Manchester Jewish Museum Café
Our new café serves a contemporary vegetarian kosher-style menu using local produce and authentic Jewish and vegetarian ingredients. Our menu is designed to be a discovery of traditional meets innovative, providing a flavour of Jewish heritage. It is based on three principles of Jewish food: evolving recipes, meals to nourish and sustain you, and bringing people together.
We use kosher ingredients but the food is not prepared under on-site Beth Din supervision. All our food is suitable for vegetarians and there will also be a range of kosher pre-packaged snacks available.
Our café is an invitation to our visitors to take a moment to gather round a table, reflect on their visit and to connect with one another.
Our café offers the following menu, inspired by Ashkenazi and Sephardi style recipes (the latter giving a nod to the Spanish and Portuguese roots of the our Grade II* listed synagogue).
- Lentil soup with spinach & drizzle of zesty lemon oil served with pita.
- Vegetarian cholent served with challah bread.
- It’s not a salmon and cream cheese bagel (vegan cream cheese, carrot lox and beef tomato)
- Falafel plate or pita, served with homemade hummus.
Manchester Jewish Museum is open seven days. Our café is open from 10am – 4pm daily, serving hot food from 11.30am – 2.30pm. The café will be open later when the museum hosts late events including its Thursday Lates programme later this year.
