Visit the historic Phoebus community for a mouthwatering meal or a tasty cocktail (or both!) at Mango Mangeaux. Grab a seat on the patio or upstairs at their popular RoofTOP, and experience a flavor infusion of three distinct cuisines. Mango Mangeaux imbues its one-of-a-kind menu with French cuisine packed with panache; Creole cuisine that doesn’t just satisfy one’s appetite, but brings a celebratory atmosphere to the meal; and NeoSoul cuisine, a modern take on Soul Food favorites, with delicious new spins on traditional recipes that have passed from generation to generation. As delectable as Mango Mangeaux is, there are even more tasty places to explore in Phoebus.
