As a food and culture obsessed girl and newbie to Manchester, let me bring you along to explore what the city has to offer! I love finding new places and Manchester has so many excellent restaurants and bars I can’t wait to try. Come with me as I tick off each eatery on my embarrassingly long list on my iPhone notes.

Location: Hampton and Voúis, 31 Princess Street, Manchester
Price: ££
Vibe: Minimalistic, chic, relaxed
Service: 4/5 

If you’re looking for a café which offers a perfect balance of sweet and savoury options, look no further than Hampton and Voúis. The Mediterranean-inspired menu offers a twist on brunch/lunch options, with additions of olive tapenade, sundried tomatoes and feta to your usual poached egg on sourdough toast. For those with a sweet tooth the unique pancake stacks, such as the jammie dodger stack, offers an indulgent treat.

Personally, I think the prices are very reasonable compared to the usual prices these days for aesthetic/insta-worthy spots.

Firstly, what convinced me to queue outside on a Saturday morning was the pastries and cakes I had seen on the Hampton and Voúis Instagram. I can confirm they were 100% worth the wait (I would even wait double the time). This independent café offers some of the best pastries I have ever had, with the pistachio croissant taking the top spot for me. Hampton and Voúis have a delicious range of treats which are levels above your average plain croissant and are all made by local bakers on a rotating basis. I also appreciated how they had dairy, vegan and gluten-free options to cater for all dietary requirements.

Located just off Albert Square on Princess Street, Hampton and Voúis is the perfect aesthetically pleasing brunch spot for a coffee morning date or to catch up with friends. I have visited twice in one month and will definitely be returning!
