I have eaten at Manna Java numerous times, but not recently until two days ago. Things had changed dramatically from my last visit and not for the better.

Located in the Roshek building, setting is bright and cozy. Menu offers salads, pizza, sandwiches and burgers. Quality ingredients. Great customer service. Prices fair. Great place to meet friends and family for lunch!

Food is prepared well. It's a small menu but there is something for everyone. Quality ingredients prepared well. There is great seating. A view of locust street or the building interior. Both are fun.

In a historic building. Pizza by the slice looked very good. Bakery goods to go with their great coffee. Bar is closed but still a great destination for top notch casual dining. Open for breakfast.

The food and service as always is excellent; today the blueberry puff pastry was my choice and did not disappoint me. It was enjoyable with a skinny Latte. I noticed there new listing of the lunch of the day, which provided a wide variety of well priced lunch items.

We stopped in for coffee and croissants..both were excellent! Their other breakfast options were more hearty and, looking at other tables, they looked great. Good service, and because of a little mixup on our bill (that got easily straightened out) the manager gave us some free cookies to take away with us.

Quaint eatery in the former department store now office building. Wonderful soups and made daily loaves of bread that are used in the sandwich of the day. Great to pick up a cup of coffee.
