Last week, I visited Alma De Cuba on Seel Street in Liverpool for their Gospel Brunch. It was Mother’s Day so my sisters and I treated our beautiful Mum to an afternoon of delicious food and brilliant music.
Alma De Cuba is an exquisite Grade II listed building, formerly St Peter’s Roman Catholic Church. The building was opened as a restaurant and bar in 2005 but still boasts many original features, such as the brickwork, altar and stunning stained glass windows.
Honestly, the interior of Alma De Cuba is just breathtaking:
Gospel Brunch is held every Sunday between 12pm and 6pm, with the gospel choir appearing between 1.30pm amd 5pm. The choir are AMAZING. I could honestly just sit there and listen to them all day. They sing a mixture of traditonal hymns such as Amazing Grace and His Eye Is On The Sparrow, to charts hits by Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys. They’re also known to take requests. There really is something for everyone!
Given that Gospel Brunch is held on Sundays, there’s a good line in roast dinners on the menu (including a nut roast), plus plenty of other mouthwatering dishes:
My Mum and sister went for the roast chicken, my other sister had the nut roast and I chose the gnocci. I followed it with the pineapple and mango cheesecake, my Mum and sister went for the chocolate brownie and my other sister had the orange polenta cake.
The staff at Alma De Cuba are so friendly and tend to your every need. It’s so lovely to just sit back, eat some gorgeous food and take in the soulful delights of the extremely talented choir – They. Can. SING!
I would thoroughly recommend a trip to Alma De Cuba whether you’re a local or a visitor to the city of Liverpool. We’ll most certainly be back!
