This is a BYOB restaurant. We like this feature because it gives us an opportunity to bring a more-than-acceptable $20 bottle of wine (or two bottles) that would sell for $60 or more in most restaurants and which we usually don't buy. Bring your own...More

This cute little bistro has an excellent lunch menu served in a quiet atmosphere. We were hoping to return for dinner (certainly next time we're in town), as the food was delicious. The menu is adventuresome/unusual, but not frighteningly exotic. Well worth a visit.

If you want delicious food in an eclectic setting, look no further. Everything is made to order and it never disappoints. BYOB is another plus.

We popped in here for lunch and settled into 2 big comfy sofas and ordered our toasted sandwiches - which were delicious along with some coffees. Inside, the decor is very eclectic, but it really works and is very cosy. We spotted the cookies and...More

We stopped in for a quick lunch before traveling to the airport after our long weekend stay in Manchester. A warm and homey place right on the main street, our food was nicely prepared and the hostess was very sweet and helpful.

My wife and I stayed one night as a stop over in Manchester. It was unexpected to find all the high end outlet stores within walking distance of our hotel. Just down the street we decided on Ponce Bistro for dinner. There was only one...More

It is expensive. A piece of lettuce and some cheese and olives costs $18.00. On the other hand, they use produce from local farmers.

At Ponce we specialize in Exquisite Fusion Cuisine. Start the day with a perfect crema latte and flaky French crossaint. By noon the lavendar goat cheese salad beckons, followed by a home brewed cup of chai and our famous chocolate chip cookies. Finally the day is complete over a relaxing candlelight dinner of salmon tarragon bisque and tenderly broiled raspberry chipotle skirt steak, accompanied by a favorite Cabernet that you brought with you.
