Best brunch in Liverpool: 14 of the tastiest late morning restaurants

Brunch in Liverpool is alive and well. It’s no longer the early bird who catches the worm, as mid-morning and early afternoon feasts are available for those who prioritise a lie-in over eating pre-10am. Breakfast and lunch have merged to create one of the world’s greatest meals, stealing our hearts with its perfect balance of sweet and savoury offerings that seem to hit the spot no matter the time of day. Brunch is the one time when it’s totally acceptable to wash down your fry up with a bottle of prosecco or tuck into fried chicken and bao buns within moments of rolling out of bed. From smokey American barbecue to brioche rolls and French fare, we’ve rounded up all the candidates vying for the title of best brunch in Liverpool so you can brunch till your heart's content.


More than just small plates and free-flowing prosecco, there is still ample reason to head out for brunch when you’re looking for something a little more refined. Whilst we can always appreciate a good drink deal, we’re equally partial to a meal that won't leave us with a hangover kicking in at 5pm. So we’ve rounded up all of our favourite brunches in Liverpool, in their purest non-alcoholic form. With everything from egg muffins to go, to six-hour shakshuka and blueberry pancakes, there’s a brunch restaurant in Liverpool for every mood and budget. Whilst alcohol can still be added at many of these venues, you won't be judged for sticking to a cold glass of freshly squeezed orange juice instead.

So take your pick from coffee shops that make a decent pancake to the more luxurious rooftop restaurants where you can enjoy the best brunch in Liverpool with a view. Here are all of Liverpool's best restaurants to get your weekend off to an eggscellent start.


Egg and bacon muffin sandwich

What: Wreck is another venture from the brains behind restaurants like Sticky Walnut and Burnt Truffle, and it doesn’t disappoint. The brunch menu here consists of the sort of hearty grub you’d expect from a chef like Gary Usher, and provides a substantial way to kick start your day. Think smoked 'Nduja beans with fried egg and XL breakfast sandwiches, or if you're brave enough go for 'the full Wreck-fast'.

Complete with some seriously stylish interiors, this is a restaurant with all the best brunch options. From a full English with your choice of egg to a Voyagers brioche brunch bun with bacon and sausage. And, if you fancy something a little more health-conscious but just as indulgent, tuck into some chocolate orange overnight oats.

Bold Street Coffee

beans on toast, egg bun, and smoked salmon

With everything from smoked salmon and eggs on toast to maple and bacon pancakes for those with a slightly sweeter tooth, there’s something for everyone at BSC. We’d suggest going for one of the Egg Buoys though, filled with scrambled egg, cheese and a choice of other meat or vegetarian fillings.
