I am very sorry to hear this! We loved coming to you when we lived there. Your breakfast’s were the best! My favorite were your waffles with fresh berry compote and farm fresh eggs.

We’ve always loved going to Manna. Great food, wonderful service, lots of special memories.

Annette says,

I’m sorry to hear this…Manna’s Cafe is one of my favorite breakfast spots. The pancakes remind me so much of the ones my dad used to make for me as a child and adult.
