10 places for takeaway breakfast in Liverpool during lockdown
3 years ago
We’ve made it through another lockdown week, and survived the rain, so that’s got to deserve a treat. And because we’re all for starting as you mean to go on, how about takeaway breakfast in Liverpool?
Although everywhere’s closed for sit-ins just now, there’s still plenty of places to grab a takeaway while you’re out on a walk or a cycle, and don’t forget many places deliver too.
Here are 10 places to get yourself set up for the day ahead without having to go near the kitchen …
This little indie gem on Slater Street is open Saturdays and Sundays for takeout. It’s fully vegan and it serves breakfasts right through until 3.30pm if you fancy a lie-in. There’s vegan full English options along with takeaway porridge with maple syrup and berries and an amazing range of sweet or savoury pancakes.
Bean There Coffee Shop
Fancy avo on toast with poached egg and feta for breakfast? Bean There on the corner of Smithdown and Penny Lane is knocking out these little beauties seven days a week, ready for collection, or you could try one of their breakfast bagel sandwiches which are served daily from 8.30am weekdays and 9am weekends.
The Interesting Eating Company
If you want an American feel to breakfast, you can get all your waffle and pancake needs sorted, Thur-Mon from 10am-4pm at The Interesting Eating Company on Allerton Road. Go old school with cinnamon, or lemon and sugar, or all-out with a Biscoff stack, covered in warm Biscoff spread, crumbled Lotus biscuits and white choc.
Bold Street Coffee
Let’s hear it for the buoys! Bold Street Coffee specialise in these gorgeous stacked and packed buoys. There’s bacon, sausage or veggie options and the newest addition to the family … a vegan buoy. If you want more traditional, they do a very decent scrambled egg on toast too with tomato, mushroom and avo – every day from 10am to 4pm.
The Tavern Co
The Tavern on Smithdown is famous and award-winning for its breakfasts so it’s always packed when it’s open, but lockdown doesn’t mean no Tavern brekkie because they’ve shifted to takeaway. They’re open from 9am to 2pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday and you can order for collection through the website, or just get one delivered.
Rough Hand Made
We’re a very European lot here in Liverpool, which is good when it comes to breakfasts because it means we’re absolutely fine to have just pastry (it’s continental, obviously). Rough Hand Made at the Albert Dock is baking up a storm still for takeaways so if you’re down there having a waterfront walk then they’ve got you sorted.
If you’re heading down to Otterspool then Space Coffee on Aigburth Road is a good shout for breakfast, especially as it’s whipping up a full English in a box to fuel you up against the cold. Of course, you could always scale down a bit, they do smaller toasty options and pancakes, but you are treating yourself after all. They’re serving until 4pm.
If you love a bagel, and what’s not to love, then these guys are the experts. Up on Nelson Street, between Chinatown and the Bombed Out Church, The Bagelry is open from 10am to 3pm for all things bagel (and donuts if that’s your thing). Try the bacon stack, the oozy double fried egg, the hash stack or the kimchi mushroom melt.
The Watering Can
This place in Greenbank Park has had big queues of customers (socially distance of course) whenever it’s shifted to takeaway, not just because it’s got a great location but it’s food is top quality too. The chilli tofu & avocado bagel is a perfect veggie option or you can go full-on brekkie feast with a meat or veggie full English to take out, 9am-12pm.
You could make Saturdays a bit more special by heading down to Leaf on Smithdown where, as well as having the coffee machine all fired up and ready, the chefs are getting breakfast burritos and cinnamon toast on the go too. There’s a veggie option to the burrito as well so there’s really no reason not to get one.
