Sunday Brunching at Pot Kettle Black

We fall into old habits when it comes to Sunday brunch.

Too quickly we jump straight to our old favourites, Federal, Ezra & Gil, Harvey Nics, Evelyn’s…all amazing, but it was time to branch out.

Pot Kettle Black is a place that comes up on every ‘Top 10 Brunch’ list in Manchester so it was about time we gave it a go.


It’s tucked away in the beautiful Barton Arcade right in the middle of town. Perfectly located for anyone wanting to escape the Christmas shopping madness for an hour or so. We grabbed a couple of stools and perched by the window.

They pride themselves on coffee and Brunch. Now I can’t vouch for the coffee, but I can vouch for the brunch.

The breakfast menu has eggs basically every way/anyway you’d like them, with a couple of muesli and porridge options thrown in for good measure and blueberry French toast if you’re trying to satisfy your sweet tooth. So all our favourite things really. Even better, they serve breakfast all day, so it’s definitely one to remember for those days when you can’t quite make it out of bed before midday!

Anyway, I went for a classic eggs florentine with caramelised shallots and crispy kale,


and Haze went for Nduja eggs.


A bowl of runny eggs, smoked mozzarella & tomatoes, topped with a bit more cheese & a bit of spice to give it a kick.


Served with a couple of slices of sourdough to mop everything up.


We both asked for an extra dollop of avo…because avo is life, right!?


Perfectly runny egg, cue *yolk porn*


All washed down with a couple of super orange smoothies


and some fresh mint tea.


We couldn’t resist taking away a couple of delicious looking brownies & flapjacks to have later that evening whilst snuggled down watching Strictly & X Factor. They have vegan options too which is, yano, super good if you’re that way inclined (and I can confirm the vegan brownie is amazing).

It’s the perfect place to while away a Sunday Morning with a cup of tea and people watch, or like I said, the perfect place to escape the crowds and refuel in between Christmas Shopping.

Happy brunching.
