Edge Street’s Home Sweet Home has long been an institution. The kind of venue that attracts queues around the block for a brunchtime table on the weekends. And I, for one, am often part of that queue. Opening way back in 2012, Home Sweet Home began life as one of the pioneering restaurants of the Northern Quarter’s ‘hipster’ image, loved for its casual all-American approach to brunch (milkshakes with cherries on top included).
Now, after a temporary closure, Home Sweet Home is back as Home Sweet – marking a new, fresh chapter for the brunch favourite.
Returning with a new “little ray of sunshine” look for 2022, Home Sweet is bringing all-around happy vibes with its brand new look, boasting plenty of yellow, tons of greenery and light pastel shades throughout – a great way to cheer up a grey day in Manchester.
In addition to the lick of paint, Home Sweet has also concocted a brand new menu, too, but fans fear not – as staples such as pancakes and brunch favourites remain firmly on the menu. Expect loaded breakfast buns, Eggs Benny, breakfast tater tots, pancakes and more American goodies for breakfast, alongside larger plates for the rest of the day including birria beef hoagies, buttermilk chicken, and even an In-N-Out inspired burger.
Unfortunately for cake lovers, the beloved bakery counter seizes to exist – however, it has been replaced with a new pop-up space that local businesses can utilise – starting with local cookie bakery, Disco Biscuit, who are serving epic, melty cookies and whopping cookie pies.
