Foods ok at best depending what you get, and It's always quick so that's a plus I suppose. Would have given three stars but it's not clean (food on floor and stained ceiling from some sort of leakage) therefore marking down to two.

Fab cafe. Had brunch in the cafe whilst in Manchester. Had to wait a little bit for a table because it was so busy but the waitress kept us informed. We had excellent cooked breakfasts and tea. Quirky atmosphere but good food at reasonable prices.

Visited after a morning of shopping. The place was busy but was quickly sat down at a table. The food arrived which we didn't wait too long for. Huge portion & absolutely lovely. Friendly staff & excellent service.

Lovely breakfast excellent value for money. Bacon was excellent, sausages ok, the tea was spot on. We love the artwork, which makes this Cafe a destination. Been meaning to come for ages, and it didn't disappoint.

I love it here. Welcoming waitresses and just good simple, filling food. I've been here for breakfast and lunch and both occasions have been good. Meals come in at just over a fiver and for the heart of Manchester I think it's brilliant!
