From the brunches of the bottomless variety to quirky brunches consisting of pizzas and chicken wings, we’ve kind of seen it all here in Manchester. But now, we get to take it outside. There’s something a little Parisian about being able to enjoy brunch on an outdoor terrace, watching the world pass by as you start your day with eggs and pastries – and we’re so ready to say ‘bonjour!’ to the whole concept. Feel like whacking on your beret and doing the same? Read on for our guide to outdoor brunch in Manchester.
