Whether it’s a beloved Northern Quarter institution, a boozy Withington hangout or elegant, world-renowned Bombay cuisine, the ever-expanding list of Manchester’s vegan brunch options offers almost too much to pick from before they start afternoon tea service.

We’ve rounded up our favourites:

Koffee Pot | Northern Quarter

Offering heaving plant-based fry-ups, cinnamon apple waffles, ‘veggie bennies’ (vegan eggs benedict) and a meatless ‘MancMuffin’, the Oldham Street linchpin covers all the bases with its breakfast and brunch menu.

Dishoom | Bridge Street

With almost four years of roaring and wholly predictable success under its belt, the Manchester branch of Dishoom, London’s favourite Indian for over a decade, offers an extensive vegan menu. While their breakfast choices include Akuri, naan sausage roll and date and banana porridge, you’ve got all day to try the pineapple tikka, gunpowder potatoes and many more, washed down with a vegan lassi.

Another restaurant which devotedly stretches its brunch menu beyond both edges of the average working day, Ezra & Gil’s Hilton Street branch serves enormous vegan breakfasts and fruit-laden organic porridge between 7:30am and 5pm, while their Peter Street outpost offers poke bowls and roasted cauliflower dishes from open to close.
