Last minute lunch arrangements while shopping in town with members of the family who suggested Cafe Tabac in Liverpool City Centre. A short walk up Bold Street, the cafe has a friendly atmosphere, low lit with ambient lighting and chilled vibe. Menu offers all the usual favourites and I opted for the small all-day breakfast for £4.60. Served quickly, and... More

This is my go-to place for a nice, quiet drink in Liverpool. It's so welcoming and relaxing, the prices are very reasonable and the guys on the bar are always really friendly. I love the music and the dimmed lighting which make it somewhere you can stay for hours and hours and it's the perfect place for a casual drinks... More

Visited here with my classmates as an end of term breakfast celebration. I ordered a latte and jam on toast. The food was served quickly and was incredibly cheap. I'm not going to lie but the toast was the BEST toast I have ever eaten. I would go back in a blink. They do 10% student discount as well, you... More

Went here on the weekend for breakfast. Once again, service was great - staff are so friendly! Great atmosphere, works well as a place to visit by day OR night, it's a very versatile spot. Food is exceptional. Although we had a breakfast (which was delicious) just seeing what others had ordered created definite food envy! Will have to go... More

I ordered the full English. The breakfast... More

Went here for a (late) breakfast and was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. the full English was good value and the sausages were well cooked (too many places seem not to bother crisping the skin!) The cafe itself is nicely decorated and plays great music. The front door doesn't close properly though so don't sit too close... More

My boyfriend and I spent the best part of 5 hours sat here on a Sunday relaxing with breakfast after a night out. Love the dim lighting, candles on the tables throughout the day - don't change this please! Food is good and the staff really nice. Am looking forward to re-visiting here to use the cinema type room they... More

I used to go to Cafe Tabac quite freqently when I worked in Liverpool, but that was more than 10 years ago. I don't like the 1970s design theme; big geometric pattern wall paper for example. Irony rapidly becomes very wearing, and I liked the old shambolic boho feel of the place. We sat at the front. The door didn't... More
