Terrace NQ

2 user reviews 5

Cool and casual, Terrace NQ are all about the big breakfast plates, serving a full English all day. If bacon, sausages and black pudding isn't your cup of tea, the spot has lighter dishes including eggs benedict, or for those with a sweet tooth, a wide range of homemade cakes.

North Tea Power

A cool, all-day hangout, North Tea Power worships at the altar of breakfast food. The independent coffee shops serves up classics until the early evening; tuck into the likes of bacon sarnies, eggs on toast and porridge, all washed down with a long list of herbal teas.

Home Sweet Home

From the towering cakes to the boozy milkshakes, Home Sweet Home is a must for anyone with a sweet tooth. The American-inspired brunch restaurant will wipe away any morning blues with its titan breakfasts; opt for pancake stacks with a breakfast cocktail thrown in for good measure.

One of the Northern Quarters coolest brunch spots, Federal Cafe & Bar is bringing a little Australian attitude to your feasting. Proving they know a thing or two about early mornings, this place will keep you coming back for banana bread, omelettes, Turkish eggs and bagels.
