Visited with a group of friends for afternoon tea, issue after issue. Firstly, booked in advance however table was not set prior, we therefore had to wait to be seated. Secondly, planned to have prosecco afternoon tea which took 20 min plus to get a glass of prosecco. The sandwich variety was disappointing & did not appeal to ourselves, we... More

The venue looks ok, but don't be fooled. I asked for a steak medium rare which was neither medium or rare and and was pointless Avoid if you like a good evening meal but if subway is closed then eat here.

City Cafe is a nicely designed space with lots of natural light. Service is fine. The breakfast buffet is very good, definitely above average and good value for money. The fresh fruit selection is particularly good, and there are a range of hams cold meats and smoked salmon. The hot buffet offers all the standards, including black pudding. The sausages... More

Came here on Saturday as big group. When we arrived we were told we only have the table for 1 hour 30 mins, we wasn't advised if this when we made the booking. The girl said we can then go in the side bar afterwards. The afternoon tea was just average. I've had much better closer to home and for... More

Ordered the afternoon tea, the sandwiches were stale and had no flavour, choice of pastries provide very basic, given no choice what could have. Scones very dry. Had to call waiter several times before finally came to provide fresh tea.... More

Thought there wasn't a huge choice on the menu. Although the food we chose was freshly cooked and delicious. Seemed to take their time to serve drinks. Our server was attentive and friendly.

My friend had an offer from Travelzoo for Afternoon Tea with a glass of prosecco for £12.50 (normally £19.95). We checked in at reception and advised we had the offer. We were taken to our table straightaway - already set for us - and asked if we would like our prosecco or tea/coffee first. We plumped for the prosecco first... More

Description
A word from City Cafe - Double Tree by Hilton - Manchester
Savour award winning modern European cuisine in the heart of Manchester at the informal yet elegant City Cafe Restaurant, Bar & Terrace in Manchester Piccadilly. Enjoy the comfort of the modern interior or maybe in the warmer months try dining al fresco on the terrace. Enjoy a cocktail or a glass of fine wine while the award-winning chefs skillfully prepare delicious and seasonal dishes from locally sourced ingredients.
The a la carte menu changes seasonally and the market menu is updated bi-weekly, to ensure that the best value and quality are delivered.

If you're just dropping in for a spot of afternoon tea, the delicate finger sandwiches, fresh scones and aromatic teas make for a very tempting afternoon selection.
