Cafes in Liverpool are great for all the family including furry family members! LEAF is a Liverpool favourite on Bold Street, known for it's loose leaf tea and delicious breakfasts. Look for hidden gems like Fodder in the Baltic Triangle and inside Liverpool Cathedral. 


Bars and Nightlife 


Liverpool is renowned for being an incredible night out. It's true, we can't think of anywhere that lives up to the bars and nightlife in Liverpool. We think that we do pretty well for a few day-time cocktails too. For some day time bubbles take a look at Castle Street or the Royal Albert Dock where you can enjoy your drinks with a side of eye-catching architecture. The Baltic Triangle and Cains Brewery village has a boss up-cycled appeal and is an ideal place for day time or early evening bevvies. 

Come night-time Seel Street comes alive. The main strip of night-life leads off to smaller streets like Slater Street, Colquitt St and Concert Square. 


Local Produce in Liverpool


Local produce is at our fingertips, with Wirral and Formby asparagus, Southport shrimps, Knowsley lamb, and Liverpool beer and gin some of the stars of the scene. Many restaurants and cafes are proud to use local produce.

Whilst we’re talking about food, it seems only right to mention the famous local delicary – Scouse! A tasty stew of meat and vegetables, served with crusty bread and beetroot or red cabbage (depending on personal preference and opinion). It’s how the people of Liverpool got their nickname ‘Scousers’, and is on the menu at many cafes and restaurants. 

If that's not enough, we actually have a day every year to celebrate the dish that gave us our name, Global Scouse Day takes place in February every year. If you fancy giving it a try before then, take a look at our 'Where to Try Scouse' blog.
