DO NOT ever stop coming here. This place is nothing short of the best breakfast restaurant, I have been too and I know clearly from the popularity that countless agree. Fantastic choice, tastes fantastic, great service and other than the waits on weekends, and sometimes weekdays (shows how popular) it is truly fantastic and you would not be disappointed. Worth...

Good cheap breakfast. Really like the sausage. Can swop and change a few things on the plate which is always handy as I can't have tomato or bread I can at least add an extra egg rather than losing out 👍🏽 Staff are sometimes a bit overworked keeping up with the coffee but can't complain as you can drink as...

In the 'pool to visit my daughter and I had the good fortune to find this place just around the corner from where I'm staying. The place isn't small, but gets packed on weekends, and even pleasantly busy on a Monday morning. Came twice for breakfast; had The American first time and then The Chorizo Scrambler on the second occasion.... More

Absolutely amazing food here, we all had major problems actually deciding what to order (options on the breakfast menu is huge) Full English breakfast was absolutely delicious, served red hot and the speed of service was excellent considering the place was full to the brim, the banana and butterscotch pancakes are to die for. Service from all of the team... More

The breakfast menu is really good. This said the food on the regular menu is extremely poor. I have been three times over the last couple of years for a meal and it is always extremely disappointing. No improvement what so ever. When there are so many good restaurants on Allerton road there is no reason to visit this place... More

We went with 2 kids so an early visit of 5pm when there was no wait for a table as they start serving food at that time. The food as always was lovely and I had my first try of the Mixed Grill which I highly recommend, very filling with Steak, Chicken and Ribs. Staff were attentive and friendly and... More

Went for a late sunday breakfast and there was a 30 minute wait to be seated, showing how popular it was. Delicious food, would definitely recommend the nutella and strawberry pancakes and the 'eggs benny'. Only negative, they need more than one person serving the tea and coffee as the refills were slow. Definitely recommend for the lovely authentic atmosphere... More

Friend and me looking for lunch 12 noon last Monday - hungry after our walk in Sefton Park. We walked across the road and into The Tavern. What a lovely welcome from the lady at the lectern! We were seated at a window table in this large and very busy restaurant. Friend ordered tea; coffee for me. The tall, handsome... More

Been meaning to go here for ages and I'm so disappointed I haven't been sooner!! The breakfasts here are amazing!! Went with a friend on Saturday at 9.30am and it was already heaving! Just about got a table as it's so popular. I ordered 'breakfast at Tiffany's' 2 American style pancakes with syrup, 2 sausage patties and scrambled eggs. Totally... More
