tasty but healthy to offer and this place nailed it. Do yourself a favor and order that salmon with spaghetti squash. It's delicious.

Food was pretentious. The drinks were ok... We asked the server for a drink we saw in the paper or read about there and she was clueless and didn't have suggestions.

Thank Youotterloveme
