James Carn, who runs multi-award winning restaurant, Lark, in Angel Hill, Bury, was asked for his opinion, and chose Folk Café

James said in the article: “On our day off, me and my wife Sophia and youngest son, Henry, head just out of town to Folk.

“It’s got a fantastic vibe, great interior and wonderful service and they serve the best coffee in the area.

“I usually order a flat white with a bacon, halloumi and Folk Chilli jam toastie”.

Folk Café was launched by Ali Barker in 2018.

It recently trebled in size following an extension project and now seats 150 instead of the previous 50.
