About Social 7

Relaxed dining in Salford Quays

Social 7 is right in the heart of MediaCityUK, on the 7th Floor of Blue Tower. Serving food that is ‘as local as you can get’, the restaurant’s aim is to make every part of your meal work hard to feed money back into local businesses. From Monday to Friday, breakfast and lunch is served in an airy, contemporary space of neutral colours, comfy sofas and leather chairs. Social 7 is a great spot to either kickstart your day with a hearty breakfast or to enjoy a lunchtime treat with colleagues.

Breakfasts, burgers and sandwiches

When Social 7 says that it serves local produce, it really does mean local. For instance, all meat is from WH Frost in Chorlton and Grandad’s Sausages in Bury, and breads are baked daily by Thatcher’s in Stockport and Trove in Levenshulme.

Menus can change regularly, but expect breakfast choices like the Social 7 porridge, the full English and the veggie English. Breakfast specials include Penelope’s pancakes, topped with lashings of maple syrup, mixed berries, fresh yoghurt and icing sugar.

For lunch, choose between a range of sandwiches, burgers, salads and a soup of the day. These might include the Meatball melt sandwich, which is free range 100% beef meatballs served on toasted brioche with mozzarella, fresh pesto and marinara sauce. Non-carnivores can tuck into the When Veggie Met Sally sandwich of grilled halloumi, juicy portabello mushroom, gem lettuce, sliced beef tomato, burger sauce, butter onions & sliced pickle.

Burgers include the Kevin Bacon, a juicy frosty beef burger patty with butter onions, double American cheese and double bacon, topped with a house pickle.
