It might not want us to say such things, but there is something blatantly ‘hipster’ about Manchester, whether it wants to admit it or not. That shouldn’t be taken as a negative though, especially when it comes to the very important world of quality cafes. The beanies might not cover the ears and the tattoos might be plentiful, but that almost always leads to a great roster of cafes that take coffee as seriously as coffee should taken, by which we mean very seriously indeed. These are some of our favourite such places. Yes, there are bikes.
