Really informal and friendly place. Would visit again. Very reasonable prices. Great for lunch. Apparently they do good veggie Sunday lunches

Before my long awaited ( many years) trip to Liverpool this past April, I researched the various dining options for my rather small budget. I am a vegetarian and so when the Egg Cafe appeared on my screen I was intrigued to say the least. So I found it on the map and it seemed to be near my hotel... More

Visited the cafe both days this weekend . Fantastic food & great atmosphere ! The vegan Sunday roast was probably the best meal I've ever eaten ! Worth a trip to Liverpool just to go here !

I have been here for breakfasts, lunches, and dinners and have yet to be disappointed. The food is always of high quality and the atmosphere is always warm and comfortable. Perfect for a quick bite to eat.

They have a huge range of gluten free foods. Far more options than most big restaurants, let alone other places their own size. Mains, sides and cake. The food was delicious, plentiful and very reasonably priced. Chilled, relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff. Highly recommended.

Very nice place !!! The staff was so nice and the food tasted amazing, very good music playlist and the staff were singing happy birthday to my friend when they brought the cake with candles to the table which made the moment very special and unforgettable ! All for a very cheap price I will definitely go again !!!

I had read many reviews and I can safely say this cafe surpassed anything I had read. One review said STAFF were unfriendly- this was certainly not the case! They were very helpful, friendly and extremely welcoming. The FOOD was fantastic! Everything was cooked to perfection and with such flavour. I'm happy to say it was the best vegan breakfast... More

Visited recently with my family. Not one member of staff smiled or engaged with us. Quirky place to visit after braving the dark staircase not knowing what to expect. Food was ok. Cakes were nice. Coffee was nice but could have been in a larger cup! I would go again for the vegan options but I just feel that the... More

This is a very quirky vegan/vegetarian place. It looks very hippy style. The food was ok, portion enormous and the bill very reasonable.
