Review | Brunch at Rosylee
To locals, they’ll know of Rosylee – if you’re not from Manchester, I’ll fill you in on why it’s a hotspot. Come summer, you’ll struggle to ever get a seat outside as it gets the perfect afternoon sun in their chic beer garden. On Mondays they offer 50% off food and when it rains it’s half price prosecco - what more could you want?
I wrote a review earlier in the year which will cover the basics of the venue here. As I always bang on – I love brunch. It’s genuinely my favourite meal of the day and luckily in Manchester you can get it almost all day or at least until 3/4pm. Rosylee isn’t as late a server but you can get it until 2pm which is pretty reasonable really. You can book over the phone or if you’re lazy like me, use the book a table app and you’ll have a table within seconds.
I ordered the full English (surprise, surprise). I rotate this dish with either pancakes or Eggs Benedict but I feel well equipped to compare against other Manchester eateries, having lived here now for a fair few years.
There’s a few things that stand out about Rosylee for me. I love the décor – it’s beautifully quaint and Instagrammable, the staff are a pleasure to be around and can’t do more for you, and for breakfast, the portion sizes are fantastic. Even more so if you’re nursing a hangover. We had some Bloody Marys and Buck Fizz to go alongside – because go big or go home right?
You get a generous helping of everything and the food is delicious. I honestly couldn’t fault one part of the visit, well apart from the fact the minute we stepped outside it started to rain and we could have made the most of the prosecco offer…
