Map of Halal Cafes in Manchester

Here is a map of the below best halal cafes in Manchester to help your work out where to visit and which cafes are close to where you live/are visiting:

Below, I have split the list into 2 sections. Cafes in Manchester offering all halal options, and Cafes in Manchester offering selected halal options meaning they also serve non-halal meat and likely pork.

PLEASE NOTE: The information in this post is from a mixture of my own personal experiences, email replies from cafes & restaurants and information available online. I have tried to make it correct as possible and try to keep it as up-to-date as possible but I suggest calling restaurants and double-checking the details yourself beforehand if you are very concerned about visiting a restaurant that doesn’t serve all halal meat and does serve pork and/or alcohol. Allah knows my intentions inshallah.

Halal Brunch Places in Manchester

1. Caramello of Didsbury

  • Where is it? Didsbury
  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes
  • Website link

Caramello is the favourite for Muslims in Manchester going for a halal brunch!

A Muslim Mancunian favourite. I have to start this list of the best halal cafes in Manchester with Caramello! Located in Didsbury this small cafe is always a hit for halal breakfast and brunch in Manchester.

You can either choose a sweet option, they do amazing pancakes and French toast. Opt for a halal fry-up in Manchester, or eggs and avocado.

They serve halal sausages and bacon and are fully halal.

Caramello of Didsbury doesn’t take bookings so be prepared to queue and wait on the weekend, but it’s worth it. If I can go during the week I prefer to as it’s less busy.

It’s hard to decide between a pretty avocado and eggs or a halal fry up in Manchester at Caramello!

2. Evelyn’s Cafe

  • Where is it? Northern Quarter, Manchester City Centre
  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes
  • Website link

Evelyn’s is top of my list for a Halal Brunch in Manchester City Centre!

Evelyn’s Cafe is perfect if you are looking for halal brunch in Manchester city centre as it’s right in the Northern Quarter and a cool place to visit. I loved their buttermilk pancakes!

They don’t seem to shout too loud about being halal which is a shame but I emailed the restaurant to confirm,

In March 2023 they said: ‘All of our menus are Halal with no exceptions currently! We don’t serve pork and any pork-based products such as sausages and black pudding (served on our ECB breakfast) are substituted with vegetarian or lamb replacements.’

If not everyone wants brunch, they have a great lunch menu too, and they actually open late until dinner making it one of the halal restaurants in Manchester I recommend.

On that note, if you want a halal Sunday roast in Manchester, they also serve this!

3. La Vie Cafe

  • Where is it? Manchester City Centre
  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes

Another great option for halal brunch in Manchester city centre at La Vie Cafe is located at the end of Deansgate Road close to Selfridges and the Arndale Shopping Centre.

They have a pretty interior, very similar to that of the dessert places on Wilmslow Road with the flowers and gold touches, perfect for a girl’s brunch which is what I went there for.

They also have some outdoor seating available if you’re looking for halal cafes in Manchester with outside seating.

They are fully halal and open all day every day of the week.

You can get some seriously sweet brunch options here like pancakes, waffles, cakes, and pastries, but also savoury croissants, toasts and a fry up too!

We all love a Turkish breakfast, right? If you want the best Turkish breakfast in Manchester, head to the Turkish Sweet Centre in Didsbury.

This is a fairly new cafe opening in early 2023 and it’s just what we needed for authentic Turkish food and sweets.

The Turkish Sweet Centre is a deli selling Baklava and Turkish Delights as you walk in but behind this is their cafe serving classic Turkish breakfasts including a Turkish Breakfast Plate and Menemen.

Of course, they are halal and serve Turkish halal sausages as their meat option.

5. Damo Altrincham

The creamiest egg I’ve tasted at Damo offering halal brunch in Altrincham!

A fairly new restaurant in Altrincham is Damo which is an Italian concept restaurant and Muslim-owned. This features highly in my list of Halal Restaurants in Altrincham guide as they do dinner and lunch but they also have a mouthwatering brunch menu!

