Our History

“Mannings is an institution.”

“Massive breakfasts. Great salads. Lunch time menu is a great price. Eclairs and cream donuts to beat the band (be still my cholesterol clogged heart!) and bread that Mam will come in especially for. It’s never impossible to get a seat but it certainly seems so most days. The place is usually jammed with old-school locals, new-school locals, business men and art students. So quite the mix! The staff are like machines, constantly cleaning as they go around, a table need only be empty a few seconds before its cleaned off and has someone new on it. An institution.”

“A peaceful escape from hectic Thomas Street”

“Mannings Bakery offers a peaceful escape from hectic Thomas Street. The sandwiches and pastries are above and beyond (try the carrot cake!) and the coffee is fantastic. There is plenty of seating space and mothers with prams would not feel uncomfortable. Inexpensive and very yummy, Mannings Bakery is a satisfying experience.”
