Description: WE STARTED WITH AN IDEA.... Back in the beginning, we wanted to create an experience for everyone that visited us. To do this we created some pretty fundamental values - to serve really good food, to go that bit further for our customers and most importantly to make sure that everyone leaves Traders with a smile on their face. These values are still pivotal to everything that we do today. WE GREW TO BECOME PART OF MACCLESFIELD.... Over the past 30 years we have grown to become part of our local community, we take the time to understand our produce and where it comes from. This is because we want you to experience local, fresh, seasonal and (where possible) organic ingredients, that allow us to create you a menu that is full of flavour and hearty goodness. THE DAY TIME CAFE.... Today, with the help of our customers, suppliers and our lovely people that work with us, we have evolved to be a Day Time Cafe with a real buzz. Our menu is packed full of coffee and teas, fresh drinks and handmade, natural foods, to keep you going right through from breakfast to afternoon tea time.

We eat here every 4-6 weeks when we visit elderly relatives in the town. I've never been impressed by places to eat in Macc until I found this cafe. It's super clean, efficiently run and although you often have to wait to be seated on a Sat it's worth it. The food is top quality, served almost gastro - pub style for some dishes. Seldom have to wait long for food, great free coffee top ups and very friendly and kind staff. It's more than your average cafe but you get what you pay for. I'm fussy with food and choosy where I eat but this cafe is a wonderful find. We love it and will keep coming back.

Enjoyed lovely coffee and smoothie here with my family however when I asked for a portion of fries... They said your not allowed!!! You must order a meal and then get fries with it?! Seems very ridiculous that you cannot order a portion of fries! On the whole a very clean and friendly place, good coffee!

We always look for the local cafes or restaurants whenever possible and Coffee Traders was a great find.

We were staying at the central Travelodge and so needed breakfast and caffeine. Traders is spacious, staff were all notably attentive and genial and we were impressed with the culinary offerings (how's that for a Wednesday morning) - in other words, the food and coffee/tea were excellent.

One of the photos shows my local, free-range sausage, egg and tomato ciabatta (full English alternative!). Should I compare the coleslaw to a summer's day - no but it was clearly fresh, crisp and a bit of a delight in itself.

We've been visiting Coffee Traders since before my grandson was born and he's 4 now. The staff are wonderful with babies, children, elderly, in fact all customers. Led by Angie nothing is too much trouble.
It's always busy and often has a queue but service is pleasant and organised.
The food is freshly cooked and tasty and the desserts are good too. Equally if you just want to meet a friend for a coffee there is no pressure to eat and they will happily refill your filter coffee (obviously not speciality cappuccino/latte).
I haven't been in since the refurb but intend to this week.
