Manchester’s food scene has become extra sweet thanks to the team at Loaf bakery. After all, not everything has to be high-end cuisine or hip street food – we all need a bit of sugar in our life now and then.
Loaf cakes were especially popular back in the 1960s and now they’re back in fashion, with Manchester’s Loaf bakery here to provide some tender loafing care to hungry city-dwellers.
The bakery is known for creating enormous loaf cakes that come coated in a dazzling array of fruity, chocolatey icings; not to mention loaded with wafers, biscuits and sweets. The vibe is retro-modern and tonal pinks. If you’re looking for somewhere hip and colourful to drop in for an indulgent lunch, look no further. The loaf cake is a captivating new trend on Manchester’s food scene, and if you haven’t tried one before, this is the best place to take your first steps.
Starting with a single venue, the team behind Loaf have now expanded their authentic and made-with-love business into two locations; the newest one being on Oxford Street, right in the heart of the city. The team are keen to get to know all their customers personally, interacting daily on social media, which makes Loaf refreshingly different to the typical corporate chain.
It has quickly become a hotspot for those in search of lunch with hand-made sugary goodness, Instagram snappers and influencers, date days with partners or friends, or just anyone who loves to be somewhere beautifully designed. There’s a particular kind of upbeat, cheerful atmosphere found in Loaf Mcr’s choice of venues. There is also a range of pastries, bagels, sandwiches, teas, coffees and hot chocolates available if you fancy making your visit into an afternoon out.
Also, if you’re looking to feed an office as a Friday treat, or need cakes for a party or function, drop by for a chat as they are more than happy to bake cakes to order. Try something a cut above the chain franchises – go for something sweet, made with loaf.
