We started with the fried ravioli which were simply delicious . For dinner I had the pan seared Amberjack dinner special and my boss had the filet. Both were cooked to perfection. Then we finished up with an amazing piece of Red Velvet Cake. The food is awesome and the atmosphere is great. This is one of my favorite places to dine for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Loved everything about this restaurant except the food took a little long to make after we ordered. We were there about an hour and 45 minutes But had hoped to be out in about an hour since we were traveling out of town. But it was relaxing and the staff was very sweet and accommodating. Good ambiance. Plan to come back for coffee and dessert soon!

A great little place for quick bite and drinks or a special occasion. Haven't had a bad meal here; I would recommend everything on the menu-particularly the boeuf bourguignon or any steak-but don't forget to leave room for a scrumptious dessert too.

Poutine was excellent. Crispy crispy flounder was tasty. Pheasant (Dry) and Beef bourguignon (very little beef) we’re both quite disappointing, although highly recommended by the waiter.

Wonderful! Sat outside and the breeze was the perfect complement to our food. My wife always gets the filet and I always get Boeuf Bourguignon which were fantastic. The poutine was also tasty. Highly recommend everyone treat themselves to Manuel’s!

This is a goo laid back place to grab something to eat or drink. Especially if you want unfried foods. Good variety for anyone. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Only downside is not all ingredients are apparent in description of items so I recommend asking before ordering.

Had the pasta it was good . I added a protein which was $8.00. The pasta alone was $24. A little pricey but the food was good. Service is great . Only negative, we asked a waitress passing our table for a straw and she said I will tell your server. Not sure why she couldn’t just pass us a straw.

We have been very satisfied with Manuel's before, but not yesterday. Service was good but food value was not. Paid way too much for 2 pieces of French toast with a little fruit and no meat. Our guests were unhappy with food also. Will be a while before returning. Should get more for the prices charged

I have enjoyed my every encounter, dining at Manuel's Bread Cafe. The space is intimate, the staff are friendly and warm, the food is beautifully prepared, fresh and delicious, and service is impeccable! I brought out of town guests on this occasion. They felt like royalty and can't wait for their next visit, to go again! North Augusta is fortunate to Manuel's!

We dine frequently at Manuel’s Bread Cafe and it always been a wonderful meal. My husband always get the flounder and it was delicious once again. The special (Skate Fish) was horrible. It was cold and was supposed to have a lemon,butter,caper sauce. Just had capers on top of it. Our favorite is to take home one or two of you delicious desserts. We noticed that the price went up on the cakes. But we didn’t care because your slices are huge. Got home and the slices were so small. Very disappointed! Not worth the money. Will come back, but will watch the slicing of the cake.

This was our first visit after hearing many recommendations. The food was great, service was excellent. We ordered from the brunch specials. Matty is an excellent cook! We almost felt like we were vacationing at the beach! Recommend making a reservation for sure! Will definitely return.
