The Local Moose Café
If you are into eating large in the afternoon, then consider one of Manchester’s nicest cafés. The Local Moose Café takes pride in their organic fare, some of which is even grown in their own greenhouse. Don’t miss the locally sourced pork marinated in a classic Vietnamese sauce for their bánh mì (pictured at left). Of course, you could substitute tofu for the pork and have it spread with vegan mayo. Breakfast sandwiches are layered on buttery brioche with local bacon and free-range eggs. Maple bacon donuts may be the best reason to stop in on Saturday, or maybe the occasional mid-day songfest. Coffee and a host of creative lattes, including a tumeric pumpkin spice for fall, are all fair trade, and sourced from A&E Roastery in Amherst. They are pieces of barista art.
Open Tuesday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
