Quick bite to eat. First time I have tried EAT. I enjoyed the chicken pot pie. This is really a very thick chicken soup full of vegetables with a square of puff pastry on the side. Good alternative to the usual sandwich or burgers.

This is a pleasant place to grab a coffee and sit down in the Arndale Centre, Manchester. The lattes are not as good as Greggs, but they're ok. However, the chocolate croissants are particularly nice and quite big, so it is worth a visit just for that. There isn't much more to review here; it is a one stop shop... More

We ordered about half the café and I got my bag out to be told I got a 10% discount on food! So that worked out to be a free croissant. I'll take that thank you very much. And the little mango lumps in the mango and lime blast (don't know if they were meant to be there or not?)... More

A quick re-fuel for family & friends whilst shopping. Had the hot & sour soup and a ham & cheese baguette and it was all very nice indeed.

Me and my friend were both shopping so we thought we'd have a sandwich or something here. There was no atmosphere, no happy staff socialising with the customers. I had a ham and cheese panini, it felt like I just had a big chunk of bread.. Very pricy and well..
