I'm far from a vegetarian
I'm far from a vegetarian yet Cafe Manna is one of my favorite restaurants.
Three of us split the pizza margarita as an appetizer (it was excellent). My wife had the portabella sandwich, I had the black bean and mushroom burger and my friend had the exotic salad. All were delicious. Everything is fresh, organic and made on site.
Highly recommended for vegetarians and non-vegetarians!

Great vegetarian, vegan and raw food. Very gluten free friendly. Staff is friendly and informative. One of my favorite places in the Milwaukee area. I would eat there more often if it were closer to my east side home.

Great overall experience.
Great overall experience. Great food. Larger portions than I expected. Would have preferred more vegan options though. See menu of Prasad (Portland, OR) for examples. Unique wine selection. Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Quite noisy when the place
Quite noisy when the place is full. It was hard to hear each other talking. The food was great. Appealing to the eye and the taste was tremendous for an all vegetarian place. Went with a friend and she had 2 glasses of win and I had one beer. We had the potato skin appetizer, it was awesome, and the entrees were HUGE portions, way too much to eat but now I have leftovers for lunch.
Somehow the bill was almost $80 for the 2 of us...which was quite confusing...other than that it was ok. I'd give it a 2 out of 5.

I met a friend for dinner.
I met a friend for dinner. The place was pretty empty at first, but then filled up a bit later. Our waitress was pretty attentive, although there were lags in between. We really didn't mind because my friend and I hadn't seen each other in a while, so we were catching up. They have a pretty good gluten free selection. I'm super picky, and was able to find something. It was actually quite good (the corn cakes with vegetable ragout), and was unable to finish the dish. Leftovers for lunch! My friend had the risotto that was inside squash. It was good. It would have been delicious if the rice was cooked longer. It was a little too al dente for me, but my friend seemed to like it. It was a little pricey, but I would definitely come back.

A delightful experience
My non-vegetarian friends enjoyed the menu and selections. I would return to Cafe Manna more often if it was closer to my home.

Our reservation was early
Our reservation was early (5pm) so it was quiet but by 6pm it was full so reservations are a good idea. This restaurant fills such an important need. We love supporting local business, being green, organic, and gluten free. Everything was great.

Sat outside on the patio....get there early if you want the patio....only 4 tables. But inside seating is still very bright if you want the outside feel for lunch!
Very healthy menu...had a hard time choosing what to have, but was very happy with the veggie lasagna....so many good flavors. Guest had the sobu noodle salad...very good, but he did not like the very strong citrus flavor--thought it was a little heavy.
I think the only drawback to our lunch was the service level. She was very nice, just very busy. We didn't always have the prompt service we would have thought. We were not in a hurry, but it still seemed a little slow. Another table had to stop the waitress as she was walking by and ask if they could order already.

I have been to Cafe Manna multiple times now and have been pleasantly surprised at each visit. The atmosphere is relaxing and very tastefully decorated. Beautiful orchids add the perfect touch. The seating is comfortable and very simply stated. The service has always been impeccable. The servers are very obviously happy to be working at Cafe Manna and it shows in their attentiveness and warm smiles. The food is so well prepared and so beautifully served. The temperature of the food is always perfect. The flavor combinations are incredible and very pleasing. The fact that the food is all vegetarian/or vegan is the perfect touch. Nothing like Cafe Manna is available anywhere else in our state. A wonder find and I will return!

This was our first visit to Cafe Manna and really enjoyed ourselves. Our server was great- very knowledgable and helpful. There were so many things on the menu that sounded good, it was hard to choose. We had one of the savory sandwhiches and a black bean burger... both excellent. We decided we would have to come back soon to try other items.

great vegan cuisine
This restaurant pulls it all together for a great vegetarian/vegan dining experience. My fiancee and I are vegan, and were impressed by the fresh, flavorful and unique menu. We were excited by the wide selection of fresh, innovative menu choices (many "vegan-friendly" restaurants only offer a couple of menu selections for vegans). Everything we ordered was freshly prepared, served quuickly, and so tasty. We'll be recommending this place to friends - vegan or not.

This was my second time at Cafe Manna. The food was excellent and the restaurant is eco-friendly. I brought my mom here for a Mother's Day dinner. She loved it too.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great menu selections that we all have not eat that kind but the food are just great and very healthy ! You will not be sorry of going there .... If you are vegetarian or meatless vegan, that is the place you shall try !

Unique, fresh experience!
Went here for a post-graduation dinner with 6 people. We were seated right away, but we did have a reservation. The staff was very attentive and friendly throughout the meal. The food was excellent, and there was a wide variety so that even the picky eaters who just wanted a "burger" could find something they liked and the more adventurous types could find something new to try. They even gave us a free slice of cake to celebrate the graduation! We will definitely go here again!

I love Manna restaurant for their creativity and savory food! I am never dissappointed when I have dined here, and will continue to for a long time! Thank you for providing such wonderful dishes!

