Early breakfast T2 Manchester?

Early breakfast T2 Manchester?

Travelling through T2 Man in early Sept, early flight. Are there any restaurants /cafés after security which open around 5 am?

Have a longish onward journey, would prefer breakfast pre flight. We need to decide whether we'll have to order in flight meal or starve til late afternoon!

Airport info states that most outlets open to coincide with first departing flights- what does that mean? What time is earliest flight?

Hi Sue, we have same dilemma. I seem to remember that last time we had early flight most of the food outlets were open. I think flights start about 6am.

Everything is open in T1 at that time of the day, so don't see any reason why T2 would be any different.

We always eat breakfast at Brodericks which you will find opposite Boots, they are open very early, as we usually check in around 4:30am.

Hi Sue forgot earlier we usually get a meal deal at Boots for on the plane. 6am breakfast till 6pm dinner is a long wait. Also helps to kill the hunger pangs if you smell other passengers on board meals.

The Escape Lounge T2 opens at 5am, they have continental breakfast with a few hot snacks available,

You can view the menu manchesterairport.co.uk/manweb.nsf/Content/e…

It might be worth considering.
