KRANKIN CAFE

As the name so ably suggests, this place is sure to get you cranking!  And let’s face it, before the coffee kicks in, it’s understandable if you are sometimes a little cranky!   

Krankin is the biggest café in Manning and you can sit inside or out, or if you’re running short on time, pop into the takeaway window and pop out with a brew and a tasty treat.   

And if coffee isn’t you’re thing or it’s too hot, check out their ice cream machine!

Our Ruby Girl Cafe (Image: Facebook)

OUR RUBY GIRL

This is a popular haunt because of its great coffee and different seasonal menu which is inspired by the Whadjuk Nyoongar people and includes many native ingredients.   

The café is very instagrammable with some fun wallpaper spanning the internal walls as the perfect backdrop to your coffee cup!  Yes, coffee and selfies are totally a thing because if it didn’t happen on social media, did it really happen at all?    

The eco-friendly owners strive to keep the café zero waste and because it also doubles as a providore, its shelves are stocked with lots of goodies including books, plants, homewares, jewellery, tasty treats and locally made art. 

They also hire a range of staff with a disability as part of their equal opportunity employment commitment which gets a big tick from us.

BAHN MEE

Located in the popular Welwyn Avenue shopping precinct, this is a popular meeting place for savvy locals who want to take time out with a cuppa but also have easy shopping convenience.  

The café is located in a cosmopolitan strip that includes a local fruit and veg market, an IGA supermarket, pharmacy, newsagent, bottle shop, hairdresser and a clothing boutique. 

If you want more than a coffee, try the menu: it is Vietnamese deliciousness.   

Bahn Mee roughly interpreted means “baguette” and after the first bite will have you saying “more for meeeeee!”

Raktacino  

This is a fun café is tucked away in Salter Point which is Manning’s riverside neighbour. 

If you’re a Star Trek fan you’ll know that “Raktacino” is the term used for “cappuccino”, which is Mr Spock’s drink of choice from the original Star Trek series! 

This café does coffee, breakfast and lunches by day and turns into a fabulous wood fired pizzeria by night!  Ask for Carol’s Creation which is a pizza with blue cheese, pear and rocket which packs a flavour punch that would make Mr Spock proud!
