Where to get the best coffee in Liverpool

Liverpool is well known as a social and business hub for young professionals, and perhaps even better known for its wide selection of cafés and coffee shops. Whether you’re looking for an informal setting for a client meeting, or simply relaxing with friends, we’ve compiled this handy guide on where to get the best coffee in Liverpool:

Bold Street Coffee

Situated at number 89 Bold Street, Bold Street Coffee is one of the most famous coffee houses in Liverpool. From the moment its doors open in the morning, the atmosphere is bubbly, lively and welcoming. Unlike many chain coffee shops, Bold Street Coffee has a unique, ‘home grown’ quality. The baristas are masters of their art and clearly passionate about making the perfect cup of coffee.

 A great choice for breakfast, the menu includes classics like bacon butties and scrambled eggs on toast. There’s also a special ‘filter menu’ featuring filter coffees such as Hasbean Ethiopia and Hasbean El Salvador, which change on a weekly basis.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
