I was asked if I’d like to add a foodie hidden gem to a map of Manchester recently, for hotel visitors staying at Millenium Hotels.
As you can see, there are some crackers on there, including quite a few I have been meaning to go to myself for a while (hello, Portico Library) so it has spurred me on to spread my culinary wings a bit more too.
My choice of Manchester’s hidden gems was a café. In a library. It might not sound much, but the John Dalton library is a stunning gothic building hidden in plain sight on busy Deansgate. Next time you’re shopping call in and have a look round – it is free to get in and you won’t regret it. Café Ryland’s is on the ground floor in a bright modern extension.
Let me know if you’ve been to Rylands, or if you’ve another hidden gem not shown on the map which I need to check out!
