OVERDONE it on the cheeky Vimtos or just still not got to grips with the mysteries of how a halogen hob works? No worries, The Font Manchester will see you right, with reet tasty food served 11am to 9pm Sunday to Thursday and 11am to 8pm Friday and Saturday.
All-day breakfasts are cooked fresh to order from 11am to 5pm, and include the Big Breakfast – bacon, sausages, eggs, beans, tomato, mushroom, hash brown, fried bread, toast and butter all for just £8.50. Add black pudding for an extra pound.
That should sop up the last of those hangover blues, but there’s plenty more to grab at The Font – deli-stylesandwiches and wrap stars, classic dawgs in subs including the Snoop Doggy Dog(g) topped with juicy short rib beef, and a massive pick of homemade and gourmet burgers well worth getting hold of.
Perfect for Veganuary, the gourmet veggie burger pops a hand-pressed falafel patty into a bun with hummus and pickled red cabbage, and comes served with chips (or curly fries), Kool-aid pickle and coleslaw. For something a bit different, try the vegetarian panko-crusted arancini risotto burger topped with Gorgonzola cheese, sunblushed tomato mayo and watercress. Other meat-free and plant-based treats include the Mexican Superbowl salad, the harissa-roasted butternut squash wrap and the homemade veggie chilli burrito.
The Font is also the place to head for the best selection of mac’n’cheese in town… perhaps even the best selection of mac’n’cheese this side of NYC. Following a classic recipe, the Fleetwood Mac combines Taleggio, Provolone, Parmesan and mature Cheddar, with the Return Of The Mac adding ’Nduja sausage and piquillo peppers and The Notorious M.A.C. adding slow-cooked short rib and gravy.
That short rib pops up again as poutine to slather on your build-your-own loaded fries or nachos – another option worth checking is the chicken, Tokyo katsu style, and this is a great plate for one or as a snack to share if you’re not feeling flush.
Even better, food at The Font is half price all day, all week (except Saturday), all through the month of January. Now that’s an offer you can’t refuse. See the menu here.
