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.

We had a wonderful time and the ambiance is exceptional for the augusta area. Manuel and his staff are very nice and I loved the stuffed prawns and snapper entree!

Our large group grew in the last few minutes, so we had to scramble to get seating for everyone. The staff was very nice about it and were able to accommodate everyone. Good farm to table meals, great cheese board and entrees. Rack of lamb seemed to be a hit, as was the snapper that I had. Very good wine list as well. Service lagged at times, I think because of the size of the group. Some of the items seemed to come out in an unusual order but not enough to be an issue. I would hope not; I've entertained here several times, and will again. It's one of my favorites, and a BIG plus is that it's open on Mondays and Tuesdays, unlike many of the Augusta area restaurants.

We dine at Manuel’s all the time, but this had to be one of the best. There were five of us, we all got something different, and we all loved our meal. I have never had the filet before and it was mouthwatering delicious. One of my friends commented that this was a meal that you would only get in a high-end restaurant in Atlanta. Another friend texted her son while she was there to tell him he should take his wife there for Valentine’s Day. It was that good.

Absolutely wonderful evening. The food was fresh, perfectly prepared and delicious. They had a nice selection of special appetizers and entrees, and the staff gave excellent recommendations. Also had a fabulous selection of desserts. As always, the ambience is so comfortable and relaxing, with the old black and white foreign movies playing on the back wall. We absolutely love Manuel's!

Both food and service was excellent. We were dining with family members who were visiting from out of town. They totally enjoyed the cuisine and environment. We are periodic regulars at this restaurant and use it as our "go to" location for entertaining out of town guests. It is always a hit!
