“Wonderful baked goods”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

One of the best bakeries I know - their breads, cakes and salads are absolutely superb. It's very busy though, so get here early to get a full selection of breads, and be prepared that take out might be an easier option than trying to find a table to sit at. But the patisserie has to be the best in Edinburgh, well worth a visit!

“Quick Lunch”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

The Manna House had a great selection of fresh salads and sandwiches for lunch. The prices were extremely reasonable. If you go later in the afternoon the selection is depleted. The bakery items are very good. I would recommend their blueberry cobbler. It is a very small shop and seating is limited. It appeared a lot of local folks frequent the shop.

“The cakes aren't the only thing easy on the eye...”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

The breads are too!

Okay, I admit it -I seem to fall in love every time I come in to The Manna House. If it's not a member of staff, it's potentially another customer and when all else fails -it's definitely the food!

I'm never disappointed with this place.

Great food.

Great service.

Great time!

“Good cakes and bread stuff, so-so for sitting in”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

I love their products, but the coffee is mediocre and the place isn't great for sitting in. Very busy (good for them!), however there isn't much space there with just a few crammed tables so eating in-house can be actually a pretty poor experience. Or no experience at all, especially on weekend mornings when it's hard to find a seat. Still, their bakery is excellent and surpasses every other in Edinburgh (perhaps except Falko in Bruntsfield, but they are super-expensive). Worth a visit.
