The Sugar Junction can be a hard place to get in on a weekend. So I was surprised when me and my friends were able to walk in and be seated straight away. We decided to order 3 cocktails all of which were lovely. Would definately go again in the evening!

This was my second visit to sugar junction, last time was for lunch and this time was for breakfast. Both times the food has been really good, the cafe is quirky and comfortable, the service is efficient, and the chai latte is fabulous! It is my place of choice to go to when I go to Manchester!

The Northern Quarter in Manchester is full of really lovely and quirky places. They are hidden behind the glossy shopping mall and the generic coffee shops. There you can find local cafes that are individual and different. I don't know about you, but I rather have my tea at home rather than go to Costa. It's just too predictable and... More

I took my daughter to Sugar Junction for afternoon tea as part of her birthday weekend. Having pre-booked a table near the window everything was ready when we arrived. The staff were exceptional and explained what was included in the afternoon tea and also the choices available. With so many teas to choose from they gave both my daughter and... More

I visited Sugar Junction for the first time with my Mother in Law as we were out shopping and had looked up good places to eat before hand. Despite not being familiar with Manchester you were easy to find. We hadn't booked and it was a warm Friday so I wondered if we would have to wait for a table,... More

Manchester's Northern Quarter is awash tea and coffee shops of every shape and size, and I've been to many - trust me. And reviewed them here on Trip Advisor. However, I have a real soft spot for this vintage gem with its quirky wallpaper, bits of 1940s furniture and tables and 1940s music. I've only been here for breakfast so... More

I visited Sugar Junction in the afternoon when in Manchester for the day. I enjoyed my eggs benedict & coffee for brunch that much that we stayed a couple more hours for cocktails and homemade cake! The place was very busy with people waiting for tables all afternoon, great atmosphere, service friendly. I will be back for more cake next... More

From the mis-matched linens to beautiful decor and vintage crockery, Sugar Junction is one of the best afternoon tea joints I've ever been to. Staff are very lovely and attentive though don't smother you. Delish home made cakes and sandwich are lovingly prepared and presented and there is a TEA MENU! Lots of choice and all yummy. Well worth a... More

Booked this for my daughters birthday, extremely disappointed and wish we had gone elsewhere. Table booked for 1.00 and had us booked for 3.00 so had to sit downstairs where there was no atmosphere whatsoever. Ordered the macaroni cheese as this is one of our favourites, it came in an enamel dish with no trimmings and after the first two... More

Hi Lynda, Thank you for taking the time to write us your response. Such a shame that you didn't tell us on the day that you were un-happy with your Macaroni & Cheese. We are more than happy to change any dish that a guest is un-happy with, you just need to let us know. We are also looking into... More
