1. The Counter House

This fairly new Ancoats eatery is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and they serve up a great mixture of comfort food and healthy options.

Their full vegan breakfast is one of the best dishes in the whole city and is symbolic of their inventive and super creative menu.

2. Rustik Cafe Bar

Rustik is a small cosy restaurant in West Didsbury where you will feel at home straight away. It turns into a bar at night with live music on the weekends, but the real magic of the place is their brunch menu.

They do great burgers, eggs, fried chicken and if you are feeling a little cheeky then their cocktails are an absolute must.

3. Federal Cafe Bar

They now have two locations in the city (Deansgate and Northern Quarter) where they serve up a little slice of Antipodean happiness in the heart of the city.

Their food is inventive, tasty and colourful and the only thing that potentially tops it are their wonderful coffees. Be prepared to queue at the weekend as it is well known as one of the best Manchester brunch spots.

4. Evelyn’s Cafe & Bar

A stunning space in the Northern Quarter that has a very New York feel to it with high ceilings and large windows.

They have a cocktail bar downstairs and the food is outstanding all week long, but the weekend brunch is where the real action is.

Some wonderfully inventive dishes including healthy options and delicious drinks make this a must-visit in the city.

5. Another Heart To Feed

Another Heart to Feed has a simple room where the focus is very much on the brunch. They also serve awesome coffee with some of the best sweets you’ll ever taste.

Their breakfast tasting board gives you a little bit of everything and is the way to go along with some of their wonderful freshly squeezed juice.

Make sure to try the brownies. You won’t regret it.

6. Cottonopolis

This is a super popular city centre restaurant that is inspired by Japanese flavours, and is housed in a Grade II listed building. Beautiful surroundings and beautiful food = brunch heaven.

The perfect place to come at the weekends with a large group of friends to get the party started with some quality food and tasty cocktails.

7. Common

Common serves up proper comfort food, with the added bonus that their brunch is available all week long. You’ll find all the classics like French toast, burgers and full English breakfasts on the menu.

You will want to bring a serious appetite though, as their portions are on the large side. As an added bonus their cocktails are quite simply delicious.
