What a difference a change makes, my wife and i came here with our daughter who is a vegetarian, i have never been in a vegetrian restaurant, my wife has, i had to start with, soup and cheese on toast, well after that i was stuffed and could not finish the main meal. When we visit liverpool again The Egg will be one of our first stopped, big portions and reasonally priced. Can`t wait to eat here again. Positive ashley dunn

It is worth visiting Liverpool just so you can sample the food at The Egg! It is always amazing, plentiful and cheap. The Sunday lunch is the biggest (and tastiest!) I have ever had in a restuarant, but be warned do not expect to have room for any dessert afterwards! The atmosphere is very friendly with a real mix of ages, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work everybody. Positive Liz Forshaw

I took some vegan friends to Egg just before new year and we all loved it. The food was great (we had 2 meat eaters in our party who were more than happy with the veggie burgers). The atmosphere was great - busy and chatty - and staff were friendly and helpful. It was incredibly cheap and the food was good and plentiful (i couldnt finish everything which is rare). We will definately be going again soon, highly recommended. Positive Jayne

The Egg is brilliant for any meal of the day, they do fabulous full english breakfasts, whether you're vegan, vegetarian or even a meat-eater, the food is excellent value for a good tastey wholesome meal in a lovely down to earth atmosphere. The menu is very well done, a small menu that changes daily, it's very balanced. I had a wonderful mushroom dahl with salad and beans ( I thought it was nice to have the option of beans and salad instead of the usual rice). It was a very substantial meal, and although feeling very stuffed and satisfied at the end, I didn't have the guilty feeling gotten from the usual greasy stodgey indian. And all for under a fiver! I was very impressed, so much I went back for my breakfast the next day. This place is enough to convert any devoted meat-eater, don't think vegan food is going to lack in flavour because The Egg has proved vegan food can be full of flavour! It also proves to anyone who doubts the health benefits of veganism, that vegan food can effortlessly give you a tastey balanced diet with all the nutrients you need. I think it's excellent that they've also made free-range and fair-trade products so affordable. I have to say I've had the best two meals in my life at The Egg, so who ever you are, I highly recommend it so go on, give it a try! Positive Carys Raper

The Egg Cafe is a fabulous place. My partner and I sat in the newupstairs area which was very romantic. I have rarely spent the whole eveningin a restaurant and really not wanted to leave at closing time. If there isone word which sums up The Egg Cafe it's 'atmospheric'. On the night we werethere, the place was candle-lit and busy, and the music an eclectic mixranging from The Smiths to some funky Brazilian stuff. And, even better,there were no 'hushed tones'; the art of conversation is still alive andwell at The Egg giving it a wonderful 'buzz' of activity more commonly seenin cafes in France or Spain. The other customers ranged from teenagers tostudents to those of advancing years, and various different nationalaties -german and spanish were being spoken on tables adjacent to ours, which addsto the continental feel and the general ambience. And if that were notenough, the food was not only inexpensive but very tasty too, and the staffvery friendly and attentive. I had the Spaghetti Bolognese, and my partnerhad Shepherd's Pie with Mixed Salad (both vegan), followed by the AppleCrumble (also vegan), washed down with a bottle of wine and several pots ofherbal/fruit teas from a large selection. The place is unlicensed but youcan bring your own wine and pay a £1 corkage charge. We'll definitely bereturning very soon. Highly recommeded. Positive John Guest

Went on my birthday, the choice of food wasn't impressive. We were toldthat the food we wanted would take 40 mins which we said fine only to bethen told that it was no longer available. The guy serving us was probablytired, communication lacking, wandered off in mid order! Tables didn'tappear to have been cleaned in months, things were sticking to them! Thecutlery wasn't very clean either. The music was ear blasting! Although tobe fair they did turn it down when they switched the lights off andbrought out the candles. Table lay out was a bit like a cross between YMCAand old fashioned Butlins! Huge long tables. They say they are open till11pm - we went at 6pm and just about all of the vegan food wasn'tavailable. So wouldn't advise you go any later! Loads of cheap Tescoingredients on show made you think they are using the cheapest nonorganic, supermarket bought ingredients and charging you a kings ransomfor it! Several microwaves used to reheat the food. Toilets left a lot tobe desired. When the food arrived it was cold and the portion sizepityful. Maybe it was because it was cold but it wasn't very tasty either.Just extremely disappointing! Bit of a shame really as we all loveLiverpool and to have somewhere we could go and eat would be great butdon't think we'll be going back there again nor recommending it! Sorry!

A great restaurant - service is quick and very friendly (free cake on birthdays!), the food is lovely and comes in big portions for very cheap prices.  The atmosphere is great, and they display local aspiring artists' work on the walls - there's something new to see each time.

Both soups each day are vegan, as are many of the other dishes. Portions are big, prices are low, meaning great value for money. Food is tasty and service friendly. Neutral Steve
