• Dove and Olive opens in South Liverpool

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.

“The food changes daily and we cook the menu fresh daily based on what’s in season. And daily cakes are baked to make sure all the food offering is fresh, homemade, rustic but most of all really tasty.

“We do have some staple favourites in there but each day the menu changes according to what we have in from our suppliers. As well as vegan and gluten free options.”
