Popular Italian coffee shop to open third site

POPULAR Italian coffee shop Gran Caffè  is set to open a third Liverpool site, this time in the south of the city.

Owned by brothers Paolo and Donato Cillo, Gran Caffè first opened in Williamson Square more than 10 years ago.


Since then the family business has enjoyed fantastic growth, opening another coffee shop on Duke Street in December 2023.


The third Gran Caffè is the first to open outside of Liverpool city centre, on Lark Lane, with an even further developed menu and all day offering.


Gran Caffè will serve its signature breakfast pastries that are handcrafted in-house and baked fresh each day by their talented pastry team that is headed up by Donato’s wife Antonietta, as well as a selection of brunch dishes. 


Opening in late Spring, Gran Caffè is renowned for its Italian coffee, delicious sandwiches served on their homemade sourdough bread, and its award-winning, artisan gelato that’s made in-house everyday.


Gran Caffè, which translates to ‘Great Coffee’, was created by Paolo and Donato out of a love for the rich atmosphere that can be found in every Italian coffee house, transporting the strong coffee culture of the Italian homeland to the city of Liverpool. 


The Cillo family are passionate about sharing an authentic Italian experience with their guests, serving an array of Italian delicacies that are hand crafted each day and supplied by their family members, making it a true, family-run business.


Their brother freshly bakes their sourdough and pinsa focaccia, and Donato’s wife, Antonietta, creates delicate cakes and traditional gelato each day. 


All ingredients for Gran Caffè’s dishes are provided by their sister’s A Tavola da Maria Delicatessen and their coffee is ground from beans from their family’s roastery, Torrefazione Lucana, in Potenza. 


Renowned as a pasticceria – which translates to cake and pastry shop – Gran Caffè has been serving its Italian delicacies in Liverpool for over 10 years.  Originally opening as P&D Deli, the venue underwent a renaissance to reflect the finest quality ingredients used as well as the varied selection of traditional Italian coffees served within the venue.
