Rococo Coffee House: The Best Cafe in Liverpool

Since discovering Rococo Coffee House last year, it’s been my favourite haunt for lunch with a friend or even venturing in alone on occasion. Located inconspicuously above a shop on Lord Street, you can find the entrance near Cavern Walks. Up a flight of stairs leads you into the cutest cafe with three separate sitting rooms, all decorated beautifully with chandeliers, sofas, armchairs and potted plants. Exposed brick walls contrast with patterned wallpaper and in some of the rooms, original features like ornate fireplaces remain. Usually a pretty quiet place where you can always grab a table, my lunchtime visit with Hollie was busier today which meant that I didn’t take as many photos of the interior for you as I’d have liked.

I did manage to snap some of my favourite quirkier features however, like the piano sitting next to the bar and racks to hang your coats. There was the most gorgeous looking rack next to a table of business people but I didn’t fancy having to explain why I was photographing their jackets! It has such a cosy atmosphere that I would feel no qualms about leaving my coat up here and the racks are all in sight of the tables anyway.

Now, onto the food. Beating chains like Costa and Starbucks, my small hot chocolate (topped with marshmallows and cream, of course) came in at £2.10 and with the most gorgeous, buttery toasted teacake, my total cost came to under £4.
They also serve a variety of sandwiches, soup and a great deal of homemade cakes that never fail to make my mouth water. I’d also recommend the chocolate milkshake, although they do provide tea, coffee and soft drinks too. My food always comes quickly and I’ve never had a bad experience with customer service! From reading a book in the warmth overlooking the bustle of Bold Street Christmas shopping to heart-to-hearts with my friends, it’s one of my favourite places to take a break on a trip to the shops. The Tripadvisor reviews are pretty great too!
Rococo have expanded hugely over the years since I first wrote this review, including two new seating areas and an upstairs section too which is a testament to how awesome this little place really is!
Have you ever been to Rococo? If not, I hope I’ve made you want to visit.

    For literally years, I've been walking past the sign for Rococo and thinking, "Ooh I should try that place!" And I never do…but now I think I will!
