It divides opinion – there are those who love it, those who hate it. As someone who values their time in bed as much as their time in the gym, I’m a fan. It gives me more time in bed before I hit the gym, then instead of one meal, you can have 2 in 1.
Maybe that’s lazy. If it is, I’m all for it.
Especially when it comes with a little spice.
The latest venue to join in the brunch revolution is Revolucion de Cuba – bringing their own twist with Bloody Mary’s, Mojitos, and burritos, Spanish Omelettes and Cubanos as well as a classic breakfast.
Running every weekend and all the way til 2:30pm, I popped in for a little sampler session. You know, for research purposes.
Drinks wise, you have a good selection. As you’d expect, the Bloody Mary is on the menu, and you can always swap out your vodka for gin and enjoy a Red Snapper instead. Try something a little fresher, with the Mojito, or stick with beer, or prosecco.
Of course, tea, coffee and soft drinks are available if you need a gentler introduction to the day.
On the food menu you have a selection of latin themed dishes. My date decided on the Spanish omelette – with chorizo and morcilla sausages, potato, egg and spring onion, all topped with Manchego cheese and served with a generous helping of avocado and sourdough toast.
Maracas and lei optional.
For me, post gym, there was only one option. The Breakfast Burrito. A hefty helping of sausage, chorizo, egg, refried beans, jalapenos, cheese and rice served with slices of bacon.
Filling, and oh so tasty.
As you have a full two hours of bottomless brunch fun to enjoy, there is of course time for you to try more cocktails, or slow down with a brew.
Revolucion de Cuba’s Bottomless Brunch option lasts for two hours, and costs £25. During this time you can have as many drinks from the menu as you like, but as with all bottomless offers, you must finish your last drink before you can order another.
The price puts it on a par with Cottonopolis, but you have 45 minutes longer to enjoy it, and on par with Refinery (so long as you eat from the breakfast menu), which also offers 2 hours brunching time, but offers fewer drink choices.
With so many bottomless brunch options in Manchester, choosing is now more about what suits you better. Longer time to indulge? Best food? Best drink option? All of them do it differently, which means it’s less value for money, more a personal choice.
As for me, I obviously need to try them all. So what’s your best brunch in the city?
