Nice atmosphere and decor. A really good place to be able to sit and chat, good space between tables. Coffee was hot and tasty, but service was quite slow on drinks.

Not sure what's happened here. This place used to be nice. Called in for a coffee. Table had been cleared of plates but still had all crumbs on. Seats were dirty. You could smell the kitchen on your shirt when you left.

This is one of my favourite breakfast / brunch places in Didsbury. The full English is a perfect size and the sausage patty is amazing. They offer great vegan options and gluten free. Perfect place to cater for all your friends needs. Excellent decor great staff. Reasonable prices for Didsbury too.

Been to Expo Lounge three times now (baring in mind there are plenty of places to eat in Didsbury!). Huge choice of vegetarian food and have loved each meal I've had. Fresh, homemade and tasteful. Quick and friendly service. Would definitely recommend.
