Diner Reviews
  • "Great food.... service, ambiance and noise level all could be a lot better."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Very organic health foods with not much flavor and bland tasting. If you're into that sort of thing you will probably like this. I did not like the entree I had but was my first time there and maybe just chose the wrong item -a sand which that was just a mushroom with some fetus cheese, lettuce, and tomato. I believe in eating healthy 99 percent of the time which I try to do at home but for me, when dinning out, I want to indulge in the "goodies". could not find anything on the menu to get excited about. Thought this was a waste of money."

  • "Cafe Manna is a treat. All foodies will be happy with this one. Don't miss the Nachos! They are terrific. Even gluten - sensitive folks will find plenty on this menu to love! I always head to Cafe Manna when we have out of town guests and have never been disappointed with the service and the food."

  • "There is some really creative and good food here. This place is on our short list of places to bring guests, celebrate an event, or just eating out."

  • "We were visiting from California and found this gem! The food was inventive, tasty, good variety, and HEALTHY, farm fresh vegetarian, glutten free options. So good we returned the next night, something we never do. Staff was super friendly"

  • "I'm not vegetarian but I am in the process of eating more of a vegetarian diet. This place had many choices from to choose and they were all bursting with flavor! My server helped me make a selection and what she chose was so good and filling I couldn't believe it. They are also relatively fast. I've been to places like this befire and it usually takes a very long time to get food. You can't go wrong here. I had the lettus wraps she recommended the lentil soup which was awsome, mushroom burger, this wonderful limonade yes with limes, kale, chard and finally house made carrot cake. Having places like this makes the transition easy."

  • "Never disappointed. Love the food. I like that the menu changes with the seasons."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "I'm vegan, so Cafe Manna is one of the only restaurants that I can go to in the area where I KNOW I'm going to find something to eat! I've eaten there many times, and I have always loved everything that I've ordered! What's great though is that I've taken lots of non-veg people there with me, and they always love their food too!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I've dined here half a dozen times, always trying something new, and have never been disappointed. Great, imaginative food in a lovely atmosphere."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "I have found my next most favorite restaurant. The food was amazing, the wine delicious, and though I am a non-vegetarian currently, I may be changing my ways. I cannot say enough good things about the restaurant from the decor to the outdoor seating. The wait team was so friendly and down-to-earth.Brookfield is not at the top of my list when I think of new and exciting bistro-type restaurants, but I have been proven wrong. I cannot wait to come back and try something else."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "very disappointed in the taste and quality of our food. I have been a regular for years. The last two times I have eaten here in the last two weeks, the food was almost unedible - the pad thai was lime heavy, really sour. The potato pizza was pasty and somewhat tasteless. I have eaten this at Cafe Manna before and it was incredible. I'm really disappointed as this was my go to restaurant for clean, local and healthy food"

  • "It's always been our first choice for vegetarian dining. "

  • "This is vegetarian fine dining! There is always something different and delicious."

  • "This place is perfect for diners with specific food needs: veggies/gluten issues ect."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Nice selection of food and prices were what I expected. The service was kind of 'weird' sort of a forced politeness. Waitress asked me 3 times what I wanted and still brought me the wrong meal, BUT they had actually prepared both what I ordered and what she thought I had ordered. Not sure who misunderstood whom-just weird. She said thank you so much that it made me feel uncomfortable-almost like am I acting in such a way that she feels the need to apologize I would describe the noise level as loud-my 70 year old parents couldn't hear the conversation."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "As they have always said, yummy food. It had been some time since our last visit and the menu now has many more items that not only taste great but have "work of art" presentation."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "As a vegetarian, this place is my favorite restaurant. Being able to pick anything off a menu is something I am not able to do at every restaurant. The food, employees and atmosphere is always positive."
    Dined on 5/15/2014
  • "Love the interesting veg options! Food is great. Love that the avocado truffles are on the menu all the time now."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "This restaurant is awesome!! The flavorful foods are complemented with very pleasing wines. You don't have to be a vegan to enjoy mouth watering flavors. But you can be! :)"

