Visited mid morning for some brunch as the service was excellent. The food was very good both the omelette and the smoked salmon. Will visit again when in Manchester was very chilled and a nice atmosphere.

Well that was unexpected. An excellent, flavourful, filling and high quality breakfast at a very reasonable price. My wife and I had always wanted to try this place out having walked past on our way into town on several occasions. Service was fast, the atmosphere...More
