It’s that time of year again!
The dark nights are coming in, the skies are a deeper shade of grey, the leaves are turning an aesthetically pleasing orange, and you’ve already thought “oh I’ll just lash a jumper on” more than once.
’Tis the season for hot drinks to become fashionable, how many takeaway coffee cups have you seen posted on them Instagram stories? So if you’re struggling to find an alternative to Starbucks, we have got you covered.
Scouse Bird Shop – Tarleton Street
Swear down, honest to God, not even messin’… If you didn’t know by now, Scouse Bird has a coffee shop inside… serving locally produced coffees, hot chocolates, and gin. Yes you read that correctly… gin! As well as offering the usual suspects of Pumpkin Spiced and Salted Caramel Lattes, the shop has a massive selection of Hot Chocolates to choose from. You can even buy souvenir tins of your favourite flavour, like an Orange Hot Chocolate that would even make Terry green with envy. So sit in or takeaway in one of the Scousest coffee cups ever.
If you’re in the know you can also order from the secret menu, like the Millionaire’s Hot Chocolate – but shhhh you didn’t hear that from us.
You can check out Scouse Bird Shop here.
Derek’s – Allerton Road
Famous for their massive subs, the New York inspired sandwich shop is doing Autumn the right way. A Pumpkin Spiced Latte topped with loads of cream, sprinkled with cinnamon – and a few biccies in there for good measure. Grab yourself one of these bad boys with one of them big butties, and take a stroll through Sefton Park – snap a pic for the Insta stories and make everyone jealous with this one.

Sass Cafe – Tithebarn Street
So – in terms of flavour – is it strictly Autumn – ok no… but you can’t deny that doesn’t look like a hug in a mug, and let’s be honest, that’s what you want for your autumnal drinks. Lucky Charms, cereal meets coffee. Their signature pink Sass latte is flavoured with a hint of vanilla, garnished with Lucky Charms and a shot of espresso on the side – definitely one to give a go!

LEAF – Bold St, Smithdown Rd, West Kirby
LEAF’s Autumn Fire has been a winner of the Great Taste Award! The spiced black tea achieves its flavour by blending autumnal classics such as cloves, cinnamon, orange, almond and rose blossom. It is a perfect year-round for a boss cuppa – however – when its autumn, this has to be the one to order. You can get a cup of this warming tea in store or you can order a box of their loose leaf online too!

Coffee and Fandisha – Brick Street
So this one is a little bit different, but hear us out… Does anyone ever crave a cold coffee when its cold out… You’ve been walking round, shopping, 70 layers on, and you’re just roasting! So here is a way to cool yourself down and, in a way, warm yourself up. Their Brown Sugar Espresso is poured on top of gently steamed milk over ice. Now here’s where the warming up comes into it – you can add a shot of rum. So there you have it, cool down, and warm your insides… best of both worlds this autumn at Coffee and Fandisha.
