On Sunday morning, after two nights of partying, it was definitely time for brunch.
We decided to head along to Moose Coffee on Dale Street, considering we’d never been before. Despite having read some mixed reviews, it is always very busy so we decided there must be a reason for that. We did have to wait a little while for a table, although this was partly our fault for turning up at 11.30am, but the service throughout was excellent once we were seated.
We both had New Jersey Moose a which I would highly recommend – excellent potato hash, softly poached eggs and a zesty hollandaise that I could have done with another spoon of, all on top of a bagel. It’s double carb so not the healthiest way to start a morning, but as a treat it’s excellent.
We followed this up with some Cinnamon Apple and Salted Caramel Pancakes. To be honest this was excessive and we were quickly defeated by the mountain of food! I think I prefer a thinner pancake, but if thick American pancakes are your thing then I would say these would fit the bill well. The salted caramel was good (there could have been double the amount) although the apples were a little undercooked despite being fresh and tasty. I probably wouldn’t order these again but I would definitely go back for the poached eggs – I especially appreciate that you can combine Benedict and Florentine in one meal. The prices were a little higher than your average Liverpool brunch, but nothing extortionate. All in all, I would visit again – maybe slightly earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon – I want to try their burger with cheese and bacon sandwiched in a doughnut. It just sounds so grossly delicious.
