Although not exclusively vegan the Soup Kitchen offers a great range of vegan food. Options change daily and the food is really nice home cooked food. It’s satisfying, no gimmicky vegan food and no junk.

We popped in here twice, when we were in Manchester. The Sandwiches are really good and the english breakfast tea is nice too. Prices are pretty good, 4,95 for a big sandwich and around 2 for a pot of tea. The staff is reeeeally friendly...More

I had soup and sandwich the other day for lunch, the sandwich was ok but the “chicken and sage” soup was basically parsnips in oily water. Disappointing.

A great place to go for a chilled lunch and a few drinks. Rustic feel inside and no fuss service with a great selection of soups and salads available. Good night atmosphere as well but I'm yet to try the basement.

I use to go often to have lunch in Soup Kitchen. The place is really cool, food is very good even if a little expensive considering the kind of plates they serve. The service is not so good, very slow and not so kind.

We came for the Sunday roast and it was great! The food is prepared in a canteen style where everything is laid out ready on hot plates behind a counter so I wasn't sure how fresh or hot the food would be. The only option...More

Hey, we were there for the same reason. There is on street parking outside but not much. If you have gear, park there and drop off stuff then I'd move to Spear St (just up the road). It's only £10 for 24 hours. Have a good... More
