Canadian American brunch heroes Moose Coffee are set to open a new two-storey venue on Piccadilly Approach soon.

The all-day breakfast and brunch spot will join new additions Flock, Northern Soul Grilled Cheese and Bandito’s burrito bar on the busy approach to Piccadilly train station in a glass-fronted venue next to the Piccadilly Tap.

There will be room for 50 covers split across two floors, with space for outside seating for customers to dine in the sunshine (weather permitting).

And as well as offering all their usual favourites, there will also be a larger takeaway menu on offer to cater to the grab-and-go demands of Manchester’s commuters.

The menu is heavily inspired by the founders’ travels in America and Canada, who cite classic New York breakfast spots like Comfort Diner on 45th St and Pershing Deli at the south end of Grand Central Station as key influences.

Alongside their extensive list of Moose Egg Benedicts, mouth-watering menu choices include The Coney Island (a large beef hot dog covered in 12 hours slow-cooked smoked BBQ pulled pork), Sauls Smoked Chicken Cheddar Waffle (oak-smoked shredded chicken on sweet waffles covered in melted cheese) and Moose Rich Grits – which promise diners a true taste of the Mid West, right here in Manchester.

For those who like their brunch extra sweet, there is also a range of pancake stacks which come slathered in everything from your classic maple syrup and bacon to homemade salted caramel and apple or peanut butter and chocolate.

All their ingredients are sourced from North West suppliers wherever possible, with all fruit and veg locally sourced in Manchester from BettaVeg, handmade bread baked daily from The Dutch Bakery in Stockport, and responsibly-farmed meat from The Lake District and Williamsons Family Butchers in Waterloo.

Moose pride themselves on being an ethical and sustainable company and last year started their own foundation to drive social and environmental change. To date, they have raised over £6,000 for charities the Whitechapel Centre, Hideaway Project, Asylum Links and Comic Relief.

The concept originated in Liverpool in 2006 and moved to Manchester in 2013. The new site will be the cafe’s fifth, joining three existing sites in Liverpool and the original Manchester site on York Street.

Personally, we can’t wait.
