Concierge.com's insider take:
A hangover does not mix well with a flight of steep stairs, a long line, and a hot room. But once you finally get seated at this Manchester café, all is well again. Scrutinizing the expansive menu—wild-turkey hash, lingonberry pain perdu, Cajun frittata, red flannel omelets—may hurt your head a bit, but the venison blueberry sausage and fresh-squeezed orange juice will sort you out. As you wait, look jealously at the Appalachian Trail through-hikers, tourists, and flannel-clad Vermonters who are busy tucking into their own heaping plates of grub. Some of them are probably hungover, too.
Open Mondays through Fridays 7 am to 12 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 7 am to 1 pm.
