Long Boi's Bakehouse: independent food producer of the year

Long Boi's famous pop tarts always prove a hit

Since opening in 2020, our little, local bakery has gone from strength to strength, feeding Levenshulme locals as well as supplying a few different indies around Manchester. As a result, they've deservedly picked up their nomination for the best independent food producer of the year.

Station South: best coffee shop of the year

Station South sits right along the Fallowfield Loop, perfect for a coffee pit-stop

One of Levenshulme's newest (but long-time-coming) additions is Station South. And they've landed themselves a nomination in the best-coffee-category. I mean, we've had it. And we agree. So feel free to take our word for it and cast a vote their way.

Aunty Ji's and Levenshulme Bakery: affordable eats venue of the year

Levenshulme Bakery and Aunty Ji's are both up for the budget-friendly category

Two Levenshulme eateries and have successfully made their way into the best-bang-for-your-buck category: Aunty Ji's and Levenshulme Bakery.

While they're both great value eats. It feels a little unfair to ignore the fact that they're both serving up top notch food in their own right.

Heart & Parcel: pop up or project of the year

Heart & Parcel: food, language and community

After another year of helping people's English language skills through the power of food and creative cookalongs, Heart & Parcel have rightfully picked up a nomination in the pop up or project of the year category. And they've certainly got our vote.

Nordie and Station Hop: pub or bar of the year

Nordie and Station Hop duke it out in the best pub category

It does seem kind of fitting - given the thriving bar scene in Levenshulme - that one of the toughest choices to make is in the pub or bar of the year category...

Both Station Hop and Nordie have got the nod. And we absolutely love both - so there's no way we could pick a favourite. But a vote for either is a vote for Levenshulme. And a team one-two is still on the cards. So go with your beer gut.

How to cast your vote

So that's that. No less than seven nominations for Levenshulme independents in this year's MFDF awards! That's pretty good going. And with your help, we can make sure that they walk away with the awards and recognition they so deserve.
