Its a comfortable cafe which served generous, tasty plates of food. Great value. Mushroom, spinach and feta ciabatta was really good. Staff were friendly and didn't mind the students working and chatting in the corner.

Stopped off for a quick bite to eat and was not disappointed. Ordered a sharer platter that came with delicious salads, hummus and a hallomi/courgette/tomato and sweet chilli combo. Was so good I instantly went to the shops to buy ingredients for lunch that week!...More

This place does not disappoint. The food is cooked very well. Might not be sophisticated but tastes good. The staff is always friendly. Good customer service. This place is a very good chilled out place.

Cheap, cheerful and tasty. Also with more than a real hint of independence and character. Great selection of beers as well.

One of the best veggie cafes. Good hearty food in massive portions. Great for breakfast lunch or dinner. Great selection of beers and the house wine is cheap as chips!

The menu is something akin to one from a veggie cafe in the 1980s/90s. Very old fashioned and unimaginative. As a vegan there is virtually nothing to eat and what little choice there is is laughable. We asked if we could have the vegan breakfast...More

Visited here with a friend for breakfast. I thought the breakfast menu was interesting and reasonably priced. You have to order at the bar, and they don't take a name or table number. I worry that at peak times they might struggle to find you...More

I heard about this place from long time Manchester residents who like the place, they were students here and told us it has a good rep. I agree that this place is probably popular with students, and that when it first opened it was probably...More
