Home Sweet Home Northern Quarter (Manchester)

Even though I have lived in Manchester for 8 years now, I have barely scratched the surface when it comes to eating out. New restaurants keep popping up all around the city and old ones are begging to be tried. Home Sweet Home in the Northern Quarter has been on my list for some time now and after hearing good things from numerous different people, me and Tim decided to give it a go.
I wasn't sure what to expect but I certainly didn't anticipate what I was met with. On first appearances it looks like somewhere you would go to enjoy a slice of cake (I'll come on to that in a second) but in reality Home Sweet Home is quirky café meets American diner. The food comes in extremely generous portions and served typical yankee syle in classic red baskets. Pancakes and waffles adorn the breakfast menu and the milkshakes come in a range of devilish flavours.
Although I am by no means vegetarian, quite often my eyes drift to the veggie selection on a menu. On this occasion I was particularly drawn to the chilli bean burrito *served with cheese, lettuce, fries (inside), chipotle sour cream, guac mayo and pico de gallo*. I can tell you this little Mexican delight was delicious. Tim.....lover of all things meat actually had several bites, you know coz his giant chilli hot dog wasn't enough!!!!
To share we unnecessarily (but totally justifiable) ordered a side of jalapeno mac n cheese. Oh sweet creamy gooey cheesy jesus this was good. I loved the kick that the jalapenos gave it...perfect combination of flavours. And who doesn't love a side dish served in an aluminium cup!
Whilst I wrap this up I will leave you to drool over the amazing cake creations that are on offer for dessert (or to take out if your too full like us). Home Sweet Home are renowned for their incredibly bizarre cakes and take it from me....they taste as good as they look. And yes that is chocolate teeth you see in the picture above!
Have you been to Home Sweet Home?

  4. I'm so desperate to visit Home Sweet Home! I was back in Manchester over the weekend but town was absolutely mobbed and I figured it would be too, so I'm going to wait until I'm down during the week at a less busy time to visit x

  5. It is very, very dangerous that I now live about 3 minutes walk away from Home Sweet Home. I think Harry and I are getting pretty close to being regulars now! We've tried pretty much all of the breakfast menu now... It is so good! Next time you're near, you should tweet me! We could go and get a slice of that cake together!
