Brunch, it’s that mouth watering combination of your two favourite meals – fancier than breakfast, but way more exciting than lunch. It generally tends to be served from around 10am, and it’s a perfect opportunity to have a mimosa with your morning coffee, what’s not to love?
So, whether you’re a weekend visitor, a curious citizen or a dirty stop out we’ve got you covered, Liverpool definitely never disappoints with its abundance of independent cafes and restaurants. We’ve made your decision a little easier with our list of favourites.
The Brunch Club
37-41 Duke Street, Liverpool
The name of the venue speaks for itself, let’s face it what other club would you want to be part of?
From morning cocktails to stacked pancakes, the relaxing Brunch Club is the ideal location to kick back and hangout. With hearty breakfast selection available and an array of gins to choose from, brunching never looked so good.
The comfy sofas and low hanging lights add that chilled ambience to the venue, as well as the beautiful foliage that brings the outside in.
6 Old Haymarket, Liverpool, L1 6ER
Brunching is all about a bit of you time, whether that be with friends or a loved one, escape from the everyday grind relax and indulge. Nestled away on Old Haymarket, there is one quaint coffee shop to get your fix.
The quirky Lovelocks is full of character with great helpful staff at hand to help you pick what delectable options they have to offer. The venue is also dog friendly which is a plus if you fancy a bite to eat after that midday walk with your pooch.
offering a great variety on the menu board to suit vegans, veggies and carnivores and cakes simply to die for, Lovelocks is bursting full of hearty freshly made food to brunch away on.
Bloom & Bean
6A Victoria Street, Liverpool, L2 6QE
What better way to brighten up your busy schedule than popping into the simply stunning Bloom & Bean for a spot of brunch with friends?
With its soft pink and décor, floral interior and plush seating, this coffee shop not only serves nutritious Macha Latte’s and ice coffees, but you can also grab yourself some delectable pastries to get your carb and caffeine fix.
Who says you can only brunch at the weekend? Pop in through the week and brunch until your heart is content.
Baby E Coffee & Deli
The Temple, 24 Dale Street, Liverpool, L2 5RL
Liverpool’s vibrate independent business Baby E Coffee on Dale Street brings you brunch right through until late evening – and they have gin bombs, so we really don’t need another reason to be there. The Spanish baked rice with spicy chorizo or bangers and hash are definitely my go to, at this point I’ve pretty much had everything on the menu, so it’s fine to take this as an experts opinion.
With a great selection of all-day brunch to indulge such as The Full Works, Veggie & Vegan Breaky and Fluffy Pancakes, this cosy venue will certainly set you up for the day.
FYI – if gin at 10am isn’t your thing (??), the coffee here is divine, I always opt for the Vietnamese.
They’ve also recently introduced some amazing vegan options!
Tavern and Co
621 Smithdown Road, Liverpool, L15 5AG
In my opinion, finding a place that continuously has a queue every morning for breakfast can only be a good thing, and then you have the opportunity to absolutely rinse the tea and coffee refills as soon you’re sat down.
With a brilliantly different brunch menu you have a choice between traditional English breakfast options, or you can mix things up and go American or Mexican – nachos for breakfast might just sound like the best hangover cure ever. From classic breafast dishes to state side favourites the venue is rated high in the brunch stakes.
Known for having one of the best breakfasts in Liverpool, I can confidently say it’s worth the extra waiting time.
15 Cleveland Square, Liverpool, L1 5BE
I’m a people watcher, and this place is perfect for sitting outside in the sun and just watching the world go by for an hour or two over a coffee and a bite to eat! They have a glorious selection of sandwiches, bagels and flatbreads and they’re continuously creating new amazing cakes daily! Even if you don’t have the time to sit down and eat (although I recommend treating yourself now n’ then), they do still serve everything to go – for those of you in a rush!
The venue is also the perfect brunching spot, located just a short walk from Paradise Street, this quiet little haven gives off European vibes in the summer when sitting outside in the sunshine.
Oh Me Oh My
West Africa House, 25 Water Street, Liverpool, L2 0RG
This is perfect in the summer months sitting on the rooftop having brunch with friends and a gorgeous view of the city! And anywhere that has grilled halloumi on the menu is always a winner in my book. Breakfast here is served until 12 and then everything else is available until 3pm, so it’s perfect for a chilled out breakfast or afternoon tea!
65-67, Bold Street, Liverpool, L1 4EZ
I’m pretty certain at this point everyone is more than aware of Leaf, but it’s always worth a mention. There’s nowhere I love spending a Sunday morning more than here, with a veggie breakfast and a cup of tea. Although it’s generally pretty packed and the seats are crammed together, there’s a gorgeous homely feel about this place that I adore, and obviously so many others in Liverpool feel the same about this place.
East Avenue Bakehouse
112 Bold Street, Liverpool, L1 4HY
Definitely leaning more towards the breakfast side of brunch with this one, but who doesn’t love fresh homemade bread with their bacon, eh? Personally I love a chai latte and bacon with avocado on toast from here, the most basic breakfast known to man but it’s so lovely. Without a doubt a place that deserves more recognition!
