Few things could be more British than a nice cup of tea, and in Didsbury, there is a place serving up superlative brews. The Art of Tea is a cafe dedicated to everyone’s favourite beverage, which they supplement with superb food and an abundance of live events to keep the loyal punters of south Manchester coming through their doors on Barlow Moor Road. Pop in for a brew, a bite to eat, one of their speciality beers or for a full meal.
Manchester is full of superb cafes, and down on Barlow Moor Road in Didsbury, there is an independent venue that makes a strong claim to be the best of the lot. The Art of Tea offers everything that one would want in a neighbourhood cafe: speciality teas and coffees, superb British food, exhibitions and events, free WiFi...they even have an adjoining bookstore, so you can pick up some quality reading material as you while away an afternoon in their friendly confines.
The Art of Tea is open from 9am every morning, and their morning specials are well worth a visit early doors. They serve British breakfast classics – full English, Welsh rarebit, bacon and sausage butties – as well as favourites from further afield, like eggs Benedict. Lunchtime means sandwiches, homemade soup and a variety of salads, and evenings bring pizzas, a wide range of real ales and hand-selected wines. Book a table at their cafe on Barlow Moor Road in Didsbury for one of the finest dining experiences in Manchester.
Great service in a pleasant environment. Good food and of course Tea. Great secondhand bookshop connected, ideal for buy a book, have a cuppa. Recommended
The Art of Tea is synonymous to Didsbury without the pretence. Thursdays open mic with Matt is a warm fennel whilst the pizzas are built, if you’re lucky with extras on top, never had a bad dish served at this place. It’s an Aladdin’s cave of music, tea, books, tea, picture framing more tea.....then cake, with beetroot! WTF! :)
The Art Of Tea is one of our favourite places for food. It has a lovely ambience, the people are very lovely and welcoming and the food and drink is absolutely spot-on. We have had the lunch menu on several occasions, but this time around we went there for an evening meal and it did not disappoint - absolutely off the scale! Fantastic.
