Refuel at Fuel - this vegetarian café bar in Withington is as famous for its 'quiz and chips' nights (free chips for every team) as it is for its cheap and tasty food! Set over two storeys, it’s beloved by left-leaning students, but has also found favour with young professionals who enjoy the speciality beers (think local ales, traditional imported German beers and a large selection of regularly-changing seasonal brews) and sporadic live music events (usually folk/acoustic, free entry).

You get families in there too - although it’s in the suburbs, it would sit quite happily in the Northern Quarter with its boho-chic ambience, mismatched furniture and comfy sofas. It’s a proper chillaxing hangout and a real embodiment of Manchester’s independent café scene, complete with free WiFi, newspapers and a grand selection of well-used board games. Nowhere is this independence more obvious than in the food offering (no main dishes are over £6); inventive meat-free meals, sumptuous sweets and utterly brilliant smoothies and shakes (the Malteaser Milkshake is to die for)! It may be small, but Fuel punches well above its weight.

A word from the chef:
Tasty, creative pub food done vegetarian-style (the 'fish' and chips are made with breadcrumbed haloumi) and the desserts are absolutely divine,
