Good food, nice atmosphere!

I are here yesterday and was very happy. They bring out some hummas and chips as a free appetizer and that was a pleasant surprise. I had a dish off the specials menu and it was good, the tempeh was a little bland but I mentioned it and they bought me a drink to make up for it. Although it's a bit pricey I would definitely suggest this place. I am excited to go back and try some other dishes! And you can't beat an all vegetarian restaurant.

Man, Manna's delicious

-Extremely nice, very thorough, and well-informed waitress.
-Liked being able to sample the Limonade. Was delicious.
-My partner and I shared the Tu-No Melt and the Veggie Stack (special).
-The Veggie Stack was very good, but I would try other things next time. Was similar to a potato pancake. I liked the vegetables between the main layers more than the layers themselves.
-The Tu-No melt, however, was simply to-die-for. I have missed eating Tuna, and this was a fantastic alternative. The tempeh was not as I anticipated. (I thought it would be a kind of patty, like when you buy tempeh in the store.) It was instead an excellent mixture,. more like separate seeds/beans type texture mixed in with everything else. The celery was not too strong, and neither was the dill. The bread was perfectly crunchy.
-The Tu-No melt was accompanied by a fruit salad, which was arguably the best fruit salad I've ever had. (Tons of fresh crushed raspberry over apples and blueberries.)
-It was a bit more pricy than we expected, but well worth it.
-Admittedly a strange thing to mention in a review, but was maybe one of the nicest bathrooms ever encountered in a restaurant. The women's restroom had all kids of toiletries including scope, feminine products, etc. It just goes to show how this restaurant has made a conscious effort to do many things right and not cut corners.

Pros: Excellent, high quality food, Excellent waitress, Excellent experience overall
Cons: A bit too expensive (but still worth it)

Absolutely great restaurant!

This is a GREAT restaurant! This is the second time I have eaten here and I'm so glad I returned. I can now say it is consistently wonderful! During this visit we ordered the Pepita Guacamole Potato Skins and Tu-No Melt. Both dishes were of a very high quality and full of flavor. (They also make a great cup of coffee!) This restaurant is definitely worth a visit!

Pros: Wonderful food, Great service, Clean, asthetically pleasing decor
Cons: Little pricey, Location is inconvenient

Make reservations

We went on a Saturday night and they said we needed reservations. So they had an 8pm opening and we came back in two hours. The place was lovely... food was well presented and very good. Had some original food dishes. They pride themselves on thier green building. The bathroom was nice with complimentary toiletries, Yet they have products that do animal testing and are not organic. I hope that they change that cause otherwise it was just perfect.

Pros: great atmosphere, fancy food, gluten free and raw options

Extreme Disappointment

2 Posted on 10 / 09 / 2010

We had wanted to eat at Cafe Manna for quite some time and finally got the chance, only to leave very disappointed. The food was very bland or oddly spiced. If you're a foodie yuppie who likes to be overcharged on not-so-good food, then this is the place for you. The atmosphere was very stuffy. I was so excited about this restaurant because of them being eco-friendly. I wish I could write a good review, but there's really nothing good to say about our experience with them.

Pros: eco-friendly, raw options, locally obtained food
Cons: overpriced, bland, stuffy atmosphere


favorite restaurant in wisconsin

it was so nice to go to a restaurant and not have to dissect the menu.

Pros: gluten free items, vegan items , non smoking

Now Raw and/or Vegan!

5 Posted on 02 / 25 / 2009

Awesome chef who has added raw and vegan labels to a ton of the already 100% vegetarian restaurant, including a raw dessert that is ao amazing you'll never want a cooked one again! Specials of the day for raw food menu items starting soon:)

Pros: healthy & friendly, raw food, vegan food

Healthy and Fresh!

The GREEN Juice makes you feel like you are getting healthier while you drink it! All of the items are very creative and inviting. Can't wait to try them all... but then they will have to expand the menu. Very green atmosphere with bamboo sustainable flooring, gorgeous lighting and even environmentally friendly PAINT on the walls. Beautiful giant paintings of veggies adorn the walls. The owner is very friendly and welcomes questions or comments. I am very glad to see them doing well, it is nice to have another vegetarian only restaurant in the area!

Pros: healthy fresh food, very friendly staff, no smoking
Cons: no specials
