Travel around the world and you will find chain coffee shops on every corner, but you may as well stay home if you are going to visit them!
If you are in Manchester and in the mood for top quality tea or coffee, plus great sandwiches and cake, then get yourself along to North Tea Power. Whilst this is not a huge space, its cosy atmosphere is a great refuge from the often brutal weather outside.
This is a great spot during the daytime, get your drink and relax. The staff are very helpful and will happily talk you through the tea and coffee menu. I opted for the Gunpowder Green Tea on my last visit following their recommendation. The order was brought to my table and the waitress took me through the best way to let it brew and serve it.
The cafe also operates as an art space. So make sure you check out the latest offering whilst waiting for your brew.
North Tea Power was also named in the top 50 coffee shops in the UK by The Independent newspaper.
