Takk

Whether you appreciate the cultural touchpoints or not, this Icelandic-style coffee house does a fine job with both brews and snacks


‘Icelandic coffee house’ may be a fairly narrow niche, but Takk (‘thanks’) has plenty of fun with it.

The inside is characterised by exposed brickwork, graffiti-marked school desks and a very, very strong smell of coffee. Beans are sourced from a myriad of places, with roasters The Barn Berlin featuring heavily on the roster. There are specialist mixes, too, like salted caramel espresso, which is less bitter than most and sports a silky smooth finish.

The sandwiches are great, with bread provided by Chorlton bakers Barbakan, while salads and soups are similarly strong. The espresso brownie is a favourite and is hand-baked Silver Needles of Didsbury.
