Nexus Art Cafe, Manchester
Posted on 07 / 03 / 2010
I've just been to this place and it has me thinking a little.
When I seen the menu I wasn't bursting with enthusiasm. I asked what would be good for me as a vegan vego. I was directed to the falafal sandwich otherwise it would be the likes of a baked potato or a salad. The menu is largely targeted at omnivores but maybe just under half the menu is vego friendly. Most of the the vego stuff is aimed at lacto / ovo veggies.
I had the afore menttioned falafel sandwich and a soya latte to drink. Both were perfectly acceptable. While this eatery wouldn't be my first choice especially with so many 100% vegetarian places in central Manchester (Earth cafe for example is just a few monutes walk away), it does offer an interesting option as a compromise venue if you are eating with someone who insists on eating meat.
There is much more to this place than just a cafe. They have gigs, plays, art and interestingly is the Saturday night 2 am cafe. This is bascially when it opens at 2 am to give revelers somewhere to go and chill until 6 am if waiting on the trains services to out of town start again in the morning.
