    Benn in Manchester for only a couple hours but we tried this for lunch: fast service, good food (salmon) & cool environment.

    Three cheese toasted sandwich is indulgent, milkshakes and smoothies are yum and eggs are good. All round, enjoyed our (numerous) visits!

    A cool little bar with surprisingly good food. The black bean and sweetcorn side salad was lush! The special soup a bit rich for me.

    I have been here and like it next time I'm going out I'm going to go again. It's a busy vibrant buzzing bar with plenty of women. Yes I recommend it to another.

    Great place, the food was good. Took too long for them to prepare it. A bit too salty. I'd definitely come here again but at a less crowded time.
