Cocoa & Bloom - Chocolate and Coffee House
We are very excited to announce the opening of our new cafe at Manchester Craft and Design Centre.
Darcy has a successful chocolate-making business, making tiny works of art with delicious centres perfect for gifts or a special treat. Her and her team have now come together to bring her eye to detail to the delicious menu at their new chocolate and coffee house.
This business fits brilliantly with our values of small business and sustainability, they are community-minded and make delicious food and there’s always a great selection of vegan and vegetarian options.
20% off chocolate refills, if you bring back your tin.
Please note: As of 15th March 2022, the cafe will only be open on Saturdays 10am – 5pm.
We welcome dogs of all shape and size in the Centre.
Unfortunately some of our maker’s work is fragile, so we have a simple green and red sticker for studios. If you see a red sticker on a maker’s door, please do not let your dog into the studio.
Our makers are a friendly bunch, so if you aren’t sure please ask!
Visit, experience and explore with a group visit to MCDC
If you’re a school, college or group, you’ll find Manchester Craft & Design Centre an inspiring destination to learn about Craft and the history of the Northern Quarter. Your group can see a wide variety of craftspeople and designers at work in their combined studio and retail spaces.
A visit to the Centre is ideal for students studying at GCSE level upwards, as well as adult specialist interest groups.
So, whether you’re at a local college or University, part of a U3A or WI group, or just a group of friends who’d like to find out more – we’d love to welcome you to MCDC.
We’re very happy to work with you to create a bespoke package for your group’s needs. Below are some packages we offer for groups.

We are committed to improving access for our customers and we aim to ensure that all customers with access requirements have an enjoyable experience.
Unfortunately, our two-storey Victorian building currently has no lift, making first floor access difficult for visitors with mobility restrictions. We are committed to improve access in the future by raising funds to refurbish the building, making it fully accessible to everyone.
Our management team and resident makers are happy to assist your visit by bringing products downstairs, audio-description, or helping carry buggies or prams upstairs.
Both our entrances are step free. On the ground floor we have an accessible toilet with baby change facilities. Disabled parking bays for Blue Badge holders are available on Copperas Street and we welcome guide dogs and hearing dogs. Large print interpretation texts for our exhibitions are available on request.
Please contact the management office on 0161 832 4274 or email [email protected] to discuss your requirements.
