French country decor awaits you at this quaint little restaurant. Many different Breakfast items, waffles, pancakes done a little differently, but the usual fare as well. You won't be disappointed!

My husband enjoyed a delicious omelet and I could not believe the eggs over salmon and thick sourdough toast! Everything was delicious, service was quick and polite. A special touch was the option of "pumpkin spice coffee" as an alternate to regular brew - very nice for those enjoying the autumn foliage!

After a terrible lunch experience in Manchester the day before, our hotel recommended this spot. We sat outside in the fall sun, and it was wonderful. Reasonably priced, great food, and accommodating with food allergies/restrictions. Cash or check only, so be prepared!

Stopped here as soon as arrived in Manchester. Saw the good ratings. Typical cafe type restaurant with very good homestyle cooking. We had chili and Pastramil sandwiches. All were very good. Good the a "pop in" lunch.

The owner of a local gift shop highly recommended Little Rooster Cafe, and she could not have been more accurate in her praise of this charming little restaurant. The decor is very pleasant – with a rooster theme – but not cutesy. The service was friendly and welcoming, attentive but not in an overwhelming way which can detract from a... More

My wife and I were traveling to Vermont and we stumbled on this little place driving through Manchester. The omelet I had was incredible with ham pesto tomato, and fresh mozzarella. The eggs were fluffy and perfectly cooked.
