We have our first snowy day in Liverpool of 2024 so we have lined up some of the best places to warm up in and around the city.
It’s freezing outside and forecast to remain cold for most of this week with
So, it’s time to seek out some warm and comforting food and drinks to enjoy – while supporting your local hospitality businesses.
Here are eight of the best to try this week to warm body and soul.
Hot chocolate at the Brunch and Cocktail Club
With its gorgeous botanic theme, the Brunch and Cocktail Club is a little bit of summer in the city – even when it’s freezing cold outside.
They serve up a stunning hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows that will warm you up whatever the weather.
Or why not go for the Moroccan eggs and imagine you are in north Africa rather than chilly Liverpool?
And if you fancy a warming cocktail, we can recommend the Smoked Old Fashioned, made from Woodford Reserve Whiskey, Maple Syrup, Angostura & Plum Bitters served smoked with Bourbon Soaked Oak Chips.
The Brunch and Cocktail Club is in Duke Street. See the full menu and book HERE.
Buy local and beat the chill at MerseyMade Café
MerseyMade’s ethos is to support the local community and its café is no different. It has the most delicious vegan cakes, perfect coffee beans, and freshest ingredients.
And there are plenty of items on the menu to warm you up during the cold snap.
Fancy a warming hot chocolate? You can pick from a choice of Belgian, ruby, white chocolate, or caramel chocolate. If you’d prefer something savoury, then the homemade soup with sourdough is just what you need to keep out the winter chills.
You will find the café inside MerseyMade at Unit 2, Chancery House, 98 Paradise Street, and you can browse some locally produced gift ideas while you keep warm.

Warm up with the log burner at Ryde Liverpool
The log burner and comfy seating makes Ryde one of the best places to warm up and enjoy a morning coffee, indulgent cheese on toast, or bowl of soup during the arctic blast.
This might be a bicycle café with a repair shop onsite, but everyone is welcome and with great cooking and a warm atmosphere you won’t be left in the cold if you’re not on two wheels.
There are soup specials, great coffee, and delicious hot chocolate all on offer to keep you warm as you take in the heat from the log burner. Perfect for a cold winter day.
You’ll find Ryde in the Northern Lights building in the Baltic Quarter.

Warm up at The Watering Can
Need warming up after a brisk winter walk in Greenbank Park? Then the Watering Can is the perfect spot. It’s dog friendly so you can bring your pooch inside for a warm as well.
It has a stellar reputation for Sunday roast, but you can enjoy a warming bowl of Black lentil and vegetable Dhal, spinach, coconut, served with a chapati for £14 – just what you need in this icy weather.
There is also tempting hot chocolate with cream to chase away the cold, and the cake selection is the perfect accompaniment.

Enjoy a bowl of Scouse at Ma Boyle’s
What better way to fight off the winter chill than a bowl of Scouse?
Ma Boyle’s is one of the best spots in the city for enjoying our famous local dish, with a classic recipe of slow cooked British beef with potatoes, carrots, onions and celeriac in rich gravy served with pickled red cabbage, warm bread and butter. You can also enjoy a Scouse pie if you fancy something different, and there is a blind Scouse for vegetarians too, so they don’t have to miss out.

Enjoy a pimped up hot chocolate on Lark Lane
If a really good hot chocolate is the only thing that is going to beat the cold, then Pippins Corner in Lark Lane has some of the best in town.
From the plain and simple, through to white chocolate, Ridiculously Pimped Up featuring marshmallows, cream, caramel, Maltesers and Mars Bar to the Naughty with added Baileys, this really is one of the best selections around.
There is also a host of brunch and breakfast favourites, sausage rolls, hot sandwiches and more.

Enjoy a warming meal at Mowgli
There are few better ways to warm up than feasting on the mouth-watering Mowgli menu. Firm favourites like Himalayan Cheese Toast, Treacle Taramind Fries and Goan Fish Curry will soon fight off the winter chill.
Vegans are also well catered for in Mowgli – we love the Holy Chow.
So, whatever the weather, a visit to either the Bold Street or Castle Street Mowgli is just what you need with the temperatures plummeting outside.