I went for their signature croissant with scrambled egg and additional avocado and I’ve honestly not tasted eggs so creamy before and everything about it worked! We also ordered the Italian baked eggs which were delicious and an Italian version of Shakshuka.

Although their brunch menu doesn’t feature much / if any meat, all of the meat they serve is halal and none of their dishes include alcohol. They do serve alcoholic drinks.

This is the perfect place for brunch with friends or for a brunch date as it’s in a nice part of Altrincham which really high quality food and service.

6. Brewch MCR

  • Where is it? Gatley, Cheadle
  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes
  • Website link

A fairly new breakfast and brunch restaurant in Gatley Village, Cheadle. This place has opened and offers some halal brunch competition in Manchester!

All of their options are halal which is nicely noted on their Instagram page and menu. They offer lots of all-day brunch options including a halal full English breakfast which my friends had and said is amazing as well as ‘East meets West’ options and Paninis.

We know it can be hard to find halal steak sometimes and my friends also said that their Black Angus Steak Panini is delicious and shows you can go there for lunch as well as breakfast!

It’s always nice to show a new place some love, especially when they are openly ‘halal’ in their menu and online so give them a visit!

7. Brunchville

  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes
  • Website link

One of the halal cafes in Manchester offering breakfast and brunch with an Asian twist. I had the Brunchpur as shown below and it was really nice to have an Asian breakfast which I hadn’t had in a long time!

They also offer a full halal fry up, sweet pancakes, waffles and french toast and if you’d rather share, they do a great Brunchboard with lots of options for 2-3 people.

For halal cafes in Eccles and West Manchester, Brunchville is a great option. They have lots of seating so perfect for larger groups and have decorated the cafe with Instagram-worthy flowers and decor.

8. Biskits

  • Where is it? Withington
  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes
  • Website link

I know Biskits as one of the brilliant dessert shops in Manchester, but, they are open all day from 10:00 am and offer some great brunch and breakfast options too.

Well, you can go sweet all day at Biskits with their Pancakes and Waffles, or go for the full English halal breakfast in Manchester, or usually my choice, avocado on toast.

They are another one of the Muslim-owned cafes in Manchester with floral decor which I couldn’t stop taking photos of when I went… I do sense a theme here for halal cafes in Manchester with floral designs, but I’m not complaining!

9. My Karak Chai

  • Where is it? Wilmslow Road, Longsight
  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes
  • Website link

I missed out on good masala eggs by just getting a paratha. I know for next time!

I always go to Wilmslow Road aka Curry Mile for Dinner but they are cafes on Wilmslow Road too for breakfast and brunch, and being Wilmslow Road, everything is halal!

My Karak Chai offers a Desi breakfast in Manchester. Their Apna Breakfast is a classic. I went for a Paratha only (with a side of Chai) but I really missed out and would order the Omelette Paratha next time or the Halwa Puri as a few of my friends had!

The cafe is only quite small but good for families and groups to meet in as it’s a casual cafe setting.

10. Chai Latte

  • Where is it? Northern Quarter, Manchester City Centre
  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes
  • Website link

Chai Latte is one of the popular halal cafes in Manchester city centre for Muslims to visit. They say they are the pioneers of Halal Breakfast in Manchester and I do believe they have been one of the longest halal cafes in Manchester around!

Personally, I do love a cute cafe with trendy vibes and Chai Latte offers more of a basic inside seating area so I haven’t been personally but for good value food and a handy location in Manchester city centre, it’s popular for a reason!

11. Tutku Cafe

  • Where is it? Chorlton-cum-Hardy
  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes
  • Website link

Halal Fry up Manchester from Tuktu Cafe

One of the halal cafes in Manchester you can visit with a group because, with their big menu, everyone will find something they like!

Tuktu Cafe is good if you’re looking for a Turkish breakfast or a halal breakfast in Manchester without all the frills.

