Happened on this little gem on a walk into town with husband today and I literally can't wait to go back! It was a miserable, wet morning (that fine rain that soaks you through!!), but waking in here soon warmed us both up. We were greeted by two cheery "Hello's" and got a table in the window. Drinks were served... More

I visited this lovely little cafe yesterday morning as my friend had recommended it for breakfast. I went along with my boyfriend and we both ordered a full breakfast which was amazing. I had a coffee which was perfect and my boyf had a Savse smoothie which he really enjoyed. We couldn't manage a piece of cake after breakfast so... More

The girls in here are fantastic, such a friendly atmosphere and the locally sourced product for the breakfast is a real treat, to add to that the very satisfying coffee (recommend the flat white), once you have been here you won't go anywhere else locally. Not had the lunches yet or tasted the cake which looks amazing, but I am... More

My first visit to Tapper's was a most enjoyable one. The staff are warm, friendly, polite and experienced in customer service. Varied menu with good choice of vegetarian options. Good, fresh produce used (apart from chips) and a lovely atmosphere. The cakes are out of this world! Would definitely recommend to anyone. One tiny criticism though there isn't much that... More

Visited the cafe last Saturday afternoon with my girlfriend, intending to only stay for a drink. A pit stop. However, when I saw some of the amazing food on the other tables we had to order some. And... I wasn't disappointed. I had a Catherine's club and my girlfriend had a bacon, Brie and chilli jam bagel. Both were sooooo... More

Moving to Southport in the Summer, so have visited a number of times recently to view properties. Stumbled upon this wonderful coffee shop on our first visit and it has become a favourite. We have now popped in every time we have visited Southport! Clean and well presented with a warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff are lovely and the... More

Fantastic place. Have been here several times for either breakfast, brunch, lunch, cakes or just drinks and every time has been faultless. Food always superb and the staff are so welcoming and attentive. By far the best cafe in Southport

A trip to Southport simply isn't complete without a visit to this little gem. I recommend the pastrami bagel with a side of fries, no room for desert? Their delights are available to take away, perfect. Can't wait to return!
