Coffee & Fandisha, 5 Brick St, Liverpool, L1 0BL
The principle behind C&F stems from the traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony of serving freshly brewed coffee alongside popcorn and other small bowls of food. Expect rich, dark, delicious flavours that can only be savoured.
For the less caffeine-addicted, the hot chocolate is also unbeatable, with options to choose not only between the type of chocolate, but also the strength. The same loving care and detailed attention also extends to the food, with a locally sourced, seasonal menu inspired by the founders’ travels.
But what’s good coffee without a place to enjoy it in? Tucked away down a small side street in the heart of the Baltic Triangle (recently re-named Liverpool’s ‘creative quarter’), C&F is the place to hide away from everything else going on. Quiet, calm and simple (thanks in part to the limitations of size), yet cosy. Also check out the ‘yellow wall’; a dedicated space solely for local creatives to display and exhibit their work.
