Liverpool’s acclaimed Bold Street Coffee has come to Manchester. In fact, they’ve come to Manchester twice: the original Cross Street location proved so popular, a new branch has opened up on University Green alongide the likes of Brewdog and TAKK.
What can you expect from this, the fourth incarnation of Bold Street Coffee? Well, take the idea of a coffee and breakfast cafe and then come up with the best possible version of that, filtered through Liverpool’s cosmopolitan foodie culture. And that’s just for starters. Speciality coffees from all over the world are available in your choice of classic format, whether that’s cappuccino, Americano or espresso, and there’s also all manner of iced coffees and herbal teas, as well as Arnold Palmers and hot chocolates for when Manchester takes a turn for the chilly.
The breakfast menu includes an essential full English breakfast but has much more to offer besides, with gourmet delights such as baked eggs with shakshuka, spicy and melting nduja, and toasted sourdough. There’s also delicious smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and plenty of vegetarian options, along with sweet treats such as French toast and sugary pancakes.
The butties menu covers all the expected bases but look out for masterpieces such as the steak sandwich, featuring 4oz steak, onion jam, crispy shallots, rocket, parmesan, and, again, toasted sourdough, because why wouldn’t you? These make a great sit-down lunch but are also perfect takeaways for those on the go.
Whether you’re a student looking for somewhere to caffeinate, eat, and study, visiting a someone in the area, or you’re on a well-deserved lunch break from work, drop into Bold Street Coffee for what we can only describe as a ‘cafe plus’ experience.
