Cafe Manna Java, Dubuque, Iowa
The Cafe Manna Java, in operation since December of 2002, was across the street from our hotel so we decided to try it for dinner one evening in Dubuque. It would have been worth the trip if the restaurant had been all the way across town. Cafe Manna Java initially offered only coffee, breads and pastries, as well as a very few desert items. But it was the wood-oven for pizzas, installed later, which made the place special for us. It was definitely better than your average pizza.
There is also a panini grill for sandwiches. Other items such as salads and soups complete the menu at Manna Java.
The foundation of Cafe Manna Java's great food and sandwiches is the use of their very own artisan breads, made fresh from scratch every single day. The bread selections include Sesame Semolina, Crusty French, Olive Rosemary and many, others.
