This little atmospheric cafe in Withington offers a great selection of veggie food (at tables or a couple of couches) that is ideal for brunch or lunch with friends.

“Veggie Fish & Chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Yes, you heard correct. Home to the delicious Veggie Fish & Chips. Great food, great regular evening entertainment. The alternative décor makes for a very relaxing atmosphere, and the staff are always friendly. As a veggie, it's always great to find a vegetarian gaff that serves tasty and filling meals. But Fuel is also very popular amongst my carnivorous friends. If you're in the area, its worth a look in. Even just for a cup of tea and a cakey treat.

“Excellent veggie food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

I work in Withington so having somewhere that is reasonably priced and very tasty is great.

The venue is student chic, service a bit vague - but very pleasant - food excellent!

I have had most things and never been disappointed. A little gem

“Laid back Bohemian atmosphere, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My daughter is a student in Manchester and lives in Withington. Fuel is a nearby cafe-eatery we like to go to when I'm visiting. The decor is quirky, shabby-chic and they play good music. The food, although vegetarian is delicious. The falafel burger is fabulous, as is the haloumi "fish&chips" with mushy peas. Really nice choice of smoothies/shakes and a good selection of beers, wines and ciders. Staff are very friendly and the service is good. I've also been there on my own and it's a very relaxing place to hang out with a beer and a book/newspaper without feeling awkward. Prices are good and all in all it's a very nice place for casual dining, or just a drink or two. The upstairs room gets pretty busy in the evening, when the whole place has more of a cool student bar atmosphere. Will definitely go there again :)
