The best breakfasts and brunches in Leeds
Time Out's pick of Leeds' best places for breakfast and brunch, from greasy spoons to swanky restaurants
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. 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.
