gone very downhill recently

2 Posted on 09 / 14 / 2014

been going here since i was little back when it was a veggie cafe, now its more of a gift shop that sells sandwiches. the menu is so limited now and its no longer vegetarian. barely any meat options and the service is so slow. the staff in here have always been very snobby as well

Pros: quirky gift shop
Cons: limited food, poor service

This is one of my fav places for lunch in Manchester. Many vegan options, great with kids too. If you're having lunch in Manchester City centre come here!

Vegan kitch heaven

3 Posted on 11 / 21 / 2012

Plenty of vegan options (yes, those sweet baked potatoes are heavenly!) and good coffee, but takeaway sandwiches tend to be boring/dry, and Forest Food savoury snacks are overpriced. Some staff can be a little indifferent, sometimes the service is slow. but guess you can't have it all! Once had a record shop tucked away in the corner and downstairs function room. Recycled plastic counter/window seating and reclaimed furniture. Good kitch shop at the back worth a visit, plus DVD hire.

Pros: Vegan options, Nice setting
Cons: Staff indifferent at times, Quite pricey, Gets busy, so not always room to eat

Oklahoma, Manchester

3 Posted on 05 / 20 / 2012

I rocked up to the counter of this place for lunch today and asked what was vegan friendly. I was offered lots of choice by helpful and pleasant staff and plumped for a starter of carrot and orange soup, followed by a shepherd's pie with a salad. Both were very pleasant and I'd have no issues having either again. The cost was just over a tenner.

The location is in the Northern Quarter of Manchester near the Arndale Centre and Victoria train station is 5 - 10 mins walk away. Its on the same street as Earth Cafe which is almost straight across the street. Given the choice of the two I prefer Earth Cafe since with the exception of dairy milk on request for tea and coffee, is much more vegan friendly. Oklahoma though is open hours Earth Cafe is not and provides a very useful alternative for when Earth Cafe is closed.

Pros: Vegan vego friendly, Helpful staff
Cons: Not quite 100% vego

Good grub

4 Posted on 04 / 22 / 2012

I keep forgetting about this place! Thanks for reminding me; I'm going to make sure I visit next time I'm in town. It's just your basic foodie-cafe stuff served in an eccentric looking cafe located within a shop that sells pretty much anything unusual and quirky. Have been here in the past and had vegan pasties, butties and hot chocolate. It's a nice welcome sit down when you're out shopping. So glad you guys have reminded me about it. I feel the urge to eat chick pea and spinach pasties and buy funky scented tissues and joss sticks!

Pros: great atmos, cheap and cheerful, lots of character
Cons: I keep forgetting about it!

Jacket sweet potatoes

3 Posted on 04 / 18 / 2012

Oh why don't more jacket potato place add the sweet potato option? That leaves Oklahoma as your only place to go for it. It's a nice cafe for a coffee or tea, with a little bric-a-brac type shop selling all sorts of stuff in the back (or front, depending on which door you used). The sweet potato I got was a little undercooked, and I tend to like my sweet potatoes very cooked and soft.

Worth a visit

Enjoyed sweet jacket potato with roased vegetables and goats cheese on one occasion and a toasted brown rye bread wtih rocket, yellow pepper and goats cheese on another. Would like to try more of the menu on more occasions and have the Green & Blacks hot chocolate (with ginger and orange) in my sights!! Not posh but enjoyable.

Potato tastic

4 Posted on 10 / 23 / 2011

Amazing food here, I don't know anywhere else you can get baked sweet potato on a regular basis!

A fantastic selection of toppings and filings is available and the Green and Blacks hot chocolate is marvellous.

The eclectic decor is very artistic, a nice relaxing atmosphere. Oklahoma is always busy, with good reason!

The shop also sells amusing gifts and crafts.

Pros: outside seat on a sunny day, sweet potatoes, hot drinks selection
Cons: busy
