I made a trip here not long back when I was in Liverpool for the day. After eventually finding it which was a struggle as it was my first time in Liverpool, I couldn't wait to get inside & eat ALL the food.

Menu was pretty non existence and the food was not great. Ended up going somewhere after to eat properly. The cafe itself is cute and good concept just need to be a better representation of veggie and vegan food

I will start with the great staff. On every occasion I have been the staff have always been friendly, pleasant and caring of customers, they're not staff who are working because "they have to", they spend time with you having a chat while getting drinks prepared and recommending dishes which in my opinion the staff are some of the biggest...

Don't be put off by the outside of The Egg Cafe or the many stairs you have to climb. It really is worth it. Sadly not accessible for disabled or elderly people. Delicious home-cooked food at affordable prices. Our non- veggie friends loved the nut roast and my vegan hubby has lots of choice with no worries. I love meat... More

Staff is amazing, atmosphere is amazing, food is very nice (could improve on changing the menu now and then for us who goes there often).

We stumbled upon this little gem of a cafe on a trip to Liverpool. My boyfriend and I decided to stop for lunch. It is situated on the top floor of a building. It is split onto 2 levels with the top having a mezzanine. There are numerous sized tables and was busy when we went in at 2pm on... More

I like coming to The Egg as you know what you're getting - home cooked food, decent prices and quick service. I like the vegan and veggie options - and recommend the spicy bean burger and the choc crunch cake. So the toilets could be updated, the menu never changes aside from specials, and the door is still weirdly narrow... More

Your menu has not changes for years! Your toilets are still dirty and need a good clean and a lick of paint! Every time I come in here it's very busy so they must be doing something right .. Me thinks it's because it's the only veggie/vegan place in Liverpool opened long hours every day. Very busy equals making lots... More
