Having our boat berthed in Shepard's Wharf, Manuel's seemed like a good option for breakfast as it's so easily accessible and right near the changing rooms. I ordered a bacon and egg roll, juice and a bottle of water to take away. I was surprised to see the water come in a glass bottle (a no-no on a boat, and... More
