Welcome to Little Beirut!

Founded in early 2011, Manakeesh Cafe Bakery has quickly become a staple in the University City and West Philadelphia communities.

Located on the corner of 45th and Walnut Streets in a renovated historic former bank, Manakeesh offers a Lebanese fusion, providing a distinct Lebanese twist to many American favorites, while introducing a distinct cultural flavor to the neighborhood.

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.

In addition to the Manakeesh, which are served here with over 20 different toppings, the selection includes wraps, platters, appetizers, and a wide array of beverage options (Non-Alcoholic of course).

"The best part, though, was the lavish bread used to hold the ingredients. Durable and hearty, yet easily torn, the bread tasted freshly baked and really brought the wrap together."
