One of Manteca’s newest dining spots allows you to work up an appetite beforehand or work off breakfast afterwards.
The Bugle Boy Café — part of the Manteca Veterans Center that serves as the home of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6311 — serves breakfast to the public Friday mornings. They are also offer taco dinners every Tuesday evening.
The location at 580 Moffat Boulevard is on the Tidewater Bikeway that’s just under a 4-mile bicycle ride from Del Webb along the Tidewater.
Breakfast is served Fridays from 8 to 10 a.m. Fridays. There is a no host bar.
Last Friday’s breakfast featured home fries with bacon and onions, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy along with coffee for $7.
Taco Tuesdays are from 4 to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays. The menu includes tacos, beans, rice, machos, and salsa.
The VFW periodically has dinners that are open to the public as well such as the upcoming New Year’s Ever Party.
The Veterans Center — also known as the Moffat Community Center — also offers hall rental.
It is becoming a popular spot for wedding receptions and such given its size, the facilities, ease of parking, as well as easy access.
The Veterans Center is also the new location for Manteca’s weekly blood drives conducted by the American Red Cross on Mondays from noon until 6 p.m.
For information on hall rentals and VFW events or the Bugle Boy Café call 209.823.8700.
