Lunch stop here after wandering around Manchester all morning. Great menu with lots of variety and choice. Only thing is that the menu was a tad expensive for a cafe. Lovely mocha and friendly service.

Had a lunch break here and after spending ages looking at the menu and finally deciding because everything looked amazing I had the eggs royale and a mocha. Friendly service, delicious food, I will definitely return.

After reading reviews on TripAdvisor my 12 year old daughter and I had breakfast here on our last day in Manchester. We both ordered the pancakes and they were gorgeous, service was quick and I would definitely return on our next trip to Manchester.

Had breakfast here for two days, the veggie breakfast was great (best i had in Manchester), plenty of good smoothies to choose from, good bagels, overall a pretty diverse menu for breakfast. Tea was good as well, service was good, reasonable prize.

Welcome to cafe north. The naming of the family business deriving from the surrounding Northen Quarter "NQ" wich is known as a basin for alternative and bohemian culture for the Manchester population since the early 90's. Since our opening in 2005 our family cafe has made sure that all our food is freshly made to order and the ingredients are locally sourced. the cafe itself is a ground floor, spacious and large enough to host wheelchair/pushchair users with dietary and allergy food needs.
