Breakfast and brunch come in all shapes and sizes in Manchester. This can make decision making a difficult task, and with so much choice across the city you could end up wasting precious minutes faffing around instead of noshing on incredible foods. So don't waste anymore time going hungry - whether you're searching for the cure or arranging a fancy afternoon out, we've got you covered. Here's our pick of the best places to get your fix in the city:

Moose Café

Open for nearly a decade - this place is still killing it. Coming here you'll be treated to the best of the best of American diner food. Yes, that's everything from pancakes to eggs Benedict, great coffee and stacked sambos. What more would you want?


The Koffee Pot

If you're looking for a greasy spoon without the grease - The Koffee Pot is your spot. It's as clean as the fry comes. We recommend the full Irish which is like an English breakfast but with the addition of a key ingredient - white puddings. You'll get great value for money and a beast of a feast here.
