At the last count, there are seven café and coffee houses in the centre of Formby Village. Two of these are examples of national chain coffee houses, Caffe Nero and Costa Coffee, both with outdoor pavement seating.
The other locally owned and managed coffee houses combine the best traditions of café and restaurants together. These five local businesses each have a unique ‘take’. The modern furnishings of the Gallery and its outdoor seating contrast with the artistic nature of Café D’Art, which has a constantly changing display of paintings and photographs.
The Cafe Des Crepes is as the name suggests a specialist in French style crepes. Finally, Woodwards and Quo Vadis reach out into Chapel Lane also with outdoor seating and lively eating and drinking spaces indoors. Cafe D'Art, Woodwards and The Gallery are popular places for live music events each weekend.
All of these places are rightly popular and well supported. They each serve their local fans and know you and your preferences. Together they all add to a unique cosmopolitan and lively atmosphere to Formby village, the heart of our town.
