  2. Painters removed “old floral wallpaper” in Blake’s former restaurant in Manchester’s North End where Alexandra Horton was “dreaming of what the place would look like for her second café”. Horton said she was sad to see Blakes soon after 40 years of serving comfort food and ice cream. “I brought my friends here for ice cream,” Horton recalls. It has tender plans to reopen the restaurant as the second location for Café La Reine in Manchester. (Subscribe / The Union Leader)
