Top 5 Roasts

Hawksmoor – City Centre

This London lot do it properly… recently voted no.1 by you guys, we recommend getting down there early afternoon to avoid missing out!

The Refuge by VOLTA – City Centre

We could’ve listed The Refuge in both categories and more… take the kids, take the dogs, drinks, dinner, LIVE music… the perfect Sunday spot!

Albert’s Schloss – City Centre

Sunday Service @ Schloss is pretty magical; they have a gospel choir on all afternoon! The Cook Haus provides everything you need in the BIG breakfasts & Sunday Lunch dept. meanwhile you need look no further than the Tank Beer in their Beer Palace. Again, kids & dogs welcome.

Nationale 7 – Northern Quarter

Right in the heart of the newly refurbed Mackie Mayor these boys & girls know how to roast… their rotisserie dishes will set up your Sunday no worries.

Hispi – Didsbury Village

Got to be home to Didsbury’s best dishes?! Chef Gary Usher and the Hispi team produce perfect British bistro cuisine all week but their roast is perhaps that extra bit special.

Top 5 Brunches

Federal – Northern Quarter

Inspired by NZ & AUS this is the place to put the ‘sun’ in your Sunday! Serving up gourmet coffee, speciality teas, delicious brunches, bagels, beers etc. etc.

Another Heart to Feed – West Didsbury

Recently relocated to West Village on Burton Rd this lot can brunch… walk into their fresh flavours Weds-Sun and they’ll do the rest!

Jack of all trades. Master of all trades. Trove. It’s a bakery it’s a cafe it’s a bar…it’s in Levenshulme it’s in Altrincham and soon it’ll be in Ancoats. More HERE

The Beastro boys know a thing or three about breakfast… with a butchery background and best value bangers & bacon in the city centre this is a must for meat lovers.
