Lovely spot for a coffee and snack and I have no complaints on the food or drink. However the bill was a little higher than expected considering what we got. Also the service was quite slow.

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor my 12 year old daughter and I had breakfast here on our last day in Manchester. We both ordered the pancakes and they were gorgeous, service was quick and I would definitely return on our next trip to Manchester.

Welcome to cafe north. The naming of the family business deriving from the surrounding Northen Quarter "NQ" wich is known as a basin for alternative and bohemian culture for the Manchester population since the early 90's. Since our opening in 2005 our family cafe has made sure that all our food is freshly made to order and the ingredients are locally sourced. the cafe itself is a ground floor, spacious and large enough to host wheelchair/pushchair users with dietary and allergy food needs.
