Time Out says

On the western side of King's Cross Station's departures concourse, under John McAslan’s lattice roof, this branch of the Leon chain is open early until late, throughout the week. Seating stretches around the side and behind the tills, with further tables on the concourse itself. 

The menu is the same as most of the other branches, with breakfasts (toast and marmalade, pain au chocolate, porridge, bacon and egg muffins) and all-day options (chilli chicken hot boxes, shredded kale and peanut salads, sweet potato falafel wraps) alongside cakes, cookies and pastries. 

Eight coffees and six teas feature on the drinks menu, with milk-free shakes, fruit juices and smoothies also available. There is a special children's menu, too. 



Address: Western Concourse, King's Cross Station
King's Cross
Opening hours: 6am-1am Mon-Fri; 7am-1am Sat; 7.30am-1am Sun

Slightly fancier twist on high street chain store food. I love the fish finger wrap!


I usually love Leon but today's experience wasn't the best. I went to kings cross to get a train and the restaurant is meant to open at 6am but they didn't open their doors until 6.15am. The service was definitely not with a smile and the server dropped my porridge on the floor whilst it was still in the bag and handed it over with no apology or offer to replace. As you can imagine the porridge was a mess when I took the lid off and lucky I picked up extra napkins. The service needs to be improved even at 6am in the morning but the porridge did taste great, so that was some consolation. I went for the new Ruby Berry and would gag again but maybe from a different Leon branch.


I actually went to the Leon in Euston but doesn't seem to be listed. 

I love Leon - its concept and menu, but sadly often find myself disappointed either in the service or the execution of the dishes.

Any outlet in a train station needs to be hot on its speed of service in my opinion.  I walked in with about 20 mins to spare for my train. Place was fairly empty - but I was third in the queue. There appeared to be 3 people serving behind the counter but only one serving actual customers. This sort of thing winds me up - there was a fair bit of chatting and apparent discussion of other matters with little focus on the customers in the queue. Anyway when I got my grilled chicken superfood salad it was delicious and filling and I was glad I bothered but I just wish they would be a bit more attentive. Some branches of Leon are amazing in that respect - this one often leaves me wanting.


Not bad - tasty lamb koftas on top of tonnes of nice stodgy rice with a big side of coleslaw and plenty of tomato salsa and creamy sauce. Plenty of food but priced at £7 you would expect there to be.  Not as good quality as I have had before - I think the charm might be wearing thin. Not particularly interested in going back but there wasn't anything BAD about it!
