Full breakfast buffet, with variety of choices to suit most anyone. Great coffee and tea bar, with two Expresso machines. Service is good for a buffet, and much better for meals later in the day.

Dinner was included with my room rate otherwise I probably wouldn't have eaten in the hotel. I'm certainly glad I did the staff were excellent and diners are offered a free drink if they dine before 7pm. The lamb was cooked to perfection.

Dinner was very good, and value for money at £17 for 2 courses. Plus because we ate before 7 p.m. we received a free drink also.

A word from City Cafe - Double Tree by Hilton - Manchester
Savour award winning modern European cuisine in the heart of Manchester at the informal yet elegant City Cafe Restaurant, Bar & Terrace in Manchester Piccadilly. Enjoy the comfort of the modern interior or maybe in the warmer months try dining al fresco on the terrace. Enjoy a cocktail or a glass of fine wine while the award-winning chefs skillfully prepare delicious and seasonal dishes from locally sourced ingredients.
The a la carte menu changes seasonally and the market menu is updated bi-weekly, to ensure that the best value and quality are delivered.

If you're just dropping in for a spot of afternoon tea, the delicate finger sandwiches, fresh scones and aromatic teas make for a very tempting afternoon selection.
