I've wanted to visit Sugar Junction for a long time now, but it's usually so busy I've struggled to get a table! Me and my sister managed to grab a table early lunchtime last week, and it was certainly worth the wait! Absolutely gorgeous lunch of poached eggs, asparagus and hollandaise sauce all washed down with a delicious pot of... More

A fabulous little vintage tea shop. Beautiful cakes, food is delicious and the staff are fantastic. Can't wait to return for the evening and enjoy vintage cocktails. This is a must if you are visiting Manchester. Just go and see for yourself. Can highly recommend the trio of cakes taster followed by a good loose leaf tea brewed in a... More

I visited Sugar Junction with my Mother this week specifically for afternoon tea after reading a review in sainsburys magazine, and we were not disappointed! Slightly out if the way in the northern quarter this tea room is quite unique, it possesses a very genuine and comfortable atmosphere and provides a very tentative service. The decor is beautifully vintage from... More

Had the eggs florentine which were great. There is a lovely relaxed feel to the Sugar Junction although I was there mid-morning in the week. I would definitely go back.

What a fantastic little tea shop! Wide selection of drinks and utterly delicious cakes, wrapped up with wonderful service from the staff in vintage dresses. A great way to enjoy an afternoon in Manchester.

Perfectly adequate milk shake and tea served here when we called one afternoon. The place was reasonably busy. Good selection of drinks, even if a little over priced. Cake selection was Ok, but not overwhelming. We had polenta lemon cake which was just Ok, but not worth the money. Main problem was the very slow service, as we waited ages... More

I fell in love with this little place. It has such a pleasant vibe and a very vintage atmosphere. The food selection is good, with something for everyone. And they do a delicious Chat Latte!

What has sugar junction got: 1) location, 2) bang on trend 3) reputation. However having visited a few times I'm disappointed. Other than the tea (I'm a bit of a tea snob!) which was fresh leaf, served at the correct temp. Everything else was a big disappointment. The selections of the cake was poor, on one cake the berry and... More

I'm really sad to be rating Sugar Junction a 2/5, however, this is based on my last 2 visits. I absolutely love the interior at Sugar Junction and the friendly staff, it's just a shame that the service hasn't been great recently and the food, on this occasion, was poor. I've been to Sugar Junction numerous times for cake and... More

I'd been meaning to visit here for ages and finally swung by a few months ago. With a delightfully sweet vintage interior it's wonderfully pleasant inside, I of course visited for tea and cake having seen their impressive list of teas on offer. If you love tea you'll certainly want to swing by, there's so much to choose from. The... More
