If you venture further a field away from Manchester's bohemian Northern Quarter there are still plenty of great places to delve into a brilliant brunch. Amongst these is standout The Cornerhouse. Renowned for its relaxing atmosphere and the staff's attentive care. It's the perfect place to unwind and spend the mid-morning reading your paper. After you've tucked into some of their delicious grub, why not spend some time in their cinema.

Popular Northern Quarter chain Odd Bar has a tasty option for brunch. If you head down to the bar and restaurant before 3pm a world of tasty treats await, such as the bar's infamous 'The Monster' dish - expect exactly what the description reads. Whilst you're there it would be rude not to divulge in a few beers or cocktails - bliss.
