If you haven’t yet been to Manna Epicure (151 Kloof St), then you’re totally missing out. That place is absolutely gorgeous! Oh and the food is pretty yummy too…
There’s a really cute outside deck area where you can enjoy the sunshine on a warm day:
But the most stunning part is the interior – crisp white-on-white design that just blows you away:
There’s some seriously fun elements too, like this in-your-face wooden chandellier type light:
To kick off my Manna experience, I opted for a Chai Latte. I am totally Chai Latte obsessed at the moment, just can’t get enough of the stuff! You could hook me up to a Chai Latte drip and I would be in heaven…
Then I just couldn’t resist indulging in the french toast croissant with bacon, brie cheese, rocket and honey. Doesn’t that just sound soooooo good!?
Lastly my friend Nix and I decided to share a piece of the red velvet cake that we had beein eyeing out since sitting down at our table. I had never had red velvet cake before, so I was very excited…
I think in my mind, because of the bright red colour – I was expecting something totally different. Like some kind of crazy berry flavour that packed a lot of punch. But in reality it just kinda tasted like a mildly flavoured chocolate cake… hmmmm… disappointment… It was slightly dry as well, but I think that was because we had the last piece that was left on the display. Never a good option. Nix claims that she can make a much better red velvet cake and that I will totally fall in love with it. She’s just gonna have to prove herself on that one, but I will be all to happy to be part of the tasting panel. haha.
I decided not to let the cake mishap affect my feelings about Manna in general, so my Miss K Kiss-o-Meter ratings would be as follows:
After all those kilojoule heavy treats I had to starve myself the rest of the day (I’m sadly not even joking) – but it was 100% worth it.
