This is an absolutely charming building, possibly the old manse for the Uniting church. Felt just like being in a living room. The service was friendly, without being anything amazing. The coffee was of a similar standard. My latte had froth reminiscent of The Old Pea Store in Canterbury. The flavour was mild and simple. It\'s a nice change for Toorak, and good to escape the busy street. Not the best coffee around though!
i visiting chinese consulate. and i see that across toorak rd from there is a cafe. hard to find but i find it. i order ice-coffee. it is very good. next time i order capuccino. it is also very good. i like to eat my breakfast in manna cafe when i go to consulate i get very hungry.
as i travel a lot, i stop off at many cafes for a coffee and a bite to eat. Manna is a place i would go out of my way for. I discovered this gorgeous place when i was invited to a friend's birthday party here. i loved the catering so much that night that i was determined to come back and try it at my leisure. Snce then I have been back many times and i have never disappointed Coffee is great as is the food.
so much bad coffee in melbourne even at places that are supposed to be great, but here is a place that has no reputation that serves a magnificent brew. nothing about this daily grind is monotonous. lovingly frothed milk matches a well-balanced blend poured from a spotless machine by a charming baristeress.
i love coffee but it's not enough in itself. At manna the marriage of coffee and cheesecake is the best match since a pickle met a herring to create a rollmop. The home-made lemony creamy cake by itself would make your lips stick together. The full-bodied brew parts them open and leaves you with a smile on your face. :)
