Cosy Club Manchester Visit: October 2016
Sundays are synonymous with having a cosy snug duvet day, but I have found a home away from home where Sunday can be just as cosy – The Cosy Club Manchester. Part of the iconic corn exchange, the building dates back to 1903 and was home to city traders. Today, the venue is bustling with locals and tourists looking for a place to get cosy and enjoy some delicious delights.
The interiors are enviable! Consisting of mostly original pieces the place oozes quirky charm and character. A particular eclectic area caught my eye that showcased a crystal chandler, a stylish vintage side board decorated with bone china crockery and other unique wares, finally the centre piece was an old department store clock and apparently only 2 exist! Now, my only problem was working out how I was going to get these fab pieces back to my home without being detected. However, this would be no easy feat, as the staff at the Cosy Club felt just as much passion and love towards these cool individual statement pieces as me.
Our lovely lazy morning began with Amy, part of the management team, who warmly welcomed us and introduced us to Steph our server. Both worked well as a team hence polite, professional and personable service organically followed. Beginning with the crunchy flavoursome granola that was layered with a fresh summer fruit compôte, toasty banana slices and quality Greek yoghurt. One word Yumminess! Not forgetting the all-important coffee, opting for a skinny latte with a caramel shot, I was not disappointed. Made with Clifton coffee and beats my favourite brand by a long shot! My partner opted for the Cosy Club breakfast that consisted of grilled smoked back bacon, a quality Cumberland sausage, field mushroom, grilled tomato, black pudding, fried potatoes, baked beans, and toast. My choice was a tasty Vegetarian Breakfast served up with a grilled tomato, field mushroom, tomato & basil fritter, wood-roasted peppers, fried potatoes, baked beans and toast. Both scrummy options get served with a fried or poached egg or scrambled for a small supplement.
The characterful bar reclaimed from an old pub at Liverpool Lime street station called ‘The Head of steam’ certainly had not run out of steam with Dan at the helm. Dan’s delightful drinks offered something for everyone. An array of tea selections served in the signature cute Cosy Club branded cup and saucer. Or why not quench that thirst with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. No fakes here, Cosy Club say fresh they mean fresh, nothing artificial just authentic orangey goodness. The Watermelon Ice tea mocktail shaken up with ice cold tea, watermelon syrup and fresh lemon juice all topped off with soda, was refreshing lip-smacking hydration minus the alcohol. Finally, the mouth-watering mojito was mixed up with generous measures of Ron Barcelo rum, muddled limes, fresh crisp mint and crushed ice with a splash of soda creating a flawless finale.
Cosy club was a perfect breakfast venue, offering a relaxed atmosphere in quirky surroundings, delivering high quality food and drinks with genuine service. Getting cosy…easy! Only problem, I did not want to leave.
