Trove Café & Bakery Finally Come To The City

Manchester’s ‘Best Coffee Shop 2017’ confirm the opening of their second site in Ancoats, Manchester by Summer 2018

Trove, renowned for its handmade Sourdough, pastries and mouth-watering brunch offerings will be opening a new site at Manchester Life’s Sawmill Court residential development in Ancoats, directly opposite Halle St Peters.

It is set to be a beautiful, light space to sit and watch the world go by whilst eating great food and drinking delicious coffee. Floor to ceiling windows and the on-site baking of Troves signature sourdoughs and pastries will create wonderful smells and sounds that add to the experience.

In the Summer, customers will be able to sit outside and enjoy the chilled surroundings of the growing and independent Ancoats community.

Select craft beers on tap and natural wines will complement the wild yeasts used to cultivate the sourdough loaves.

Simple and seasonal food is Trove’s focus, delivered through a gorgeously created menu. Everything is made by hand and in house, with locally sourced and organic (where possible) ingredients.

Trove’s food has nothing to hide. No additives are used in the making of any of their products, from their tomato ketchup to bagels.

Specialising in sourdough bread, Trove use traditional methods of baking with each loaf reflecting its maker. Most importantly, Trove use a long fermentation process which improves nutritional value and prevents digestion problems associated with the Chorleywood process.

Quality coffee from Allpress will play a huge part in the menu, from flat whites to a V60, alongside a selection of seasonal house-made drinks such as sea salt hot chocolate, hot ginger and sparkling fruit cordials.

Trove will open from 8am to 7pm and will be offering a larger selection of takeaway items so customers can grab an early morning coffee or pastry on the way to work, and sweets and savouries on the way home.

“Since opening our Levenshulme site back in 2011, we have taken our time to mature as a team. That team effort resulted in winning Best Coffee Shop 2017 at Manchester Food and Drink Festival, we feel now that we are ready for this next challenge.

To be in Ancoats amongst Rudy’s Pizza, Sugo Pasta Kitchen and the Jane Eyre, bringing our brunch, Sourdough and coffee to the community of Ancoats is really exciting!”.


“Trove is an amazing business that has grown from a market stall in 2011 to become one of Manchester’s most loved bakeries and cafés.

“We are honoured that Trove has chosen to make Ancoats and Sawmill Court their city centre home, they are a fantastic home-grown addition to the Ancoats food and drink scene.”

Marty Edelman, Executive Chairman of Manchester Life Development Company

About Trove

We are TROVE – once a husband and wife team, now a collection of talented artisans making food from scratch, by hand, with a central focus on organic ingredients and locally sourced produce.

It all began in 2011 – after many a Saturday spent huddled on market stalls selling our handmade, organic chutneys and jams in the wet and windy weather of our beloved Manchester, we found a tiny space with a big heart and a big kitchen and TROVE was born.

With the help of some amazing family members and lovely friends we created a little haven of great food and friendly service.
