Manakeesh Cafe & BakeryA fusion of traditional Lebanese baked goods with American favorites

About Us

Manakeesh Café Bakery is an exciting and new addition to University City located at the corner of 45th and Walnut Street, directly across from Saad’s Halal Restaurant. We offer a Lebanese fusion, prov...iding a distinct Lebanese twist to many American favorites, while introducing a distinct cultural flavor to the community, contributing to the transformation of our corner into a ‘New Lebanon.’ The cafe is the brainchild of a passionate owner who longs for the vibrant atmosphere of Downtown Beirut here in Philadelphia. The name is inspired by the Manakeesh, a Lebanese flatbread sandwich traditionally baked in an open flame oven and cranked out early in the morning in time for breakfast. So come on in and visit us. Whether you are seeking a sandwich made in the oven in front of you, a velvety espresso, a bite of baklava, or just the aroma of fresh baked bread, you will be sure to leave with your own little slice of Lebanon.
