Manchester’s food scene is acing it at the moment. There are top-of-their-class restaurants, uber-cool coffee shops and wholesome cheap eats. But if there’s one thing Manchester does really well, it’s brunch. From OTT pancake stacks to tender steak and eggs, antipodean eggs benedict to a traditional English fry-up, Cottonopolis has more eggs than the Easter Bunny.
But where the heck do you start? The Northern Quarter is a good neighbourhood if you’re part of the brunch crowd. This trendy part of the centre is home to an array of great cafés and restaurants (against a photogenic backdrop of eye-popping graffiti and indie record shops). Ancoats is the next up-and-coming area to visit: a slick new development home to some of the city’s most exciting new addresses, many of which knock out a magnificent brunch.
So start your day right and read on for the very best breakfast and brunch in Manchester. Hangover, be gone!
