Sad news today that Atkinsons Coffee has closed their cafe in Manchester's Northern Quarter.
Atkinsons Coffee has announced it is closing its café at Mackie Mayor.
The Lancaster-based trader has been part of Mackie Mayor since its reopening as a food hall in 2017. The specialist coffee firm will continue trading in its home city of Lancaster.
In a post on Instagram confirming the news today (January 13), a spokesperson for Atkinsons Coffee said: "Today we bring you the sad news that we have made the tough decision to close our Manchester café at the Mackie Mayor. We would like to thank all our customers who have supported us over the years and amazing baristas who have all done us proud in what has been Atkinsons first venture outside of Lancaster in 180 years.
"In 2017 we opened at the Mackie as a test bed to showcase world class coffee on cutting edge equipment, from SP9s to Nitro. We’ve roasted our own on our restored 1919 Uno roaster and delved into the cocktail world with our coffee and tea cocktails.
"We’ve been lucky to be a part of the Manchester coffee community, hosting Aeropress Championship, Machines launches and latte art throw downs. Now, turning our attention to our Lancaster locations, this will be our last week trading at the Mackie.
For those of you who only know us in Manchester do come and visit us in Lancaster to see our amazing portfolio of cafés in iconic buildings and the fabulous heritage of the Shop and eco roastery you will receive a warm Lancastrian welcome."
So Knight Training (UK) Ltd as a Lancaster based business, wishes one of our local businesses all the best for the future and we’re sure that when the economy settles down once again that Atkinsons will be able to go from strength to strength.
