Renowned Chapel Allerton brunch spot all set to open second venue

Beloved brunch venue House of Koko recently revealed exciting new plans - to open a second House of Koko venue in Roundhay’s Oakwood.

Opening on March 4th, House of Koko Oakwood will take over the venue which was Hessian, whilst maintaining its Chapel Allerton branch.

House of Koko will continue to deliver on the brand’s infamously tasty and all-encompassing brunch offering. Hessian’s staff will remain, keeping local knowledge and friendly faces for the Hessian regulars as the venue evolves into House of Koko.

By April, House of Koko intends to channel a little of Owner Rosita’s other venue, too - Distrikt bar in the city centre. They will open in the evenings, offering a supper menu of small plates alongside wine and cocktails - and perhaps even DJs.

Owner, Rosita said: “We‘re so excited to expand into another exciting Leeds foodie suburb. This up-and-coming area already has some fab foodie offerings, and we’re so happy to be joining the club.

Establishing ourselves as a regular evening venue is also an exciting new step for us, and a challenge we are ready to meet head-on!”

Showcasing Great Local Produce
House of Koko will continue their commitment to sourcing fantastic local produce in their Oakwood venue, from the coffee to the cakes to the vegetables.

Moreish cakes come courtesy of Savvy Baker, Glazed & Confused and coffee is sourced from local roastery North Star, who source their coffee beans ethically, directly from the farmers. House of Koko will be calling on even more local businesses for their input as time goes on.

Rosita adds: “Once we have the evenings up and running, hopefully in April, we’ll be using a good friend of mine - Leng Libation - for cocktails. We’ll also have some local breweries on tap and some great organic wine. We’re also planning “picnic packages” for the summer - watch this space!”

House of Koko will continue to serve up plenty of vegan options alongside both healthy and indulgent brunch dishes, from the likes of Turkish eggs to maple syrup-smothered banana and pecan pancakes. Keep your eyes peeled for the evening menu!

House of Koko will also continue to host their famous eclectic food events and pop-ups with other chefs and suppliers in their new Oakwood venue, which is looking forward to welcoming locals and HOK regulars alike, throughout the day - and now into the evening.
