Cake shop exploration: East Avenue Bakehouse.

112 Bold Street, Liverpool, L1 4HY. Open Mon - Thurs 8am - 5pm, Fri 8am - 10pm, Sat 9:30am - 10pm, Sun 9:30am - 9pm |

You don't need to walk far in Liverpool to stumble upon a cosy place for a quick bite to eat, but why eat just anywhere when you could over indulge in some freshly baked goods and tasty locally sourced produce. East Avenue Bakehouse does just that, serving up some of the tastiest freshly baked goods you'll find on Liverpool's bustling Bold Street.

This isn't just any local bakery, East Avenue Bakehouse certainly adores it's baked goods and they've been serving up a tasty selection of the sweet, doughy stuff for the past couple of years from their lovely Bold Street cafe.

They've certainly made a name for themselves amongst the locals as the place to visit for freshly baked, locally sourced treats, with a delicious seasonal menu that's constantly changing, you can be sure of something different to over indulge on every time you visit.

Located at the top end of Bold Street, as good an excuse as any to stop off and over indulge after that walk, their large glass fronted cafe certainly draws you in as you can coo over the latest bakes from the shop window. Handily placed at the front of the shop, the first thing that greets you is a counter of the days latest bakes, you'll be hard pushed for choice as you find yourself faced between several different cakes and sweet treats to choose from, varying from tasty brownies to scrumptious cakes and yummy pastries. A different selection everyday so you really will be spoilt for choice!

They certainly do love their baked goods, as their daily selection of scrumptious treats shows, on my visit their was a tasty selection of treats to choose from, ranging from chocolate brownies to cheesecake slices and even doughnuts (oh my!!).

I went for a slice of their Hummingbird cake, a lovely sweet bake topped with coconut flavoured buttercream, lightly flavoured but delightfully sweet, the coconut topping went perfectly with the bake.

To accompany my cake I had a pot of their Earl grey tea, which went perfectly with the bake, you'll find a full menu of teas and coffees, as well as a spot of tipple if you prefer a boozier cake trip!

A lovely find, their light and airy cafe certainly does draw you in, especially when you can view the bakes from the shop front. Definitely worth a visit for their ever changing menu of baked treats and a great stop off at the top of Bold Street.
