Very average

Strategically located in Arndale centre. Cake and hot chocolate was very mediocre. Starbucks, Costa coffee and cafe Nero are all in a different league. It was a very 'okay' experience - nothing spectacular to sum it up. Bottom line: will not go back again

It was the tempting display of cakes that keeps attracting me to this cafe, although I am disappointed they no longer sell my favourite cake - the Frasier. The best part of this cafe is the cakes, it is downhill after that. The service is below par. The staff are more interested in talking to each other than to the... More

We took advantage of the offer on Amazon Local. I felt like I should give a review, despite it not been bad or great it frustrated me. The staff were nice enough but clearly students who didn't really have customer skills. They just did their job to a suitable standard. No interaction. A bit like at a service station, you... More

Very Nice cake. Terrible Coffee and non existent service from uninterested kids behind the counter. And the place could really do with a clean.

Visited whilst shopping the place was full and the delicious looking cakes drew us in. Very disappointing we unfortunately didn't have the cakes choosing savoury instead. Filled croissants £3.50 were tasty but luke warm and extra cost for salad £1.10 and 90p for coleslaw. We had 3 teas only 1 saucer. The staff were friendly enough but the place was... More

Second visit to Druckers and generally impressed again by the food especially the salad that accompanies the sandwiches. Only comment would be that this is not the cheapest place to eat although the surroundings are good.

I decided to buy local so to speak and I was really disappointed with the offerings here. Everything is priced at the high end but this place doesn't cut it in terms of quality food nor quality coffee. First of all the coffees are priced at the top end, and yet they are poor tasting and this is just no... More

Toasted tea cakes - really big ones!, carrot cake - moist, slighlty too much cream, but very nice snd an almond croissant.....all so delicious. Good selection of other cakes, and toasties. Glad we popped in. A real... More

I popped into Druckers on a recent visit to the Arndale. My friend wanted coffee and cake and as I'd never tried Druckers we decided to pop in. She's been to the ones in London a few times and said the cakes were yummy. She was correct, huge portions of cake and a lot of choice but no so good... More
