I been in to 81 a few times for breakfast and for afternoon tea and cake. Both really great. Everything freshly made and lovely homemade cakes. I hadn't realised they had started doing food in the evenings at the weekends until a friend took me last week. Brilliant! The menu only consists of tapas (at 3 for £10 great value) but they were really fresh and tasted great. I particularly liked the goats cheese with honey and walnuts - really unusual. There's a good selection of wines and bottled beers/lagers. And the place is just SO friendly!

We had breakfast at 81 Renshaw a few weeks ago and found the food extremely fresh and tasty, and relatively cheap for you get. Nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. They also organize wine-tasting sessions on Friday nights, and the wine was ggggooood. A contemporary, elegant but informal version of an art-deco cafe'. Liverpool needs and deserves more places like this. And less coffee chains.

I visited 81 Renshaw for the first time for an Impropriety night (Improvisation collective), the food was amazing, the cook really nice and funny and the event on that night was amazing! Such an incredible experience!

I came back a second time for their Embryo night (every last sunday of the month, if I remember correctly). Artists from Liverpool, singers, actors, dancers: la crème de la crème. A really good night in a great place!

Found this cafe by accident while exploring Liverpool. So glad I did. The menu was great and covered many different dietary requirements - vegan, vegetarian and gluten free and at a very reasonable rate. I had a mini vegetarian breakfast ( egg, haloumi, veg. sausage, beans, cherry tomatoes, veg pudding and mushrooms) which included a cup of tea or coffee and toast for £4.20. It wasn't that mini either! Very friendly staff and clean, attractive environment with interesting art work on display. Will be going back soon with friends. Highly recommended.
