The best places for breakfast in Liverpool

4 weeks ago

If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. Read Confidential Guides’ lowdown on Liverpool’s best spots for sweet pancake stacks, sausage butties and some Full English contenders that really up the game in terms of quality. When it comes to brekkie, these places are winners. To these worthy eateries, we bestow the golden egg cup.

Discover European influences at Delifonseca Dockside (and gorge on their gorgeous breakfast frittata) and meat-free mornings at The Egg, whose vegan fry ups are some of Liverpool’s most-loved.

Big beasts like Voyagers and Hawksmoor Liverpool take sourcing to the next level. Shreddies in your pyjamas is no comparison to Hawksmoor’s breakfast for two with standouts being the smoked bacon chop and the trotter baked beans for porky pizzaz.

You’ll find buzzing city food halls, cool coffee shops and suburban calm on our curated list of breakfast loveliness. Make plans to live well and eat well. It all starts with breakfast.
