| WHERE TO GET COFFEE IN MANCHESTER
Last weekend, we discovered an amazing little coffee place in Manchester’s Northern Quarter called Takk
Admittedly, the only reason we managed to find this place, was because we were Pokemon hunting, and we were following the path of Pokestops! – If you’re an avid Pokemon player too, you’ll understand!
| NORDIC INSPIRED
Inspired by their Scandi and Icelandic travels, Takk positions themselves as a cafe and creative space where they actively encourage people to come and work, with plenty of desk spaces, comfy chairs and breakout areas.
As you walk in, the atmosphere is extremely relaxed, the layout is very open and spacious, and there’s a very ‘cool’ inspirational vibe to the place.
The interior is well designed and contemporary with exposed bricks and low hanging lights, all surrounded by old school wooden desks and mismatched stools
You get the sense that alot of people come here to work from home, and there’s no pressure for them to leave as soon as they’re done eating or drinking. The staff are really friendly and polite, and I even saw them address some of the regulars, which was really nice as there seems to be a great community here.
| FOOD & COFFEE
We only stopped in for a quick coffee as we recharged our phones, but from what I could see around me – the food people were ordering looked delicious!
I got talking to the manager and he said they are constantly looking to use the best quality, locally sourced ingredient wherever possible – which I thought was a great business model and something amazing to shout out about!
We ordered a classic Cappuccino (I think it was around £2.80) which was full of flavour and beautifully presented – I love good coffee art!
They even sell their own coffee which I thought was really impressive, it made me think they are seriously passionate about their coffee
Our first impressions were great, so if you’re looking for something different, annd where to get coffee in Manchester that isn’t a high street chain, I would highly recommend you checking Takk out
I’ve already said we need to go back, to try their brunch menu! x
