One of the advantages of the teen being back from Uni for a week, is being able to visit a few nice places for lunch. She enjoys a good cafe as much as I do and it's a lot more fun than eating alone. The Fig and Sparrow in Manchester's Northern Quarter is a super little eatery which also sells an eclectic selection of homewares. We had the spinach and feta parcels with salad, which were delicious and an ideal portion size. Some places do enormous portions and I much prefer smaller sizes so room is left for cake. Saying that, we didn't have cake today...again. Being good is almost killing me!
