Busy place. The coffee and IronMan breakfast choice was really good. There were 5 of us and all enjoyed everything that we ordered. Even the 2 year-old with us enjoyed the food. We would all go back for breakfast in a heartbeat. The sandwiches for a mid-day meal also looked really good.

On a very busy Saturday morning we found Manna's. My wife enjoyed the Wisconsin Sunrise Scrambler omelette with ham, scallions and cheddar cheese. With a side of the cheesy hash browns, it was very satisfying. Our friend enjoyed her choice of the Away in Provence omelette with a side of the cheesey hash browns. She said the omelette with garlic... More

Great place for a quick healthy bite. Nice community cafe seated in Madison's Northeast. Pros: Accommodating, friendly with numerous gluten free and vegetarian. Quite efficient even during peak times. Cons: Price point is a bit high, but portions are comfort size. :)

Located on the bike route around Madison. We always stop in on the way and share a huge muffin. Breakfast always comes with fresh fruit! Really nice place.

Loved this place. Wonderful for people watching. Busy, but everyone was friendly and patient. Granola covered cakes were very good, and fruit cup was fresh, real fruit. Not a place for being in a hurry or for quiet contemplation on a Saturday morning, but that isn't what I was looking for.

Saturday morning brunch. This place is busy, but it's because everyone wants to eat here! Expect to wait a little, but it's worth it. I had the Lap of Luxury for breakfast and it was delicious. Wonderful looking bakery items as well. Free Wi-Fi. Be prepared to order at the counter before you sit down.

We made the mistake of coming when it was busy and the service was Very slow. Eggs Benedict was Ok - Breakfast scramble was very good. Plan on having a lot to talk about while you wait!

I arrived about an hour before Friday night closing, and the cold night made the brisket dinner look like a great idea. The brisket was tasty and tender, with the rich caramelized flavor you want. It could have been a little hotter, but I gobbled it up anyway. The shredded Brussels sprout side was really nice. Will be back for... More

I was very excited when I looked at the website for the place. It looked amazing and sumptuous. The atmosphere is lovely and the service is very friendly indeed. My mocha was yummy, but my bakery item was only OK and the thing they called borscht was nothing like any borsht I'd ever eaten, more like cabbage soup, hence my... More
