re­spected rep­u­ta­tion for their knock­out sour­dough loaves and the sim­ple, sea­sonal grub served up at the tiny Stock­port Road cafe they opened in 2011.

Tow­er­ing, triple height win­dows flood the white­washed space with light, and min­i­mal, Scandi styling and soft pink and grey fur­nish­ings cre­ate a serene at­mos­phere in­side.

An open kitchen stands to one side, con­nected to a cafe counter f i l l e d with cakes and pas­tries made fresh on site ev­ery day. Above it, a shelf is stacked with Trove’s award-win­ning loaves, from its best-sell­ing sour­dough to weekly spe­cials such as toasted oat and dark spelt.

House-made pro­duce in­clud­ing sea­sonal jams, pre­serves and gra­nola are also avail­able to buy, along with ce­ramic take­away cof­fee cups made by lo­cal ar­ti­san Lit­tle Torch.

A sea­sonal brunch and lunch menu will be served un­til 4pm, with dishes in­clud­ing French toast made from home­made crois­sant loaf, pear, creme fraiche and gra­nola (£6.50); hot smoked trout with potato, dill and ca­per salad (£8.50); and mer­guez sausages with fried egg, lab­neh, dukka, pick­led turnip and zhoug on toast (£8.75), as well as a chang­ing se­lec­tion of spe­cials, sweet and savoury pas­tries, sal­ads and soups.

In the evenings, the space will be open as a cafe bar, serv­ing keg beer from lo­cal brew­eries such as Black­jack along with wine on tap and a small bot­tle se­lec­tion.

Trove is in good com­pany in the area, across from the soon-to-open Mana and near to Sugo Pasta Kitchen and El­necot, while around the cor­ner, Cut­ting Room Square is home to Rudy’s Neapoli­tan Pizza, The Jane Eyre, Sec­ond City, Seven Broth­ers, Nam and newly-opened Canto. Nearby, New Is­ling­ton Ma­rina is also home to Pollen Bak­ery, where queues out of the door are a com­mon sight at the week­ends.

Any­one who’s ever tried to get a ta­ble for brunch at Trove’s Leven­shulme cafe will know queues are likely to fol­low them here too.

Trove An­coats will also soon be joined by sis­ter site Erst, next door but one, a new ‘laid back evening space and neigh­bour­hood eatery’ from the same team. The menu will re­volve around sim­ple, sea­sonal dishes mak­ing use of their sour­dough, pick­les and fer­ments, served along­side nat­u­ral and or­ganic wines and lo­cal craft beers.

Un­til then, Trove An­coats is open from 8am to 8pm, Mon­day to Fri­day; 9am to 8pm on Satur­days; and 10am to 5pm on Sun­days.
