I have heard so much about this place. A great disappointment to find it has gone! Looking forward to seeing what comes in its place!

It's not a cheap lunch if you're tempted by the delicious salads and accompaniments but it's a great place to meet around the university and colleges on Oxford road. Lovely staff and fresh homemade food. Definitely one to visit. Students, a great place to work or meet in.

I love this place and come at least once a week. A bright cafe with ample seating on Oxford Road next to St Peters Chaplaincy. I only ever have the goats cheese but roast with salads but it is seriously the best lunch option around for miles in terms of health and feeling full! Their selection of salads are great... More

Love this place, live a 5 min walk away but still manage to go about 3 times a week. The coffee is great (beats the commercial brands by a mile) and the bacon sandwiches are the best I've had. Very generous with portions and prices are great too. They also have a huge range of vegetarian food, sandwiches panini's and... More

fresh food, freshly prepared and served - what more could you ask for from a café at lunchtime? Close to the university and the business school in Manchester

I really enjoyed the smoothies in which they had to offer here and for a price of £3.25, you can't really complain either, I also thought the food was also brilliant will be going back soon for sure

The place is always busy and the food is always good - service has mostly bee good (9/10 times) so the only complaint is that the prices are a bit steep, especially for uni students but always enjoy it when I treat myself to something at this cafe.

This place is a great example that fresh simple ingredients can be fantastic. The place is a little difficult to find amongst the University campus and and I was shown by a colleague, which helped. I had one of the nicest chicken 'chowder style' soups I've ever had with a beautiful nut roast topped with goats cheese, washed down with... More

This is a very good choice indeed, especially for vegetarians either on-campus or anyone travelling along the Oxford Road corridor. Whilst not cheap (and certainly not expensive) Aardvark offers a range of superbly wholesome and extremely tasty lunchtime choices and I have never once been disappointed with the food and service on any one of my visits. Today I had... More
