Walter Manzke

Tastemaker

Chef Walter Manzke, with his partner Margarita “Marge” Manzke, are the owners and couple behind Wildflour Bakery & Café, Sari Sari Store, Petty Cash Taqueria and the coveted République. “We met in the kitchen years ago at Patina and have worked together for a long time,” says Walter. République is a tag team operation in which Marge is the pastry chef, a vital part of the daytime cafe’s success.
