Finding the ideal place to study isn’t always easy – the typical study spots at the library are too quiet and formal for some. Others may appreciate a change of scenery to reignite their creative side and burst through their writer’s block.
Whilst studying in your room is convenient, you can’t escape the noise made by your housemates who may have finished their exams and want to party.
So, where does that leave you? Well, we highly recommend taking a trip to a local café that offers a unique study atmosphere and most importantly, coffee!
We’ve compiled a comprehensive guide of the five best cafés in Liverpool for students looking to research, group study, play chess or even leisurely read in peace.

Independent, rustic, and idyllic – this delightful coffee house offers plenty of space for students to sit back with a latte (or espresso if it’s one of those days) and revise.
