EverGreen Boat Cafe is a unique plant-based cafe relatively close to us, in Lymm, between Liverpool and Manchester. You can see here pictures of the village from one of the visits a few years ago. They also organize fun events, like the Easter time Duck race, which I saw two or three times in the last years.
Besides, going to EverGreen Boat Cafe meant that I could cross over something from my bucket list – 40 before 40. I did put it as: take a narrow-boat day-trip or a short holiday, without realizing that I am not very good with all the rocking a boat does. So, spending an hour on a narrow-boat for lunch is a much better idea. I would love to go there again and my husband liked it too.
I wanted to go there for lunch and, yesterday, we stopped on our way to Manchester. First of all, we were so lucky finding a table, as, while we had lunch, many people were turned down, as the place was full. It is in a great location, it looks lovely, and is unusual, so, as one can easily imagine, very popular too. Next time I will book online, on their Facebook page, as I don’t want to see they don’t have any available tables.

As I couldn’t take any pictures inside as there were lots of customers, I’ve embedded a picture from their Instagram account. The boat was renovated by the owners. It is a small family-run business and it shows, as every detail is thought of and they are very friendly too.
We’ve had a late breakfast, so we’ve decided on a light lunch. Also, we knew we wanted cake and that played a part too in our choice. The broccoli and celery soup was delicious, rich, served with wholemeal bread, and vegan butter. I’ve enjoyed it a lot.
Next we had cake. After I ordered my chocolate cake I discovered it was their gluten-free option. I’m avoiding gluten-free cakes as their texture might be a bit strange and, as I happily eat gluten, there is no need for me to avoid it.
I was surprised to see how lovely the cake was, very well made, and it didn’t matter it was gluten-free. They had four cakes to choose from, and my husband picked the passion-fruit cake which was very nice too.
We both had a lovely time, the food is very good, the boat looks amazing, and the menu is diverse with good prices. I would love to go there again for lunch.
EverGreen Boat Cafe is on Bridgewater canal in Lymm, postcode is WA13 0AB. I overheard that they are serving cow’s milk for coffee, but the food is plant-based.
