Rude, slow service

This place occupies a wonderful corner in Del Ray, and the showcases are full of delicious looking pastries and other goodies. But three times of their rude, slow service was enough to prove that, regardless of the convenience, it's simply not worth it. Breakfast food was unremarkable, and it... read more

Have tried this place 3 times previously, and come away with the same complaints, so I guess it's on me. But I figured I would give them one more chance. Didn't change. Exceptionally long wait for food that is underwhelming. Last visit took 20 minutes for an egg and cheese sandwich, and it wasn't a busy day! Of my 4... More

My wife and I met a colleague her for lunch. He had suggested it as a good place to meet and talk. Not only was it a good place to meet and talk over a cup of good coffee but it had a wide selection of excellent sandwiches and its bakery selections in the display case looked mouth watering. We...

The apple turnover we started out with had the best flavors and was like a delicious pie in a shell. My italian french toast was a HUGE portion!

If you haven't eaten at Mancini's you are missing out! Sunday brunch is probably one of my favorite meals there. The food is superb, but if you want to know their real secret, it's in their baked goods. ;) Mancini's is a bit eclectic. Want coffee? Grab a mug at the register. Remember to grab your own silverware, but most... More

Greasy and gross breakfast sandwiches were only made worse by the poor quality coffee that accompanied them. Although, we live only a couple blocks from this place we prefer to walk the extra half mile to the next closest breakfast and coffee joint.
