Third year in a row that we (three of us) celebrated our birthdays at Café Manna. Everything was AWESOME again, so definitely we want to do this celebration there again next year. Intend to be back sooner (even though it is a trek from my home).

Café Manna is my one of my favorite restaurants. They have elevated vegetarian dining to gourmet which is a rare find. I love exploring all their menu each time I come and always being wonderfully surprised at the uniqueness and subtlety of the tastes. A place to savor vegetarian dining with great service and a pleasant atmosphere.

Excellent meal, great "specials", just right for a good meal before an 8pm theater event.
Have been here several times, always good, fresh food.
Wines are nice too.

Usually not my favorite type of food but we went to Cafe Manna to celebrate my vegetarian/vegan daughter's birthday. This time we ordered food we actually enjoyed. (A pasta dish and the grandkids had quesadillas.)
The carrot cake and mini apple pies were delicious desserts, too. It was fun and my daughter liked her raw dinner and the special birthday treat they offered.

Very nice restaurant with knowledgeable & friendly staff. Somewhat upscale but casual attire friendly, too. There’s also space to sit outside (weather permitting). Wonderful vegetarian & vegan options. Menu is clearly labeled, too.

I dream about the Thai Collard Wraps! The cauliflower couscous was a little bland this time but also one of my favorites. My friend had a noodle bowl that was difficult to eat. We suggest a shallower bowl.

always a good spot for dining, this time serval dishes were sold out - probably good for single day sales, but frustrating and confusing for diners that keep ordering and being denied alternatives.
Cafe Manna is always a favorite, looking forward to trying some of the new dishes soon.

Always dine here when my vegan friend visits Milwaukee from Washington State. She loves the food there and we especially like the potato skins with guacamole. The waitstaff there is always very pleasant and helpful in describing their food selections.

Cafe Manna never disappoints. The staff is friendly and well trained. The food is flavorful and healthy, with a great variety of tasty choice. And the atmosphere is very positive and comfortable. Sitting outside when the weather is nice is a great option. We always look forward to returning to Cafe Manna and introducing it to friends who have never dined there before.

I had the bean and mushroom burger with avocado - delicious! My mom had the grilled vegetable pizza; it was also very good! The only thing I wish was that this place had something similar to a sampler on the menu. I wanted to taste a little bit of everything!! I would recommend this place to vegans, vegetarians and even meat eaters will love this place. :)

Nice they have two patios- one in sun and one in the shade. Patio is semi private with fresh herbs grown right there, but couldn't forget was still attached to a strip mall with cars & parking lot right there. Service and food were amazing!

This place offers awesome alternative dining for vegans and vegetarian lifestyle. We found this place and decided to give it a try. The food was delicious to say the least. The avocado potato skins were a good start, followed by the black bean burger and jackfruit enchiladas that my wife had. They were both great options and would definitely have again. The coffee was great and my wife had a specialized iced tea of berry flavor. We definitely want to go back to try the other items!

This is a favorite spot for lunch, especially when the weather warms up and the patio beckons. The new summer menu is FABULOUS! Probably the most creative Cafe Manna has been and I've been coming here since it opened. The service is always excellent and the food locally sourced, carefully prepared. The servers remember you and many times special food needs. Great place for friends, business or even the kids. The kids menu is inviting for kids and guilt free for parents.

I am a meat and potatoes girl, but Cafe Manna makes healty eating taste delicious. This is our second visit and we were not dissapointed either time. The staff is very friendly and will gladly explain if you're not sure what something is. Not sure you'll like something? No problem, they will give you a sample to try.

I so want to like Cafe Manna. We have eaten here at least a half a dozen times. Service is highly variable, the food is pricey-not for the quantity- but for the flavor.

Frequently waited for water refills. And waited.

Would not dine there again
