Quirky interior, quirky location, really good food and local locals. Kim by the Sea is located in the Homes for Change complex - a coop run building that embodied the spirit of Hulme from the past (for those who remember it). But it's now grown up, been cleaned up, and the prices are usual for Manchester. The food is really... More

Have passed this plague many times and never been in until recently(although it's only 400yards away ) really warm atmosphere . Great service and the food was top notch . £8 for a Piri chicken burger with hand cooked chips . The portion was terrific . We will go again !!

Always friendly staff , food delicious, nice surroundings. Really recommend the veggie fish&chips ! Only point I would add is that they don't let dogs in, unlike most similar eateries in the surrounding area.

We are regulars at Kim's, usually in the evenings but today we called in for brunch. Eggs Flo Jo and scrambled eggs with salmon were both delicious.

A hidden gem indeed! Kim by the Sea is a lovely place with an interesting look and a lot of details on the walls. A fair warning, the full english breakfast (veggie one) is enough for two people, so you better be hungry :) I recommend their eggsflojo for breakfast or brunch if you aren't quite that hungry. They also... More

Kim By The Sea is one of the quirkiest but loveliest places I have visited in Manchester. Located on a quiet street in Hulme, it would be quite easy to walk by the restaurant/cafe as the advertising isn't over the top or in your face. I have always been really taken by the interesting decor of the venue and its... More

Quirky & independent... I love this place! A MUST visit for anyone with a spare hour or two in the Hulme/ moss side area. Lovely walks nearby at Hulme garden centre too to build up your appetite:) Tip 1 Check out upstairs... Library study style with nice veranda. I think this place is a real gem and ticks a lot...
