I have been on The Post Box many times with my social friends to have social conversation with coffee and cake. The decoration of books inside this cafe looks unique and impressive. It looks busy and nice place to spend couple of hours.

Freindly helpful staff happy to help. Good location in Chorlton if you fancy a bite to eat. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast for the family. My only fault was on our visit we had to put up with a number of flies around us while eating which was a little off putting. The place was clean but maybe a little... More

Came in for a coffee and breakfast and the service was great. Good coffee and a loyalty card system in place as well. Had salmon and eggs on toast which were lovely! Really easily accessible via bus or tram. Would definitely recommend!

I met some friends at the Post Box for brunch. It is an inviting place, cool vibe with a lived in feel, that made us all feel very comfortable. The menu was extensive with lots of different options to choose from and as a vegetarian I was really pleased. The service was friendly and accommodating. The portions were good sizes... More

Normally go to Didsbury but tried Chorlton for a change. Friendly greeting and great food. A pity Royal Mail weren't run like this well! Will definitely be back. Need to try the cakes....they looked even better

We visited here for brunch and had a very pleasant experience. I had the steak and blue cheese club on ciabatta bread and it was to die for! My friend had the chicken and halloumi, also on ciabatta and absolutely adore it! Coffee was brilliant and the staff were smiley and friendly! Overall, what more could you possibly want? We're...

I was very surprised at reading such a bad review of the Post Box I felt I had to write something that will assure people this isn't the usual case! I've eaten here at least 10-15 times and never had a bad meal! From the fab breakfasts to the sandwiches and cake and everything in between! I have not had... More

The postbox cafe is situated in the centre of Chorlton attached to the main post office. From the outside it is visually pleasing and has a pleasant seating area, but beware, the service and the food is dire! On the first occasion, we ordered a bacon and scrambled egg sandwich and a cheese toastie. After a thirty minute wait, the... More

I popped in for a quick breakfast and was pleasantly surprised to see a vegan option on the main menu. It arrived quickly and included hummus toast( on very nice bread), green salad, wilted spinach, grilled tomatoes and large mushrooms. It was really nicely seasoned and very tasty. Friendly efficient service and a great soya Americano too. Will definitely be... More

Nice place, seats a bit close together we were completely blocked in our table, the service was very slow we waited 40 minutes for our meal to arrive and it was only warm not hot. The manager was very polite and apologised for the delay with our food.

Thank Lorraine R
