Summary

With “very friendly service”, decent tapas-style food and a “beautifully designed” glass room boasting park views, this addendum to the revamped Whitworth Gallery is something of a “model museum café/restaurant” – so much so that “you wouldn’t think you were in the notorious Moss Side”.

Summary

“A beautiful glass café overlooking the park” and attached to the recently rejigged Whitworth Gallery; while the room is clearly “wonderful”, the food, from a “tapas-style menu”, is “quite good as well”, spanning “delicious veggie breakfasts”, “lovely cakes” and a “great lunch deal”.
