“Fantastic deli”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

I have had a cheeky brunch here on many occasions and always look forward to going back. The food is always made from fresh ingredients and is unbelievably tasty and good value. If you can ever get out of here without buying one of their 70+ different types of bread or fantastic deli products you are doing very well. The Barbakan has a very loyal local following but is one of those places that you shouldn't miss if you are going through Chorlton!

“The best delicatessen/bakery ever.”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

In Barbakan you have to keep one thing in mind: Everything is delicious, from croissants to scones and incredible sandwiches. The hot dogs on Saturday are the perfect way to start your day!

“good quality hot dogs with lots of sausages to choose from”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

This deli offers sandwiches, quiches and a good range of salad foods, as well as having a shop full of lovely food you can buy, such as a great selection of cooked meats, cheeses, breads, cakes, chocolate, pasta and so much more. Every time I come here I have to get a huge slab of the Polish raisin cheesecake, which I truly believe is the best cheesecake in the world. On Saturdays there is a hot food stand outside by the seating area. Here they offer a range of European sausages served inside Barbakan rolls for £3.50. You can get onions inside it and lots of good quality sauces too - all included in the price. They also offer a rice dish or some herbed potatoes, available as a side portion or main. Been coming here for years now, and the only bad thing I can say, is that there are no vegetarian sausages. Don;t let this stop you from coming if you are veggie though - there are hot veggie options inside the deli.

“Out standing”
Reviewed 2 March 2013 via mobile

Where are you going to get 50 home made breads under one roof, The Barbakan. Quality food and drink, this place is the local meeting place for all, great staff.
