Evelyn’s Cafe Bar, Manchester

Soooo… I might not be the most organised of travel bloggers (for that, you might want to check Silverspoon London!).

To be completely honest, a large part of my travel plans is always dedicated to ‘wandering around’ and ‘exploring the tiny streets’.

But one thing I always, always make extensive research on is restaurants.

And after a looooot of time on Pinterest, I stumbled upon Evelyn’s and I knew we had to go.

Evelyn’s is a small but perfectly formed café in the heart of Manchester’s hipster-dreamland Northern Quarter.

Utterly flooded with light, it’s an Instagrammer’s paradise!

Complete with a plant hanging wall…

… copper (or should I say rose gold?) salt & pepper shakers…

There’s obviously an extensive menu of smoothies and other green juices available!

But we started things off with some ‘fancy’ water (much needed after a few too many cocktails at Dusk til Pawn…)

Orange juice for him, grapefruit for me.

Just what the doctor ordered!

And a couple of croissants while waiting for the rest of the food to be ready.

Not sure how the proverbial doctor would feel about that…

But then again, the croissants were so light, fluffy and buttery all at once that I don’t really care!

Shakshuka.

Aheavenly Middle Eastern classic of eggs poached in spicy tomato sauce with harissa and fresh herbs.

And plenty of toasted sourdough bread to mop it all up!

Fried Korean chicken roll.

A.k.a. the best egg sandwich I have ever experienced.

But then topping something good with some spicy fried chicken is a sure-fire way to make it even better, isn’t it?

^The Money Shot^

Unfortunately, they were not serving their dessert menu as the time we visited, so no Chocolate tart with cherries, Yuzu posset or Matcha crème brulée this time around.

I think that truly justifies the need for me to visit again some time soon.

The only question is, will you beat me to it?

 

Book a table (!! #godblessEvelyns) and drool over the menu on Evelyn’s website

(make sure you tag me @sndguerin in all your Insta pics when you go!!)
