I was shocked to see how busy this was on a Monday morning for brunch, it was almost full when we arrived. When we sat down and looked at the menu and watched plate after plate of delicious and fresh looking food pass us, we then understood why. My boyfriend described his coffee as the best coffee he was ever... More

Came with my cousins for brunch. It was ok so sit outside under the heaters and the staff did have plenty of blankets on offer. Overall it would be so easy to make some of the items vegan. I have avocado on toast minus the feta and ham. Although was charged the same price as anyone having the full meal... More

This must be one of the best brunch places I've ever been to. We went on a Saturday morning (without booking), and were lucky to get a table. The service was quite slow (the place was packed) but despite this the food was fantastic when it arrived. They offer a wide range of food from the heathy to the downright... More

Loved this place over the years, changes in the menus and design. Unfortunately I went with my husband and son last week and we were all unimpressed. I ordered the breakfast, the eggs had a burnt bottom but too runny on top. Sausage were lukewarm, bacon like cardboard and tomatoes fell too pieces. I would of complained but I couldn't... More

Highly recommend this place - I got the dippy eggs which were baked in a tomatoe based pot served with Avocado and sour dough bread. My husband opted for the veggie breakfast and was not disappointed. The food was greta, very busy atmopshere and it was really nicely decorated

Everything on the menu sounded amazing, and when my food arrived (after much traumatic decision making) it was divine. I had the haddock florentine and it was great, my friends who had the mushrooms absolutely raved about them! The coffee was really tasty, and the service was lovely- really friendly staff. We sat outside and the blankets and heaters kept... More

Stopped in for a brunch on a Monday. Staff were friendly and attentive to us. I was offered a drink while I waited for my partner to join me. The food was delicious. I had the haddock floretine and my other half had the light breakfast. He doesn't eat eggs and it was no problem to substitute it for something... More

This is a lovely little place with a good menu and the food is always amazing. The service on this occasion was a bit slow although the staff were really friendly. Great for brunch, the cheese toasties are perhaps slightly disappointing compared to the rest of the menu, but the Jammy Dodger milkshake is a proper treat!

Visited with family for brunch on Friday. The choice is excellent and portions large, some of the staff are lovely some are a little grumpy. The food is very good, definitely worth a visit.

We went for a brunch at Thyme out. It is a nice place with a very friendly staff. It is a reasonably priced brunch place in West Didsbury. Apple and caramel cake was delicious.
