Breakfast in Manchester: 5 Must-Try Spots

Going out for brekkie on the weekend is my favourite thing to do. I wouldn’t be good at recommending bars but I can surely tell you where to go for breakfast in Manchester, especially in the Northern Quarter.

Where to Get Breakfast in Manchester?


Federal Cafe & Bar

Federal Cafe is a must-visit Aussie-inspired spot with an all-day brunch menu.

Their smashed avocado, poached eggs and smoked salmon on toast is my favourite item of the menu. However I’ve seen their French toast and its looks absolutely glorious. I would also recommend to get yourself a homemade brownie.

Moose Cafe

Moose is a UK chain serving American-style breakfasts and brunches. If you can’t make you mind up, the menu will give you a hard time. There’s literally several dozens of options for egg breakfasts, pancakes and co.

Treat yourself and get the fluffy blueberry pancakes or try the cheesy pancakes with fried eggs, bacon and maple syrup.

Vivid Thai Kitchen

Authentic Thai food, chilled ambiance and great value for money: Vivid Thai Kitchen has it all. I have to admit that I haven’t been very adventurous yet and I only had their coconut porridge which is truly delicious. But the salmon power bowl and papaya salad seem quite interesting.

This place has also a very nice outside area so it’s a good one for breakfast in Manchester during Summer.


Ezra and Gil

Ezra and Gil which respectively mean “helper” and “happiness” is a place of choice for any fan of coffee shops with a unique style. I went there with my boyfriend on a rainy Sunday morning. We sat at a table by the window and could have stayed for hours.

You won’t go wrong with the salmon on rye served with cream cheese and a poached egg (picture at the beginning of the post). Or you can satisfy your sweet tooth with the French toast that comes with berries, white chocolate crumble and some delicious maple mascarpone. This is so far the best breakfast I’ve had in Manchester.


Fig and Sparrow

Fig and Sparrow is a cozy and welcoming little spot where you can choose from a variety of toasts (you pick your bread and your toppings), porridges and yummy vegan/gluten free treats. The breakfast menu is reasonably priced and the nice atmosphere makes you want to order another coffee and stay a bit longer.

I can recommend the avocado and salmon toast (on fig and nuts bread) as well as the vegan brownies. Plus, coffee is really good.
