Welcome to our website.

This version of Folk & Soul is now closed.
We thank all the amazing people that helped us along the way and we've learnt so much in the time we've been open. It's been a hard year but we've had lots of fun and met some fantastic people from dedicated producers to you, our fantastic customers.
We are looking to be back up and running again in 2020 with new premises and in the mean time we'll be sourcing the best produce and drinks to present to you.

For the future we are looking to work with dedicated plant based chefs and are seeking investment for the new ventures.
If you are interested in becoming part of the future Folk & Soul team or seeking to invest in an ethical plant based contemporary cafe bar please contact us at

Folk & Soul; a plant-based cafe bar was located at the heart of the artistic centre of Manchester’s Northern Quarter in a wonderful characterful building that we renovated to make you feel right at home. We sourced a huge range of fantastic vegan beers and wines for and coupled with our hearty, healthy, indulgent and constantly changing menu, we had a great journey through 2018/2019

Plant Based Cafe Bar bringing you the best in vegan wines, beers, coffees, teas and of course food.

Folk & Soul is a part of the plant-based food movement, celebrating the flavours of locally-sourced, seasonal produce. Our chefs have created a wide-ranging variety of vegan dishes for you to enjoy. Healthy, but also super tasty and indulgent.
