Leaf is an independent tea shop on Bold Street in the heart of Liverpool. It's a true tea-lover's haven, with a wide variety of unique tea flavours on offer as well as a kitchen dishing up delicious hand-crafted food. Thanks to its laid-back atmosphere, it's one of the most popular places to eat in Liverpool, both during the day and later on when the lights are turned down for the evening crowd. Long wooden tables and leather sofas fill the downstairs space which is always busy with a mixed crowd sat beneath the kitsch bunting and floral lampshades.
Breakfast at Leaf is served from 9am-12pm on weekdays, and 10am-3pm at weekends, with tasty twists on breakfast classics. The lunch and evening menu is served from 12pm until 9pm and includes a wide range of soups, sandwiches, flatbreads, main meals, nibbles and sharing platters. Whether you're looking for a light lunch in Liverpool or a main evening meal, Leaf's menu has both options covered. However, its tea menu is its true speciality with black teas, white teas, scented black teas, green teas, oolong teas, fruit teas, herbal infusions and even more all on offer.
Regular gigs at Leaf take place upstairs where you can expect to see some top acts, whilst downstairs plays host to weekly open mic nights. Many of the events at Leaf Cafe are free entry, with Spotify Wednesdays letting you pick the music, and First Listen Fridays playing a new album from start to finish with no interruptions.
Leaf also works with the local community to offer up a variety of unique events and sessions, including life drawing, electrified yoga, a knitting club, book club and pudding club – which involves five courses of delicious puddings washed down with a perfectly matched cup of tea!
