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.
Booked table which was ready for us on arrival. Prompt friendly service without being over the top.Good tea in pleasant surroundings. A good place to go.
Very cosy and quirky which was the reason for going in the first place....lived up to our expectations. Food was very good and staff were great. We'll go again which is my best recommendation.
The tea room is homely and a little ‘old school’ quirky. Somewhere you can feel relaxed away from the hum-drum of the world. What else can I say. Great food. Lovely coffee. Wonderful ambience. Good service. Really lovely waitress.
