“Your satisfaction is our obsession!” Or says the sign outside this cosy little café-bar.

Café Rosso is on Wigan Lane, full of personality and warmly decorated. As well as serving hot drinks, there is also a very generous breakfast menu available.

The staff is also extremely friendly and will be happy to lend a hand if assistance is needed. Find it on Wigan Lane between Mab’s Cross Primary School and the turnoff for Douglas Road.

The Uptown Diner

Another place to stop in at the Makinson Arcade, this café makes a great place to grab some food either before or part way into any trip to downtown Wigan.

A good old fashioned British café, the Uptown Diner specialises in serving hearty and reasonably priced meals. The menu includes items such as full English breakfasts, bacon butties, toast, and hot drinks.

A hidden Wigan gem, once again located on the Makinson Arcade. The Santos Café is independently owned by a local family, offering good prices and generous portions.

The café is well known for its friendly and attentive staff, which work quickly to make all their visitors feel welcome. The food is made fresh to order, with a particular emphasis on quality as well as quantity. It has quickly become hugely popular with the rest of the town.

The Mount

A large pub on Orrell Road just a short drive out of town, the Mount serves breakfast every morning from 8am to 12pm. One of its signature dishes is the “Breakfast in Bread”, which is basically a full English breakfast served within a hollowed-out loaf of bread. If you ever fancy a unique twist on their breakfast, then this is the place to try it.

As well as providing excellent hot breakfasts and drinks, the Mount also provides excellent service and a friendly welcome for all its guests. There is plenty of seating at its restaurant, by the bar or in the beer garden, all of which is fully accessible.

The Mount is best suited as a destination in itself due to its distance from Wigan proper, or else as a place to stop for food for a journey out of town. Whatever brings you there, it’s well worth the visit. Find it on Orrell Road near the bridge over the M6.
