An avid coffee lover with a passion for food, Sarah had always dreamt of owning a coffee shop. Whiling away the hours filling sketchbooks with ideas and amassing a growing coffee mug collection. She hoped to escape the comfort of her job in the textiles industry to pursue her passion. When she was forced to take redundancy, Sarah took her loss as the catalyst to ignite her dream, and on May 9th 2016, Lovelocks was born.
Now a haven nestled in the Edwardian architecture of Liverpool's bustling city centre. Lovelocks is a cornerstone of the local community, fueling everyone from gymgoers to office staff. Everyday Sarah heads to work, knowing that she has found her true calling.
The Lovelocks mantra is inclusivity. We want everyone to enjoy their experience with us, whether you are a coffee nerd craving a caffeine fix, a vegan in need of scrumptious cakes. Or just someone looking to escape the madness of the world with a warm cup of tea. No matter who you are, Lovelocks is the place for you.
We know the value of good coffee, it is more than just a quick energy boost, coffee is special, coffee is life. Working closely with local roasteries who share our enthusiasm for exceptional coffee, our freshly ground coffee is ethically sourced and of the highest quality. Our rotating list of quest filters and speciality drinks are curated by our staff and expert roasters, to showcase the best tea and coffee has to offer.
As a small independent business, we value and recognise passion. And see it as our duty to support a small business like ourselves wherever we can. From the sourdough bread for our amazing balsamic chicken sandwich to our marvellous range of cakes and tasty treats. All of our food is freshly prepared by local independent bakers and patissiers, who share the same dedication to their craft that built Lovelocks.
We are open Monday to Friday 8:30am - 3:30pm and Saturday 10am - 4pm, so you can come in for breakfast, lunch, early tea or all three!
We make the coffee when it is ordered. We use 100% Arabica beans which are roasted in Merseyside and freshly ground in house. We also serve teas, soft drinks and iced coffees!
We source fresh, local (where we can!) ingredients and make up our food daily so we always have food ready to go whether you are in a rush or looking to stay a while.
Here at Lovelocks we have vegan, veggie, coeliac and meat options so there is always something for everyone.
An absolutely gorgeous cappuccino without the usual bitterness that you'd get from Costa or such and avocado on toast which was to die for, I'll be back, loads. Lovely friendly service also. Emily Wootton
A real cafe run by real people. It is homely, good value for money and even for a coffee snob like me the coffee is quite excellent. It really helps that the staff are down to earth and friendly here and I recommend it to all my friends. Paul Hesketh
Had a meeting nearby and popped on as it was close to where I needed to be. Egg and bacon on toast. Sounds simple. But it's great when places do the simple things so well. Really good service. Lovely decor. Rod P.
