Eastside restaurant permanently closing due to COVID-19

Manna Cafe & Bakery at 611 N. Sherman Ave. announced that it’s closing after 15 years of business due to the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement to customers on their website, owners Barb and Mike Pratzel cited insurmountable measures that would need to be taken in order to be partially open. Additionally, they described Manna as a “hustly-bustly” place and said customers may need too much time to be able to return comfortably to a crowded restaurant.
