A family-run deli in West Didsbury is serving a special cost of living breakfast menu to help its customers struggling to make their paychecks last.

The Boulevard Deli is a little gem of a cafe tucked away in the middle of a newly built housing estate. Beloved by locals, it’s something of a word-of-mouth spot – as if you don’t happen to wander past (and you probably wouldn’t) the chances are you’d never stumble across it.

Luckily, we walked by this week – and so we’re here to spread the good news about the cosy little spot and its awesome 8am breakfast club, where you can get your fill of brews and barms for under £3.

Running from 8am to 8.59am daily, choices available on the breakfast menu include egg barms, bacon barms and sausage barms, with prices starting from £2.

Other options available on the deal include a steaming hot portion of hash browns for £1.50, a brew or coffee for £2, and a combo deal with tea or coffee and a hash brown for £2.50. You can also add a hash brown to any barm for 50p.


Available for takeaway and eating in, the deal has been designed to help locals struggling to make ends meet as the cost of living crisis continues to drag on.

Aside from breakfast dishes, Boulevard Deli also serves up a wide range of salads, alongside burgers, pizzas, light bites, omelettes and hot sandwiches.


Menu highlights include the hot carvery barmcakes with sauteed onions, potatoes and gravy, the minute steak barm and roast pork loin with a choice of apple or stuffing.
