Fresh bread from artisan bakeries arrives daily at the deli, where you’ll also find an ever-expanding range of homemade salads, stews and baked delights developed by our cooks upstairs to take away.
Hot soups, salads & heat-to-eat meals
It was with great excitement that in early 2015 we moved into a brand new commercial kitchen above the shop, from where we now produce an enormous range of homemade produce. We are very proud of our salads, curries, and chillies, all made with our own lovely organic veg. We serve two varieties of hot soup daily, usually gluten free, always delicious.
Sweet treats & baked goods
Our sweet range includes flapjacks, cookies and truffles, which complement the wonderful cakes from the most talented Erikas (a former Unicorn member and her best friend!) at Manchester’s Black Cat Cakery. Alongside these, we offer a huge (some might say unnecessarily huge) range of olives and antipasti, pasties, calzones and sosmix rolls from Manchester-based Forest Foods and Saker Wholefoods in Yorkshire; pies and gammodoki (Japanese-style fried tofu balls) from Pauls in Leicestershire; and the North West’s best samosas, onion bhajis and other spicy snacks from Lily’s in Ashton-Under-Lyne.
Fantastic fresh bread comes courtesy of The Handmade Bakery – a community supported workers co-op in Slaithwaite, Yorkshire, and Trove – who are based a couple of miles away in Levenshulme. Both bakeries use organic flour and traditional methods to create exceptional artisan loaves. Bread is delivered every day except Sunday – Handmade Bakery can be found on Tuesdays, Thursday and Fridays and Trove on Wednesdays and Saturdays (both bakeries deliver late morning/lunchtime).
And don’t forget – bring your own containers to be filled at the deli and you get 15p off each time!
