Why you should visit the Tate Liverpool Café this summer
3 years ago
If you’re looking for somewhere to eat that’s got amazing views, outdoor and indoor seating and sources its ingredients from local and sustainable producers then Tate Liverpool’s café is the place.
Down at the Royal Albert Dock, you can choose to grab a table overlooking the water or head inside where you’ll be surrounded by artwork from pop artist, Sir Peter Blake.
It’s family-friendly, high chairs are available on request, and it does a great all-in kids menu deal.
The café at Tate Liverpool makes a perfect place to eat even if you’re not planning to visit the gallery to see an exhibition – but even better if you’re combining the two and making a day of it.
Menus change seasonally so there’s a new one to check out now. Here are 5 things you need to try…
If you’re feeling hungry then this one’s for you: slow-cooked pork belly burger served with pickled slaw, chipotle mayonnaise in a brioche bun served with a side order of skin-on fries.
Recovering from the night before and looking for help with a hangover? You’ll need the bacon (or sausage) and egg brioche bap. The pork is outdoor reared and eggs are free range. Choose from fried, poached or scrambled eggs on your bap.
New for 2021 – milkshakes! Vanilla, strawberry and chocolate are all served with a choice of whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate nibs and the café uses delicious Jude’s ice cream in its milkshakes which is a carbon negative producer.
Don’t worry, the famous scones are still on the menu – and you can always treat yourself to a cream tea deal for just £6.10.
Tate Liverpool produces its own coffee so no wonder the café’s flat white is one of the best in the city. Coffee by Tate’s gender equality project means that 50% of all the coffee used comes from women producers.
If you’re picking up a tea or coffee, you might want to choose yourself a cake to go with it – the peanut butter blondies and the banana & cinnamon loaf should do nicely.
The café at Tate Liverpool is open from 10am to 5.50pm Tuesday – Sunday. Breakfast is served between 10am and 12 noon, cold food is served all day and you can order hot food between 12 noon and 4pm.
