If you love sandwiches, this is a must stop. Expect a 10-15 minute wait if you arrive during lunch hour

Had lunch here and enjoyed a deli sandwich was very good and reasonably priced. Long lineup but moved fairly quick. I did notice lots of stuff they seemed to be out of (including my first choice of sandwich)

Their breakfast trays are excellent! They offer a variety of pastries, muffins and tea biscuits at various prices. They also do awesome sandwich trays. Their fried chicken sandwich is the best!

Headed to Manna for some fresh eats on the way to Cape Spear. Loved the sandwiches and the coffee/ treats were also delicious. Great service and solid pricing. $40 for 3 people for big sandwiches, drinks and treats. Well worth the trip

Service was excellent by the young lady making the sandwiches! Friendly knowledgeable and courteous. We had great tasting sandwiches on pretzel buns. Nice portions of prosciutto and crispy chicken breast. The only downside was the line, popularity and good quality make for a line.
