The first coffee shop I visited in Manchester was always going to hold a special place in my heart, but it’s not just the nostalgia hit that keeps me coming back. Fig + Sparrow also perfectly combines two of my favourite hobbies; people-watching and drinking coffee.
There’s never a dull moment in the Northern Quarter and there’s no better place to watch all of the goings-on unfold than from a window seat in F + S. On a nice day, grab a street-side seat and you’ll find yourself right in the heart of the hustle and bustle.
I’m more about the quiet life so for me there’s nothing better than making myself comfortable inside and losing hours in the heaven of a good book and coconut milk cappuccinos. The coffee shop playlists are always spot on too!
F + S isn’t just about great coffee though. This self-proclaimed Coffee & Design House is a treat for the eyes too showcasing a selection of artwork and homeware from local designers. It’s hard to leave empty-handed!
