Newsworthy Coffee and Bagels Hot Off the Presses
Manchester Press is one of those cafes worth a repeat visit. Though when I first went there I thought it was called MIP. (Or M arrow P!)
 

It's hidden in a side alley so be prepared to search for it.

We got there just after opening time and were surprised to find the place packed, along with a politely waiting queue of people adding their names to the list.

After about twenty minutes we were ushered to our table, a joint affair with other diners, with a massive drip coffee machine in the centre.

I ordered a vegan bagel and my partner had the avocado and cheese with salad bagel. Both were delicious and highly recommended.

The service was good. Smiling people happy to answer questions and the food didn't take too long.
 

But, of course, the main reason we were there was because of the rave reviews about their coffee. And we weren't disappointed.

My long black was thick, juicy, with caramel, vanilla and chocolate nuances. My partner's soy cappuccino (no chocolate) was frothy and tasty, with a monkey face swirled into the soy foam. (Usually extremely difficult to do with soy!)
 

The atmosphere was friendly and the place had a fun vibe to it. We'll be going there again next month!
