Welcome to cafe north. The naming of the family business deriving from the surrounding Northen Quarter "NQ" wich is known as a basin for alternative and bohemian culture for the Manchester population since the early 90's. Since our opening in 2005 our family cafe has made sure that all our food is freshly made to order and the ingredients are locally sourced. the cafe itself is a ground floor, spacious and large enough to host wheelchair/pushchair users with dietary and allergy food needs.
