By Megan James

Manchester has truly embraced the brunch trend, giving us some of the best brunches the North has to offer. Here are just six of what we deem to be the best brunches in Manchester, helping you make the most important meal of the day that little bit more exciting.

Rustik, West Didsbury

Why? Rustik is a family run restaurant situated on leafy Burton Road, serving up some mouth-watering brunches that are so beautiful you won’t be able to resist snapping a picture for the gram. From their Turkish poached eggs to the traditional smashed avocado on sourdough, you’ll find something for everyone in this humble eatery.

How much? The brunches range from £5-£12, with an option to add-on extras for £2 each.

Kettlebell Kitchen, Ancoats & First Street


Why? Kettlebell kitchen offers nutritious protein packed food which is all cooked fresh on site, proving that just because their food is healthy, doesn’t mean it has to be bland. Try their clean grill-up or protein pancakes for a brunch will make you feel unreal afterwards, trust us.

Solomons, Withington

Why? Situated at the heart of Withington high street, you won’t have to bother getting a magic bus to get to this quirky brunch spot. Serving up classics such as eggs benedict and croque monsieur, this cool hipster café is a massive hit among student locals.

 How much? Ranging from £3.50 to £9, with students able to get an extra 10% off everything by showing a valid student I.D.

Brewski, Mosley Street & Chorlton


Why? Not for the faint hearted, this famous brunch spot serves up an absolute beast of a breakfast. The Brewski brunch board contains the same amount of food as six individual fry ups, the perfect place to come with your housemates when feeling a tad fragile. Alternatively, if you’ve ever wondered if you could take on a Man Vs. Food American eating challenge, you can attempt to defeat this monster yourself.

How much? The sharing breakfast costs £40, but shared between six of you that’s a little over £6 each. House day out anyone?

Black Dog Ballroom, Northern Quarter & New Wakefield Street

Why? Two words, bottomless brunch. Yes, that’s right, unlimited alcohol whilst feasting on a delicious brunch, what more could a student ask for?

Or head to the one on New Wakefield Street just off Oxford Road to get your hangover fix.
