Moose Coffee, a piece of North America in Liverpool | REVIEW

Moose Coffee, Granola & Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes

Sometimes all you need is pancakes. The good ole fluffy, delicious and mouth-watering kind. When it comes to pancakes, America does it best. New York surprised me with Bubby’s stand out Banana and Nut Pancakes, a shoutout to the origins of authentic American cuisine with a modern touch which, to be completely honest, I thought would never be matched anywhere outside the US. Boy, was I wrong.

Some weeks ago, Sam and I spent a weekend exploring the wonderful city of Liverpool. As per usual during our travels, brunch had to happen at some point and before we knew it, we found ourselves queuing to get inside Moose Coffee. Despite having no idea what to expect, we’d heard this cute diner was one of the best places in The Pool to enjoy a Sunday brunch date. And OMG, if Tom Hardy and I have something in common (!!!) it’s that we were both blown away by Moose’s incredibly delicious American-style menu.

Inspired by North American and Canadian breakfast and brunch flavours (hence the Moose theme), Moose Coffee brings the diner attitude to Merseyside and surroundings with a total of five restaurants, three in Liverpool and two in Manchester. We opted for Moose Coffee Dale Street, a stone throw from two of the The Pool‘s emblematic landmarks: the Liver Building and Cavern Club, the legendary live music venue famous for showcasing The Beatles.

Venturing into Moose Coffee after a short 10min wait outside (they don’t take reservations and are first come, first served), we were welcomed by a two-level cosy interior with a smart décor featuring large leather booths, wooden tables, antler chandeliers and moose themed artwork (moose dressed as an astronaut, an admiral and a queen). We quickly nestled into our table and our eyes focused on the pancake selection of the menu. Whilst Sam enjoyed the Moose Granola & Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes, topped with orange pieces, I opted for the cinnamony Moose Apple & Homemade Salted Caramel Pancakes. Both portions came with Canadian maple syrup and butter on the side (aka a total favourite)!

Needless to say, the pancakes were as gorgeous as we expected. Although a more manageable stack than the Bubby’s pancakes we had in New York, these were equally as tasty. My mouth is watering just thinking about them!

But it’s not all about the pancakes at Moose Coffee. They also serve a long list of different dishes including all-day breakfast, sandwiches, various egg options in all their shapes and sizes (Benedict, scrambled, rancheros, omelette, poached…), waffles, salads, French toast and creamy milkshakes. I couldn’t resist but giggle when I read the ‘Covfefe’ option on the menu. ‘Despite the constant negative press’, covfefe turned out to be an omelette with two chicken patties and a griddled tomato. Best part is that Moose Coffee donate 50p of each covfefe dish to international aid and child refuge charities! Let me know if you try it, I’m particularly interested in knowing what it tastes like. Plus it’s for a good cause!

Whether for a yummy breakfast or brunch, or even an evening meal, this is truly a must if you’re in the area. A fantastic restaurant with beautifully served dishes, spot on service always going the extra mile and an enviable location near Liverpool’s city centre. I could certainly get used to a stack of pancakes from Moose Coffee a week and without hesitation would recommend to anyone visiting Liverpool or Manchester.
