Not wanting to pay £14 each at the hotel we were staying in my husband checked out the internet and found Cafe North. We walked through the wind and rain for about 5 minutes. The cafe was very busy but we only had to wait a couple of minutes for a table. We arrived around 11.30am on a Sunday morning.... More

Modern and airy, friendly staff and an interesting range of food, at sensible prices. Menu ranging from full English and sandwiches, to pancakes, waffles, ciabatta and burgers. Interesting selection of milk shakes including Mars and Snickers varieties, which were very good.

Popped in here for the second time today for breakfast whilst staying at the Crowne Plaza next door. Really friendly waitress met us at the door and seated us quickly despite it being quite busy. Food and drink delivered promptly and with a genune smile. The breakfast was excellent, really well cooked and with perfectly poached eggs. You can see... More

Description
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.
