In 2014, We started the original Laughing Gull at Singing Beach, a summer beach provisions spot right on the beach. Working in our community was such a rewarding experience and we decided we wanted something more. We wanted to share our love of good food in a casual, inviting cafe environment. So when the opportunity presented itself, we acquired Essen. We took our time to understand what our community loved about Essen, and what they wanted to see from Laughing Gull. Great coffee, fresh bakery items, and friendly faces. We tweaked the menu, trained a new staff and built a culture of service, All so we can work hard and have fun! Right here in Manchester-by-the-Sea.
Connect with free wifi - (In your car, outside the shop!). Or, disconnect and relax with a fresh cup of coffee as you Facetime or Zoom with friends, virtual meetings with clients or colleagues,
