A great cafe located right in the historic Waumbec building of the Amoskeag Millyard, serves up delicious breakfasts and fantastic lunches, perfect for on the go, or catching up with a friend over coffee! With new specials daily, you can warm up with their hearty soups or keep it light with their fresh salads! The Waterworks Cafe has something for everyone, and we wanted to share that with you!
You cannot go wrong with any option at the Waterworks Cafe, but one of our favorites is the Over Night French Toast made with cubes of bread, cinnamon, raisin, Grand Marnier berry salad, whipped cream and a side, of course, of maple syrup! Yum! Craving a little something more? Try their Breakfast Burger , a char grilled burger with an over easy egg, smoked bacon, mushrooms, caramelized onions, tomatoes, baby spinach and Cheddar cheese on a soft brioche bun! You’ll be fueled up for the rest of the day with this Breakfast Burger!
Grab a lunch to go, or hang out for a while at the Waterworks cafe, serving up one of our guilty pleasures, the Grown-Up Grilled Cheese made with melted Gruyère, Provolone and Cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, and tomatoes served on Texas toast! Looking for something with some greens? They have that too, with their Kale Power Salad made with baby kale, blueberries, carrots, red quinoa, dried cranberries, dried apricots, edamame and toasted sunflower seeds tossed in a delicious wild berry vinaigrette! Just looking at it will make you feel healthy!
Of course, the Waterworks Cafe has a great selection of cold brew coffees, espressos, lattes and even fruit smoothies! If you are a latte lover like me, try their Tidewater Latte made with espresso, steamed milk, maple and butter pecan! You won’t regret this decision! Not a coffee lover? Try their Hot Chocolate made with decadent Ghirardelli chocolate and whipped cream! The perfect drink for a cold day in Manchester!
