The Northern Quarter is located just off Piccadilly gardens in the centre of Manchester. It’s the hub of all things quirky, creative and alternative, and is bursting with an eclectic mix of independent businesses.
As the economy is recovering from the lockdown, a great way you can help local food and drink businesses, which are among the hardest hit by restrictions, is by simply grabbing a coffee and a sandwich from them rather than the big chains like Costa and Starbucks - because they’ll be fine anyway, right?
North Tea Power
This place doesn’t just do amazing coffee and brunch - they make jam. They ferment stuff. They make pickles and preserves. They make kombucha.

....and their website
Takk specialises in artisan coffee, and has three locations in Manchester, including the Northern Quarter. The owners were inspired by their travels in Sweden and Iceland, so their coffee shops have a distinctive nordic vibe.

Foundation Coffee House
In three locations across central Manchester, Foundation is a coffee house by day, and a cocktail bar by night.
