I have already recommended Cafe Manna to several friends since eating there on Valentine's Day. Every dish was made with creativity, attention, and care and achieved great taste with healthy, fresh ingredients. I loved the complimentary citrus water and hummus with gluten-free crackers~

Cafe Manna is the best restaurant for vegetarians, vegans, anyone with food allergies, or anyone who is crazy about vegetables. I have dinner here plenty of times with meat eaters who enjoy it as well, and that says a lot. They have new specials every two weeks and I always love to see what they come up with.

Amazing food! So amazing! We couldn’t believe how good the “spring rolls” were. We shared them as an appetizer. The loaded grilled cheese was unbelievable. We were barely talking because the food was so mesmerizing. And healthy!!!!
Service was perfect too.
Feels cold and is loud. Need seems to need curtains or something to diffuse the sound and coldness

The server was attentive and helpful. The restaurant is a nice change of pace from the standard restaurant. The “Peace Bowl “ was very tasty and was a very generous portion. The pesto pizza was very good as well.

Everything was delicious and the server was great. She let us sample jackfruit which neither of us had ever tasted and recommended dishes for us. We both loved our selections. I plan to return myself and to bring my son there when he comes for Christmas.

I'm not a vegetarian but I love vegetarian dishes with the tremendous mix of flavors and textures. I've been to Cafe Manna before and have not been disappointed. So, when vegetarian brother came to town, it was a clear choice (in part also to location and notch-up atmosphere). Good wine choice too. Mangia!

I ordered the sundries tomato orchiette and it had no flavor at all. Definitely would not get that again or recommend it. Your mushroom radiator is my all time favorite dish! Please bring that back and keep it on the menu! The spicy cashew cauliflower was delicious, but too spicy. Would have preferred less heat! Still enjoy coming here though!

We celebrated our daughter's birthday here. She has many food allergies and is vegetarian. Although the rest of our party is not vegetarian we all enjoyed our food. The portions were generous and the presentation of the food was appealing. The staff and our server in particular was very attentive and detail oriented. My daughter ordered off of a separate nut-free menu.
Overall, a very good dining experience. Cannot think of how our experience could have been better.

Wonderful little corner restaurant with a creative and changing menu. The food is delicious and prepared/displayed perfectly. Generous servings. Nice selection of wines, refreshing healthy drinks and teas, etc. Quiet, friendly atmosphere. Great, attentive service. For me, it's a long drive from home, and worth it!

I love cafe manna, but this time we were truly disappointed.
Nice wait staff, patio dining, good selection of gf and veg food.
Veg gf Pad Thai tasted better the next day. Maybe the sauce or spices had time to meld and Mellow.
Cherry quinoa salad was an enormous letdown,as a side dish it would have been lovely.
But really a small plate of quinoa with a few cherries And a single layer of spring mix on a plate was not my idea 💡 of a cherry quinoa salad. Greens were truly nonexistent. Sadly dinner for us wasn't the great meal we were expecting and have cont you know and anticipate! I just love this place!

Cafe Manna is one of our favorite restaurants in the Greater Milwaukee area. We've recommended it to many friends and relatives who now love it, too, whether they are vegetarian or not. The service is exceptionally friendly and responsive. The menu has something for everyone! The food is fresh and flavorful. We also love that it is quiet enough to have a conversation. We also appreciate Cafe Manna's creativity and how they try new menu items each season. The chocolate raspberry torte they offered as a new dessert item was fabulous! We look forward to returning again very soon.

Everything was good. I would go back as I enjoyed my food. It was a nice change of pace with some unique options on the menu. My BLT was enjoyable and the nachos were unique. I'd like to see a full vegan menu but oh well. Our waitress was pleasant and very kind.

Whenever my friend who is vegan visits from Washington State we go to Cafe Manna for dinner. We love the guacamole potato skins and she really loves the black bean burger. Service is always good but this time our server forgot to bring the crackers and hummus that is complimentary but did bring it to the table next to us.
