Fancied a coffee in town and stumbled upon the Urban Ground in Bolton Rd off of the High Street. I got pounced on a bit by one of the waiters then he led me to the counter, which put me off a bit. Had a lovely Latte inside and a read of the papers. Nice pictures on the wall and... More

Urban cafe is a lovely little independent cafe (or coffee shop). Lovely tasting coffee, and the cake was superb. When we visited, it seemed to be one of the busier 'coffee shops', and it wasn't hard to understand why. Nice clean premises with seating outside

Both the iced coffee and flat whites were excellent, and we have high coffee standards! Would certainly return

A great place to stop for a coffee and the staff are really helpful. Excellent coffee here. There are tables outside in addition to inside which is convenient if it's sunny or you have a dog with you.

Found this via foursquare and scored well so popped in for a quick drink. We just had a coffee and an iced chai tea, both were lovely, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Great ambience and a laid back place. Will definitely visit again and try the amazing looking food that was on display!

Another amazing tasting coffee. Consistent quality and taste, keeps me coming back. Not the cheapest, but definitely one of the best I have tasted. Just goes to prove the old adage that "You get what you pay for". Looking forward to many more enjoyable coffee's.

Perfect temperature to drink, u can feel all the flavours working in to... More
