    One of the best breakfasts we have ever had. Between us, we had the Goats cheese, mushroom and truffle omelette - it was incredible! The porridge - fresh fruit, sweet and amazing candied pecans! Corn fritters with smoked salmon, so fresh and delicious! The coffee was fabulous, We had the tumeric latte with oat milk - a must try! So very nice! The hot chocolate which was drunk very quickly as it was so good! The service was fabulous. I was very pleasantly surprised! We will be back again!

    One of the coolest places to have breakfast ever, I would advise you even if u are passing for a one night this is the place to have breakfast, just drop the hotel breakfast and head there and you won’t get disappointed at all, the avocado and eggs or the eggs chorizo is very tasty, they are very creative with the menu and would never turn you away if u are gluten intolerant specially if u crave a French Toast that is gluten free, they would just have a solution to make you enjoy ur day maybe not the same taste but at least ur’re a taste of satisfaction.

    Day off in Manchester and 5 of us turned up at Federal on a busy Saturday morning. No room inside so we took a table out in the (very) fresh street. A very pleasant server took our orders and within a few minutes our hot drinks arrived, followed by our food. I had an excellent poached egg, mushroom, halloumi and chorizo on sourdough toast. My fellow breakfasteers has variations on this, really great looking porridge with fruit and coffees. All served by a succession of really pleasant waitresses who didn’t seem to mind the cold. Food great. Didn’t really sample the atmosphere other than ordering & using the toilet facilities. Clean btw. We’ll be back!

    A nice cafe to get lost in. Food exceptional. Atmosphere lovely and lively. Great for friends to catch up/couples or a bite to eat whilst shopping. The only downside is you may have to wait half an hour or an for a table, but it is definitely worth the wait.

    Stumbled across this rustic cafe for breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I’m usually a tea drinker but tried their coffee and loved it. I had the yoghurt with fresh fruit, again lovely, and my partner had scrambled egg with bacon on toast, which went down well. One little gripe was I had to send my cutlery back twice due to not being cleaned thoroughly. Would recommend and revisit myself.

    Hands down best breakfast joint in Manchester. Food is fantastic. Love the acovado & poached eggs and salmon. The bread is nice and crispy. Super healthy food and tasty. The staff are such lovely people. can adjust easily to any type of customer. Felt welcomed right away. Quick service. Good price. Highly recommend this place for brunch and breakfast (all day)

    Arrived approx. 9:30 on a Sunday morning - already pretty much full. Waitress very helpful and friendly. She guessed a table for 4 wait would take at least 25 mins, but was able to move a table of 2 over to a different table so the other 2 on the large table were nearly finished. Then shortly after we were seated. Food was delicious. French toast was fantastic with fresh berries - but a little too much mascarpone cream for me. Just wish they served the cheddar corn fritters before 12pm - would loved to have tried these. All staff very friendly. Cute spot and nice atmosphere but small. Food very reasonably priced.

    Absolutely the best breakfast in town! 😍 Eggs benedict with fried halloumi was so delicious. Nice atmosphere and a cute little place!

    The food here is to die for! Such amazing quality breakfast/brunch/lunch choices. The shrooms and eggs with chorizo is a firm fave. Along with the french toast if you have a sweet tooth.

    My boyfriend and I were looking for a late NYD brunch with most places being closed or stop serving breakfast at about 12. Came here in advice of a friend who is from Manchester. When we got there, the queue was massive and out the door and even all the outside tables were full. We got told it would be a 45 minute wait so put our names down and went to shops in the meantime. After some deliberation, we decided both on an iced latte and eggs benedict with bacon and avocado. The table next to us got the french toast and after seeing it we both wished we had ordered that instead. Nevertheless, it was still a good breakfast and would definitely go back next time we are in Manchester. Cute little cafe, small and quite cramped but doesn’t bother me as long as the food as good and added to the atmosphere.

    Welcomed by a lovely young woman working there, who was super sweet, but the blonde women at the till didn’t ooze off friendly vibes, which didn’t feel very welcoming (I take customer service quite seriously). I would suggest someone else taking over the till if that’s her attitude all the time and was not a one off, bad mood day moment. At the end of the day, costumers aren’t only paying for the food, but we’re mostly there to pay for the experience. So imo, workers should be extra careful with their customer service. French toast was okay, not as expected. But wouldn’t go out of my way to have it again. But I do appreciate that it wasn’t sugar (my body doesn’t handle sugar too well). It’s good.

    The food here is amazing and we've never left dissapointed. They do get very busy, especially during weekends, with queues running out the door which just shows how popular this place is. They change their specials quite regularly and we love it when our all time favourite of pulled beef with siracha and poached eggs appear on the menu. Everything is so fresh and tasty, and well priced. Great coffee too. We've probably tried everything on the menu and can't fault this place. No wonder they've gone and opened a second branch on Deansgate!

    We went to the Christmas Markets yesterday & wanted somewhere to have a coffee close but away from the throngs. We chose this cafe bar. Reasonable prices, welcoming atmosphere, just a very pleasant place to stop & spend a while chilling before you venture back into the hectic streets. It was lovely. Say hi to 'Sean the Great' the Kiwi server.

    What a wonderful cafe! We actually visited both sites during our time in Manchester, and both were lovely. Brunch was absolutely delicious - I had the Turkish Eggs (would definitely recommend!) and my partner had Eggs Benedict. The coffee is strong and the staff are friendly. We’ll definitely return next time we are in Manchester!

    After an evening out and overnight stay in Manchester we wanted to have something more than the usual hotel buffet breakfast. So after reading the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor we opted to visit Federal. Lovely fresh coffee, Mushroom/Halloumi/eggs and chorizo for me and a salmon, egg and avocado on sourdough bread were both real winners. Whilst both breakfasts were more than ample portion sizes we had to have a Portuguese tart and another coffee...and they were absolutely outstanding. Service with smile and the upmost attention made our visit even more spectacular. £35 overall and worth every penny. Well done to all the team and if you're in Manchester its must visit destination.
