Best Breakfast at Manchester Piccadilly
For our money, the best breakfast at Manchester Piccadilly can be found at the simply marvelous Home Sweet Home, a hip little cafe in the heart of the Northern Quarter. Particular favourites include their mouthwatering selection of Eggs Benedict variations, a steak and egg hash that is simply to-die-for and, if you really want to throw the diet out of the window, fried chicken and waffles. Their coffee is excellent too.
Home Sweet Home is around a 12 minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly Station.

Quick drinks near Manchester Piccadilly
We asked our local expert, Ryan Magee to give us his thoughts on the best watering hole near Manchester Piccadilly.
In my opinion, the best venue for quick drinks near Manchester Piccadilly is a little place I’ve been visiting, on and off, for years: The Whiskey Jar. Now of course, their whiskey (and ‘whisky’, if you know the difference!) selection is on-point, but there is far more to this place than finely-crafted single malts; they also offer some of Manchester’s finest cocktails. My particular favourite is the Whiskey Jar G & T, a gin and tonic with a spritz of Laphroaig single malt, angostura bitters and a dash of peach brandy. Sublime.
The Whisky Jar is 7 minutes stumbling distance from Manchester Piccadilly station.
