    Question Cousins Cake Shop

    Anybody remember the chain of Cousins cake shops, in particular the one on Church Street / North John St?

    I think it closed in the early 80's but the sign was still around until the development of Liverpool One. Is now Costa Coffee.

    Cheers.

    Used to be known as 'Cousins Corner' a favourite meeting place, similiar to meeting under the clock at Lime Street Station or under Lewis's statue. I always thought they should have kept that sign.........however thats progress.

    Anywhere's better than Sayers.
    I don't know why they've outlasted the others.

    There are still a few shop doorways with a "C" in them.

    Who remembers Wallers?

    I agree , Sayers should be outlawed . I remember Mitchells , they made gravy pies , it was in Anfield and the ques would be around the corner .

    I thought the 'C' stood for Costigans , the C was normally tiled into the entrance of there shops.

    Cousins were famous for their Strawberry Tarts, not like the processed crap from Greggs and Sayers.

    Liverpool had a few chains of cake shops over the years, Kirkland and Jennings(Fly in the Loaf pub is one of their old shops),Frances Mckays,Shaws,Sykes,Scotts.Lunts, All went to the wall.
    Yet we have outside firms with branches in Liverpool now such as Gregs,Greenhaughs,

    Speaking of smaller cake shops, a Satterwaites has opened in the Strand. My mum always used to love the pork pies from there and I always used to get the marzipan creatures they sold oh and rum truffles
