We stayed at the nearby Crowne Plaza but didn’t fancy their offer of croissant and coffee so ambled along to Cafe North. Great menu choices (healthy & indulgent) good service and reasonably priced. All in all a great breakfast!

This is one of my favourite places in Manchester for Sunday breakfast. It tends to get quite busy after 11am, but it is well worth getting up "early". I must admit I usually have the pancakes because they are just delicious, very fluffy, and the...More

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.
