There are not many eateries in Manchester that manage to successfully explore breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks perfectly. Multi-functioning as the perfect place to natter over iced beetroot lattes, cry into a glass of white or inhale a succulent Sunday roast – Evelyn’s is a one-stop-shop of sublime perfection.
Situated on Tib Street in the Northern Quarter, Evelyn’s is decked from celling to floor with live-and-kicking greenery, wicker chairs, aesthetically pleasing topped tables and an open kitchen/bar situ’. It oozes appeal from every angle and, with bright, natural light pouring in during the day time via wide windows – it is the perfect calm space for every occasion.
Once the sun goes down, the candles and low lights come out, while the kitchen takes centre stage in all its deserved glory. A gorgeous affair whatever the time, however it is mid-morning when you can reap the rewards best.
Matching the interior are innovative menus which pack flavour, urge you to drive out of your comfort zone and share a spoonful with your mates. Expect expertly poached eggs and avo’ on toast for breakfast, alongside nutrient-packed buddha bowls and ricotta/blueberry pancakes.
While brunch/breakfast is paramount, lunch will herald in a new wave of delectable big plates. These delightful morsels include heavenly shrimp & crab burgers, Asian chicken caeser salads and sweet potato hash which urges you to add a helping on confit duck. If you are a fiend for the previously-championed avo/eggs combo, then have no fear – almost the entirety of Evelyn’s breakfast menu extends over lunch service. Always thinking of us lethargic late-starters.
Prefer an extremely intimate candlelit affair? A signature pink peppercorn & yuzu gin and tonic will perfectly help you tackle a mountain of satay chicken, or even the famed whole sea bass if your tummy is rumbling. Veggie, vegan or gluten free? Evelyn’s have you covered with a wide range of offerings, such as cauliflower laska, crispy tofu complimented with pepper dhal, carrot fritters and slow duck and pomegranate salad.
Visually stunning, feel-good food and a warm, friendly atmosphere with staff who go above-and-beyond – Evelyn’s reputation proceeds it, and for good reason too.
