Newly opened Roasted is a cafe worth a visit. Being in the parade on Silverdale Road (next to the High Grove pub) it may be one you won’t happen to pass by, but do take a detour!
Walking into the cafe, I was greeted not only by friendly staff but also a roaring log fire, shelves filled with books on the walls and a real home-from-home feeling. Whilst the High Grove stopped serving food at the beginning of last year, Roasted have got their old chef.
Although not the most obvious location for a cafe, Roasted’s owners hope to attract custom not only from the large Lakes estate, but also Cheadle Royal Business Park.
Gatley is also home to Coffee Fix, consistently rates as one of the best cafes in Greater Manchester and a favourite with cyclists. The Manchester Wire website recently named Coffee Fix as one of the top three GM coffee shops, saying “Let’s hope the residents of Gatley and Cheadle realise how fortunate they are to have a local café like Coffee Fix – on their doorstep.” Add in Armenique and others, and it seems the café culture is alive and well in Gatley.
