Lovely Staff & food is what it says on the tin. However, was a little bland for me and our coffees were cold. I had avocado & poached eggs on toast with sun dried tomatoes (but only had 2 of them). Boyfriend liked his full...English though. I’m sure if I told staff about the drinks they would have been accommodating and I would go back to try something else.More

Great food and friendly staff. I would have rated 5 stars but there was a bit of a wait for a table and there was no option to pre-book via the website or Opentable. I tried to call to see if I could book prior...to visiting but no answer (they must have been busy). Other than that, we enjoyed the atmosphere and food- decently priced, good portion sizes and delicious ☺️More

We had to wait outside for a table but it was worth the wait. It was really busy but the pancakes were to die for! The staff were busy but customer service was amazing. Loved it!

You have to wait outside to be seated, which is fine, but the staff just walk past you without acknowledging your waiting. I would understand thus if this cafe was full, or even half capacity because of Covid. But there’s 3 empty tables outside. I...asked the guy behind the counter if we can sit on an empty table and order food outside, the to which he replied “what do you mean?” I said “there’s empty tables outside can we sit on one and order food” He said we aren’t sitting Anyone at the moment. Again, I’d understand if the staff were rushed off their feet, which they weren’t, just standing about.More

Hi Adam, I must say we our so disappointed to read your review. Firstly there was a queue which initially would suggest that it was busy. There are also signs up to ask you to wait in the queue, not to go inside and insist...More

Waited in line for about 15 minutes just watching staff ignore everyone. We was seated outside which was fine. Then the alarm bells started knives and forks put on the table which were filthy and covered in grease, so we got them changed. Then our...tea came out asked for sugar which was cubes and could see everyone has had hands over them so skip that. Then the breakfast came out one looked nice but the full English was cold beans zapped in microwave and look like they sat there for a while the egg was cold and sausages tasted different bacon was still squealing but said to the other half not eaten anything so gonna eat what's the worse that can happen. We asked for tomato sauce which came in a little dish with traces someone had used this. So we paid up and head off to the football museum 20 minutes in started rushing to the toilet cold swet being sick. So left there and back to the hotel where we stayed all day and night missing soccer aid due to more throwing up Thanks guysMore

Best breakfast I had all week, I ordered the Sweet Potato Hash with Poached Eggs, it was Devine a real treat, (I’m a farmers daughter) and the eggs were amazing (I know what I’m talking about when it comes to Fresh Free Range Eggs) 😋...I will definitely be back next time I’m in Manchester 😍More

We had brunch here a couple of days ago. Both dishes were delicious. I had smoked salon, creme cheese on a bagel and the other half had a full English. Very tasty indeed
