Review Tapper’s Cafe – Union Street Southport.

My friend and I visited this cafe on a sunny Wednesday lunchtime. We were greeted with a smile and the place was bustling with a mix of business folk and shoppers alike. With the summer on the horizon I went with thoughts of opting for a healthy salad but my eyes were immediately drawn to the bagel selection.

Whilst waiting for my friend to arrive I ordered a Latte, which was delicious, and hot (I cannot abide warm coffee!)

I opted for a bacon brie and chilli jam bagel £6.50 and my friend chose a warm goats cheese, sun blush tomato, mixed leaves and balsamic glaze bagel £6.50. We couldn’t resit sharing a portion of chips at £3.00 (so much for the diet, but they tasted that good that we didn’t care!) and the chilli jam was so tasty that when i enquired the waitress informed me I could buy jar, which I did. Bagels come served with a side of tasty homemade coleslaw.

It is spotless. It is also waitress service which makes a refreshing change from the coffee shops and cafes in other areas of the town centre.


We could not quite manage a cake so we opted to take one home instead, I chose a chocolate brownie and my friend a huge slice of coffee and walnut, I believe they are all homemade too.

In my opinion this is a fabulous little spot, just off the beaten track but on a interesting street. I will be returning, maybe for the salad next time!

This has to be the best Cafe I have visited in the town so far.

Final score: 9.5/10 

Bon appetite!
