One less breakfast place in Manchester, NH

A friend and I have a weekly date for breakfast. Every other week, we always ate at Jewell & the Beanstalk. We loved the variety of items on the menu, the creative specials, the unique atmosphere, and the friendly staff.

Recently, Jewell had been going through some changes, one of which eliminated breakfast on weekdays. We decided to try the owner's (Amber) new restaurant/catering business, Seed to Stalk. While we placed our order, we asked about Jewell and were saddened to learn that it has closed.

While the food at Seed to Stalk was excellent, the setting (a cafe in an office building) didn't have the same comfy feel for a morning of food, coffee, and conversation. Sad to say, but it seems that my friend and I will be seeking a new restaurant for our breakfasts.

Jewell & the Beanstalk

  1. Is this the person who is opening the "grocery" store on Elm Street?

    1. re: whs

      Amber owned Jewell and the Beanstalk. Her mom is opening the "grocery" store.

    2. You may want to drown your sorrows at the bright new Purple Finch in the Woodbury Court Mall in Bedford (across from Macy's). Very good food & service.

      1. Republic serves a nice breakfast, and there's Julien's on Bridge Street.

        1. Republic has a wonderful brunch. Jillian's Corner Kitchen and Bridge Cafe does too. Sad to see Jewell go.

          1. I haven't tried brunch at Republic or Bridge Cafe. I have been to the Purple Finch and Julien's. Both of them are enjoyable, but they're missing the atmosphere from Jewell, and the delicious cran-walnut bread.
