This is an old time counter service and you can watch your breakfast being made. Not an exquisite diner but the food is the best. The omelets are to die for and almost everything on the menu is fantastic. The owner is very personable and the help, are just that, good old fashion help. You should go before 8:30 or after 9:30am as there is always a rush for seats at that time.

While the food was good--albeit not gourmet--and then again, that is not why you would be at a restaurant in the middle of Manetca, California. The appeal of this cafe is the people who work there. The were friendly, helpful, and for a group of out-of-towners made us feel welcome. The menu was extensive and the portions served were large---the wait staff was very attentive, but warned us that they might get slow when the high school lunch crowd came in. If I am back in the area and hungry--I would stop again just to see a piece of friendly americana--and enjoy some good food.

Recently had breakfast here. It was just OK, sorta typical "greasy spoon". If you like big portions you'll like this place. Service was excellent.

I discovered the Mangy Moose Cafe almost two years ago and have continued to return there whenever I'm in Manteca. It's a wonderful place to have breakfast or lunch. Good variety on the menu. Food is prepared to your specific order and served hot. Your coffee cup never seems to be empty.

The owner personal greets the customers and thanks them for coming in - a real welcoming to all. Lots of "regulars" frequent the Cafe. The wait staff are great - very friendly and welcoming. The Cooks interact with the customers making the whole experience great at the Cafe.

The Cafe has limited seating, but seating turns over quickly. I've never waited more than 5 minutes to be seated.

I highly recommend the Mangy Moose Cafe! It's a wonderful place that leaves you feeling good!

Someone told us this place had good breakfasts......they were right! I had a half size portion of an omelet served with hash browns and a pancake "as my toast". The portions are huge....and delicious! I took half of mine home. The restaurant is long and narrow with 3 tables at the rear and 1 at the front window. Service was quick and the waitress was friendly and recommended some options when we asked. If you're looking for a high-class, fancy place, this isn't it.....but if you want home-cooked comfort food, try it!
