Proof that chain coffee can taste great! It’s their own roast and a hit amongst Manchestonians


The ham & cheese toastie, served alongside a warm pain au chocolate and cappuccino were the perfect pick-me-up for our chilly March marathon around Manchester


All your usual cafe favourites here; a good number of hot & cold sandwiches alongside scrumptious baked cakes, pastries and freshly ground coffee


Americano (£3.00), cappuccino (£3.30), tea (£2.50), cake slices (£2.69), tray-bakes (from £2.69), Patel de Nata (£2.39), croissants (from £2.69), doughnut balls (£1.29), muffins (from £2.69)


Storage is limited at their site here in the heart of Manchester, although there is nearby council provided racking. It makes the perfect start / end ride location for those living or stopping nearby


Inside there’s a good number of tables to accommodate small to medium sized cycling groups, larger groups may prefer a slightly quieter coffee at the Rapha Clubhouse just a short cycle away


The site we’ve featured here is found slap bang in the centre of Manchester, however once out of the hustle and bustle you’ll find superb (if not long) roads towards the stunning Peak District National Park and suburbs surrounding this busy metropolis

Found throughout towns and cities of the north-west you’ll find this popular artisan coffee chain serving up your perfect caffeine fix accompanied by tasty cakes, pastries, sandwiches and toasties too. 

Early risers will find a selection of croissants (plain, almond or chocolate) alongside pain au raisin, Patel de Nata (Portuguese tarts), muffins and toast. Throughout the day there’s a selection of hot and cold sandwiches and toasties on display, the ham & cheese (pictured) being delicious.

For those looking for something sweet delights on our last visit included a vegan & gluten-free friendly chocolate & coconut flapjack or blueberry Bakewell, alongside millionaire shortbread, double chocolate brownies, donut balls, carrot cake and range of loaded cookies. 

Storage is limited at their city centre site in Manchester (although there is nearby racking), however for a quick pitstop or for the start / end of a ride it’s the ideal meeting point when cycling around this hip, bustling city.
