About Us

19 café bar is an independent coffee shop bringing Brooklyn café culture to Manchester’s Northern Quarter, with delicious pancake stacks, open bagels and more! Our philosophy is simple: great food, a cool vibe, and interesting drinks, at great prices.

Open 7 day a week, serving locally roasted coffee from Heart and Graft, along with a fresh and exciting brunch menu using locally sourced ingredients including “the best sausages in town”. We offer a friendly and cosy environment and a selection of cakes and homemade brownies to go with any brew we do. Choose a booth, a window table, or sit outside when the weather allows!

We are also a fully licensed bar enabling you to enjoy an Espresso Martini or something a little different with your brunch.

    Eggs florentine was fantastic, flat white is one of the best I’ve tasted in Manchester (I think it’s a local brewed coffee they use!) glad to have visited here, great atmosphere and music, would recommend

    Great little place, by far the best cakes in Manchester, plus artisan sausage rolls and great weekend brunch with pancakes and avocado/bacon on toast etc. Spotlessly clean and the staff are lovely. There's a nice mixture of traditional tables, sofas and outside tables - one of the few places where you can have a coffee or soft drink and a light snack outside in Central Manchester.

    Amazing little gem in the NQ. A bar where you can actually hear each other talk and the cocktails are amazing! Cosy atmosphere - I’ll definitely be back here soon.
