We utilize the freshest ingredients from the local farmers and fisheries of North Carolina. We don’t buy “local” for the sake of buying local…we buy the best available produce from the best vendors–if they are close to home, that’s even better.

manna proudly uses Folk's Café coffee, Progressive Farms, Shelton Herb Farm, Feast Down East, Eco Friendly Foods, Cottle Organics, Pridgen Farms, Carolina Farmin', Sunshine Cove Farms, Ward's Produce & Black River Organic for most of our offerings. We buy LOCAL as much as we can -- especially if the product from close to home is a better & cost effective one. We prefer to know our farmers, fisherman and those hard working people who have an honest passion for their "work."

We utilize the freshest, most local ingredients possible in every recipe. Practically everything that is presented for your consumption is prepared in our kitchen by our culinary team. Please make us aware of any dietary/allergy concerns. We are happy to accommodate any vegetarian, vegan, Gluten Free, Paleo, Nightshade, etc…request that we can.
