I had the Scottish Breakfast from the comprehensive breakfast menu and it was very good but please Koffee Pot make sure it's all served hot. Mine was a range of hot, not so hot and just warm.

Had breakfast twice here over the last few weeks and each time it has been excellent. I patriotically had the Irish breakfast each time and heartily recommend it.

Breakfast. Open from 7am. Vegan and vegetarian options abound. £7 with a cup of filter coffee. The interior is interesting, characterful and pleasant with lots of different eating/seating lay outs. Radio music in background was OK. Friendly, unfussy service. Wifi with code. Evening menus available with house wine at £8 a bottle and various melts and sharing boards. A good... More

Asked friends for a place for breakfast close to my hotel, and this place came up a couple of times. Did the Full English one day, the Irish the next. Both were delicious. Service was quick and friendly. Great place to start the day!

It's a friendly bar with a original decoration. There are many pictures on the wall. The staff is very helpful and answer easy to questions. He is near the northern quarter. In this place, you can find many bars like that.

Excellent Scottish breakfast served with a smile. Busy but service was quick and though the coffee looked strong it wasn't. Highly recommended for a traditional breakfast.

This is my second visit to the Koffee Pot. We came even though they were very busy as they said they could seat us in 15 mins (which they did) even though other cafe's had an hour wait. We had a look at the menu while we waited and as we were seated quickly ordered the veggie breakfast with the... More

Very pleasant place with nice atmosphere and good selection of breakfast/brunch options. Shakshouka was nice and fresh, although the menu didn't mention that the feta cheese was smoked (I don't like smoked cheese and I wish I knew it). I still liked my lunch a lot, minus the cheese. My friend's egg and avocado looked good too. Portions are very... More

I have visited Koffee Pot on a few occasions now and have always left very happy and full. The food is very good, elevated bar / cafe / diner food with high quality ingredients and a more than reasonable price tag. On my latest visit, I had the Wild Mushroom and Truffle Melt for £7 and my husband had the... More

Excellent effort. It surely isn't everyone's cup of tea, as the menu was based on offal but thought and effort had been put into it. Not everything was perfect but I enjoyed it all the same. I have also been here for lunch many times and it's a great place for food and hanging out with mates!

Thank Fwho

The most famous cafe bar in Manchester. We serve great British staples and the best breakfasts, brunch, lunch & dinner in the Northern Quarter. Casual dining at its best. We serve booze from 10am until 11pm, we play BBC 6 music religiously and turn into an amazing bar in the evenings, serving the best and cheapest cocktails and beer you'll find. We also have a great happy hour 4pm-8pm each day which offer 2-4-1 cocktails, £3 pints and free snacks!
