92 Degrees Coffee, Hardman Street

In a building you certainly won't miss and serving coffee you are going to want to come back for, 92 degrees has been a Hardman Street favourite for a while now.

This little independent coffee shop makes good use of the small business scene in Liverpool to bring you fresh bagels, teas, pastries and more from around this amazing place on a daily basis. They also sell a full range of their own coffees in house originating from Brazil, Guatemala, El Salvador and all over South America really. If you happen to enjoy what you have they are even available to order online.

Cow & Co Cafe Cleveland Square

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, but yet so close to the action, Cow & Co Coffee in Cleveland Square is almost a hidden gem to visitors to Liverpool.Unusually, the location wasn't actually founded with just brunch and baristas in mind. Originally, the shop was opened as a unique gift and design shop back in 2009 and only when the owners inserted a coffee machine into the mix did they realise the potential here.

Today the cafe proudly supports local suppliers and serves fantastic coffees, and bagels.  It's not just independent coffees here that shine; you will also find some stunning teas on the menu, including the Turkish apple flavour.

Sunday Brunch at East Avenue Bakehouse, Liverpool

East Avenue Bakehouse Bold Street

A hive of independents and activity, Bold Street is a fantastic place you will take many trips to for eating out and shopping if you come to Liverpool often. Of all the places to enjoy whilst here, East Avenue Bakehouse is one to put on your list.
Baking is their USP here. With amazing freshly baked bread on a daily basis, the smells alone in this place is amazing. Can't handle the gluten? Don't worry, a gluten-free loaf is part of the extensive range available.
