I sought out Egg on the recommendation of a friend. If I am honest I may not have gone in otherwise as it looks very rundown and scruffy from outside. It certainly wouldn't suit everyone but I enjoyed the studenty atmosphere inside. I called mid morning so had the full vegetarian breakfast which came with a mug of coffee. It... More

While I am not veggie I have always enjoyed the home cooked selection on offer at the egg. Enjoy something different and found the egg to fit the bill. It's not somewhere you would stumble across but hidden in a side street off Bold Street not far from Central Station although it is up a few flights of stairs. It... More

We headed to the Egg Cafe having seen great reviews. When we got there there was slight confusion as the outside looked like a 70s squat. However the interior was quirky and homely with paintings on the wall and full of people in groups and couples sharing great food. We had the Sunday vegan roast (is a nut roast with... More

From the purple doorway, up the twisting stairs to the roomy dining area on the top floor everyone in our party was agog with anticipation. And we were not disappointed! 11 persons ranging from a 5yr old to great grandma of 75 all enjoyed their lunches immensely, each well-satisfied with their choice from the extensive & varied menu. The restaurant... More

I eat here quite regularly and have never been disappointed. The food is very good and the portions are huge ! The food is always fresh and I think it is probably the best vegan/vegetarian restaurant I have been to. The atmosphere is always relaxed and unhurried.

You'd never find the Egg Café by chance - it is hidden away in a side street off Bold Street. You need to look for the sign and then be prepared to climb lots of stairs. But the climb is worth it - the Vegan and Veggie food is better than anywhere. This is a great place to eat and... More

I am not a vegetarian but my friend is so thought we would give it a try. I had a vegetable lasagna and it was amazing full of flavour, did not miss meat and will definitely return again and good value for money

This would be my second home if I lived in Liverpool. Great selection of very reasonably priced veggie and vegan dishes served in generous portions. We loved being able to take our own bottle of wine in ( small corkage fee). The best thing about this place is the chilled out vibe and gentle buzz of happy folk from all... More
