Wonderful food and service

We have been going into Saints and Scholars for years and I am only writing a review as I was told that recently there had been some not very agreeable ones. A competitor perhaps? The food, service and the waiter are wonderful. Great value for money and our favourite restaurant in Didsbury. 6 of... read more

I don't want to skate these guys, as many of others have. I've passed the cute little cafe multiple times in the past 3 years, and today decided to give it a try. Walking in it wasn't how I expected at all, a jumble sale of random props and decor, wonky photo frames and posters cover the walls. This querky... More

Anyone looking for a reasonably priced breakfast should give it a try. Probably not the highest quality meat used but for the price very tasty. Make sure you add the white pudding, it is the best pudding I've ever had, not sure I'd this is homemade or not but it is delicious

Went for coffee and cake, Saturday afternoon. Service was uncomfortable and sullen from the old bloke and vacant looking young people. Ordered apple pie. It was not a pie. Was a small soggy slice of sludge with ice cream on it. Pies are made with pastry aren't they. Not the case here, £4 though. Saw better efforts at school. Coffee... More

Not just warm- stone cold.I sent it back and the same potato was returned with the addition of more warm... More

The tacky decor was dirty and dated, the service was slow and rude and the food and drink poor. The scone I had was served cold with squirty cream and cheap plastic pots of tasteless jam, and was also pretty expensive. amazing that it's still open. Avoid.

Popped into this place for a coffee but after seeing the menu and food I decided to order a bit more. Looks like a small coffee shop from the front but opens up as you go past the bar. The service was helpful and the food was very fresh. Will be returning the next time I am in the area.
