My Favourite Café

A tad quirky maybe, but my favourite café is located on Platform 3 of Stalybridge Station. It’s called “The Coffee Shop” and it’s been run for the last 8 years by a lovely, friendly and welcoming couple, Janet and Steve.

It’s open 06:00 to 14:00 Monday to Friday. Contact number if you want to pre-order when arriving by train is 07545 906858. All part of the service!!

There isn’t extensive haute cuisine, but the hot snacks are awesome. My staple diet when visiting is Americano coffee and a toasted teacake, per request heavily enriched with the yellow stuff!

All prices are very reasonable (see menu). There’s also a wide range of drinks and confectionery on offer. Side benefits of its platform location are good hill views, a steady stream of passing trains and the British joy of observing all the strands of your fellow mankind!!

In summary, I just love the place and give it a top rating.
