Eastern Bloc


Matt's office and my office are back to back in the Northern Quarter. V Revolution is equidistant in one direction and  Eastern Bloc is equidistant in the other. Eastern Bloc is a record shop established in the mid eighties that's played a big part in Manchester's music scene. It's moved around several venues and it's current incarnation in Stevenson Square it also has a great little cafe.


There's always a friendly, relaxed feel with their home made food and mismatched furniture. Vegan options change daily but you can usually find a soup or salad. Sweet wise there'll be cake or one of their amazing seed topped muffins. Seriously, these are some of the best muffins I've bought and muffins are one of my things baking wise. Everything is available to eat in or take out. Their soya latte is also my favourite in Manchester. The coffee is Union Hand Roasted and both the caff and decaff versions are delicious and check out their cute loyalty card where you get the records stamped. It has the added bonus that you only have to buy six drinks to claim a free one where it's pretty standard elsewhere that you have to buy nine.

  3. I must just add, always check that the muffins are the vegan version. Sometimes they have a non vegan version of the seeded topped one too.

  7. I'm so jelly of you being able to go to a cafe and get vegan options! It's pretty rare here, and I really want a seed-topped muffin!

  8. At the end of the month can you do a map showing all the vegan eateries in the Northern quarter, then I can plan my visit by food! :)

  9. Haha, I was just thinking the same thing Jasmine. A map would be good. Not sure if my skills are up to it but Matt has a Geography degree so I might try and get him on it ;)
