Independent cafe and sourdough bakery Trove has announced the opening of their third site in Manchester.
Originally established in Levenshulme in 2011, Trove has become known for its artisan coffee, sourdough and other bakes.
The second site in Ancoats opened in 2018 and this summer, Trove will open its third cafe in Manchester, this time in the city centre.
Trove will take over the 1,000 sq ft ground floor space in the new Bloc development by Bruntwood Works. Also in the building will be a restaurant and bar by BrewDog and their new Doghouse Hotel, as well as FORM fitness, offering yoga and fitness training.
Launching in June, Trove will serve up a menu of nutritious breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes, with their freshly baked bread at the heart of the menu. There’ll also be pastries, cakes and organic raw cold pressed juices by One Zero Zero.
Marcus Saide, founder of Trove, said:
“The Bloc ethos fits perfectly with what Trove is all about – taking care of ourselves and investing in wellness. We’ll be serving up all our classic dishes including our freshly baked breads, pastries and our homemade pickles and chutneys, as well as some specially created new menu items for Bloc. As we approach our 10-year anniversary of Trove I can’t think of a better place to create our latest brunch destination.”
The transformation of Bloc is part of Bruntwood Works’ £50 million Pioneer programme which will see buildings across the North West, Midlands and Yorkshire reimagined into forward-thinking workspaces.
The building, which will open in May, will feature a sleep pod to help workers, technology to monitor and optimise air quality, a programme of yoga and fitness classes by FORM and a cascading garden in the foyer, with living walls throughout and on the building’s exterior.
Charlotte Wild, Head of Retail at Bruntwood Works said:
“We have long been fans of Trove’s approach to food and drink, and we’re absolutely delighted to be welcoming them to the Bloc community. It will create a fresh independent cafe destination for the city too with freshly baked bread and their incredible patisserie offering sitting alongside salads and juices – whether it’s treats or the healthiest of options everything is seasonal, sustainable and good for the soul. The ethos perfectly complements what we’re all about at Bloc too – bringing balance to business and ensuring our customers can take care of themselves.”
Trove will open on 1 June and will be open from Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.
