This delicatessen in the centre of Manchester is ideal for a quick breakfast or lunch.

Katsouris was where I dashed for my sandwiches when I worked on Deansgate and I now head there if I am in the city centre and don’t want a sit-down meal for lunch. The deli is in a grand old building on the corners of Deansgate and John Dalton Street and is a great alternative to all of the chain coffee shop options nearby.

Food and drink

There are numerous tempting hot and cold lunch options ranging from a carvery to a help-yourself salad bar. Depending on how hungry you are feeling, you can choose between whole or half ciabattas stuffed with fillings of your choice.

Recommended dishes

A good salad bar is a rare treat and Katsouris’ is great. I always end up precariously balancing dolamades on top of a pile of Greek salad in the attempt to fit as much as possible on my plate. On a cold winter’s day, the made-to-order hot ciabattas come highly recommended – especially Zorba the Greek (halloumi with tomatoes, asparagus and tapenade; £2.70 for half a ciabatta).

Ambience

Despite occupying a large, high-ceilinged building, the deli is crammed with local office workers during the week so avoid peak times if you would like a more relaxing meal.

Service

As this is a deli not a restaurant, you need to queue up to place your order. The service tends to be quick and efficient but don’t forget to listen out for your number being called.

Location

Katsouris is in the centre of Manchester on Deansgate just a hop, skip and a jump from the main shopping areas.

Price advice

The all-day breakfast options range from £1.50-£4.95. Hot ciabattas are, on average, £2.70 for half, £5 for whole.
