This coffee shop and store combination is one of our favorite places to hit up in Manchester. It is one of the most unique and vibrant spots I’ve visited. Fig + Sparrow is divided by a boutique store in the front and the café in the rear. With a sense of “togetherness” to the restaurant, a community table sits at the front with separate seating hidden in the back. Lining the walls are beautiful artisan products for sale: cards, crafts, soaps, mugs, kitchen utensils, etc. Everything is so beautiful and unique, you’ll struggle not to purchase it all. wpid-2015-08-06-05.17.27-1.jpg.jpegwpid-2015-08-06-05.17.20-1.jpg.jpegwpid-2015-08-06-05.17.21-1.jpg.jpeg

The menu at Fig + Sparrow is not vegan, although it does offer vegetarian and vegan delights, as well as some gluten free. Vegan and gluten free options are clearly marked on the menu by a (ve) or (gf). The soup is always gluten free and vegan, and very highly recommended. While most vegetarian spots in Manchester close very early, Fig + Sparrow is conveniently open until 7 pm, although they do stop serving food around 6:30. As they are a brekafa

The soy milk latte was the perfect caffeine fix.
