Home Sweet Home Best Place For Brunch | Manchester Food Review

One of my absolute favourite places for breakfast/brunch in Manchester is definitely HOME SWEET HOME!

Back in 2011, they first opened a little restaurant in the cool side of Manchester – Northern Quarter

As soon as you walk in, you’re met with a bustling bohemian vibe. The interior design is adorably shabby chic and cosy, and the type of customers can range from professional couples sipping on their morning coffee by the window bar, to families picking up sweet cakes and milkshakes by the cake counter

There are still queues every weekend I walk past, with upto an hour wait sometimes – so it’s definitely the best place for brunch in Manchester!

The menu is fairly simple but great value for money. You’ll find all your favourite comfort foods, such as eggs bennie, breakfast waffles and eggs on toast – I always go for the Bennie Macho!


But they are also famed for their massive slices of cakes! All of them are multi layered cakes with the most amazing toppings you’ll ever see. I’ve seen cakes with a whole Easter Egg on top mixed in with several bars of Kinder Buenos!

I’ve also seen bright pink cakes, with various French Fancies, Cherry Bakewells and Battenbergs decorated all over – my version of a sweet coma!

Second to their legendary cakes, are their delicious milkshakes. We ordered an amazing Oreo milkshake, whilst the table next to us ordered the Birthday Shake which literally consisted of a birthday cake and candle on top! That’s a meal in itself!

Home Sweet Home’s popularity grew and grew so much, that in 2015 they opened another restaurant in The Great Northern Warehouse, this time just off Deansgate.

This is the one I now go to, as it’s closer to me whenever I’m in the city

This space is much bigger with an outdoor seating area, and the indoor seating spans across 2 floors, where they can even accommodate private parties upstairs

I absolutely love the interior design at this location! Think pastel colours, patterned tiled floors with low hanging pendant lamps everywhere – so very Instagram! x
