Getting up in the morning is always a struggle, and when you wake up in the dark, an exciting, tempting breakfast to look forward can help you defeat that snooze button! Cornflakes just aren’t gonna do the trick.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is why for all you early risers, we’re here to help…here are the best places to pick up breakfast, whether you’re en route to work, looking for a breakfast meeting spot, or simply starting your day of Christmas shopping with an energy boost.
Gino D’Acampo My Coffee and Deli Bar
When Gino isn’t feeding us delicious Italian meals or tempting us with exotic cocktails, he’s making sure we’re set for the day with a hearty breakfast. Introducing Gino’s Deli. An exciting new concept offering breakfast snacks, premium coffees and cakes.
To give us the festive feels, our Barista insisted that we try the Nutella Latte and the beautifully crafted Marocchino, with layers of Nutella, espresso and milk. Best advice we’ve ever had.
Ready for a snack? (Stupid question) Gino’s pastries will melt in your mouth, the freshly baked Croissants are the only thing getting us through these cold December mornings.
For those after a more wholesome breakfast, you’ve got to try the Big Breakfast box: a protein concoction of sausages, bacon, a free range egg, mushrooms and a special baked beans recipe from Gino himself. You’ll never go back to Heniz.
The poached egg, mushroom and bean pot is the perfect way to do breakfast on-the-go, and just look how lovely it looks!
Gino has truly re-invented the breakfast menu, with some exciting new concepts and delicious treats to try- join the queue!
EAT is the ideal breakfast stop-off. With all the food options ready to grab-and-go and the staff ready and waiting to take your order. If it’s time you’re wanting to save, EAT is the one!
The breakfast pots are a great way to get your morning energy boost. We’re a fan of the protein fueled BBQ Beans, Poached Egg and Ham Hock. You get just the right amount to fill you up until lunch, move over Weetabix
Or if you’re on the hunt for a healthier option, there’s always the free-range egg & spinach frittata. For an extra health kick, they have a lovely range of fresh juices, whether it be apple, cucumber & basil, the elderflower cooler, or the berries and beetroot! Cocktails of the breakfast world!
The new Wolf Italian Street Food is the new badboy on the block, serving you forward thinking Italian food, disrupting your tastebuds with their exciting menu. They offer both a fabulous breakfast and lunch menu, perfect to grab-on-the go or if you have time, make a pit stop and take in the stunning contemporary interior.
Early risers are treated to a fine selection of breakfast rolls, our favourite is the Full Breakfast Roll, featuring the dynamic trio: sausage, eggs and bacon. Yu-um. You can also get a freshly made omelette with a range of delicious toppings. We went for mozzarella and avocado…perfect ‘for the Gram’
Who doesn’t want a warm bagel in the morning? The smell of them alone has been known to wake us up from a deep slumber.
The Scrambled Egg & Crispy Bacon Bagel, is in a league of its own. Just thinking about the crispy toasted bagel and hearty filling almost makes us want to go to bed, just so that we can wake-up and order breakfast. Then there’s the Smoked Salmon and Swiss Cheese option which in our opinion is good enough to eat on Christmas morning. If only it was open.
Oh boy, here comes Greggs! The legendary bakery is the perfect breakfast stop off, offering scrumptious pastries and freshly baked treats!
We’re also a fan of the porridge pots, which are are perfect to dive into at your desk!
For you protein lovers, the Bacon Breakfast Baguette is a well-known favourite, and now you can help yourself to the All Day Breakfast Wrap, stuffed with sausage, bacon, a cheese omelette, married up with a tasty tomato relish- all wrapped up into a soft tortilla wrap. Greggs pulled it out the bag yet again!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and here at Manchester Arndale, we take this very seriously, no messing about.
Don’t talk to us until we’ve had our protein pot or our Breakfast Baguette- you have been warned.
