Home Sweet Home

This much-loved venue’s cheeseburger toastie is the stuff of Manchester legend. If you’ve space, wash it down with a boozy shake

Located in Manchester's creative core, the Northern Quarter, Home Sweet Home is decked out in the familiar quaint wooden furniture and lovely bric-a-brac that so defines neighbourly establishments. The staff are so painfully friendly that you’ll want to pull up a chair as an invitation. It's more spacious than it looks and there's the occasional wait, but after a hot cuppa (coffees and herbal teas, £2-3) you'll be whisked off to a table.

Choosing what to eat is tough, with the menu covering breakfasts, burgers, salads, platters and Tex-Mex concoctions. The house speciality is the cheeseburger toastie, which is fantastic, while the ‘pulled pork pile-up’ is a happy marriage of tender meat and brioche bun. Breakfasters with a flicker of adventure can opt for the waffle-fried chicken, which comes equipped with bacon and maple syrup.

Booze includes Brooklyn lager and Sierra Nevada, but if you're going to guzzle anything, make it a shake. The peanut butter malt is especially worth feeling uncomfortably full afterwards. The desserts on offer are spectacular in presentation, often enlisting the help of local cake artists.

These guys have it all; variety, quality, service and go-backability. We dare you to not return within a week.

Home Sweet Home is definitely worthy of its name. Everything about the place feels homely, from the cosy decor to the delicious dishes on the menu. Perfect comfort food, whether you want a hangover busting brunch, a hearty dinner or something to satisfy your sweet tooth. The steak and eggs house hash is the perfect dish to follow a big night on the town and the cheeseburger toastie is just as decadent as you'd imagine.

My only experience of Home Sweet Home has only been brunch on a Saturday (we turned up at around 11am and had no problem getting a table for two) but I will definitely be going back for dinner. A varied and reasonably priced menu with beautiful tiffany lamps and cosy decor, Home Sweet Home is a relaxed restaurant that fits right in the Northern Quarter, offering something different to it's sometimes over the top and overpriced neighbours.

I had the Banana pancake which was absolutely out of this world, it was a huge fluffy goodness and the cinnamon butter was unlike anything I've ever tasted before. There's no doubt I'll be going back again for this exact pancake, this time a little hungrier as I felt genuinely disappointed in myself that I couldn't finish the doughy goodness.
