Visited Sugar Junction on Saturday. Had to wait a bit until tables were available. Got the afternoon tea, our plates and my tea cup were dirty. The plates had greasy smudges and my tea cup had tea leaves from another tea (different tea leaf from what I had ordered). They were replied without even an apology! Macaroon from the afternoon...

Ah Sugar Junction, how much I love your Mac & cheese! Although I DON'T love those random times when you decide to take it off the menu! Mac & cheese aside, Sugar Junction has a lovely homely vintage feel, and the service is unerringly friendly. I love the cakes too, they're always moist, flavoursome, and delicious. Cakes can so often... More

This was the fourth time I visited Sugar Junction, this time bringing along three friends. As always, the staff were lovely and helpful, the tea was some of the best I've tasted... and the cake... ohhh the cake. Such deliciousness!!! One of our party is a celiac, & the range of gluten-free cakes and food was fantastic for her. I... More

Ambience was great, staff were friendly and has a very pleasant quirkiness to it- perfect place to catch up with friends over hot drinks and sandwiches/cake. Had the Mediterranean panini which was delicious. Will definitely visit again when in Manchester.

I have heard great things about this place and wanted to like it. The ambience and atmosphere of the place is great with the chandeliers, old style decor around the place and plenty of tea on the shelves. The clientelle was mixed as people were stopping by for morning tea. I ordered some peach tea and a scone as I... More

My sister treated me to lunch here the other week for my birthday. It was a Saturday and busy. We were seated in the basement (really not as nice as ground level) and had to wait an inordinate period of time for any kind of service - menus, ordering drinks, ordering food, receiving both drinks and food, etc! We had... More

Retro/vintage style inside, absolutely gorgeous food! Visited with my boyfriend for lunch and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Staff were lovely and attentive. Can get busy, so maybe worth booking for larger parties! Oh, and they do gluten free! :-)
