Sadly, The Greenhouse closed on 2nd August for evaluation and the decision to cease trading
was made on the 20th August. The keys have been handed back to the landlord and there are no

EXCLUSIVELY VEGGIE DAYTIME EATERIES IN CENTRAL MANCHESTER
In Manchester's Northern Quarter, Earth Café, located down a flight of steps
in the basement below the Buddhist Centre at 16/20 Turner Street, Manchester M4 1DZ
re-opened Summer 2010 with a revised format. There is a lift from the Buddhist Centre down
to the basement but as there are still steps to negiotate from street level to ground floor,
disabled access is difficult. Opening hours: Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays
11am - 4pm; Tuesdays and Fridays 11am - 8pm; Saturdays and Sundays
10am - 5pm. In addition to serving it's excellent range of vegan food the café will be
used as a venue for a wide range of events. I've added Earth Café to my regular
weekly visit list.
