“"The Prestwich Memorial was brought to life with the launch of David Donde’s new coffee spot, Truth.coffeecult. Coffee lovers swarmed to get their slice of the new offering, which proved to be nothing short of amazing. The coffee is as good as it gets. The intention is to keep things simple and uncomplicated by providing a smaller selection of blends. Choose between the Resurrection Blend, Vengeance Blend, Antithesis Blend, Donde’s Chaos or Organic. Each named with the intention of striking a nerve. Don’t be shy to try the Vengeance blend; it’s not necessary that you share the real reason behind your choice."”

“Bootlegger is certainly serious about coffee, but the food offering holds its own, too. Breakfasts are made with free-range eggs and artisan bread and lunches and dinners comprise well-executed burgers, open and hot-pressed sandwiches, and inventive salads. Dark grey walls, golden light fittings and vintage type, make this popular with freelancers and Macbook owners.”
