Set to be a beautiful, light space designed for you to sit and watch the world go by while eating great food and drinking delicious coffee. Floor to ceiling windows and the on-site baking of Trove’s signature sourdoughs and pastries will create beautiful 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.

“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!”.

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. Quality coffee from Allpress will play a massive 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.

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

Trove will open from 8 am to 7 pm and will be offering a more extensive 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.
