I'd been meaning to try out Federal for quite a while before I finally made the trip. I am a big fan of brunching, but then again who isn't? I love poached eggs on everything, and I regularly eat breakfast food for my evening meals. Federal is a little New Zealand/Australian brunch bar nestled in Northern Quarter in Manchester, which does brunch all day, and then cocktails in the evenings. There's no denying that that is a winning combo, so I couldn't wait to try it out.
