Renowned for serving specialty coffee that’s roasted in house, Bold Street Coffee made a name for itself in Liverpool and has been an institution ever since. 

Offering up a selection of hand-picked guest beans and blends from independent roasters, Bold Street Coffee has built a following among avid coffee connoisseurs who enjoy their carefully blended range of coffees, teas and iced beverages.

Since opening on Bold Street in 2010, the brand has expanded to Manchester’s Cross Street, where it received an incredibly warm welcome, as well as The Plaza in Liverpool and now BSC University Green.

BSC University Green’s food offering will be the same as the breakfast and lunch menu at Cross Street. Guests can enjoy a selection of fresh pastries with their coffee along with signature BSC Frys, Egg Boxes and Bowls of Super Porridge and Granola. BSC also offers a wide range of delicious butties, including their Chicken Katsu Club and classic Egg Mayo.

Vegans are well catered for with plant-based options including a roasted Chickpea and Avo Butty served on granary bread with beetroot hummus and rocket. There’s even a high-protein option for those keeping an eye on their macros with a ‘No Carb Box’ packed with scrambled egg, melted cheese, bacon, mushroom, tomato, avocado and rocket.

The BSC breakfast staple, though, is the Buoy. Ya basic egg buoy is a lightly toasted brioche bun packed with scrambled egg and melted cheese. Other variations include Sausage Buoy, Bacon Buoy, and a Veggie Buoy with hash brown, fried egg,avocado, mushroom, cheese and onion jam. There’s even a vegan buoy with a vegan brioche bun, aubergine patty, scrambled tofu, hash brown, vegan cheese, spinach and onion jam.

Like all other Bold Street Coffee sites, BSC University Green will be both family and dog friendly with Babaccinos and Puppaccinos available on request.

BSC University Green will also have its own range of BSC House coffee beans as well as guest roasts to purchase along with some home brewing equipment.

Bold Street Coffee also prides itself on using its space to support local artists, championing their work and showcasing it as a gallery throughout the space.To mark the opening of BSC University Green, Manchester based illustrator Jessica Lee will be the first to exhibit her work.

Jess’s work explores character designs, transforming regular things into an exciting idea through bold and fresh colours. “I’m inspired by the surrealist art movement,” says Jess. “The idea of merging stuff together to create something new and drawing what I want to see.”

BSC University Green will also be displaying work from Liverpool based artist, Sean Webster, who is currently exhibiting in Bold Street Coffee Liverpool.

The new Bold Street Coffee will be open Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm and Saturday 9am – 3pm.
