Located on the corner of 45th and Walnut streets, Manakeesh Cafe Bakery Grill has established itself as the premier destination for Middle Eastern Cuisine in Philadelphia.

As one of the establishments in University City’s Halal quarter, we take pride in bringing authentic Lebanese fare to the community with a menu that is Vegan, Gluten-Free, and Zabihah friendly.

Our passion for baking stems from our Middle Eastern traditions and our love for our culture. Thanks to our loyal customers, Manakeesh Café has also become one of the most critically acclaimed Zabihah restaurants in the city, with many awards including Best of Philly for Middle Eastern Bakery two consecutive years by Philadelphia Magazine!
