Yep – this is going to be a post about finding the best eggs in Manchester, or more accurately, the best egg dishes.
Doing eggs right is vital to me, and I’m sure most other IBS sufferers will agree, as it’s one of the high protein, filling foods which we actually can eat (and it’s accepted on a low FODMAP diet). Poached, scrambled, we all have our favourites, but why do restaurants perpetually mess them up? Cold, watery, and usually in tiny quantities, this isn’t the way eggs should be… which is why I’ve sourced the best egg dishes in and around Manchester which tick all the boxes for IBS sufferers and foodies alike.
The best for over-easy eggs
Moose Coffee has become quite the trend-setter in great breakfast combos, offering a plentiful display of American-style fluffy pancakes, huge portions of breakfast waffles and hash browns, all with weird and wonderful titles (“Burrito State of Mind”, anyone?). Their breakfast offering is large and in charge, but their best has to be their Mano Pollo, which is more than just breakfast – it’s a full course dinner! Served on two warm tortillas, with refried beans, two free range over-easy eggs, grated cheddar cheese, fresh sour cream and topped with griddled fresh chicken.
The best for Eggs Florentine
This is a place most known for their interesting cocktails and beautiful a la carte menu, but this hasn’t stopped them optimising on the breakfast trade, offering some yummy takes on greasy spoon favourites. Their finest work is definitely in their Eggs Florentine, though, which is served up with roasted ham or spinach, hollandaise sauce and served on a traditional plump English muffin.
The best for Eggs Benny
Based in the Northern Quarter, this trendy eatery offers everything the heart desires, from burger to shakes to Sunday roasts. This place doesn’t do fancy names or confusing descriptions, it simply is what it is – and that’s good grub. For their best egg offering, go for the Trof Eggs Benedict which is served with a ham hock, hollandaise sauce and served on a warm English muffin.
Teacup and Cakes
The best for Dippy Eggs
Teacup and Cakes does eggs in 6 different ways, serving their eggy combos on yummy low FODMAP favourites such as sourdough and rye bread. For the greatest egg experience of them all, try their Dippy Duck Eggs with asparagus spears or chunky ciabatta bread soldiers.
The best for Scrambled
In the quaint city centre hub of Castlefield, Albert’s Shed is a popular day and nighttime eatery. Their breakfasts vary from full big-daddy plates for your traditional English fry-up, and also serves lighter options such as avocado on toast with bacon bits and a tasty chunky salsa. Their smoked salmon and scrambled egg medley is gorgeous, with the egg scramble light, fluffy and free of any grease, just the way it should be.
