right in the heart of ancoats


Something a little different...

Now we're settled into our new home it's time to launch our delicious new range of brunch dishes and to go with our sensational wine and beers list we've developed some tantalizing small plates to with them. 

We are now open until 9pm Wednesday to Sunday, so come down and enjoy some great beers and cocktails. The sun's going to be shining over the next few days so celebrate with 2 Aperol Spritz for just £10 or Prosecco for £18 per bottle, oh and bring your sunglasses!

Open every day for amazing breakfasts to awesome lunchtime sandwiches and of course, great coffee! And now beers, wines and evening small plates

Our Story

Way back 2013 we opened our first (tiny) cafe in Beehive Mill (the building on the left of the picture). Ancoats was dead - almost non-existent with more car parks than buildings. A few figures scurrying around like in a LS Lowry painting, before disappearing into who knows where. Tumbleweed blowing along the deserted streets. (ok maybe not that last bit!)


Seven years later Ancoats is unrecognisable. Yep, we picked a blinder! 


One thing that hasn't changed though and that is our love of good homemade food using great ingredients from people who are also passionate about what they do.


Our bread is baked around the corner at Companio bakery...

...while most of our fruit, vegetables, and herbs are from growers here in the North.

Using local farms means we are helping protect the livelihoods of farmers and their workers.

Our cheese now comes from Yorkshire and our butter from Cheshire.

Our coffee and teas are from Atkinsons of Lancaster

Our house blend is 25% Columbia, 25% Brazil, 25% Peru, 25% Guatemala. We sell beans, ground, or if you want  just a great flat white!
