I'm looking for yaoi mangas that take place mostly in a restaurant or cafe, or generally have a "food" theme, so far I've read: - Dolce - Cafe relish ni oide - Antique bakery (I'm referring to the doujins in this case)
* Kuimonodokoro Akira by YAMASHITA Tomoko- One of my all-time faourites, that I can recommend without any hesitation. It has a realistic feel to it and the characters are well-created in my eyes, because their behaviour is never out of line or inconsistent. ^^
* Konya wa Take-out nite is set up in the fast-food business and offers nice artwork, but the storyline might be a bit unusual to follow. Anyways, I was fine with the way it was different from your usual settings.
* Tsuki ni Ichido no Omeshi Agari - Again nice to look at drawings and this time also a storyline including restaurants, because the characters meet regularly up to eat together in the beginning. The atmosphere while eating is quite well-created.
* Dear Green - One of the characters is opening a cafe.

I just want to say Aymaan143, that I appreciate the distinction you made between Antique Bakery and the doujins. IMO Antique Bakery is not yaoi, because there is no romantic or sexual relationship between the principal characters, although it often is called yaoi or at the least shounen-ai.

^ I'm gonna enjoy reading these, arigatou~
And yeah I noticed a lot of people calling AB a "yaoi", but the only BL aspect in it is Ono, and that wasn't really the main theme of the manga. A lot of mangas that incorporate bromance and such are called yaoi, even though there's no BL in it, there's a fine line between being bros and engaging in intercourse
