It’s not often that I try places outside of Manchester City centre. When I do it’s usually somewhere local to my home town of Bury. If you read my foodie posts, you will know that I am a champion of the stunning collection of restaurants in Ramsbottom. However, apart from my deep love of The Clarence pub, their amazing food & drinks, there hasn’t been much else going on in Bury town centre. Until now.
Over the last 12 months, some independent shops, cafes & restaurants have been popping up, which are definitely worth bragging about. My current favourite is Bloom Coffee co.
This lovely cafe looks as thought it’s been plucked straight out of Tib Street in Manchester. It’s interior, is like a modernised & minimal version of central perk & I love it.
After hearing lots of people talk about this little coffee shop, I figured it was time to check it out for myself. I was really impressed with the menu & the options on offer. Whilst I’m used to the menus in places at Trof or Evelyn’s, I never thought I’d get to see this type food in my home town!
They offer a great selection of teas & coffees which are right up my alley. I love natural caffine free fruit teas / infusions & I have been wanting to try a proper Tumeric Latte for a while, so I was happy to see this on the menu too! ( I have tried making them at home, but they don’t seem to work?! – if you have any tips comment below!)
I ordered the avocado smash with poached egg, feta & chilli flakes. Which I realised was a dupe of the Ezra & Gil classic, so I wanted to give it a try!
I have to say, it is easily the best your going to find in Bury town centre! I personally prefer fresh chilli’s, but this was delicious too.
My boyfriend ordered the beans, Parmesan & pesto on toast, which basically tasted like pizza on toast & it was delicious! This little café / coffee shop, is located in one of the older side of Bury, which means you get to enjoy modern food with beautiful views like this.
Bury is a town who’s high street is stuck in the 80’s and for years it’s only had chain restaurants or cafes. Finally it’s starting to get more artisanal spots for great food and drink. As a Bury girl through and through, I couldn’t be happier that it’s finally catching on! ..More of this please!
