The Egg Cafe
After a morning meeting some of the finest creative types Liverpool has to offer at the Artisans event at the Palm House, all the browsing had worked up an appetite.
My mum suggested we tried out the egg cafe, a vegetarian cafe which we had discussed before & which she had been doing a bit of internet research on. Neither of us are vegetarians, however, we both appreciate veggie food and I opt to eat meat free the majority of the time. I have recently discovered there is a term for someone like myself, a 'flexitarian', one who eats meat but prefers vegetarian food as a matter of taste and health!
After a wander down Bold Street, we finally managed to locate the hidden gem just off the bustle of the main street. The purple doorway was a dead giveaway, and we ascended the stairs towards the self confessed 'hide away from meat eaters'.
Located in an old Victorian warehouse building, the Egg cafe has a bohemian and simple feel, with a panoramic view of Liverpool to enjoy.
The relaxed atmosphere is echoed as you queue to order before finding a table and waiting with a little number for your order to be called. The menu consists of a number of vegetarian delights, including specials and a soup of the day.
I opted for the spicy bean burger, a firm favourite of mine on Meat Free Mondays (check out my own recipe here). It was served with a loving dollop of relish and generous portions of a variety of salads.
My mum went for the cheese on toast, which has been hailed as some of the best in Liverpool.
The food is simple, natural and healthy, and perfectly fits with the bohemian relaxed atmosphere. I highly recommend the Egg cafe for any vegetarians, vegans or even meat eaters who fancy something a little simpler and healthier!
