Look at it. Just look at it. They said the Egg’s cheese on toast would never be kicked off its throne, but there’s a new king in town. This isn’t just cheese on toast – this is the Brink’s Posh Cheese on Toast.
A wedge of freshly baked bread is smothered with Smoked Applewood, topped with optional parma ham. GET IN MY MOUTH. But it’s inside you’ll find the real surprise which really sets this apart, in the form of pickle. Now, we don’t care much for pickle, but we respect that the chefs plonk it in front of you without any hint on the menu because it’s for your own good, damnit. It’s truly glorious – just trust us.
Besides the sex on toast, this place is an absolute gem and so much more than your usual café bar. Based on Parr St, the Brink is revolutionary in its status as Liverpool’s first dry bar and provides a welcoming, creative space where people from all backgrounds and walks of life can dine, hang out, socialise and relax. The food is just as colourful as its mocktails and interiors, with ingredients locally sourced and meals lovingly prepared.
They’re passionate about promoting the health and creativity of their local community and work closely with local artists, musicians, poets and performers to produce a wide range of events (we love the Heartbeat Community group drumming). Best of all, The Brink is a recovery social enterprise, meaning all profits go directly back into the community to fund support for those who have suffered through alcoholism and addiction.
The Brink is one of our favourite places to while away lazy Sunday afternoons. You’re guaranteed to leave inspired and with a satisfied gut.