As well as their Turkish Breakfast, Halal English Breakfast and Big Halal Breakfast they serve eggs, sandwiches, paninis, salads and burgers so they are an all-around good all-day cafe.

I personally find Tuktu a bit too oily for me and the food a bit too basic, but for a classic halal breakfast in a family-friendly environment, it is a good choice.

12. Cedar Bakery

  • Where is it? Just off Wilmslow Road, Rusholme
  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes
  • Website link

Cedar Bakery is a hidden gem tucked just off the busy Wilmslow Road aka Curry Mile.

They are a Halal Lebanese Bakery serving delicious and fresh Arabic breakfasts in Manchester.

Cedar offers an extensive menu with classic Foul, a common Arab breakfast dish, pastries with all the Arab flavours, hummus, omelettes and much more.

I know a group of ladies who go here regularly for weekend brunches so they are used to groups and perfect if you want something different to avocado and eggs, or sweet pancakes!

13. Three Brothers Cafe

  • Where is it? Kingsway near Parrs Wood and Stockport
  • Is all of the meat halal? Yes
  • Website link

For halal brunch in Stockport, check out Three Brothers Cafe which is not too far on Kingsway.

They offer a casual breakfast and lunch setting with options for a full halal English breakfast as well as breakfast with a Desi twist like their Apna Style English Breakfast and Desi Fry Up.

Three Brothers Cafe also offer the usual egg dishes, pancakes and lunch options Samosa’s Kathi Rolls and Masala Fries.

They also serve Bubble Tea which is cool!

Cafes with Halal Food in Manchester

Here are some cafes in Manchester offering halal food in Manchester but not all of the meat is halal. They also serve pork and alcohol.

14. Cocoa Cabana

  • Where is it? Ancoats, Manchester City Centre
  • Is all of the meat halal? No, only the chicken
  • Website link
Halal brunch manchester,  inside Cocoa Cabana Ancoats Cafe

To satisfy a sweet craving, Cocoa Cabana is not only a cafe restaurant but an actual chocolatier!

I went here recently for brunch with a friend. Only their chicken is halal which they confirmed to me via Instagram and again when we ordered. Their menu does not indicate what is halal and what is not.

My friend went for the chicken burger which she liked and I went for vegetarian avocado and eggs.

I love popping into Ancoats in the city, there are so many cool cafes in Ancoats so it’s nice to be able to explore the area and get a halal option if you want, even if it’s not all halal, they do serve pork and alcohol too.

And, it’s just great for some cake and chocolate!

Cocoa Cabana also has a location in Didsbury but I haven’t heard back from them as to whether they offer halal options in Didsbury or not.

15. Juniper

  • Where is it? Hale, Wilmslow & Bramhall
  • Is all of the meat halal? No, selected options only
  • Website link

If you live in South Manchester or are looking for halal food in Hale, Altrincham and Wilmslow way. Juniper with its 3 locations in Hale, Wilmslow and Bramhall is a great option and a favourite of many people who live here.

Juniper is not fully halal, they offer selected halal meats like Turkey bacon, but I like that their menu clearly shows what is halal and what is not as the waiters in my experience are helpful too.

I love the decor and vibe of Juniper and have always had a nice experience in Hale and Wilmslow. It’s a nice place to visit with friends for a girly brunch and offers fresh and healthy food options.

They also have lots of vegetarian and vegan options!

16. Fress Restaurant

  • Where is it? Northern Quarter, Manchester City Centre
  • Is all of the meat halal? No, selected options only
  • Website link

I stumbled upon Fress randomly with some friends last summer. We sat down for a milkshake which they are known for in Manchester and we saw halal signs on their menu.

Fress do bottomless brunch and serves a lot of alcoholic drinks so it is surprising that so much of their menu is halal.

We enjoyed sitting outside Fress on a lovely sunny day though and inside on a weekday afternoon was quiet. I imagine if you came here on the weekend, people might be drinking and being a bit party-like inside but it’s great to have another option for halal brunch in Manchester City Centre by going to Fress!
