Review: Alabamas, Manchester.

My first experience of Alabamas was walking in on a Saturday mid-morning and promptly walking right back out again because it was absolutely heaving and I knew there wasn’t a chance in hell of getting a table.

We ventured back on a Thursday and were shown to a table right away. I have to say that one of the best things about my business is that it allows me to have brunch on a Thursday!

The eatery was designed to show a different side of American dining (e.g. there is more to American dining that hamburgers and fries).

The atmosphere is excellent, and the layout feels authentic. Most importantly, the welcome was extremely warm. I have to say that the service throughout was excellent and a pleasant change from most eateries in Manchester.

Apparently, many of the furnishings have been imported in from America.

I started with a soya latte and the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict. Both were very good.

Although we were full we couldn’t resist ordering the chocolate and peanut butter pancakes. Again, AMAZING. Some of the best pancakes I’ve had to eat in Manchester.

Smooth peanut butter dolloped on top of fluffy pancakes, with a scoop of Chantilly cream and home-made chocolate sauce. Heaven!!!

I’d definitely recommend this place to anyone. The service was really want stood out to me and was a huge breath of fresh air. The food was very good, although nothing spectacular.
