Called in with friends shortly after 9am. Ordered the £8 cooked breakfast, which didn't disappoint. The food was plentiful and cooked to perfection. The menu is large, and competitively priced, whilst the staff are pleasant and the decor tasteful.

A weekend away we visited twice- it was that good. We ordered a north breakfast and a poached egg north breakfast (we swapped on the second day). This was world class cooking!! I have not experienced a greater cooked breakfast- all done to perfection, eggs how you want them, and as I was 'low carbing' it, I swapped beans and... More

Went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Seated straight away on settees. Lots of seating. Very chilled out and laid back. Lovely staff. I had a small vegetarian breakfast which was great and really reasonable price. Varied menu. Would recommend to anyone. Lots of people chatting and on computers. Not rushed at all, even though it was consistently busy. My... More

Description
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.
