The Kenapoca-mocha

As I sit surrounded by warm fuzzies in the brainchild of good Manchester people, slowly enjoying my perfect beef & barley soup and sweet iced coffee, I can't help but think...ha! I got to finally experience a cool Manchester thing first before other people who are cooler than I as they generally do way way cooler stuff than I. I am willing to sacrifice and visit this place every day after teaching or studying with a good book and no cares except which drink to choose.

I have already decided that I must visit this wonderful place (really, you can feel the goodness oozing out of the walls, sifting through the air, settling around your stress-tense mind and muscles) with Ben. And, I will deviate from my journey so as to swing by this happy nook as often as possible. I.e., hey, we're going to Indianapolis...I think that we should go via N Manchester!

For this new coffee, soup and broken bread cafe, I want to move back to N Manchester. In fact, poking around on the Manchester Realty website, I see that the Hospitality House is still for sale, along with the Fruitt Basket Inn (I think??). Anyone want to join me in some crazy, never-going-to-happen B&B venture so that I can move back?

I hear that the pumpking chili is fabulous as well. I can't imagine how it wouldn't be.

I am oh-so-jealous that you got to be there already-- I rearranged my summer plans to stop through the midwest (and I am not making this up) solely so that I can see the Kenopochamocha. (Visiting family comes secondary to community run coffee shops). Wanna meet me there?

Ooo, and I am so down for running a B&B with you.

Mmmm, pumpkin chili.

I have been looking forward to going there too when we get back! I am sure Megan would like it too! BTW I like your new profile picture :)
