Café chain Patisserie Valerie has opened in Bruntwood's St James' building on Oxford Street in Manchester.
The 488 sq ft unit offers Patisserie Valerie's range of hand-made cakes, patisseries, sandwiches and drinks, and includes a seating area created through the installation of a mezzanine floor.
Patisserie Valerie joined Pizza Express, Caffè Nero, First Taste, New York Deli and Changos on the ground floor of the grade-2 listed block. Together with the retail brands, which include Tesco and Venus Flowers, St James' is now fully let according to Bruntwood.
Paul May, chief executive of Patisserie Valerie, said: "Bruntwood's St James' building has the character we seek and is right at the heart of an area with a very strong customer base from morning through to evening. This is the perfect location for Patisserie Valerie and we are very pleased with the customer response so far."
Patisserie Valerie also operates units in Deansgate and in the Trafford Centre.
