Take a break in a Liverpool coffee shop

We all love a good cup of coffee in the morning with breakfast, at lunch with a friend, afternoon coffee and cake or a pick me up before a night out - we could basically drink it all day! The great thing about Liverpool is whenever you feel like a bit of a caffeine fix there is always somewhere to go.

Liverpool is bursting at the seams with coffee shops, cafes, tea shops and bakeries that serve up all sorts of blends to help start the day or offer up a seat for an afternoon break. Check out our list of some of the best ones to head to on your trip to the city. 


Bold Street Coffee is a favourite amongst the locals in Liverpool. Housed on, you guessed it, Bold Street, the independent coffee shop serves some of the best coffee and food around with loads of vegan options to boot. It’s also in the perfect spot to stop at after wandering around the Ropewalks area of the city. 


Hidden down Wood Street, Mother Espresso is the perfect place to grab a quiet coffee in all the hustle and bustle of the city. They have an extensive coffee range and a breakfast and brunch menu making it a must for your caffeine fix.

92 Degrees Coffee have a few locations around the city but their venue in The Baltic Triangle boasts its own inhouse roastery to bring you the freshest coffee around. Head into one of their shops for that afternoon break of coffee and cake. 


Coffee & Fandisha is a speciality coffee shop and luncheonette on Brick Street in the Baltic Triangle.
