My name is Lauren and I own Nibble. My days are a mix of working at the cafe, baking our cakes, and doing all the behind the scenes stuff. I have a gorgeous team of hard working and hilarious women who work alongside me to make our Oldham Street cafe, the welcoming, inclusive space that it is today.
I started the cafe in 2017 with nothing but a passion for true hospitality and a hardcore work ethic. I’d always wanted a cafe of my own, but I had no money and no claim to fame for instant success. I did everything myself, because I had to, and I learnt, and made mistakes along the way. What you see now was built through blood, sweat, tears and a whole lot of love.
You can read more about our humble beginnings here.
Hospitality can be a really high pressure, male dominated industry, so I wanted to build my own female friendly space, where we were all listened to, where we all enjoyed working and where we could have a good laugh along the way. It’s not easy work, but we have a great time, and I love being surrounded by a team of super women who have become great friends.
You can find us at our Manchester city centre cafe, you can order our cakes online with UK delivery, and you can shop our GIRLS CAN merch line too.
All done in-house
We don’t have separate chefs, kitchen porters or marketing executives, we do everything ourselves and there’s a lot of multitasking. None of us are trained chefs, we’ve all learnt on the job, brought our own twist to things, and we really believe that GIRLS CAN DO ANYTHING!
See you soon, we’ll get the coffee on…
