Central Perk Cafe

Primark in Manchester are bringing the magic and nostalgia of Central Perk Cafe to life for Friends fans everywhere. Step inside this fully themed cafe and enjoy a cup of coffee in the same seat as Joey, Ross or Rachel or relax on the famous orange sofa where Phoebe used the regularly belt out the ‘popular’ hit Smelly Cat.


The menu is well priced, as you’d expect being in a Primark store, with a good range or drinks and tasty snacks available:


Primark have said:

“This is the UK’s first Central Perk Café at Primark, located in our amazing Manchester store. The TV show, Friends taught us that the best memories are made over coffee with your pals, and now you have the perfect setting! You will have the chance to step inside our fully themed Central Perk Café where you’ll discover our New York inspired menu and also take a snap a pic on the sofa. So, pull up a chair, grab your friends, and take a sip of our ethically sourced coffee beans, which are also served in compostable cups as part of our Primark cares initiative! An amazing café, for our amazing Primark friends!”

It’s not clear how long the Central Park Cafe will be around for, so we would suggest you don’t hang around too long. We would guess it’s going to be incredibly popular due to the recent success of the Friends Reunion tv special.
