 4. Penelope’s Kitchen

After living in New York and tasting all the city had to offer, Miss P decided to open up her very own NYC inspired cafe in her hometown of Manchester. Penelope’s Kitchen provides MediaCityUK’s occupants with locally sourced and freshly prepared dishes. Not only can you pop into the cafe for breakfast or lunch, you can also use it for corporate catering or rent their ice cream trike to sweeten up your next event.

5. The Botanist

It started with a seed, an idea to create a secret garden of food and drink. The Botanist features a large outside terrace with incredible views of Salford Quays and offers delicious favourites from the deli, rotisserie and grill. Visit after work to taste their world-famous selection of botanical cocktails whilst enjoying some live music.
