If you want to chill after - of before - shopping, this is the place to visit. Great coffee, snacks - yes dairy free snacks too - and home made food. And admire the artwork while you sup your coffee.

We always pop in here for lunch when we've visited the Trafford Knitwear outlet. Owners and staff are always lovely - helpful and friendly and food is first class. Well done ladies!

Dirty cutlery and a strange tasting quiche served with a wilted salad. A visit to this cafe with an old navy chum. Left me with abdominal gas and diarrhoea. Also where's was the art?

Rose A, Owner at Art Cafe, responded to this review

We are sorry nothing was to your liking Roger. You seem a very hard gentleman to please as all your reviews of places are 'terrible'. I am mystified as to your comment 'where was the art' as the cafe is situated in the gallery, which has approximately 100 pieces of art on the walls. Are you sure you were actually... More

A sunlit haven of warmth and tranquility with a view of Castle Street, an inviting array of drinks and snacks, and friendly welcoming staff. The paintings of local artists adorn the walls. The gluten-free apricot macaroon is a joy for the tastebuds. If you are fortunate to have the opportunity to visit, do try the Frobisher bumbleberry. It smells like... More

Chosen today, for two people, delightfully-made sandwiches, substantially-filled with prawn and avocado, smoked salmon and cream cheese, accompanied by salad, crisps and coleslaw, on wholemeal, seeded or white bread. Reasonably priced. Three areas to choose from to sit...on comfortable settees or at tables. Surrounded by Art work, eg, displays,framed paintings, No disabled access as the cafe is upstairs on top...

You have to go upstairs to the art cafe. It's always a bonus to be able to see art pieces when eating. The cafe has 3 Room areas one with a panelled wood wall which I think is quite nice .and 2 other rooms overlooking the street with art for sale. When we arrived it was quite later in the... More

Hi Sandra Thank you for your review and we are so sorry that your experience was not as it should have been. I am sure you can appreciate that cleaning jobs do have to be done at the end of the day, and it was unfortunate that you arrived just after the floors had been mopped. We have taken on... More
