Earth Cafe, Northern Quarter
As a long-time veggie who works in Manchester’s Northern Quarter I thought it was high time I got myself some lunch at the Earth Vegetarian Cafe and Juice Bar. I wasn’t disappointed.
The menu is nice and simple with two changing specials on the hot buffet with veg and rice sides, from which you can choose a combination of anything you want for set prices, including both specials of the day if you can’t decide. I chose the tomato and spinach dahl which was tasty and the accompanying rice and veg nicely cooked and fresh. This being the North, gravy was on offer too. Just the ticket on a cold day. There’s also a salad bar, but it was far too nippy to consider that.
I bought an oaty cake with dates and banana for dessert, but must confess it’s wrapped up in my handbag as I was just too full to scoff it.
The cafe is down the stairs in front of the Buddhist Centre; a little trip up to its tranquil shop finished my lunch hour off nicely.
