Matta’s to open café
Bold Street veteran Matta’s is set to open its own café.
Matta’s International Foods, which has been in the Ropewalks since 1984, has had plans approved by Liverpool City Council to convert the first floor of its shop into a new eatery.
According to documents included with the planning application, the café will serve “healthy meals based on a range of international cuisine”.
As part of the plans, the second floor will also become a yoga and meditation centre which will host small classes and offer massage and physiotherapy treatments.
Restaurant lined up for Belle Valle shopping centre
A new restaurant could be heading to Belle Valle Shopping Centre.
Applicant Ice Drinks and Snacks Ltd wants to convert two vacant retail units into a new eatery at the site.
According to a planning application submitted to Liverpool City Council, the proposed new restaurant would seat up to 98 diners.
The establishment would include a mezzanine area and a ‘grab and go’ style café.
Foodie offering heading to Pride
A host of international food stalls and bars will serve up a range of tasty treats at this year’s Liverpool Pride celebrations.
The food and drink offer will form part of 2017’s fun-filled ‘We Are Family’ element of the festival.
The free family friendly programme of entertainment will be part of Pride for the second year, and is expected to be even bigger when it returns to the city’s St George’s Quarter on 30 July.
Visitors to the site will also be able to enjoy live entertainment, workshops, craft stalls and fairground rides.
