We don’t know about you, but we’re fuelled by a love of Liverpool – and a supply of delicious coffee! So it’s a good job we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to city centre coffee shops that know how to serve up a generous cup of the wonder stuff.
Here are 10 of our fave coffee shops in Liverpool City Centre.
Who hasn’t got time for a coffee down at the Albert Dock especially with some serious coffee bean credentials on offer! Named after the Brazilian Peaberry Bean which produces a single coffee seed, offering fuller flavour, this place is what speciality coffee is all about.
Not only that, but there’s a real treat of a menu, with dishes including Cambodia-inspired Pang Sandwich with chilli and cider marinated pork steak topped with pickled cucumber and carrots, tomato and chilli mayo on Vietnamese bread, with a side of potato lattice.
This stunning Industrial-style deli serves up phenomenally good coffee along with a superb eat-in or takeout menu including homemade banana bread with yogurt, toasted hazelnuts and goji berries – for the perfect, guilt-free pick-me-up!
Treat yourself to a cup of in-house blend Jailbreak Red – a taste of milk chocolate, black grape & cocoa, which offers sweetness, balance and clarity. And who doesn’t deserve a big old cup of that?
If you like your coffee with a side-serving of super cuteness – look no further! Not only a great cup of coffee made with 100% Arabica beans, but it’s locally roasted and freshly ground in-house at Lovelocks every day.
Start your morning with a Lovelocks coffee and breakfast of porridge and granola with caramelised pecans, or order with one of their show-stopping, homemade cakes and we promise your day is made! And, if you’ve got a soft-spot for supporting local business with gorgeous-looking merch, you’re going to love the sippy cups, t-shirts and pins!

This multi award-winning caffeine haunt makes local history as an icon of city centre coffee culture, and one of Liverpool’s most loved coffee shops.
You’ll always overhear a great conversation or two over a Cortado, and with great events like Record Store Day, and a menu that doesn’t mess around with dishes including coffee-braised beef featherblade with crispy polenta and blistered vine tomato, there’s every reason to call into the famous Bold Street location or Castle Street Coffee – now served from Santa Maluco!
The Root motto is: Life is too short for bad coffee. And we agree, which is why you’ll find an ever-changing coffee and food menu – including a great reputation for tasty homemade bakes including vegan and gluten-free treats like the sensational Tahini and caramel cookies.
You can choose from speciality coffee sourced globally here, with bean-brewing barristers who approach the roast with the discerning palette of any self-respecting mixologist -conjuring up recipes like the Dirty Chai by adding a shot of espresso to Roots signature chai latte!
This cosy neighbourhood café is a real home-comfort find, with a kitchen offering heart-warming munch like the brilliantly named One Hander of herb aioli, sausage patty with brie and fried egg on a muffin, alongside the absolute indulgence of pear, cider, and cinnamon doughnuts among a delightfully delicious counter.

This bicycle cafe creates a space where stopping off for a great cup of coffee meets a passion for cycling, and with a fully-equipped workshop where bicycles are repaired or even built, Ryde is a huge hit with Liverpool’s cycling community – and everyone who loves a great coffee shop!
Serving New Zealand Allpress Redchurch blend offering a sweet and syrupy body, the Ryde menu goes the extra mile with oven-baked dishes like Mac ’n’ cheese with chorizo, alongside a range of naan pizzas with toppings like mango chutney and feta, and whipped cream, banana and toffee sauces waffles.

Regular events feature live music, drama and poetry, and a free space for up-and-coming artists to display work each month.
The name 92 Degrees comes from the ideal temperature for the perfect espresso extraction at their impressive in-house roastery, and you can subscribe for home-brewing with blends including California Calling and Brazil’s Yellow Bourbon.
A speciality coffee shop and luncheonette inspired by a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony where freshly brewed coffee is served alongside popcorn and other bits and pieces, this superb space is decorated by exterior artwork by Paul Curtis and features an interior Yellow Wall where local creatives display and exhibit unique pieces of artwork.
