We come to the Spiral Press a couple of times per year -whenever we visit Manchester. It is usually a highlight of our visit. Huge disappointment this time. Floor of food prep area was disgusting with paper and dropped or spilled food detritus. The cafe...More

I really wish the food was better here - and unless you want salad and are GF forget finding anything satisfying. There is a great place to sit in the cafe which makes even the mediocre coffee worth it.
