Are you a foodie? Do you love to indulge yourself in the best grub until the food coma hits? Okay, good. Keep reading and you will find out all about the best places to eat in Manchester.

Black Milk Cereal Cafe

Black Milk Cereal


Whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or simply a snack, cereal is never a bad idea. This isn’t just the regular old pour-in-the-bowl, add-the-milk-and-you’re-done cereal either. At Black Milk, there are huge selections of cereals from around the world to choose from. Then, to top it off, you can pick toppings, like Smarties or Oreos, to add. And, it doesn’t end there. You can then choose the flavour of milk you would like! This isn’t just cereal, this is genius.

Black Milk Cereal Cafe: 52 Church Street, Manchester, M4 1PW

Bosu Body Bar


Always bolt whenever someone mentions the word ‘healthy’? Well, think again! Bosu Body Bar combines healthy, protein-filled food with delicious flavours in a takeaway-style box. First you choose your box size, then your base, which can consist of delicious sweet mash, brown rice or bulghar wheat and quinoa. Then, you pick your sides such as root veg or apple coleslaw, before selecting your protein. Again there is a huge array of options on offer, such as prawns, meat, halloumi and more. Finally, pick your sauce and you have a box full of flavours on flavours. And the best bit? There’s no feeling of guilt afterwards. Win/win!

Bosu Body Bar: 559 Barlow Moor Road, Manchester M21 8AN & 741 / Wilmslow Road, Didsbury, Manchester, M21 8AN

Almost Famous


This restaurant is all about the combination of masses. Not only masses of food, but masses of flavours combined, giving your taste-buds a field day. We’re talking sausage patties topped with egg and Cheerios. Beef patties topped with chorizo, blue cheese, jalapenos and crisps. And that’s just the mains. The sides get even better: mac balls, wings and a selection of fries topped with an array of ingredients which can all be washed down with a vast selection of cocktails, soft drinks or funky shakes.

Almost Famous: Unit 2, Great Northern Warehouse, Peter Street, M3 4EJ & 101 – 102 High Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 1HP

Home Sweet Home


If you love cake then Home Sweet Home is a must. Think brightly coloured cakes decorated with sweets and chocolates, and even donuts! You’ve never seen anything quite like them before and they taste as good as they look. Don’t worry though – you won’t need seconds. Calling one of these huge slabs a ‘slice’ is an understatement! Home Sweet Home also serve amazing savoury food with an array of options from eggs benedict to tacos. It’s safe to say there will be something here for everyone.

51 Edge Street, Manchester, M4 1HW & Unit 4 Great Northern, Watson Street, Manchester, M3 4EN
