I had an egg sandwich which was amazing, exactly what I was hoping for. My friend had a lemon muffin situation that was kind of salty and had rosemary or something else in it that was not what he was expecting, but I had a...More

While the soup and sandwich fare here is about average and sometimes pretty good, the service staff is largely incompetent and they make just plain terrible coffee. They should just quit offering coffee. Having gone here a few times, I variously ordered Espresso (so acidic...More

We went to the Manna for brunch on a Saturday. It wasn't what we expected. But, it turned out to be better than expected in a different way. We assumed it would be table service. Instead, it was order at the counter and they brought...More
