Smells Like Tuna, But No Fish on the Menu

Normally if I wrote that type of headline it would be some sort of metaphor. Not this time, my friends.

Yesterday I visited the Manna Market Juice Bar on Fairmont Ave. in Bethesda to try a different coffee source. Sometimes a guy just needs an afternoon cup of coffee, you know? When I went in, I was met with a distinct tuna-like smell. It wasn’t a terrible stink but funky enough to put some doubt in my mind about the place.

I decided not to stay around and just pick up a to-go menu. Upon examination, I realized that there were no fish items on the menu. Fishy smell, no fish. Is that a good combination? Has anyone else been to this place and had a positive experience that can turn me on to trying another visit?
