This fantastic coffee shop in Manchester’s Northern Quarter originally opened as a tea specialist, but customer demand has led it to transform itself into the place that we think serves the best coffee in Manchester.
The review of this coffee shop will appear in our book on tea and coffee in the UK’s cathedral towns and cities. Due out in 2013. For now, take a look at our earlier books…
Fancy a Cuppa? reviews 50 places across the UK for a good cup of tea or coffee and a nice piece of cake, a scone or other local delicacy. This is not a ’50 best’ tea rooms or cafes guide. Rather it includes places that have a story to tell. Read the full description of this book on the books page and if you like what you see you can buy it from there too.
Voted best coffee shop in Manchester at the 2012 Manchester Food & Drink Awards, a view confirmed by all the customers we spoke to. These guys have their own espresso, roasted by the wonderful HasBean, but they also have several single origin coffees from Square Mile in London. We had a small cappuccino (6oz); it was top quality, and you can tell from the way they serve everyone that there is a pride in their products. This place opened as a tea specialist (and you can still get 27 blends of loose-leaf tea, plus their original trademark ‘espresso’ tea) but they gradually developed into a coffee shop too as their coffee skills grew and through customer demand. Cakes brought in from various local bakers, including the award-winning Barbakan Deli.

Tib Street is one of the main streets of Manchester’s Northern Quarter. You may not spot the coffee shop at first if you’re not sure where it is: it’s part of a little row of shops on a raised area that appears at first to be hard to get to. But don’t worry, there are steps up at either end of the row.
