Artsy coffee shop serving organic coffee and plenty for vegans and vegetarians

Housed within the same trendy premises as the Gallery at Munro House, Café 164 is an independent café that caters to a creative crowd thanks to the nearby Leeds College of Music, Northern Ballet and Yorkshire Dance. Linked with its parent business, Bakery 164, on Woodhouse Lane near Leeds Uni, the café always has freshly baked focaccia and ciabatta loaves to make delicious, fresh and substantial sandwiches.

Cakes and bakes are in plentiful supply thanks to That Old Chestnut and #Brownies, ensuring there’s always a new brownie flavour to try or healthy slice of layer cake to get stuck into. A strong ethical founding means that all the coffee used at the espresso bar is organic and direct-trade, while vegetarian and vegan diets are well catered for.

Sandwich orders can be taken and larger orders can be delivered within the city, which is perfect if you don’t have enough time during the lunch hour to walk to the bottom of the Headrow for a sit-down meal. An extension of the gallery into which 164 leads, there are works of art produced by local artists and designers hanging on the walls, with many for sale, as well as a consistently and noticeably cool music.
