Good coffee, bad management

Nice location and good coffee, was appalled by the lack of direction from the management. Huge queue and people left at the till while their coffee got cold and the manager is chatting with employee. Yes, it may have been work related but priorities need to be made. Bit of music may help the sort... read more

While visiting Liverpool with a friend, we stopped here for lunch. There was a special item on the menu, a local stew of sorts, which I ordered. Most enjoyable! I appreciate it when visiting a new place, to be able to sample some of the traditional menu items from there.

I regularly visit here for lunch with my mum and sister and have been doing since the Old Everyman Bistro closed. If you liked the food at the old bistro, you'll love this, I normally go for something pastry with a massive helping from the unlimited salad bar! It's really tasty food and served by friendly & polite staff. If... More

This place is a big canteen-style place, which seems to serve the university staff. Go just before or after the rush and you'll have a huge choice of places to sit. When I went, I had the Scouse. It was of the chunky variety, with meat and vegetable still ijn whole chunks, with a thin gravy. Such a generous portion,... More

I have visited the Piazza Cafe twice before, and each time I have found the service lacking. The first time the girl who served me was quite rude and I felt she just wanted to get rid of me, the second there were two young men working who seemed more interested in discussing their favourite movies than even acknowledging their...

To be found right at the foot of the main stairs to the Cathedral, this cafe is a rightly popular stop for either lunch or tea and a cake. If you are in to eat, you will get plenty of choice, there are daily specials and a serve yourself sald bar, soup, sandwiches, paninis and cakes. All things to all... More

This is the cafe for the Metropolitan Cathedral - it's at the bottom of the cathedral steps with easy access so lots of local people use it as well as cathedral visitors. It's self service and very cheap compared to other places nearby but the food is filling and wholesome. The salads are interesting and apparently change constantly with about... More

Based in the Visitor Centre of the Metropolitan Cathedral this cafe is open 7 days a week from 10 am to 5pm. It is a big bright space with a fast self service counter. The coffee and teas are fairtrade and excellent quality. They do a small range of hot meals each day and also a range of panini, sandwiches,... More
