Back my go to.  

You have the wonderful Atkinsons , with a ton of choices of filter and espresso, and in the food hall some fantastic food , too much yummy goodness to choose from. I wouldn't miss it. Beyond that, Tak

Mackie Mayors for food and coffee - coffee wise - Atkinsons and Wolf House , both doing really nice espresso and filter. Food offerings are superb from the stalls. North Tea Power were a square mi

Head over to the Northern Quarter. Idle Hands on Dale St is a must. Round the corner is Takk on Tariff St - great coffee and food. Nearby is Northern Tea Power on Tibb St - offering well made Hasbean coffees. If you want to be uber trendy - check out Foundation just off Dale St - offering Origin coffee. Big place, lots of choice but quality control, coffee-wise, not up there with the other three.

Double endorse your comment about Coffeefix in Gatley.

All types of coffee they serve are really excellent and the food is nice as well.

Just be careful don't trip over the bikes.

Hey I am up in Manchester for 2 days staying near Piccadilly. Going to check these recommendations above out and mrboots2u has previously recommended atkinsons. Is that Mackie Major? Is this still good?

Yes, I went to Idle hands on Monday was not pleased I complained as you do, I asked for pour over 3 mins later he came over with it,  I give a few minutes to see if he was taking the piss nope, I said I asked for pour over and he took it out the brewer not pleased at all, said I off and not drinking it said he would re do it, should of done it first time round then. Well the others are dearer he said and! so I told him I'm not skint.

I took a gamble and went to idle hands for breakfast. Had a nice flat white and delicious overnight oats. Then went to atkinsons at mackie major and had a long black yirg. It was really good. I think from a coffee perspective atkinsons is taking things more seriously. Limited food menu and the baristas looked on it. I understand Jony’s feel after idle hands. They were not very friendly and defiantly did not seem onto it and passionate like the atkinsons folk. The flat white was decent though and they had a choice of a kiss the hippo blend or a craft house Tanzania. By Plymouth standards it was good.

My go-to near the office is Fig & Sparrow (Oldham St) - think they use locally roasted Grindsmith beans.

 Also a +1 for Foundation (Lever St), Ancoats Coffee Co (Redhill St) and Atkinsons (Mackie Mayors).

Spoilt for choice in the NQ.

Any one venturing further south to Trafford and beyond should definitely check out Grapefruit just outside Sale Tram stop. Amazing selection of beans, great filter and espresso, wonderful chat and a nice vibe. It's only a hatch right now but it's so with a visit!

Next time in the area I will jump on the tram then and try it out.
