Coffee shop exploration: Blooming Skull Coffee.

138 Bebington road, Higher Bebington, Wirral, CH62 5BJ. Open Tues - Sat 9am - 6pm, Sun 9:30am - 4pm |

Coffee and cake doesn't come much better than this, a laid back, light and airy coffee shop that certainly knows it's brews, as well as being veggie and vegan friendly. Who'd have thought that you'd be able to find a dairy free haven tucked away in this idyllic part of the Wirral!

Blooming Skull Coffee have only been open for a few months, but they've already made a name for themselves amongst the locals for their great selection of brews and their vegan friendly menu of treats. Normally finding something that's dairy free can be a struggle, so I didn't expect to stumble upon a quaint coffee shop offering free from treats whilst driving through this side of the Wirral, but it's certainly been a most welcome find.

Their light and spacious coffee shop makes for a lovely stop off for a cuppa, whether you prefer a spot of tea or a jolt of much needed caffeine to start the day off. You can't miss their bold skull decal'd window on the high street, beaconing you in with their latest seasonal brews and tasty cakes.

With a full menu of tasty treats to indulge in, alongside a selection of brews and coffees to keep you going. Their menu of daily offerings has a different selection of treats to keep you coming back for more, whether you fancy some gluten free cake, vegan bakes or some indulgent cheesecakes, what better to scoff on with your freshly brewed latte!

On my visit their was a tasty selection of treats to choose from, ranging from chocolatey bakes, to classic lemon drizzle and yummy ginger cake. I decided to try their gluten free bake of the day, a lovely cherry and almond loaf cake. A sweet mini loaf cake that was delightfully light and incredibly moreish, for a free from bake this was utterly delightful!

To accompany my cake I tried their seasonal pumpkin spiced latte, a novelty for me as I haven't indulged in a spot of caffeine for quite some time since becoming lactose intolerant! You can go dairy free with this brew, so I opted to have it made with oat milk, you can also have soya milk if you prefer.

A great range of choices for free from and vegan diets, making for a perfect stop off if your visiting Bebington, or nearby Port Sunlight (you wouldn't realise at first just how close it is to the village!). I'll definitely be back next time I'm in the area!
