The center has a pool with water slides and a kid’s play area. Nearby is the famous Poky’s Pizza Palace. It has authentic Italian food so by default; the pizza is to die for. The bookstore, A World of Books, is another local favorite for your average text junky. The Manor Grill and Bar has reasonably priced dishes served in large portions by friendly and attentive staff. They are recognized for their hearty breakfasts and awesome salads. The Manor Shopping Center was remodeled 5 years ago and now hosts beauty services, a post office, a few restaurants and a preschool.
