“Warm Welcome, Needs Polish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

I stopped by here for brunch about 11 am, jet-lagged and in need of breakfast. Parking here is easy: there's a big lot in addition to the street parking. The woman at the register was friendly and the menu quite varied. I had the special, a quiche with meat in it.

The quiche was ok. Same for the salad that accompanied it. The serving was a bit on the small side, but in fairness, that's probably healthier.

Coffee was self-serve, which was nice.

In a town with many very distinctive places to eat, the Roundabout offers decent food and a friendly atmosphere. The word to sum it up is "average."

If I were to give them advice about how to improve it, I'd say lose the flimsy plastic chairs, and build on the friendly atmosphere that I found there. If the food and the furniture were as comfortable as the welcome, it would make a world of difference.

“Another restaurant in a favorite location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

We've been coming to the Manchester outlets for years and always return to this location which has had at least 3 restaurants in it since we started. This one features quality fare with daily specials and baked goods. The proprietors are friendly and attentive. We enjoyed our lunch and will undoubtedly be back. The French dip was lovely, the meatloaf sandwich was filling and the spicy chicken wrap was exactly that! We hope this version stays!
