Popped up today after having been in here in September (which was a good visit!) but this time it was deserted... Tables and chairs upside down, doors locked, nobody home... Has it closed down?

We went for dinner with a groupon. Not a very big place and tucked away just outside Leeds centre (but easy waking distance). The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. I would definitely recommend. We had Brazilian cheese bread with Chilli Jam to share which was to die for - superb. My husband had a burger and... More

I have eaten at the Engine House a few times, but since the change of ownership, have struggled to get a decent vegetarian meal here. The menu is very meat-oriented, and lacks interesting options for vegetarians, with the exception of the veggie breakfast. Last time I went I was served avocado which was way past its best, and shouldn't have... More 

Thank AmandaWoodvale
Management response:

We are sorry you were disappointed with our food, we try to have vegetarian options on the menu as well as on our specials( risotto is always vegetarian for example). As for the timing we recommend that you pre order over the phone or email as we cannot predict how busy we will get. More

Been here a couple of times for breakfast now and have never left disappointed or hungry. My favourite is the Eggs Benedict Royal- fresh ingredients, lovely presentation and great flavours. It's the best I have ever had and you cannot go wrong for the price! We have a latte and fresh orange each which is equally as good. Lovely little... More

We used a Groupon Voucher and had lunch. From the warm welcome to the friendly goodbye, everything was perfect. Their homemade burgers are the absolute BEST!, especially the spicy jalapeno one, which I had, and even without the reduced cost with the voucher, are really good value, as is the rest of the menu including drinks prices. We will certainly... More

I have visited her a few times as the sandwiches and soups are nice to have at lunchtime however, I end up swerving this place as they take so long to take your order, and then the food has taken 30 mins to arrive at our table before- quite a long time when all you ordered was a sandwich, especially...

We had lunch in the Engine House Cafe yesterday. We had been once before, for breakfast, and the eggs Benedict was really good. Yesterday we had one of their specials - a lamb burger. It was succulent. One of the best burgers I've ever had, and I told them so! I had salad with mine and my partner chose chips.... More

We live round the corner and have been quite often. The food is excellent, high technical standard and the cakes are delicious. It's a family run business and the couple that own it are friendly. It's a relaxed environment.
