About Us

Tamarillo is a family run, privately owned café located at St Martins House, Stanley Road, Bootle just north of Liverpool City Centre.

We set up our first sandwich shop ’Pumpernickels’ (Liverpool) in 1998. After selling it in 1999 we wanted somewhere with the potential and space to serve excellent coffee and food from breakfast to lunch. Somewhere with a chilled atmosphere, a work environment that was fulfilling for our employees and that would enable us to deliver high-level service standards based on genuine hospitality and value for money.

Inspired by over 54 years in the industry, our love of quality food and beverages, local food markets, talking to many retailers and searching out speciality food suppliers, we knew there was a need in Bootle for something fresh, exciting and loving – Tamarillo was born in 2000.

Our wide range of food is prepared on the premises daily, using the highest quality fresh ingredients.

Now employing nine hardworking members of staff, Tamarillo remains an independent private business. Our skilled and highly trained staff make thousands of sandwiches and coffees every month, and the essential bacon ‘toastie’ to get Bootle started.

We love the way the food industry has developed in Liverpool and Sefton over the past 18 years, and have absolute respect for the scores of small independent operators making a name for themselves now.

We will be supporting them as much as possible and we invite you to support us too.
