I work in nearby downtown Manchester, but prefer to eat somewhere quiet, so i grab lunch here and bring it to the park down the street to eat. There is one table in this place; so they definitely cater to take out orders. I've had the Mediterranean salad, an egg sandwich on a bagel (They do breakfast, too!) the Greek... More

Since I don't live in Manchester, I only discovered The Kitchen recently. There were so many choices of salads, take-home and reheat meals, soups, desserts, etc., I walked out with a bag full of food. Everything I bought was excellent. Stop in and see how many delectable things they have in the small store-front.

This is essentially a take out restaurant. Looks like the specialize in preparing meals you can take home and heat up for dinner. We were there on a Saturday while on a house garden tour, and ate at the one table inside. I had a veggie panini, while my wife had baklava along with a pasta salad and chicken salad.... More

The rotating monthly hot dinner menus are consistently good. Lots of flavor and the pasta is never mushy. I prefer to pick up hot but you must call ahead. They almost always have dinners in the fridge too. My only gripe (and this is small) is I can't order online. That would make this place my 3x a week dinner... More

Dang, this place had nice reviews, so I drove over to have lunch. Only three parking spots out front, but the side street adjacent offers parking. Walked in, expecting tables to be present, did nt matter, the staff was too busy doing "stuff" to even acknowledge me. I stood for a long time, and then, after being ignored I left.... More

This hidden treasure 5 minutes from downtown Manchester has the best home cooked meals to go. If you want a great sandwich, salad or fresh baked good, this is also the place to go.

A little out of the way on River Road, but totally worth it. Food is super fresh and healthy gourmet...plus awesome desserts too. For this visitor from Los Angeles, totally hit the spot!
