    Archive | New Independent Coffee Shop in Leeds

    The longest and most boring stretch of my bike ride to and from work is along Kirkstall Road. I can cycle for minutes thinking there’s no life to it. Behind the scenes and if you looks closer, there totally is! Most popular is likely to be Temple Coffee & Donuts. Although hidden, it’s attracting people to the area which is great. Starting to bridge its gap from city centre, on the opposite end of the road, Archive* has opened up. I spotted it from the sidelines during its development and not long after it opened up, I was excited to check it out. You bet I love the yellow, black…

    Bottomless Brunch at Pieminister

    Bottomless brunch is so popular now that chains like Pieminister is jumping on the bandwagon. Bottomless brunch at Pieminister* is great! You get a bigger portion than at other places, the equal amount of alcohol as anywhere else, but all to a more affordable price. Sure, it might not be as instagrammable as avocado on toast (although this is an option here) but a breakfast pie fills you up and lines your stomach for the bottomless booze. Definitely a great alternative if you want to spend less money and walk away tipsy but not over do it. Leeds is one of the Pieminister cities offering bottomless brunch at the moment.…

    Fire Lake Restaurant at Radisson Blu in Leeds

    I have mentioned Fire Lake restaurant in a previous post here, when I went restaurant hopping in The Light. I’m sure I also mentioned that it’s a hotel restaurant, belonging to Radisson Blu. Now, the thought of going to a hotel restaurant for a meal might put you off but I’m hoping this post will change that. More and more hotels, at least in Leeds, are stepping up their restaurant game. Soap Factory for example doesn’t send that hotel vibe, neither does @LS1 which I’ll feature in a post next week and from what I’ve seen in pictures, Dakota’s restaurant and food looks amazing! This also applies to Radisson Blu’s…

  • The Lost and Found Leeds Club

    Drinking and Dining at The Lost and Found

    Wow! Such an impressive venue! Leeds’ second The Lost and Found Restaurant has recently opened up on Albion Place and it’s stunning! I’ve never been to this venue before so I can’t say how it used to look but it doesn’t matter, only how it’s presented now. The Lost and Found have done an amazing job decorating. It’s an eclectic interior style where tropical meets apothecary. You can imagine my fascination over it being obsessed with skulls and flamingos, although the tropical theme is only portrayed through massive plants furniture with a forest feel. The Lost and Found Cocktails Benedict Pike’s The Lost and Found is set across two floors.…

  • Hyde Park Book Club

    Breakfast at Hyde Park Book Club

    I used to live in the LS6 area and on my weekend morning walks, I’d always pass the old petrol station turned in to a fancy dress shop. I always had the intention of coming back during opening hours to have a mooch around, but I never did. Since moving away, the fancy dress shop has gotten smaller and smaller and in conjunction, the Hyde Park Book Club has opened up. A cafe and events space all in one. Think Brudenell Social Club but more a day time venue. A couple of weekends ago, I was invited to come down and try their breakfast menu. If you don’t mind me…
