5 Of the best places to brunch in the North West this weekend
It symbols the start of the weekend and there’s nothing we here at ParentFolk crave more than a great brunch when Saturday comes around. Gone are the days when the only option for brunch means a greasy fry up. If there’s one thing the North West does well its brunch. From green juices, to Korean chicken, and from perscatarian brunches to the bottomless ones, we’ve picked 5 of the best North West places to brunch this weekend.
Evelyn’s Café Bar, Manchester
You’ll find Evelyn’s on Tib Street in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. This is the place to head for a healthy breakfast. If you need to replenish your green’s then order the ‘Green Bowl’; Kale, spinach, herbs and lentils with avocado and seeds, or if you fancy something a little more adventurous opt for the Korean chicken, served on a toasted roll with fried egg, chill and watercress, we did, it’s brunch perfection.
Served from brunch- 5pm
Blackberry Grove, New Brighton, Wirral
One of ParentFolk’s favourite independents on the Wirral, Blackberry Grove is food heaven for everyone, including vegans and vegetarians. With an exciting and varied menu brunch ranges from the Blackberry Brunch (a traditional cooked breakfast) to tasty and flavoursome healthy options like the Avocado Brunch; Chilli, tomatoes, basil, salad and freshly squeezed lime on a warm toasted ciabatta. You’ll receive a warm welcome too, the accolade of ‘Outstanding Customer Care’ at last year’s Wirral Tourism Awards wasn’t awarded for just anything!
Breakfast served from 11am
Restaurant 1539, Chester, Cheshire.
The statement restaurant and bar at Chester Racecourse, first launched brunch with the addition of free yoga classes last year with local instructor and Sweaty Betty Ambassador, Caroline Buist, on their outside, heated, covered terrace. The successful weekly offering (Yoga session Saturday mornings 10.30am-11.30am no need to book) has now been extended to appeal to a wider set of consumers.
We love this place because Brunch at 1539 is a cool affair. Guests feast on French toast with mascarpone and blueberries, smashed avocado on toast or a proper English fry up. Better still, when guests dine from the brunch or lunch menu, they are invited to order as many Bloody Marys, glasses of Prosecco or Bellinis as they like – for an additional £15 per person.* (*Terms and conditions apply see Restaurant 1539 website for details)
The Bottomless Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday at Restaurant 1539.
Leaf on Bold Street, Liverpool
ParentFolk love this independent teashop in the heart of the city, Leaf also offers a great breakfast. Enjoy a traditional cooked breakfast with all the trimmings or alternative choices such as the vegan breakfast served with falafel sausages, roast vine tomatoes, field mushrooms, baked beans, country seeded bloomer and pureed avocado or the Pescatarian breakfast with smoked salmon, roasted vine tomatoes, eggs, field mushrooms, beans, potato croquet and granary toast.
There’s a wide selection of breakfast menu choices available.. but it’s nothing compared to the choice of tea’s.
Breakfast/ Brunch served 9am-3pm at weekends
Victor’s, Hale, Cheshire
Casual fine dining, this delightful Hale restaurant serves up a sophisticated brunch. A contemporary American feel to its dishes, their dishes are inspired by the East Coast’s take on international dishes. There’s classic American breakfast dishes on the menu such as the stack of pancakes, huevos rancheros, or avocado and eggs, but they also serve a very English cooked breakfast too! If you love a great juice menu this is the place to head. With juices including Go Away Doc, containing beetroot, carrots, cucumber, mixed berries, raspberries and lime, and the day brightening ‘Good Morning Sunshine’ with orange, pineapple, banana and honey, there are plenty of reasons to head to Victor’s, Hale.
Breakfast served Saturday and Sunday from 10am
