New South Liverpool café opens its doors

A new café serving fresh, locally sourced food has opened in South Liverpool.

The menu at the family-run Dove & Olive on Dovedale Road will change daily based on what’s in season and features a wine list supplied by the prestigious R&H Fine Wines.

The neighbourhood café plans to stock bread, fruit and veg, cheese, meat, jams, coffee and chutneys all from people who work in Liverpool’s independent scene.

Ruth Gossage of Dove & Olive, says: “After many years working in the hospitality industry the Dove & Olive team decided it was time to open our own little independent neighbourhood café.

“The inspiration being the pretty little space we found on Dovedale Road, the road we all grew up on, was to make a space where the local community can come, eat tasty food, yummy cakes and also enjoy a glass of wine.”

Taco Bell plans Bold Street launch

American fast food chain Taco Bell looks set to open its first Liverpool restaurant on Bold Street.

The Mexican-inspired eatery, which serves a range of tacos, quesadillas and nachos, has applied to Liverpool City Council for a license to operate at 8 Bold Street.

The Ropewalks building is the former home of lingerie store Bravissimo which relocated to a new unit in Liverpool ONE last year.

The UK was the first European country to get its own Taco Bell, when in 1986 a location was launched on London’s Coventry Street.

There are now 17 Taco Bell’s here in the UK, the nearest to Liverpool being a branch in Manchester’s Arndale which opened in 2011.

Taco Bell refused to officially confirm the new Bold Street restaurant but did tell Your Move: “Keep your eyes peeled open for a few more Taco Bell’s popping up around England in the near future”.
