during a long weekend in manchester, it only made sense to find somewhere that did a decent breakfast. turning to twitter and fellow food bloggers, we thought the koffee pot in the northern quarter of manchester sounded perfect. a good breakfast done well is just as important as lunch or dinner, in my opinion.
with an ever changing, home cooked menu, the choices range from a hearty full english, haggis and black pudding right through to buttermilk pancakes and cornflake tarts with a cuppa.
whether you're looking for a hangover cure or just a caffeine hit and a cake, this place serves a mix of traditional and experimental food offerings 7 days a week, throughout the day. heading over for a late breakfast, i went for the kippers on sourdough toast with a poached egg and mustard butter, whilst my boyfriend chose the classic full english.
smokey kipper, sharp and well textured mustard butter, velvety poached egg and crunchy toast. this was de-licious! i'm so glad i wasn't hungover as these flavours were all totally stunning, albeit very strong, and complemented each other so well.
i present to you on of their whopping full english dishes! i believe he went for the one which has double of everything; as well as spam, a potato cake and black pudding. definitely a northern breakfast! though i should say, they also serve lunch dishes such as burgers, posh sarnies and homemade stews.
anyone else transported back to the 90s with this golden offering of nostalgia on a plate? when i spied the cornflake tarts, i had to have one. crumbly pastry, sticky jam and congealed cereal make up this near perfect dessert. also offered with ambrosia custard. oh. yes.
