Where to go for halal breakfast in Manchester City Centre

*Updated April 2023*

I eat out quite a bit in Manchester City Centre, usually after work or for lunch, and every once in a while I treat myself to a breakfast out too. Here’s a look at places in Manchester City Centre and beyond where you can go for halal breakfast or brunch.

If you find this post useful, consider sending me a £ tip (Monzo link here) to say thanks and if nothing else a kind request to remember me in your duas 🙂


1. Chai Latte

Chai Latte Halal Full English Breakfast

Based in the Northern Quarter, Chai Latte has more of a casual feel than the other halal breakfast places I’ve written about here. They describe themselves as “Pioneers of the halal full English breakfast”.

They’re open from 8am and their “full English” costs £7.50 including: Two Sausages, Fried Egg, Three Rashers Turkey Bacon, Hash Brown, Baked Beans, Mushrooms, Tomato, Toast with Freshly Ground Coffee/Pot of Tea.

I haven’t visited for breakfast recently, but I remember going there in a group of around 8 girlfriends who were visiting Manchester and everyone liked it! As I recall they have a space to pray here too plus the menu has some good vegetarian options too.

2. Evelyn’s

Also based in the Northern Quarter, Evelyn’s has a cool kinda vibe (all the Muslim bloggers from outside of Manchester make a point to visit when they’re in town) and that’s reflected in the options on their breakfast menu – you won’t find dishes like this in many other places!

For example, the most expensive item on the breakfast menu, at £12.50 is “steak & egg, flat iron, fried egg, watercress, shoestring fries, avocado oil”

Go here if you’re feeling hip and want some instagram-worthy food!

Breakfast is available Monday to Sunday 9am until 12pm.

3. Essy’s

Essy’s opened in May 2020, and due to a lack of breakfast and brunching out that year(!) I haven’t had a chance to try them myself. They’re located on King Street – the end that runs down the side of House of Fraser. They’re not fully halal, and do have bacon and ham on their menu, but they also clearly state halal options are available.

Their “All Day Halal Breakfast” includes: 2 peri peri sausages, turkey bacon, 2 fried eggs, 2 hash browns, 2 slices of toast, beans, mushrooms and grilled tomato, all for £8.50 (although if you’re ordering from Deliveroo/Just Eat/ whatever then price might be different)

4. Comptoir Libanais

This Lebanese restaurant in Spinningfields opens at 10am every day and serves breakfast until 11.30am. They have your usual breakfast pastries and the rest of the menu has a Lebanese twist, like the granola with date syrup and roasted mixed nuts, plus some tasty looking cooked breakfast options too. Their “Comptoir Full Breakfast” includes: Spicy Armenian lamb sausage, fool moudamas (I have not idea what this is!!) zaatar roasted mushrooms, sumac fried egg, chargrilled tomato, Lebanese potatoes and flat bread. All this for £8.45 which is rather reasonable in my opinion!

I haven’t been here for breakfast, but I’ve visited for dinner quite a few times including with large groups – this is quite a big restaurant so if you’re a bigger group this place can probably accommodate.

Also, the Lebanese spiced hot choc is amazing!

5. Caramello Didsbury

Outside of the city centre, if you head to Didsbury, nestled down a side street you will find Caramello. They describe themselves as an “Artisan Cafe, Gelato & Patisserie”.

Their menu is fully halal, with turkey bacon used in their Full English cooked breakfast, and some great vegetarian options too. The awesome thing about this place is they serve breakfast all day! So for you super super late breakfasters, this is THE place to go. They’re open 9am – 5pm Monday – Sunday.

Their Full English comes in at £9.50 and includes: eggs, sausages, turkey bacon, beans, breakfast mushrooms, hash brown, grilled tomato and toast.

I visited on a Saturday late morning, and there was a bit of a wait for a table, because it’s pretty small inside and they don’t take bookings unless your group has 8 or more, but it was totally worth it. I believe they’ve opened up the upstairs now too, so I think there’s more seating.

6. Biskits Withington

One of my faves for dessert, Biskits in Withington also have brunch on their menu. They’re open from 10am every day and on the menu you will find a selection of sweet breakfast choices including french toast and pancake stacks and traditional cooked breakfast options. The Full English and Vegetarian English come in at £11.95 each.

7. Tutku’s Cafe Chorlton

Another place I visited recently, outside of the city centre was Tutku’s Cafe in Chorlton. Their menu isn’t fully halal, but they do assure you that their halal meat is cooked separately to their non-halal options.

On their cooked breakfast menu they have 3 halal options and lots of vegetarian choices too. Your standard halal cooked breakfast come with: 1 fried egg, two slices of turkish sausage, tomato, mushrooms, a hash brown and some baked beans – all for £5.80. Their “Big Halal Breakfast” is pretty much the same, but in larger quantities.

They also do a “Turkish Breakfast” where your eggs and Turkish sausage are served with fresh sliced tomatoes, cucumber, feta cheese, halloumi cheese, olives and jam.

In terms of the cafe itself, it’s deceptively big, I was surprised to see so many tables when I went in. The atmosphere was really relaxed and staff were friendly.

They only accept cash, which is a bit of an inconvenience, however there are lots of banks in this area of Chorlton (the road junction is even nicknames “four banks” because there’s a bank on each corner!).

8. House of Chai

House of Chai opened towards the end of 2019 in Fallowfield, formerly a restaurant called “Eat Meat”, this place now specialises in breakfast, brunch and of course – CHAI! All the food here is halal and their Full English breakfast comes in at £7.90 including: spicy beans, avocado slices, grilled tomato, hash browns, sausage, fried egg, served with sourdough bread. They also offer a “Full Desi” breakfast at £.790 which has spicy beans, daal or channa, omelette, kebab served with a fresh paratha. There’s vegetarian alternatives and if  the halal desi / english breakfast doesn’t take your fancy they also serve “international” breakfast dishes like Shakshouka, Turkish Eggs, Dahiya al Basha and….French Toast!

House if Chai is open 10am – 5pm all week. I haven’t visited myself, but have walked / driven past a few times and it seems like quite a small intimate space, so perhaps not great for groups? Once I’ve been I’ll update!

9. Brunchville

Located in Eccles, the name of this place says it all really! I haven’t visited myself, but can tell you that everything on the menu here is halal. They are open Monday, Wednesday – Sunday 09:00 – 16.00, but closed on Tuesdays. Their signature breakfast, called “The Brunchville” comes with sausages (beef or spicy beef), beef rashers, hash browns, fried egg, beans and grilled tomato with sautéed mushrooms and onions, all served with your choice of toast, waffle or skin on fries, for £8.95.

I like the look of the their “The Benglish” breakfast which is basically a spicier version of the above and you can order that with a paratha instead of toast/waffles/fries. Another thing they do differently to other places  are their Brunchboards – which are like sharing platters.

They have a good mix of vegetarian options too, and I spotted one vegan choice too.
