Leaf, Liverpool

Leaf, Liverpool
I spied Leaf the day we went to Crust, and then unexpectedly I found myself back in the city the following Friday for a last minute visit to Liverpool Tattoo Convention. Since I was having my skin scraped with an inky needle for a few hours, I thought a hearty breakfast was probably a good idea. Blood sugar and all that. 

Leaf is a relaxed kind of place, where creatives with furrowed brows and laptops, sit side by side with folk like us, just wanting a cracking full English. The menu is pretty big, and there is a wide variety of breakfast items (they do food later in the day too), including some great healthy options, like chia seed porridge.

We started with a nice cup of tea. I counted a whopping 55 varieties, but there may well be more! Whereas my parents were happy to stick with your standard brew, I asked for a recommendation, which came in the form of a beautifully fragrant cherry blossom green tea. A bit like a warm Bakewell tart. Even the teapots they come in were beautiful.

Full English - smoked bacon, sausage, black pudding, fried eggs, potato croquette, field mushroom, roast vine tomatoes, baked beans and buttered granary toast: I can't say enough good things about this. Nothing too faffy, but good quality ingredients, and plenty of it! I loved the little touches like the choice of eggs and the home made potato croquettes. The sausages were beautifully spiced and the bacon had just the right amount of that smokey flavour. Even the mushroom was nice... True.

Look how pretty their tea collection is! I also bought some of their ginger root tea to take to my pal's house, which promises to revitalize if you're feeling a little deflated. They even have little tins with tea samples in for you to sniff! I like sniffing tea. Weirdo.

Go to Leaf for a lazy morning with a big breakfast and several cups of tea.
