I live in town and visit occasionally, but went in today for a bagel and coffee, and must say, they have made a lot of improvements, both to the building itself, seating, and the menu. It really is a gem and we are lucky to have this place in Manchester. I noticed, for instance, they have a soup or salad and half sandwich special every day, which is such a refreshing change from places that just simply overload you with too much food. Its easy to heat healthy here, and it is clear to me they are indeed trying to source their foods locally when possible. My daughter now lives in South America going to school, and we are visiting her in a few weeks, and what she wants us to bring is a dozen bagels from here, that says a lot !

Formally known as "Bagel Works", this is a great spot for both breakfast and lunch. The food is always fresh (did I mention fresh?) and ssooo tasty. Bagels are baked on premises along with a variety of breads. Coffee is certified organic and fair trade. It seems they make an effort to buy as many products as close to the store as possible.
Lunch is sandwiches, panni's, (fresh mozz with spinach, red peppers, pesto is MY favorite) soup or salad. They have those fruit smoothies, but I'm strictly a caffeinated girl.
During the warmer months they have seating overlooking a babbling brook.
Service is walk up to the counter and order, but pretty timely.
