Since opening in the NQ in 2014, Federal have been continuously serving up their famous NZ-style eggs, coffees, loose leaf teas, beers, cocktails and loads more and now owners Claudio and Emily have expanded their offering with a new site on Deansgate.

In a light, airy space, close to the business hub of Spinningfields, Claudio and Emily have designed an interior perfect for brunching, lunching, meeting and working, with a fresh, varied menu to match.

With Brunch dishes such as Smashed Avocado & Poached Eggs with Bacon (£8.50), Steak & Eggs (£14.00) and the phenomenal Halloumi & Shrooms (£8.00) available until 6pm every day – you can’t go wrong.

You’ll also find a packed menu of sandwiches and bagels, as well as coffees, teas, juices, beers and cocktails on offer – offering pretty much something for everyone.

At 35 covers, including a couple of window perches, the new site instantly tells you that it’s Federal – seamlessly transporting that relaxed, laid back charm from the Northern Quarter venue, right across the city.

Open from 7am every weekday and 8am on weekends, Federal Deansgate is now open.
