Restaurant Launch – Infamous Diner, Manchester

Being a huge fan of all things American I was super excited about the launch of Infamous Diner. The latest addition to the MAD Ltd venues joining Rosylee and Tusk, to name just a few, Infamous Diner is a 1950’s inspired ‘all American’ diner complete with raspberry pink seating booths, LA neon signs and a silver ceiling. There’s a juke box pumping out songs from the era and serving staff are suitably dressed to jive along to the hits.

In true American style you’ll get free refills on filter coffee which, will be welcomed by the breakfast crew as the doors open at 7am. You can also find an impressive breakfast menu featuring pancake stacks, waffles with maple syrup and steak with eggs. At other times you can choose from hot dogs and burgers, shakes and fries, making sure you wash them down with a cocktail (or three) from their American themed menu. We enjoyed the Strawberry Daiquiris and the Californian Caipirinha although both were very sweet, the menu also features a particularly interesting sounding Maple Manhattan and Salted Caramel Old Fashioned. I’ll be back to give cymbalta online purchase them a go.


Food wise the hot dogs were tasty and are sourced from a charcuterie, from grass fed cattle and natural skinned. The burgers were a bit dry but this was a launch therefore I won’t hold this against them. The peanut butter, banana and jelly sandwich was particularly welcomed and I will certainly be back for more once the initial rush of a new opening dies down.

In conclusion I love the freshness of Infamous Diner. It is a true American style diner and something I haven’t seen grace the City Centre for a long time. It’s a bit out of the way being opposite the entrance to the Arndale Centre car park but it is very close to the new speakeasy Wash House, if you can find the number to book of course, so in good company.

I look forward to many a morning sipping my ‘quaff-ee’ with my pancake stack swaying along to 1950s hits, see you there.
