A café claiming to be Manchester’s first ‘free-from’ food offering – with food catering for vegetarians, vegans, coeliacs, and allergy sufferers – is set to open in the Royal Exchange.
3Squared Café will open in the 1,300 sq ft unit 19 at the Royal Exchange Arcade next month, and has been devised by Squared Ventures, the group also behind a 12,000 sq ft basement gym at the Royal Exchange due to open in the former Brannigan’s nightclub early next year.
The café, headed up by Katie McIntosh, will offer food free of wheat, gluten, dairy, and refined sugar, as well as offering plant-based protein shakes.
The café joins other recent additions to the Royal Exchange, which is owned by Hines: footwear brand Irregular Choice which will open on the Market Street side, and apparel brand Lululemon which is opening on St Ann’s Square.
Hines purchased the building in November 2016, and Colliers and Metis are the retail agents.
