Sunday lunch

Visited here today for Sunday lunch. Food was good, I had a vegetarian roast, so many different foods on one plate. Great value for money...lovely little quirky place.

Have been visiting regularly for a couple of years now. Food is always great, nice decor and atmosphere, so reasonably priced and friendly, smiley staff. The banana cake is to die for! Always my #1 place to eat when I'm in Liverpool.

Popped in recently for a bite to eat and a pot of tea with friends, lovely atmosphere, fast service and the food, as always, was to die for! The lasagne is heavenly and the serving sizes for the cheese on toast and the garlic bread are beyond generous with a full mixed salad on the side! We all left well... More

I'd like to be recommending the Egg Cafe as a good veggie/vegan place to eat in Liverpool but our recent experience stops me doing this. The food we had was awful. We ordered the red dragon pie with rice and salad. It was a very small slice of pie which was mostly mashed potato with a thin layer of bland... More

Found the Egg Cafe by chance when looking for a quick bite to eat in Liverpool and all I can say is WOW!! It is so difficult finding a restaurant that serves anything close to a decent vegetarian meal but the Egg serves fantastic vegetarian meals. If you are willing to climb the three flights of stairs you will not... More

A very casual laid back establishment seating upstairs and many tables with window views out Food pretty good - it's all veggie - service friendly enough and very reasonably priced. Not for the unfit you walk up two flights of stairs to get there and it might be hard to find. Wardens ticket cars outside be wary Paradise for veggies

Great Food, Big Portions, Lovely Cakes and Very Good Prices. There's also a set menu deal which is good value if your hungry. You get to sit at big tables and chat to other folk. One couple advised me to get 2 halves of cake instead of one single portion. Very Good Advice. Yummy.

Went with my mum to have a nice sit down and chat with some food but didn't have enough cash with us. Asked if my mum could order while I ran out to get cash but was told bluntly 'Pay before you eat'. I thought maybe I was not understood properly and asked if it was okay to pay what... More
