Simple pleasant cafe

The building is a nice place to visit and sit but a bit cold in winter. It’s a bit of an exaggeration to say there’s a wide range of options. They do a small typical cafe menu with a couple of vegan options. But what they do is nice and the brownies are good.

Lovely little cafe in a Victorian building

I stopped by on my discovery trip trough Manchester for a coffee and a treat. The coffee was good and the brownie super tasty! They don’t have many vegan options but everything is clearly labeled and the building is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture, so it’s worth a short visit if you are nearby.

I would give 5 stars if possible!

Despite not being a vegetarian restaurant, Oak Street Cafe goes to great lengths to cater for both vegetarians and vegans. They always have plenty of delicious vegan options - including cake (TRY THE BROWNIES)!
I can't visit Manchester without stopping by.

Pros: Plenty of vegan options, Tastiest cakes in the Northern Quarter!

Vegan Options

The Manchester Design Centre houses Oak Street Cafe Bar which has several vegan options on the menu, including toasties, soups, salads and cakes. We visited for lunch and although my husband is not even vegan, we both chose the mushroom toastie with olive and almond pesto and two teas, one breakfast and one Earl Grey with soya milk. The toasties were fabulous, so tasty with the pesto and the bread was lovely, soft and melt in the mouth. I need to revisit to try some of the delicious vegan cakes available.

Worth a visit

Popped in for coffee and cake late-Sunday afternoon and really pleased to see four vegan cake options. Coffee was pretty good, cake was pretty dry, but on the whole I would probably visit again if I were in the area.

Pros: Vegan food options, Decent coffee, Cosy surroundings

Cons: Dry cake
