“My favorite local sandwich shop 😋 they’re great for breakfast and lunch.

The beet Reuben is good, the tofu club, the green heron, etc.

Their coffee and baked goods are also delicious”

“Absolutely love The Nest Kitchen! I always tell myself that I should try something different on the menu, but I just cannot get enough of the Turkey Apple sandwich! It hits all the right notes. The sharpness from the cheddar, sweetness and crunch from the apple, the pepperiness from the arugula, and the bit of spice from the house made sriracha mayo. There is just the right ratio of turkey and other ingredients between the thinly sliced and lightly toasted sourdough bread. All I have to say is…YUM! I can vouch for the chai spiced sugar cookies and coffee drinks too. Takeout is packaged well and ready when I arrive and the staff is always friendly. Such a great addition to downtown Hanover! Highly recommend.

Needed to have a vegan menu for an event at work and The Nest had many really great options!  Amber and her crew did a great job and everyone loved the food, whether they were vegan or not!

Really interesting sandwiches. Great vegetarian options.  My daughter and I shared the bbq tempeh sandwich and the caprese. They did not disappoint.  Flavorful and fresh!  Size was perfect for our appetite.

Wow! Stopped in Hanover for a quick lunch and found The Nest. Best road trip find ever. If you’re looking for fresh, delicious, locally sourced food, this is a great choice. Their Roasted Beet Reuben was out of this world savory. Grilled cheese with apple and bacon also a winner. We’re looking forward to stopping in on our next road trip.
