We had a lunch here, sitting outside, after deciding it looked one of the better cafes in the busy street. We both had the Provencale tart, which came with chips and salad, which was OK but the tart was rather small and mostly cheese with very little veg and the salad very dull (just a bit of lettuce and coleslaw). Service quite quick and cold drinks fine. Would look for somewhere better next time in Southport.

Just popped to Southport while the suns shining and stopped off at this cafe mainly because I saw the food hygiene 5 star rating.
Service, food and drinks were faultless.
My only bit of advice would possibly be free refills on the tea and make sure the chairs outside are kept clean.
See you again soon :-)

We popped in for a light refreshment last weekend and ended up ordering some lunch. The food was enjoyable and came very quickly but they did forget some chips which we had to ask for.
Toastie was fresh and tasty and sop portion was generous. The only draw back was that the toasted teacake looked frozen and mass produced and went very dry as it cooled.

my family and i have had a few visits to cafe parisien and have spent a lot of money there. last weekend we went as a treat with the children ,ordered four drinks and four toasted tea cakes which if made at home is quite a simple task! we received our drinks, lingered for 20 minutes drinking them and still no tea. cakes came. The polish head waitress informed us they were very busy and would have to wait until the grill was available. i eventually expressed my dissapoinment and asked for our money for tea cakes back . i was rudely handed my money without any appology from herself or management. i would have at least expected a comment from the manager but instead all we got was dissaproving stares from the waitress. maybe it would be an idea for the staff to attend a customer care course, as this lack of service is ultimately costing cafe parisien money. we are not ever going to return again and have found far superior service in another lord street cafe.LIKE IV SAID WHAT A SHAME.

My friends & I come to cafe Parisien nearly every week & always have lovely food & drink here. Cafe & toilets are always clean & decor is stylish with a traditional cafe feel. Always seems busy when we go but never wait too long for food & drink & is always cooked fresh to order. Staff are very helpful & we even bring my small dog with us sometimes which I think is great!
