Diners in the Café at Tate Liverpool

With views of the historic Albert Dock, the Café at Tate Liverpool serves breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. Enjoy our delicious, home-made hot and cold meals or simply drop in for a coffee with friends.


Our menus change seasonally, ingredients are locally sourced and all dishes are made fresh from scratch on the premises. We pride ourselves on working with some of the finest producers in the North West so that we offer the best cheese, meat, fish and vegetables possible.
