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.

“Amazing Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Excellent from the moment we walked in the door, greeted by a friendly young lady, menu looked great and breakfast was one of the nicest I've had. I would definitely be going back on my next visit to Manchester

“Awesome breakfast!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Called in for breakfast, staff were very friendly and professional.

The decor was really nice, modern but still cosy.

Meal was really well cooked & tasty food, decent portion and a rack of thick yummy toast.

I'm vegetarian and there was loads of vegi options which made a refreshing change.

The only slight negative was that the cakes didn't look homemade but it was a bank holiday Monday, there may be some homemade cakes on a normal day.

On the whole it's really outstanding place, a little hidden gem. Will definitely be returning soon.

“Fantastic place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

We visit Manchester regularly and have usually eaten breakfast at our hotels however this time I decided to do some research and found this place with great reviews. We arrived for breakfast on easter Saturday and found very welcoming staff, friendly and efficient. There was a great choice for breakfast including smoothies all homemade. The prices were very good value for money and I have to say when our breakfasts arrived we were thrilled to see well cooked and presented clean food.Eggs cooked perfectly, a proper Lincolnshire sausage and good bacon, along with mushrooms, beans and cooked tomato accompanied by a plate full of warm buttered toast. We enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere so much we returned over the weekend for lunch, great paninis!!, and of course breakfast on each other morning of our stay.
Regardless of whereabouts we stay in Manchester this will be our preferred choice for breakfast for sure , well worth a walk, cant wait to sample the evening menu :)

“Spot on for breakfast or brunch.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

I have eaten here 3 times and on each occasion I have not been disappointed. The variations of Eggs Benedict are fantastic and are probably the best I've ever eaten. Nice surroundings, polite staff and quality food make this a must if you're in the area and are looking for somewhere to eat. This will become a regular now. Superb!
