Our ethos here at Vivid is simple – to provide you with a warm welcome and the best food possible.
Whether you are looking for a full English breakfast, a tasty soup and sandwich, or a fantastic Thai meal, our menu will not disappoint.
Our Master Butcher J.W.Mettricks supplies us with all the meat on our menu. It’s locally sourced, environmentally sensitive, produced to the highest-welfare standards and matured traditionally, resulting in tender succulent meat with unbeatable flavour.
On the drinks list meanwhile, we offer a number of local beers and organic wines, with coffees and teas to help you start your day, or relax mid-afternoon with one of our delicious home-made cakes.
In the kitchen, we boast the best chefs around. Our Thai food is authentic, from the heart and gets a resounding thumbs up from everyone.
Voted one of the 12 best sandwich shops in Manchester by the Manchester Evening News, featured in The Guardian and hailed as one of the top hidden gems in the city by food bloggers, we have a loyal and growing customer base.

Walk a little outside the city centre and you’ll be rewarded with authentic Thai food, an invigorating atmosphere and top service – all at reasonable prices.
Vivid Lounge has.. the ambience of those chilled unique little places that you stumble across by accident. The places that surprise and enchant.
The fish cakes were delightful, the sweet chilli sauce was incredible, the best I’ve had possibly ever. The massaman is what will keep me coming back here time and time again.
I genuinely am overjoyed to have discovered this little Ancoats gem, and will be recommending it to everyone coming to Manchester who is looking for breakfasts, coffee and cakes, and of course, Thai food. Ten out of ten!
Vivid Lounge is a lovely hidden place, and its welcome, its happy atmosphere and the great food, make it a great place to settle for hours at a time. Take a short walk away from the city centre. You might find something a little different.
Exceptional food at a good price.
Vivid Lounge, you do a great job fuelling us through our volunteer days by providing tasty lunches!
So lucky to have lush cafe Vivid as our local.
Pork satay skewers and Thai salad simply amazing. Great value too. Thanks.
I have just eaten the best Thai food I have ever had in Manchester at Vivid Lounge.
I couldn’t function in the morning, without my daily Hazelnut Latte =).
The most authentic beef massaman curry – Thai heaven!