  • "This is the favorite place my Wife and I go to for eating out in Brookfield."
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "Sometimes I get worried that Wisconsinites might think that eating vegetarian or vegan means bland and boring food. As a frequent traveler, I've had an opportunity to explore many healthful creations, but have had a difficult time finding things in Wisconsin. I'm happy to report that slowly, but surely, this vibrant food genre is starting to make it's way to the midwest, and Cafe Manna is a delicious example. All you need to do is go to their website and start drooling over the beautiful food photography. My only caveat is that it is located pretty far outside of MIlwaukee for me, and not necessarily near a major freeway, meaning that my visits must be relegated to special occasions. Hoping they open another location in Milwaukee!"

  • "Love Cafe Manna. Second time there and we plan to go back regularly - both of us were kicking ourselves for not returning sooner. Great menu with lots of options from hardcore vegan to things that are approachable for non-vegetarians."

  • "Fit for Foodies and Vegans and everyone in between."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "A great setting for our small group of ladies who are health conscientious but still want to have a good time Our server was extremely attentive and friendly I had the peace bowl and it was ok - it seemed something was Missing with all of the fabulous reviews I had heard Previously about it. The spring rolls were great as well as the Pizza one gal ordered and the risotto special. Carrot cake and the Mini bites were great for dessert"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I definitely appreciate what Cafe Manna is trying to do with vegan/vegetarian food. The flavor of all the food we ordered was really good. The food was fresh, however I couldn't get past some of the textures - for example tofu (gross) and the desserts were not what I expected. The raw cheesecake was very grainy, but I later found out it was made with nuts. The triple chocolate cake was very dry and crumbly with a whole wheat flavor and not very chocolatey. The hummus and chips we got for free at the beginning of the meal were outstanding. Finally, the waitress was amazing. Great personality, totally unpretentious. I just realized after eating there that I like meat and real cheese and eggs and milk and butter....."

  • "Great food, excellent service. Huge selection of healthy, tasty food. Will need many visits to try everything! Too noisy for conversation during the busy time , but off hours it is perfect."

  • "Everything about this restaurant was great especially the food. My husband and I shared the potato skin appetizer which were very tasty. I had the Raw spaghetti and meatballs, and my husband had the Cornish Pasty. Both dishes were very tasty and were large enough that we had lunch for the next. This was really more than enough to eat, but I had to try their desserts. I had the Cookies and Creme which was really good with the coffee. The service was great. Our waitress was very helpful in answering our questions about the many selections of dishes. I highly recommend Cafe Manna to vegetarians and anyone who is interested in trying some Raw dishes."

  • "Too small of a venue. There are some very poor table locations and we happened to get one on our last visit. Extremely tight quarters and noisy listening to your neighbors. Food is very good and good for you."

  • "New Year's Eve at this quaint establishment offered a nice menu of truly tasty healthy food options. Yum. Yum. Yum!"

  • "Dined with friends New Year's Eve. None of us are vegan or vegetarian, but really enjoyed our dinner selections. Wine list is small but excellent. Service was very attentive, although we felt a bit rushed, and we did not expect that here."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We had a reservation for a party of 5 on New Years Eve. We were seated at a table that was right in the traffic flow for all servers and arriving guests which made for a distraction for the entire meal. One of the soups served was not warm enough and had to be sent back to be heated. The 'spicier' of the entrees were too spicy for 2 of our diners - and we had to ASK for water even when it was pretty clear that we were hesitant to order spicy foods. The pacing was just ok. Great salads but overall this visit was below expectations."

  • "Café Manna is an amazing restaurant for so many reasons. The restaurant space itself is warm, cozy and inviting of pleasant conversation. (It's a fantastic place for outdoor dining in warm weather!) The wait staff are consistently kind and helpful. And, of course, the food is delicious! As a vegetarian/gluten-free person, it can be very difficult to even consider dining out; I usually assume there will be an extremely limited selection for me to choose from, or nothing at all. At Café Manna, the selections are vast, appealing, and wonderful. Thank you!!"
