On the hunt for a decent vegetarian restaurant in Liverpool? We have scampered over the city in our hunt for the places where you can eat green – and our guide brings you some of the best (and some of the more unusual places to get decent vegetarian food, too). Dig in!
Here are our picks
The Egg Café, Top Floor, 16-18 Newington, Liverpool, Merseyside, L1 4ED - Visit now
Egg Café is vegan/vegetarian-exclusive in its menu and beautifully laid back in its atmosphere. Think a purple-painted door, long wooden tables and bountiful portions of breakfast, salad, quiche and other hearty fare.
Bacaro restaurant, 47 Castle Street, Liverpool, Merseyside, L2 9UB - Visit now
Bacaro is a sophisticated affair. There are some meat-free treats lurking among the cichetti and pizzette, as well as an seven-strong section dedicated to vegetarian plates, including shoestring courgette fries (yum) and primavera risotto with honey goats cheese (double yum).
60 Hope Street, 60 Hope Street, Liverpool, Merseyside, L1 9BZ - Visit now
It doesn’t have the lengthiest selection we’ve ever seen, and it does resort to risotto (snore), but 60 Hope Street is still a bit special. The place settings may not be fussy, with sweet fresh flowers and clean-lined cutlery, but its well-executed vegetarian plates have a good range of flavours. It also does a dynamite deep-fried jam sandwich, which will take you back to afternoon snacks and sticky fingers.
