Time Out says
Stop by this arcade café for a spot of pre-shopping breakfast. Choose from morning staples such as the full English or French toast. Seating is limited.
A great place for breakfast in the heart of the city centre, this small deli, owned by Joe Hepworth, opened in May 2012 and can be found in the lovely Thorntons Arcade. Produce is sourced from local suppliers, and it serves breakfast and brunch till noon on weekdays and all day on weekends.
Hepworth’s has a relaxed atmosphere, despite its limited seating – there are a small number of wooden tables and side benches where you can perch on high stools and watch shoppers pass by as you eat. Don't let the scuffle for tables put you off, though – its breakfast in particular deserves attention. The classic full English (£7.50) can be tailored for vegetarians, with locally reared bacon, pork sausages and black pudding traded for meat-free sausages and wilted spinach. If you have something more modest in mind, the eggs Benedict (£6) or French toast (£6.50) are good options.
