Java Bar Espresso

Pair eats like the Tuscano baguette, honey roasted ham and mozzarella, or beef and ale pie with a selection of rare wines at this cafe.
A far cry from your average cafe, Java Bar Espresso takes its coffee and cuisine seriously. This is the place to head to for aromatic, strong espressos, signature coffee-based drinks and fine wines. Head out to the patio on a pleasant day for a hearty breakfast or a weekday lunch of crisp salads, sandwiches, and soups. Everything is prepared fresh daily with the choicest ingredients from original Greek halloumi to sun-dried tomatoes, extra-virgin olive oil and artisan charcuterie. Unwind over a platter of mezze or a European cheese board as you sip on a fruity Muscat or robust Cabernet. The combination of inviting decor, relaxed ambiance and affordable gourmet eats makes this one of the more popular dining spots in Central Manchester.

Hawksmoor

Kick off the night with a "sharpener" like Deansgate No. 2 followed by a charcoal-seared porterhouse with grilled bone-marrow at Hawksmoor.
Housed in a heritage building, Hawksmoor pays homage to its great location with retrofitted interiors, original 1950s lighting, and vintage wooden floors. Opt for seating at one of the plush blue leather couches overlooking the busy street, as you savor an array of steak specialities. Their award-winning menu features classic British cuisine with a contemporary twist. Share a plate of cottage pie skins with short-rib and potato mash or their famous triple-cooked chips. For something more substantial, the veal rump with fried oysters is an epicurean delight, while their Sunday roast brings home the comfort of a family meal, with a gourmet touch. Team up your plates with a selection of wines, craft cocktails and beer. Their prix-fixe menu is a great option with either two or three courses, and popular with the professional crowd. Save room for dessert; their "Ambassador’s Reception" inspired by Ferrero Rocher, is a delight.

The Gaskell House

Keeping all the literary connections aside, this house still has intriguing architectural motifs of the Regency Style to cherish.
A Grade 2 Regency-style villa described as 'Manchester's Neglected Treasure,' this was the home of famous novelist Elizabeth Gaskell. As a minister's wife she came into close contact with the many facets of life in Manchester during the Industrial Revolution. Beginning with the wide entrance hall you step where visiting literary giants Charles Dickens and Charlotte Bronte also stepped. Moving through the spacious ground floor reception rooms, which retain many of their original features, you realize how much this house must have been a haven from the harsh realities Gaskell exposed in her novels.
