Liverpool's status as one of the world's biggest ports has led to the city developing a unique personality like nowhere else - and it comes as no surprise that this cultural melting pot has led to a thriving food and drink scene. 

There's an overwhelming amount of exciting Breakfast and Brunch venues and we've rounded up 10 of the best to make sure you begin the day in this vibrant city properly:

Moose Coffee

undefinedLiverpool’s truest execution of Guy Beringer’s Plea is served at Moose Coffee – a decadent eatery inspired by American breakfast culture. Championing classics like pancakes, waffles and mouth-watering French toast stacks, this extensive menu is sure to satisfy every Bruncher’s need.

Moose Coffee’s flagship location is on Dale Street, but it wouldn’t be the most surprising thing in the world if you are greeted at this very popular spot with a wait for a table. However, no need to fret as they have another fantastic location across the city centre in Hope Street, or, if you fancy venturing out a bit you can visit their original location in quaint Crosby.

Love Thy Neighbour

undefinedIf you’re after something a little less decadent without sacrificing any flavour then be sure to check out Love Thy Neighbour located on Liverpool’s foodie haven of Bold Street.

This hip cafe is indebted to making sure everyone has the chance to try their lovely, healthy creations and have one of the most extensive vegan and veggie Brunch menus, as well as catering to those with gluten and nut intolerances.

Castle Street Townhouse

undefinedThe sophisticated Castle Street Townhouse is set in the heart of Liverpool’s commercial district and boasts a lovely terraced area overlooking the bustling streets.

Brunchers can enjoy a special Townhouse version of a Full English or a range of Townhouse Favourite if you’re looking for something a little bit different including fried eggs, chorizo and straw fries. Why not add some sparkle to your Brunch with a glass of Prosecco?

The Quarter

undefinedSet on the beautiful cobbled streets of Faulkner Street in Liverpool’s quaint Georgian Quarter, this stylish eatery features perfect executions of Bruncher favourites including one of the finest veggie breakfasts in the city.

If the weather is permitting, try and get an outdoor seat and enjoy fantastic views of the nearby Anglican Cathedral.

Lucha Libre

undefinedTucked away just off Liverpool's thriving Bold Street, Lucha Libre is a laidback cantina serving hearty Brunch dishes infused with Mexican spirit and flavour.

It’d be easy to pass this unassuming café, but it’s quickly gained a reputation amongst locals for its amazing Mexican food (much of which is actually imported from Mexico, along with locally-sourced produce). With an eye on the streets of Guadalajara they have brought an eccentric and exciting menu. 

Lock and Key

undefinedSet in a prime location on Duke Street, this boutique hotel is a trendy place to kickstart your day and Brunchers can enjoy a range of treats from their Brunch menu including the very Instagrammable eggs and avocado.

Wash it all down with a delicious coffee, which you really must try – its absolutely amazing from here!

LEAF

undefinedLEAF specialise in colourful and nutritious food for the soul. While the menu is geared towards more health-conscious eaters – granola with blueberry compote, cinnamon and toasted almond porridge, eggs on toast with crispy kale and harissa oil, along with extensive vegan and veggie options – they also offer a sizeable Full English and other, more ‘meaty’ dishes.

A tea from their extensive menu provides the perfect accompaniment to your healthy morning to begin your busy day with a detox.

East Avenue Bakehouse

undefinedIn a common theme of this list, East Avenue Bakehouse is again set on buzzing Bold Street. Lovingly home baked goods with a modern British feel, this is the perfect spot for comforting homely food.

East Avenue Bakehouse have a DIY approach to their menu – they bake their own bread, import exotic wine and rely on seasonal, fresh produce for a truly independent way of doing things.

Be sure to try their Bold Street Brunch – an ultimate selection featuring everything a Bruncher craves including a poached egg, bacon, local sausage, and for a sweet finish some mini pastries, natural yoghurt and homemade granola pot. 

Ryde Liverpool

undefinedSet in the thriving Cain’s brewery in the Baltic Triangle, Ryde Liverpool is a hipster’s dream pairing together a bicycle shop with a delicious Breakfast and Brunch menu.

Combining a passion for great coffee, food and bikes under one roof, Ryde serve freshly prepared food all day with a range of Breakfast options, as well as cakes from a local baker and a coffee to suit any occasion.

Be sure to try the Mexican Eggs that features delicious avocado mash!

Hilton Liverpool

If you don’t get time in the morning to indulge in a hearty Brunch then fear not as Hilton Liverpool have relaunched their Late Late Brunch where you can enjoy Bottomless Beer or Prosecco with unlimited Pizza, available from 6pm on Friday – the perfect way to indulge.
