My friend Susan and I spent the day together, we had errands to run in Milwaukee, so I thought today we would check out Café Manna is. Back in December of 2008 I read an article at JS Online, and bookmarked it for future reference. Café Manna is a vegetarian restaurant located in Brookfield, Wisconsin. What a great little place! The staff was very nice, service was great, and the atmosphere warm, clean and comfortable. The best thing is that the food was excellent.
What I loved about Café Manna were the flavors of everything that we had. I love spices and herbs. Things don’t have to be necessarily hot and spicy, but they do need to have a lot of flavor.
The waitress started us off with a complimentary order of Baba Ghanoush with pita chips. I had the baked falafel sandwich with a citrus tahini sauce. It came with a side of your choice. I picked the oven roasted potatoes that were nicely browned and perfectly seasoned. They weren’t stingy on quantity. It seemed like I had almost a dozen small wedges. I also ordered a cup of the lentil soup, which was very tasty.
I will go back to Café Manna and try a few other things on the menu. It was hard to decide what to get, since everything sounded so good. In addition to their regular menu they had a few Mardi Gras specials for today — a veggie gumbo, and a tempeh po’boy.
We left Café Manna feeling very satisfied, and not guilty about what we ate. If you find yourself in the area — even if your aren’t a vegetarian — I think you will be quite happy trying Café Manna.
