1 19 Cafe Bar

Chatsworth House 19 Lever Street, Manchester M1 1BY England

Tripadvisor rating: 4.5/5 out of 312 reviews

Featured Review: “Great little gem of a find off Manchester’s main hub.

We didn’t have to wait too long for a table, the staff were friendly and gave a realistic time frame for a table to be ready.

“Lots of choices on the menu and I was spoiled for choice.

“The food was delicious, my only criticism would be that the ‘cheap ketchup’ left a rather odd aftertaste but that wouldn’t stop me coming back. I can not wait to return to.”

2 Mercado Deli Market

192 Burton Road, Manchester M20 1LH England

Tripadvisor rating: 5/5 out of 62 reviews

Featured Review: “We wandered down Burton Road looking for a new place this morning and so glad we went to Mercado.

“The coffee was excellent and the various snacks available were great. Salty and sweet options. The apple and cinnamon Tequeños were the highlight of the show; a must.

“The experience was only improved by talking to Vito who served us. I will be back very soon!”

3 Ezra and Gil

20 Hilton Street Northern Quarter, Manchester M1 1FR England

Tripadvisor rating: 4.5 out of 5 based on 541 reviews

Featured Review: “Great first visit here. Arrived for brunch on Sunday – already a queue then as several others put our name on the waitlist.

“The wait was only about 10 minutes and you won’t be disappointed! There’s a reason this place has a line!

“One of the best meals I’ve had in Manchester and not just for brunch. I had the Nduja scrambled eggs and the portion sizes were really generous and the flavors were amazing.

“My partner had the smashed pumpkin with beet hummus which was also amazing and very generous in portion size. Both dishes were so well presented and tasted amazing! The coffee is also good with all the milk combinations and choices you would expect.

“They deal with allergens brilliantly and just about anything can be made gluten-free. Really reasonably priced for a downtown brunch, especially one as good as this. I’ll be back as soon as possible!

Coffee 4 Takk

6 Tariff Street, Manchester M1 2FF England

Tripadvisor rating: 4.5 out of 5 based on 351 reviews

Featured review: “Visiting Manchester, checking out the city’s cafes and finding Takk’s.

“Excellent Icelandic style cafe, serving good quality gluten free lattes and cakes at affordable prices.

“Friendly and helpful baristas, who make great latte art! Minimalist Scandi style inside with old school tables and chairs.

“Everything is clean and tidy, including the toilets. Can’t wait to go back, next time I’m in town!”

5 Viennese coffee

74 Mosley Street, Manchester M2 3LW England

Tripadvisor rating: 4.5 out of 5 based on 397 reviews

Featured Review: “Called in for breakfast before flying home from a night out at the Christmas markets.

“Highly recommended food and service. I had the cinnamon sourdough French toast with mixed berries and Greek yogurt – delicious, my niece had the egg royale and said it was the best she had had, she also asked for a sausage with his dish and that was no problem.

“We also tried the Viennese specialty Mélange Coffee (chocolate flake cappuccino) which was delicious.

“With a glass of orange juice each, the bill came to just over £24 which we thought was certainly worth it. Will definitely stay there again next time we are in Manchester.
