20 places serving bottomless brunch in Manchester

2 years ago

It’s important to note from the get-go that we’re playing fast and loose with the term “brunch” here. The trained individual will spot a few intruders on our list. Pizza isn’t usually reserved for brunch we know – unless it’s the remnants of last night’s takeaway – but you’re just going to have to go with it.

Besides, the most important part, the “bottomless” part, is what we’re all here for, right?

Get stuck into classic brunches of the poached egg variety at The Bay Horse, pancakes with pistachio and hazelnut cream at Sicilian NQ, or pair your breakfast martini with a side of katsu bao at Cottonopolis.
