Blanchflower, 12-14 Shaw's Road, Altrincham, WA14 1QU – Visit Now

You’ll find Blanchflower at the heart of Altrincham’s Stamford Quarter. This locally-adored bakery is known for its attention to detail, combining simplicity with ideas and technique that takes years, if not decades, to master.

No unnecessary additives, just honest, hearty food that keeps their loyal customers coming back time and time again

They pride themselves creating products with an ingredients list you can count on one hand – that means no unnecessary additives, just honest, hearty food that keeps their loyal customers coming back time and time again.

As well as delicious baked goods, they have a small but perfectly formed menu that covers both brunch and lunch, as well as high-quality coffee roasted by Origin in Cornwall and Berlin’s Five Elephant. There’s even a carefully curated alcoholic drinks menu, headed up with plenty of European wines if you’re in the mood for a daytime tipple.

When it comes to daytime dining in Altrincham, whether you fancy a baked good to take away (the doughnuts come highly recommended) or a sit-down meal with a friend, Blanchflower never disappoints

The breakfasts on offer are the ideal way to kickstart your day, whether you opt for the English breakfast or crushed avocado and free-range poached eggs on sourdough toast. Lunch offers up a range of season sandwiches, warm salads and mouthwatering plates such as the pie of the day, or the gloriously autumnal braised salt beef in broth with horseradish dumplings, baby carrots, kale and sourdough bread.

The plates are pretty as a picture, a riot of colour and texture that taste just as good as they look and seasonal all the way. When it comes to daytime dining in Altrincham, whether you fancy a baked good to take away (the doughnuts come highly recommended) or a sit-down meal with a friend, Blanchflower never disappoints.
