Foundation Coffee House
Sevendale House, Lever St, Manchester M1 1JB, UK
Foundation Coffee House is an impressive venue, spacious and bright, buzzing with atmosphere and serving up excellent coffee from Origin, who roast a house blend for them. As well as espresso-based drinks, there's filter from V60, Aeropress, and Chemex, as well as a batch brew. The space is huge, with table seating and window bays, making it a great spot to meet friends or crack on with some work. White brick walls, a liberal smattering of potted plants, and some lovely design work on the signage and windows give Foundation a modern, stylish vibe.
The venue also serves an excellent brunch and lunch menu, with sufficiently filling options to keep you going. In the evenings, there's more a bar vibe, and they swear by their espresso martinis (disclaimer – this reviewer did not partake). There's a decent retail selection offering coffee-themed products, rather than kit, but you can buy the house blend to take with you. There is disabled access to the side of the venue, clearly sign-posted at the front.
