We've been here several times now - this being my first time as a veggie. Good choice of food and good value. Lovely, pleasant staff and nice laid back atmosphere. We'll definitely be back next time we're in Manchester.

Don't be put off by the 1970s shop front or the greasy spoon café interior, because this is a real treasure of a discovery. Nice easy going young staff serving big breakfasts and big mugs of tea to students and others who want to be...More

Open early, friendly staff. Food was good quality. Unfortunately only filter coffee available before 10. Perhaps machine needs a while to warm up. Had a nice bacon sandwich on sourdough bread

The most famous cafe bar in Manchester. We serve great British staples and the best breakfasts, brunch, lunch & dinner in the Northern Quarter. Casual dining at its best. We serve booze from 10am until 11pm, we play BBC 6 music religiously and turn into an amazing bar in the evenings, serving the best and cheapest cocktails and beer you'll find. We also have a great happy hour 4pm-8pm each day which offer 2-4-1 cocktails, £3 pints and free snacks!