The food and service were excellent. Normally a meat eater, I enjoyed our vegan/raw meal and definitely plan to return in the future. Avocados are in season and nearly all the items we chose had fresh delicious avocado in it.
Well done Cafe Manna!

My friend was visiting for her birthday, and recently remarked on how she was trying to eat more organic and gluten-free food. When planning for a restaurant to take her to, I was pleasantly surprised to find Cafe Manna nearby and with an excellent menu. My friend was thrilled, and we both absolutely loved the entrees, wine, and dessert! What a great find!

First time to a vegetarian place
I was completely surprised by eating meatless dishes that I would leave as full as I did! I was stuffed! Food was very good - the avocado potato skins were one of my favorites. The vegetable torte was unique. The veg. quesadilla has a little heat to it so be careful. We got dessert too which was also one of my favorite parts - salted caramel cupcake. YUM! Seemed a little pricey for being what it was. I like meat - but wanted to try something different. Would recommend to diet restricted people.

Healthy & Tasty Dining
I always enjoy my visits to Cafe Manna with its charming ambience, soft music and lovely fresh seasonal flower arrangements . The menu offers a wide variety of tasty dishes featuring fresh ingredients. On this visit I ordered a cup of
their homemade tomato soup and the delicious Exotic Salad accented with avocado & mango. Cafe Manna offers a wide assortment of teas and outstanding desserts, as well. Service is friendly and the staff is always wiling to offer tasty suggestions, based on one's preferences.

3 of us were celebrating our birthdays & we selected Cafe Manna because of the healthy food choices. I have never had a bad experience at Cafe Manna, so I knew we'd have a winner of a dinner! The waitress was spectacular, as was the food. We sat outdoors because t was chilly in the AC, & that was enjoyable.
Cafe Manna is a wonderful restaurant with a spectacular menu.... I only wish they were not so far from Oconomowoc!

Awesome Gluten-Free Eats!
It's always difficult for me to find a place to eat with my food allergies. Cafe Manna went above and beyond in making sure that my food was both allergen-free and yummy!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We recently dined to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and only wish this fine restaurant had been here for us all along! Flavors, entree selections and service are always the BEST! We hope some day they could find a way to serve breakfast and lunch too. Thanks Cafe Manna!

The food was very good, but the noise level was annoying. If you wear a hearing aid, you'll want to avoid this place.

Great tasting and good for you food
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. Very healthy choices here, great service, and a charming staff. We will definitely be going back!

Top of the Very Short List
In the Milwaukee/Chicago area, there are only three vegetarian restaurants that I would unconditionally recommend to a visiting vegetarian: Blind Faith in Evanston, IL, Green Zebra in Chicago, and Cafe Manna in Brookfield, Wi. In all these places, dishes are not just good food nicely prepared, but works of art in the presentation, choice of ingredients, and seasoning. I have now been to Cafe Manna twice. The Quinoa and Rice dice I had this time was terrific, and I am looking forward to ordering it again sometime, when I have explored the menu some more. Just go!

Pricy, But Tasty
I don't normally strive for vegetarian, but have had extremely tasty meals here. Meals are filling, innovative and tasty. The only issue is really the price. I understand paying for quality, but the ingredients aren't typically rare or expensive ones. Regardless, it's good enough to always be busy, so make a reservation.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant is a vegetarians delight. Every item we had was phenomenal. Our server was very knowledgable about botht the food and the restaurant itself.
I am not a vegetarian but we wanted to try it and it was excellent. All items were very tastey and the portions were good
We will be back

We have been going for several years and have never been disappointed. Superb Foor and service.

Café Manna is a joy to visit! The food is fresh and delicious. The staff is very friendly and good at their jobs. Would recommend it to anyone seeking tasty vegetarian and vegan food.

Every Bite Delectable!
Such creative use of ingredients! We loved the 3 course set menu during the special Dine in Brookfield promotion. Will be returning again & again!!

Great food, but even better service
My daughter and I went for the Brookfield Restaurants 2013 specials and we both loved our meals.
I had the lentil soup which was fantastic and my daughter had the house salad, which had a fresh yummy dressing.
I had a vegetable stir fry and she had the fettucini, so we both shared. The portions were very generous, considering it was lunch and a special, that we both had some to take home. The chocolate truffle for dessert was huge, rich, delicious and a perfect ending for a great meal.
I don't remember our servers name, but she explained everything well, was attentive and efficient. We were able to enjoy a leisurely meal.

Love this place!
I love that a vegetarian, green, cool restaurant like Cafe Manna has chosen to make its home in the Milwaukee suburbs. There aren't nearly enough locally owned, quality restaurants like this in my area. Our meal was delicious (always new and exciting options on the menu), and our service was personal and pleasant. Another all-around great night out at Cafe Manna!
