Interesting - nice change for non-vegetarians

I visited today with an old friend. The Egg has a lovely independent Bohemian feel and seems to be VERY popular, despite a rather out-of-the-way location. We got to a table just befire the lunchtime crowd arrived. That was some queue!! I'm a meat eater but was very happy with what I had today... read more

Excellent food quality and value, we had the set menu between us. Soup was a huge bowl of cauliflower and coconut, which my friend managed to clean-up, I had the main of Thai sweet chilli with salad, then large slab of tiffin and finished off with tea. £10.50 between us, can't complain. Yes they told us there would've a 25minute... More

Pretty appalling service - no matter how long the queue at the counter gets, the staff remain oblivious and make no effort to speed things up. They act like they're in a social club to chat with their mates rather than in a professional eating-place. A shame, as the one time I had the patience to work my way to... More

We chose - yet again - the Egg Cafe for a special meal out. GREAT ! The usual choices, all freshly prepared right in front of your eyes. I had the spicy bean burger, yummy, even if a bit dry. My partner had the main meal deal and was more than satisfied - disappointed that they run out of his... More

I always feel healthy when I've eaten here. The salad is lovely and atmosphere very relaxed. Nice to go for lunch that is not owned by a big corporation.

We've been coming here for years and years, marvelling at the purple paint, eclectic mix of chairs and the chocolate crunch. Good coffee in big mugs, big portions, nice dressing on the salad but needs a little more salt in the red dragon pie. Nice to see a wide range of customers and always plays good music

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.
