Liverpool’s ‘The Quarter’ is one of those cafe’s/ restaurants that seems to be perfect for every occasion, be it a quick coffee or a nice celebration meal. It has a relaxed and non-pretentious atmosphere, and is light and warm at the same time.
I was a very frequent customer when living in Liverpool, and it is the first place I go to when I’m visiting. The restaurant/cafe is located on a peaceful cobblestone street, Faulkner street, just off Hope Street (another lovely street with The Philharmonic Hall, many restaurants, hotels etc), but is a bit of a walk from the centre of Liverpool. However, if you’re going for a concert at the Philharmonic Hall it’s the perfect place for some food/drink before the show.
The food varies from pasta dishes (try the Chevre..), pizza’s (the garden pizza is great!), salads (nice Caesar salad), daily specials, and many delicious cakes.. The prices are good, pizzas from £5 to £8/pasta dishes from £6 to £9, so a good alternative for a gathering, or a “can’t be bother to cook” night. They also have a lovely breakfast menu, serving great coffees. Though I very rarely book a table, it might be wise to do so on Friday and Saturday nights. It can get a bit packed when there’s a show on. It’s open 8am – 11 pm weekdays, and 10am – 11 pm Saturdays/10.30pm Sundays. If you like the sound of this place and want to check out their menu, have a look at their website.
Hope you like it!
