Nestled within the cradle of North Augusta's ambitious and visionary Hammond's Ferry riverfront development, Manuel's Bread Cafe combines the storied tradition of a French bakery, pastry and food shop with an unforgettable casual dining experience. From his hometown of Lyon, the Mecca of French cuisine, culinary wizard Chef Manuel Verney-Carron uses his exceptional artistry to extend delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner, all guaranteed to delight any palette. The seasonal menu features Manuel's twist on exquisite time-honored French dishes laden with organic produce grown from the fertile soil of our very own Blue Clay Farms, within the partition of Hammond's Ferry. The Cafe is also presenting daily "Plats Du Jour", as well as menu items available as carry-out fare for those who wish to sample the wondrous food "on the go" or in the comfort of their own home. The Cafe also offers a storefront with freshly baked bread, pastries and other items.

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.
