Cozy, small cafe. Very good sandwiches. Friendly help. Good view of the bay in Manchester. Relax, talk, or just eat. Go there. Give it a try.

I visit Beach Street for breakfast occasionally. It's not fancy, but the food is always good, and the staff is nice. If you're looking for a simple breakfast before heading the hill to the beach, it's definitely worth a stop.
