Amazing French toast

Might be the best French toast I've had in my life. Bacon, bananas, syrup, probably cinnamon, and the fluffiest bread ever.

Closer to the Devenport jetty walk down to this place after getting down from ferry. Love the food and the presentation. Liked the light atmosphere.

Went on a short day trip to Devonport. Manuka is located on Victoria Road, where most of the shops are. The wait staff were very charming and sweet. I ordered the manuka omelette, which smelled and tasted really good. The cafe has a lovely ambiance and overall warm feeling. I would come back here definitely!

Spent a few lovely hours in Devonport finishing up at Manuka for a light snack and local cask beer, both were very nice and inexpensive, staff were friendly and attentive without being over powering. Certainly worth a return visit.

Devonport is full of places, it is always better to choose a restaurant which has customers. Service was very friendly, atmosphere was cool, and food... well, food was food. I had six oysters (yes, I know, it is a risk) that were rather fresh, a lamb shank that was standard in taste and medium to small in size, fries, beer... More

We went to Manuka for lunch,, but they serve breakfast all day. Look for their specials. The seafood chowder is very hardy and very good You might try the Whitebate fritter - tasty.

We were impressed by the calamari salad, the scallop with cauliflower puréed the "big breakfast". The service was prompt and friendly, we really like that Chardonnay (Spy valley) which e had not been able to find elsewhere,,,,the seafood was definitely freshly caught. The little florentine biscuits were crispy and light. Davenport is a great place with kids. Davenport plus lunch... More

A weekend away with a bunch of girlfriends and we decided to ferry across to Devonport for the day. One of our group had been to Manuka before and recommended it. It was very busy when we arrived - always a good sign. Because we were a group of 10 we had to sit 'around the corner' as this was... More

First of all staff didn't ask me what size I like and my coffee was burnt completely. When I complained their barista said she is making coffees from past 10 years with arrogance and attitude made an other coffee pretty much with cold milk....horrible experience, I just left coffee on there counter. The same barista is owner of this cafe... More

Visiting Davenport and stopped for what we thought would be a basic snack, how wrong could we be. The Ceasar salad perfect and the Chicken pie with mozzarella cheese one of the best I have had.
