VEGETARIAN CAFEThere are as many tables outside Café Ark as inside, and when we visited, the double doors were open, letting in the low October sun. There was recycled art dangling from the ceiling, a singer-songwriter on the stereo, and books about allotment cooking on the window sills. Chorlton might be a four mile car journey away but it's very close by foot.
The food is vegetarian, homemade, and good. They attempt to use organic, locally grown, fair trade ingredients and the breads and cookies are baked in the café. There's none of those factory-made flapjacks with a use-by date of sometime after the apocalypse. This place would feel fresh and healthy even without the wide open doors.
