Looked up great salad places in Portsmouth and so glad we picked this place! We shared the Waldorf salad for a light early lunch and it was delicious! Great outdoor seating and very cute little store inside!

I was looking forward to getting a matcha this morning. I show up around 7:10. The person there (possibly the owner) made me feel like I was really imposing on him by ordering a drink. I asked if they had any pastries, as advertised, and...he blew me off. After he made my drink he put it on the counter with a dismissive “here.” Oh well, guess I won’t bother them anymore! Oh, the latte? Meh.More

I frequent the Goods 2 or 3 times per week. They have amazing egg sandwiches made fresh when you order. There are a multitude of options of how you can get it made. I like it on an english muffin or bagel. You can add...whatever you want like bacon or sausage or spinach just to name a few. What is appreciated about this is some establishments have egg sandwiches that are pre made or scrambled eggs. This is a flavorful, delicious fried egg not scrambled and not pre made. I have also had their turkey sandwich and chicken salad wrap. Both are fresh and simple, yet the taste is uniquely flavorful with quality ingredients. This is the perfect place for a quick breakfast or lunch. The service is friendly and the owner very personable. The atmosphere is relaxed and laid back. There are stools or a couch as options for sitting and relaxing. I recommend for easy, reasonably priced, scrumptious breakfast or lunch!More

Cute little place, food was very good and the woman who brought our food to us was quite friendly (maybe the owner?). Unfortunately the man who initially took our order was not. Maybe he was having a bad day. We went in for breakfast at...around 10:30 a.m. My husband asked “are you still serving breakfast?” Instead of a friendly “yep, we serve breakfast all day!” he said “well, it’s only 10:30” in a sarcastic tone. Not sure where that came from! We ordered (at the counter) sat down and I went looking for the restroom. Door locked, so asked for the key. Same guy pointed and said “on the corner.” I didn’t see it so he walked over (three steps), with apparent annoyance, and showed me. The key was literally camouflaged (taped to a tree twig, leaves and all). I’m not sure why he was so annoyed with me. :( I would go back for the food (would love to try the lunch menu) but with some trepidation.More

We had a great breakfast at the Goods last weekend. The highlight was the brooklyn-style gluten free bagel! The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten allergies and helpful when ordering. Coffee was great too, and the ambiance is fun and cozy.

The Goods is a busy, cozy café and market on the Vaughan Mall closer to Congress Street than to Hanover Street. It serves breakfast all day with foods such as bacon and eggs, egg sandwiches, bagels, and pastries. It has more extensive menu selections for...lunch which include wraps, subs, pizza slices, whole pizzas, and salads. The Goods also offers a wide variety of beverages from coffees and teas to all kinds of soft drinks, juices, smoothies, beer, and wine. The décor was very typical of a fashionable café/coffee bar. It had a counter with high stools, a counter in the front window with high stools, and a cushioned settee with three wooden crates standing on end to function as a coffee table. On my visit, I got a decaf coffee and a toasted asiago bagel with cream cheese. With tax, the total was $4.80. I fixed my coffee at the coffee station. Then, I sat in the front window on the settee and enjoyed the coffee which was very good. It was about a 20-minute wait for my food. The bagel was toasted lightly ~ just the way I like mine. It was only warm. I’ve had thicker bagels than this one. The portion of cream cheese on it was quite skimpy. I was not impressed with any part of it. My overall experience at The Goods was good. I rate it at 3.75. The coffee and the ambiance created by the décor and arrangement of the market goods contributed greatly to the well-above-average rating. I can recommend stopping by far a snack and a beverage when looking for those items in the Vaughan Mall vicinity. If you found this review helpful, please click THANK below.More

I stopped by for the first time and ordered their cubano sandwich. The wait time was a bit long, but the sandwich was worth the wait -- it was delicious. It would be nice if they offered a few chips or pickles to go with...their sandwiches. There's an outside eating area that's very pleasant in nice weather.More

Loved the fresh food and espresso. Only a few places to sit buy a chill atmosphere. We had soup and sandwich/vegetable curry for lunch with our lattes. They also sell truffles, which by the look of the place are fresh made in house. Also, snacks,...beer, wine and some food stuffs. Convenient to the downtown hotels and Portwalk Place.More

The Goods really is good. I love supporting non-chain establishments, and this is a great example of one. Everyone who works there is friendly and most things that you could want from a café and small market are there. A big pro is that breakfast...is served all day, and that a lot of the food is locally-sourced. The design of The Goods is really cute too. It's a perfect location for this type of establishment. I went there for the first time with a few friends for bagels, breakfast sandwiches, etc. and smoothies/tea and though there was a little bit of a line for the breakfast rush, we didn't have to wait more than 10 minutes to get everything. By the smell and taste of the food, I could tell it was made to order, which was refreshing. I have gone there multiple times after that, and it's been just as good every time. I love the idea of take-home pre-cooked meals, it makes it so easy to have healthy meals regularly! All in all, it's such a cute, fun place (with ample parking just across the walkway!). (If you read my recommendations, you'll see I could eat here every meal of the day and be absolutely happy)More
