We stopped in Manchester to get lunch on our way home from a NH weekend away- lots of places to choose from, but my husband picked the Bridge Cafe. Lots of seating to choose from, although the place was busy. My husband had a Rueben sandwich with fruit salad- which he thought was very good. Our daughter got a grilled... More

I was a little intimidated by the length of the line, but the food was amazing. Worth the very brief wait! We had the veggie and greek chicken wrap. I cannot say enough. The sandwiches were huge and were accompanied by two sides, which were also sizable! I appreciate the fact that you were given several choices of sides. My... More

I eat Bridge Cafe about once a week! Today my chipotle turkey panini was perfect and they gave me two pickles! Also love the vegan vampire fresh made juice to get those extra fruits and vegetables in my diet!

I went here with friends on their recommendation and wow was it worth it. The home made muffins and sandwiches were great. Service was great as well and a nice cafe atmosphere. Would certainly return for lunch.

This place is super cute and the food we ordered was great. My wife had a ham omelette and I had French toast. One warning- the smoothie to curb your hunger is no joke. I had one after breakfast and I didn't want to eat for 48 hours! So much tummy pain!

We order lunch in when we have department meetings during the lunch hour. Bridge Street Cafe delivers right on time and their sandwiches and salads are fantastic. Prices are very reasonable given the fresh and generous portions which includes a side. Very accommodating to dietary needs.

Omelette was so and so, nothing special. Coffee was average at best. Fast and nice servers. Seems like their paninis are the thing to try but was feeling like bfast so went for it and was dissapointed.

The food here is outstanding. Very quick service. However, girlfriend asked for no tomatoes on her wrap, they put tomatoes on the wrap. They did take it back and make a new one, no questions asked and it was quick. Best wrap I've had!

Bridge Cafe has really great sandwich and breakfast options. There's also a multitude of fresh juices and smoothies. It's very bright and straight-forward. The staff is super friendly and although they seem to get pretty busy during lunchtime, they handle the volume and still get great quality food out quickly.
