If you live in or are visiting Liverpool there is no shortage of new places to eat and drink, There are some fantastic choices but i would like to share one of my favourites…
THE BALTIC BAKEHOUSE
This bakery situated on Bridgewater street, prides itself on the beautiful homemade sourdough that is available to buy as a loaf to take out or from the coffee shop menu in a variety of yummy fayre!
For breakfast, ‘toast your own’ sourdough or white tin is featured, complete with gargantuan jars of Skippy PB or locally made jams and spreads to top your toast! The Almond croissants are the best i have had and the retro enamel cup of builders tea for £1 is the perfect thing to wash it down. If you are after a more substantial choice, the Bacon or sausage butty is the way to go!
For lunch a homemade soup normally features on the menu along with Open sandwiches, sometimes Topped with Buffalo mozzarella, beautiful tomatoes and pesto, and the UGC (Ultimate Grilled Cheese) seems a favourite from peeking at others people’s orders!
The cakes, tarts and Pastries are amazing! My husbands complete favourite are the Baltic Rox – Think a good sausage roll but bread instead of pastry with a sweet sticky sauce inside (Brown Sauce according to the lady that served us). We tend to buy 3 or 4 if they are available whenever we go, everyone raves about them and if you pop in, you will see why!
The surroundings are rustic but warm, inviting and unpretentious. The staff are always friendly and will give you a few tips if you are stuck on what to order, I have never been disappointed!
There is also a high chair available if you have tot in tow!
You can tell the ingredients in everything are very good quality and this, i think sets the Baltic apart from the rest.
Check them out on facebook, twitter or on their own website!
