Pocket Number-16: Lupo Caffè Italiano, Chapel Street

WP_20160625_13_30_32_ProLupo Caffè is an independent Italian cafe and restaurant, a stone’s throw away from the central train station in the Salford area of Manchester.

Inside, behind the building’s tiled facade, I met Nico who hails from Rome (hence the Caffè’s name of “Lupo” – the wolf who raised Romulus).

WP_20160625_13_22_27_ProNico advised me of Lupo’s specials for the day: Sicilian stuffed peppers and cream and courgette pasta with walnuts.

I’d just eaten and wasn’t yet hungry and so I had an espresso and Nico made one that was balanced and viscous and well extracted.

I complimented him on the taste and he pointed out that Lupo Caffè had won coffee bar of the year at the 2015 Manchester food and drink awards.

After I explained about 25 Pockets of Manchester, Nico gave the assemblage a Lupo flyer and sent me to have a grilled cheese sandwich and meet with Dan at Northern Soul.

Nico told me that he’s in competition against Dan for the title of “2016 best cheap eats award” in Manchester.
