What a gem nestled in downtown Manchester. In Manhattan these traditional home-made treats would easily sell for double the price. Not a bad choice here. I sampled 4 different desserts -- all fresh and excellent.

Wonderful food. Chicken Schnitzel is excellent and comes with extraordinary vegetable sides. Chicken Goulash also excellent. Also pastries. Family run. Also, check out the paintings of cats in the alley just outside the restaurant.
