Mani’s Cafe – Jawharat Al Shatti

Mani's

Mani’s Cafe (Telephone: 24607015 – Posted from Muscat, Muscat, Oman.) is a cafe in Jawharat Al Shatti that serves coffee, cakes and sandwiches. We came to try out its breakfast menu on a weekend. Mani’s is located in the same building as Darcy’s Kitchen, but just on the second floor in the back.

During our visit early on the weekend, Mani’s looked pretty empty with only one other table occupied besides ours. Mani’s has a bright white seating area that looks airy and refreshing with a lot of natural light. The restaurant is relatively small and has about ten tables only.

The breakfast menu of Mani’s is relatively small and offers freshly made juices, eggs, grains, sandwiches and hot drinks. I decided to go for Mani’s Spicy Scrambled Eggs (RO 2.700) which had spinach, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and cheese. My friend ordered poached eggs on toast with  spinach, asparagus, mushrooms, and hallumi on the side  (RO 3.500). My scrambled eggs came with two large slices of bread on the side. I found my dish to be nice, though a little bit boring, especially as I was hoping the spicy element of the dish to have some sort of kick. My friend enjoyed his dish and did not have any issues with it.

For the drinks we ordered a pomegranate crush (RO 1.900) and a grapefruit juice (RO 1.900), we enjoyed them a lot.

I found the service at Mani’s to be OK. Our food came on time and as ordered. The staff were pleasant even though they could not really help us much when we asked them to explain something in the menu.

In total we ordered 2 mains and 2 juices, our bill came to RO 11.000.

I enjoyed my visit to Mani’s even though I have to admit that I was a bit bored with my food, this of course could be a side effect of going to Slider Station for breakfast every single weekend and expecting something as creative from Mani’s. I did see some other table order cups of grains with yogurt or something that looked more interesting than the eggs I had. Mani’s seems to be a great option for a simple healthy quiet breakfast, I might give it another shot, when, and if, I ever get bored of having my breakfast at Slider Station. Until then, you guys know where to find me.

Have you guys been to Mani’s? What do you usually order here for breakfast?
