Sick of getting ripped off in Starbucks? (Have you SEEN the price of Pumpkin Spice Lattes this year?!) Fear not, Liverpool and the surrounding area is home to tonnes of gorgeous independent coffee shops, offering perfect havens for those moments you want to sit back and relax with a cuppa. We’ve shortlisted five of the best spots in Liverpool for some freshly brewed beans. Do you agree with our list? If you’ve got any additions, let us know!
1. Moose Coffee
The Moose Coffee empire is booming. The popular chain opened back in 2006 and now has three venues in Liverpool, one in Manchester and another soon to open. With the rise in popularity of an all-day brunch, it’s not difficult to see why. Their coffee menu, and indeed their entire menu, really is something to behold. We recommend trying their Moose blend espresso coffee, which, as with all of their coffees, is prepared from ethically sourced Arabica beans. Don’t want to sit in? Don’t worry – their cute Moose-brand cups are good to go.
2. Lovelocks Coffee
Lovelocks is an awesome independent coffee shop situated on Old Maymarket that just radiates personality. Its quirky interior is a mixture of traditional and bohemian styles, with string lighting, hanging plants and vintage furniture offering a quirky hangout for coffee-lovers. A wide menu provides plenty of options for those with special dietary requirements, so it’s a good pick to take your vegan and gluten-free friends to. We recommend pairing their overnight oats with a flat white to go, giving you the ultimate early morning boost.
3. Bold Street Coffee
Award-winning Bold Street Coffee is a Liverpool institution, and has become the go-to destination in the city-centre for coffee lovers. It does get busy, but the wait for a table is definitely worth it. Their signature taste is down to their stunning La Marzocco FB80 coffee machine, hand-made to order in Florence, and they use carefully sourced beans. With breakfast and lunch served until 4pm, there’s no need to rush if you’re having a lazy day. Not sure what to order? You can’t go wrong with a flat white and a bacon sarnie. Incredible.
Chain coffee shop Rubens has six shops across the North West, and are a firm favourite for their artisan coffees and locally-roasted beans. The Albert Dock branch is the most scenic, and is the perfect choice for a Sunday morning brew on a clear day. We’d recommend going for the Eggs Benedict with a flat white, finished off with a slice of cake. (Salted caramel brownies are a particular favourite of ours…) It does get quite busy on the Docks, so try and get there early to avoid disappointment.
5. Community SOUL
Community SOUL is a community hub with a lot of soul, run by a team of trustees and volunteers. With activities to engage the community such as a chess club, craft workshops, knitting and open mic events, the coffee shop has brought a big heart to Wallasey. If you’re sick of chain coffee shops with no personality, Community SOUL could be the escape you need. With plenty of vegan and GF options, we’re certain you’ll find something you love on the menu. Coffee-wise, you can’t go wrong with a mocha.
