In this quirky little Northern Quarter space, big bold flavours rule, and global influences pair with the searing heat of the Inka charcoal oven. Savouries on the brunch menu (served until 5pm) offer a wealth of intriguing sounding dishes such as shakshuka (£9.30), za'atar mushrooms with spelt flatbread (£9) and tandoori mackerel with pea halloumi fritter and a poached egg (£9.90.)

Sweeter ways to start the day include buttermilk pancakes with honeycomb butter and macerated berries (£10.90) and bircher overnight oats with shredded apple, seasonal fruit, cacao granola and grains(£4.90.)

Lunches extend the global theme and the dinner menu is similar with more generous portions. Fish and chips (£13) comes with ginger beer tempura and chilli lime salted chips while and the ECB cheese burger (£9.90) comes with kimchi and house slaw.

Evelyn's does healthy well too with a cracking superfood bowl packed with avo, tomato, cucumber, radish, beets, turmeric soy yoghurt, kale hummus, charred broccoli, quinoa, spinach, grapefruit and seeds (£12.90) along with healthy shots and smoothies.

Brunch on Sundays ends at 3pm to make way for Evelyn's popular Sunday roasts menu. Pick from mustard-rubbed beef sirloin (£16), leg of lamb with Moroccan marinade (£15), harissa buttermilk free range chicken (£15) or the vegan roasted cauliflower with laksa gravy (£13) all served with seasonal root veg, gravy and Yorkshire pudding.

Evelyn's also offers a comprehensive drinks menu of cocktails, mocktails, soft drinks, wines, beer and hot beverages.
