The decor may be minimal and the space small, but the coffee is excellent. House espresso is roasted by London’s Square Mile, and there are regular guest beans.
An artisan roasted blend, expertly made from independent roasters, will most likely put Laynes Espresso on any coffee lover’s list. Owner Dave Olejnik learnt his trade with Leeds coffee pioneer Opposite, and Laynes has become a caffeine lover’s haven since its opening in 2011.
Its location close to Leeds railway station makes it popular with commuters, city workers and shoppers. It’s small in size and, apart from the artwork that decorates the walls, minimal in terms of decor, but what it lacks in space it makes up for in the quality of its brews.
The house espresso is roasted by London’s Square Mile, and guest coffee from notable roasters such as The Barn and Workshop regularly show up on the menu. If you’d prefer brewed coffee, there’s AeroPress, or you can opt for a pour-over. There are also plenty of sweet and savoury treats to choose from, including locally made pastries and cakes, and homemade sandwiches.
