Where the Northern Quarter’s hangovers come to die. There’s street art on the walls, the full English is a beast, and cups of tea cost £1.50.

It may have moved round the corner from its original Stevenson Square spot, but it seems geography means nothing as Koffee Pot remains the Northern Quarter’s destination of choice for grease-laden, hangover banishing breakfasts. But this is no ordinary greasy spoon – its interior features vibrant street art (credit is due to Manchester-based artist Hammo) overlooking spacious red booths.

A full English (emphasis on the word ‘full’) comes in at £6.50 and you can add extras such as spam, potato cake and black pudding. For those in search of variety, they've upped their lunch game with dishes such as salt beef bagels, haggis with spinach and eggs, extravagant sarnies and kippers on sourdough toast, moated by mustard butter with a poached egg plonked on top. The smoked haddock rarebit on sourdough toast comes with a kick of Tabasco, sure to make you sweat out last night's frolics.

The service is fast. Tea and filter coffee is £1.50 and both come served in sizable builders' mugs; a suitable companion when reminiscing about the night before with a highly satisfied stomach. You can also get hot Vimto for a mere quid - that should give you a good gague of the kind of place this is.

Favourite place to get breakfast in Central Manchester. I usually stick to one thing I like in cafes I know but this one has so many different and tasty options I know whatever I get it will be great. The staff are super nice and are always understand when they have to bring our table 3 drinks each to calm are hangovers.

Koffee Pot is a Manchester institution, and it's not hard to see why. It may have moved to a new location, but it's still the same old Koffee Pot we know and love. The meanest hangover is no match for their full English breakfast, which is an absolute bargain at just £8. If you're popping in for breakfast/brunch on a Saturday or Sunday though, be prepared to sit and wait for a table as it gets pretty busy.
