Fresh ingredients, nice variety on the menu

We had five adults in our party and each ordered a different entree for lunch. Each menu item was thoughtfully prepared. The service was a bit slow, but we enjoyed the open kitchen and the decor while we waited. This is a cute, out-of-the way place that features some locally grown ingredients.

dinner at Manuel's is a great mix of familiar ingredients paired together in gourmet Southern style to please any palate. Steak, seafood, veal and pork chops something for everyone. Don't forget to try the dessert sampler - you will not be disappointed. Always a great experience , excellent food and service.

The venue was gorgeous, the waitstaff very very kind, and the coffee (which I took black) actually tasted quite delicious. Strongly recommend.

I had a wonderful pasta dish made with homemade tomato sauce that was delicious. We arrived between lunch and dinner. They make all of their desserts in house as well. Great waiter! Quaint restaurant in a trendy neighborhood. Will return someday!

Food always delicious but the wait staff is a little strange. Many times inexperienced and snappy. Nice seating inside or outside.

Bottom line: Don't ruin great ingredients with nearly inedible seasoning, and if you are going to call yourself a bread cafe, please offer more than white bread with pre-packaged butter. We stopped in here on a Saturday night for dinner. The cafe is a cozy little establishment with an open kitchen. The tables are really close and with so many... More

If Manuel's were local to us, I know we would be regulars. Folks, look at the places currently rated better than Manuel's Bread Cafe. Seriously? If you'd prefer chain restaurants, go for it, but don't berate Manuel's for not serving that kind of food or having that kind of pricing. In the three days we spent in North Augusta, we've... More

Such a pleasant place. We ate outdoors and the service was friendly and very competent. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the ambiance of the neighborhood.

We loved being able to eat outside and people-watch. Easy access and great meal. But save room (better make that two rooms!) for dessert!

As a professional chef, I rarely review anything. But, with the price and hype of this restaurant, let me say this. Our server tonight was nice, but it took 15 minutes to find a beer/wine list. When she brought bread, it was 3 slices of very stale and very bad white bread. And, butter was Sysco or US Food's tinfoil... More
