A casual café vibe by day and a busy restaurant in the evening, the Quarter is a jewel in the crown of the Georgian Quarter and the perfect place to be in the city if the sun is out all day. From the casual breakfasts and coffee from the morning through to afternoon, generous bowls of pasta for a late lunch, cakes and sandwiches with a cup of tea, and on to fresh pizza and delicious bowls of pasta in the evening. The Quarter is the best location to meet friends, to share time together, and to be in a section of Liverpool that is breath-taking in its beauty and inspiring in its creation.
Really the first place in Liverpool to promote that laid-back, continental café vibe, with a long line of tables laid out alongside the beautiful cobbled streets of Falkner Street, in the midst of the gorgeous Georgian Quarter. The Quarter has had a few remodels down the years, extending to the large establishment it is today. It dominates the bottom end of Falkner Street, especially when the sun is out, and all the outdoor tables are full of coffee drinkers and those after a light bite to eat. The interior has plenty of room for the casual dining vibe that has been carefully crafted, and the deli counter as you enter immediately builds an ambience and expectation for the quality you are about to devour.
It’s the quality that shines through with everything on the menu at The Quarter, with the grazing section the perfect way to saunter through an afternoon, taking a bowl of olives to start, maybe ordering some manchego and ham hock croquettes and a meze plate when your friends arrive. If you are planning on sharing with friends, the sharing boards are extensive and all come with flatbreads – just choose between the fish, veggie, or charcuteria. The grill menu is simple but delicious, and the stonebaked pizzas and homemade pasta, crispy and nourishing respectively. Whatever you order, the massive salad choice should always be part of the equation. What is especially good about The Quarter is that it has an extensive gluten-free menu alongside the traditional menu – with many of the dishes available in gluten-free form (for example the pizzas use a different base).
For grazing bits and starters, you’ll pay £4 to £7-ish as you work your way down the list of items, whist the big sharing boards are priced between £17 and £20. A stonebaked pizza will set you back a respectable £8.95 for the basic margherita, up to £12.50 for the most expensive. Pasta has a similar range between £9 and £12.95 (although the Lobster Ravioli is £14.95).
