Rococo is a beautiful coffeehouse smack-bang in the centre of town. It has beautiful décor, comfortable seating, and tasty food, but it’s easy to miss Rococo. That is part of its charm though, a pretty popular hideaway that still feels like a little bit of a secret. Once you know it’s there, you can look up at Rococo with a knowing smile, that it’s one of ‘your places’ to cherish. Serving up great tea and coffee, and fantastic simple café dishes to fill the belly and recharge you for the rest of the day, Rococo is a splendid place to visit.
The ornate mirrors and chandeliers point to the Rococo-style that inspires this vintage coffee house that’s hidden away above the busy main shopping streets of Liverpool. After venturing up the steep steps off Lord Street, you come out into the main café area and counter, with a range of comfortable sofas and greenery, a busy but comfortable atmosphere, but that’s not the only room. From here you can walk on down the corridor, where there are other side rooms, and then an even bigger room at the very back of the building. There is also upstairs seating to add even more intrigue. You could genuinely get lost in Rococo
Rococo has been a staple and a favourite for many years in the city centre, and despite its size it is almost always packed out, which shows you how good the food is. It offers up simple café food, done well. Expect salads and soups, jacket potatoes with classic fillings like cheese and beans, tuna, Branston pickle and others. The sandwiches and panini (you choose your panini on your way to the counter, and they cook it through to order, so you can always see what it left during the busy periods) options use some quality ingredients, with our personal favourite the Chorizo and Mozzarella. The menu is simple, clear, and offers delicious café food that will fill you up to get on with the rest of your day.
Tea, coffee, and hot chocolate ranges in price from £1.70 to £5 depending on the type and size. The breakfast menu is between £2 and £5, whilst the choice of panini and sandwiches are all priced just under a fiver.
