Liverpool’s award-winning coffee shop Bold Street Coffee has opened a site in Manchester on Cross Street, bringing its delicious donuts, breakfast buoys and chicken katsu curry butties with it.
Taking over a former Cafe Nero site on Cross street, the independent coffee shop and cafe is serving up top-quality brews alongside all-day breakfast, lunch and brunch dishes – ranging from full on fry ups to butties, an ‘on toast’ section, wholesome bowls and more.
Make no mistake, though, the special dish here has to be the buoys – a Bold Street Coffee signature comprised of scrambled egg with melted cheese inside a lightly toasted brioche bun.
Essentially a breakfast burger, they’re priced from £5.95 for the most basice edition. You can then add in sausage patties, hash browns, bacon, avocado, mushroom, scrambled tofu, aubergine patties and more from a list of different variations, depending on what sort of mood you’re in.
There are vegan buoys, veggie buoys, and even a bad bouy (brioche bun, sausage patty, fried egg, cheese, avocado and hollondaise) if you’re feeling naughty.
Elsewhere, you’ll find porridge, ‘super’ porridge, ‘Gaz’s granola’, vegan and veggie-friendly sandwiches, an ‘egg box’ section stufffed with the likes of granary toast, scrambled egg, melted cheese, avocado, tomato, bacon and sausages.
Whilst the food menu does sound spectacular, let’s not forget that Bold Street is known for its coffee – serving regularly-changing guest espressos and a house blend that they switch up every quarter.
Hand-picked by baristas and roasted specifically for BSC, alongside a selection of sixteen different coffees on the menu you can also purchase everything you need to make your perfect brew at home – from aeropress, Chemex and V60s, to filters and pour-over kettles.
The only thing they don’t seem to sell (from the looks of things anyway) is a grinder and scale – however, you can ask one of the team to grind your beans to your own specifications when you pick up a bag (priced from £8).
If you’re not a coffee fan, don’t worry, there’s still lots to drink. Think seven different types of tea, plus iced tea, kombucha (fermented tea), Lemon-Aid, Fritz sodas and Pago juices.
There are even puppucinos and babbacinos available for your dogs and babies, so no one needs to feel left out at Bold Street Coffee.
Open from Monday to Saturday 8am – 6pm, and Sunday from 9am – 5pm, find Bold Street Coffee at 53 Cross Street.
