Top 5 Brunches in Manchester

22 August 2018 | Natalie Wilson

Taking time out to enjoy brunch in Manchester is something that everyone should experience, no matter if you’re a local or a visiting tourist. If you’re not in the know, brunch is the mouth-watering combination of breakfast and lunch, arguably two of the best meals of the day. Brunch can be served anytime from 10 am and the dishes usually include eggs in some varying style. Manchester has some of the best eateries in the North of England and they tend to take brunch pretty seriously so, if you’re in the city and are looking for a brunch hot-spot, here are some of the best places to eat in Manchester.

Koffee Pot
A well-loved Manchester institution, the Koffee Pot is a must-visit if you’re looking for one of Manchester’s best brunch locations. Set in the chilled-out Northern Quarter area, Koffee Pot is the destination of choice for those looking to banish the worst of hangovers after a night out in the local bars. This is no ordinary cafe, however, as the menu includes dishes including smoked haddock on sourdough toast, served with a side of poached eggs and fiery tabasco tomatoes and the KP Full English, complete with black pudding, fried spam and potato cakes.

The Koffee Pot is located at 84-86 Oldham St, Northern Quarter, Manchester M4 1LE
 
Mackie Mayor
If you’re visiting Manchester with someone who is relatively indecisive, then bring them to multi-vendor market venue Mackie Mayor. With such a huge and varied range of delicious food on offer, there will be something that even the fussiest of eaters will enjoy. All of Mackie Mayor’s food is locally sourced and the vendors focus on using ingredients which are of the highest quality. If you’re feeling particularly hungry, then why not try a few offerings from the numerous vendors? This is one of the best places in Manchester to eat if you’re looking to experience Manchester’s unique atmosphere, as it is set in one of the city’s old market buildings.

Albert’s Schloss
If you’re visiting Manchester with the intention of spending the day exploring the city’s numerous bars and pubs, then a visit to Albert’s Schloss is the best way to start your day. Made fresh daily at their in-house bakery, try one of their resident Cruffins or Cronuts - they are a Manchester delicacy not to be missed. If you’re looking for a slightly healthier start to the day, order one of their super grain bowls. Made up of mixed grains, avocado, poached eggs and pickled carrot, this is a taste sensation. All brunch dishes can be enjoyed alongside a pint of one of their 10 heritage brews, or alpine themed cocktails for a true brunch experience.

Moose Coffee
For those with a slightly sweeter tooth, Moose Coffee is a Canadian and New York influenced cafe and coffee house. Their menu has 25 brunch options alone, with several options reserved for Eggs Benedict variations. A must-try is the New Brunswick Eggs Benedict, a dish made up of a toasted bagel, two poached eggs, potato hash, slow-cooked beef brisket and a generous helping of their homemade hollandaise sauce. If you’re a coffee lover, you’re in for a treat with their extensive hot drinks menu, or if you’re after something a little more indulgent, give their Chocolate Peanut Butter milkshake a taste.

Alabama’s
Alongside the classic Full English, Alabama’s have a wide variety of delicious brunch dishes on offer. From ham hock omelettes to crab, pesto and spinach cakes, there’s no shortage of tasty and imaginative brunch pairings. Why not attempt a stack of their famous buttermilk pancakes instead or slices of their fluffy french toast topped with heaps of berries and banoffee pieces instead? This is a weekend hotspot in Manchester and is the perfect stop-off if you’re hungry and in the mood for good food. Their cocktail list is exclusively themed around brunch, so trying one alongside your dish is a must-do. Enjoy a Breakfast Martini for a real brunch sensation!
