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...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!...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.
