I rung the day before to inform the staff , that I was celebrating my sisters birthday , they were brillant in the phone, but when we arrived on 30/9/19 morning , was told they had no pancakes no waffles no steak etc, we was gutted as this known solely for their waffles and pancakes . The lady didn’t apologise or clearly wasn’t bothered that we left un happy . We went to north cafe - where the staff and food were outstanding!!

Food barely warm, 2 other tables complained in the time I was dining. Service was extremely poor, this was a common theme. Food took a long time to arrive and when it did was luke warm. Wouldn't dine here again

Atmosphere of the place was great, food and drink were of a high standard, only comment we would make was it was quite cold

Ambience was lovely and food good. But service was awful. Waited an hour for food, when it came, it came out at different times and there was no cutlery or condiments. No drinks or explanations offered while we waited. We had a lovely time, but the service ethic was completely absent. (Great value though, they couldn’t even keep record of what we’d ordered).

Family get together. I ordered full english, only luke warm. My husband had vegetarian breakfast which is said was underwhelming. Another ordered poached eggs on toast, eggs overdone, not runny. Overall dissapointed as have been there for lunch which was good so decided to visit again with the family but felt let down.

We visited at lunch time on a Saturday which must have been a busy time to visit as it took at least 15 minutes for anyone to take our order and the food took over 45 minutes to arrive which was a long time considering it was hot sandwiches from the lunch menu. The sandwiches were warm when they arrived but the chips were cold but we didn’t ask for a replacement as the food had already took so long to arrive. The food was average, nothing special. The staff were friendly and apologised for the delay but overall everything was just ok, a little over priced for the quantity and quality of food.

Overall good service and ambiance, reason given 3 stars on food because the chicken basket that I ordered did not taste as good as it used to and there was weird taste on the gravy dip (perhaps they have changed their recipes?).
Will be back again however will not order the chicken basket again, what a shame, it was one of my favourite dishes.

As always since we first stumbled across this place about a year ago I loved it here at the weekend.

I really don't bother leaving reviews for places unless they are great (in my opinion). Lovely welcoming staff, busy nice atmosphere and exceptional food. I really mean that I have loved everything I have tried here. My personal favourite for breakfast is the Texan Skillet its a triumph.

I'll be back soon x

It took 45 minutes for them to bring us our drinks. The food we don't mind waiting for as it's expected, but when it's very hot you'd expect to get your drinks fairly quickly... 45 minutes to make a few Pepsi's is unacceptable!

Reasonable food but very poor service. We were seated on a cramped table by the door when there were larger tables and booths available. When we asked whether we could move to a different table we were told they were reserved for bookings (we had also booked). We waited 30 minutes to be served, while 4 tables that arrived after us were served before we were. After ordering it took 15 minutes to receive a flat white and some tap water.

The Kale Yeah Benny was very nice, however the vegetarian and vegan breakfasts were bland and not worth the £9.50 charged for each.

Overall it was reasonable quality food however we were made to feel invisible by the servers who did not acknowledge our wait and were not friendly!

Food was fantastic, however service was incredible slow 2 days running. 20 mins to have our order taken, an hour to receive food. Despite this, I will be back as the staff are very friendly and the food delicious.

Great food - unfortunately the experience was let down but the service ( we had to wait an hour before any food arrived). If you don’t have anywhere to be/don’t mind waiting though it’s definitely worth a visit.

The cake was fabulous. Loads of choice and huge slices. The service was poor. It’s like they didn’t have enough staff/space to complete drinks orders. Our cake cake straight away and we waited at least 20 minutes for the drinks after (cup of tea and lemonade!). Noticed others around us were in the same boat.

As always delicious food, relaxed surroundings and pleasant service. One of the few places I regularly bother to travel half an hour to enjoy their breakfast. Texas skillet and steak and hash particularly recommended by me 😁

So me being the idiot that I am booked to go to the Northern Quarter but ended up at the one on Deansgate. However, I’ve been to both before and I have to say that my experiences at them have been nothing but amazing. The food is delicious and there is so much to choose from. The atmosphere is relaxed and it’s so easy to have a nice catch up with friends. The staff are friendly and helpful without being overeager. Can’t wait to come back again and hopefully, I’ll come to the right one next time.

I love this place. The food drinks atmosphere and staff are all brilliant.
The only thing that I don’t like and is probably me and my ocd but the water jug and water glasses don’t always look the cleanest. I wipe my glass with a napkin but like I said probably just me.
Overall great place. Food is brilliant and the bloody Mary’s are the best I’ve ever tried.

I've been coming to Home Sweet Home for a long time! Being a sugar fiend, the cake counter is always the highlight for me! They are more than generous with their portions, and the flavours are varied every day, and I'm doing my best to get through all of them!
I can also say their breakfasts, and savoury food is lovely! The chicken and waffles are fantastic, as well as their pancakes, and fry up.
I docked a star on service, because we found ourselves waiting quite a while for the cocktails we ordered, but they were delicious, especially the Ultraviolet. I'd definitely recommend this place!

Awful experience. Choice of gluten free was poor and expensive for what we received. Felt like I was a nuisance and was asked if I was actually allergic or if it was a lifestyle choice. I have celiac disease. The music was like an orchestra tuning up and I couldn’t wait to leave.

Must have been the sunday rush brunch but the food which was bland and tasteless, took ages to come. One party wasn't given both her drink and food till quite a while after the rest. Won't return for weekend brunch

I finally decided to take my family here after coming in so many times by myself. The food was good, it did take 30 mins for the order to be taken and then another 40 mins for the food to arrive. The waitresses were lovely though. The noise was a bit much, the music was too loud, we couldn't really talk to each other and the people sat behind us were loud but it was mostly the kids and you can't stop them so it was fine with me.

Food lovely and cute space but service was so so slow. The guy who seemed to be running the place looked mildly annoyed when ever we asked for food/drinks etc. We were kind of hidden away so that could be why they took so long to take and bring our order but the place wasn’t busy and the guy’s attitude made us feel like we were an inconvenience.
