Birthday Brunch | Pot Kettle Black

4 June 2018 Barton Square, Manchester M3 2BH, UK

It was my birthday not too long ago (I am a May baby and proud!), and to celebrate turning twenty-eight, we went to do one of my favourite things in the world... eat. I am an absolute sucker for brunch, cliche I know, but I love avocado, salmon, poached eggs and most of all mimosas.

I am making it my mission to try every brunch Manchester has to offer, and in this instance, Pot Kettle Black in Barton Arcade was up. 

Now for starters, I have lived around Manchester for most of my life, and I don't know how, but I didn't really know Barton Arcade was there, and so didn't know about Pot Kettle Black until I did a bit of googling to see where I fancied. 

Low and behold, nestled in Barton Arcade is a very photogenic brunch destination! 

If you can't tell from the first picture on this post, I decided to go for Eggs Royale, a flat white and a mimosa, because it was my birthday and I ordered all the drinks. The food was really lovely, if I am being honest, I could have done with a little bit more salmon, but the eggs were cooked beautifully and I really enjoyed it. The coffee was great and the mimosa was potentially the best one I've had yet. 

My main recommendation would be to try one of the brownies, I went for vegan blueberry and honestly it is not only the best vegan brownie I have had, but is up there with the best brownie including dairy options (obviously not better than my boyfriend's which is perfection). 

It was a really lovely way to spend my birthday and I am very glad I now know it's there. 

Have you been? Do you have any other North West brunch recommendations? x
