I went for a Mocha and what can I say, wow! I can tell that the staff here know their coffee, this place is better than a lot of coffee places I've been to in Italy! Divine Coffee! I've lost count of the times I've burnt my tongue on a boiling hot coffee from Costa or Starbucks, but Laynes inject... More

Best coffee in Leeds. Excellent staff. Excellent, minimalist style - everything is thought through, from the beautiful script on the pastries under the glass to the kind of food available (easy to carry out, but all of it excellent and locally made, or made on the spot). The people working there know their coffee. They know how to make coffee.... More

Fantastic coffee. Really great tasty food and the training courses are worth doing if nothing else to see how much they go through to make the coffee as good as it is. Looking forward to the expanded shop already

For a city of leeds size I actually thing the great speciality coffee options are limited but these guys always stay top of their game. Very consistent and ever so slightly stand offish and hipster at first now a smile and chat is frequent.

This place has been open for quite some time now. Having visited this place many times since I can still say that without doubt they serve the best coffee in Leeds if not the North. It's hard to find a place that serves quality coffee. It's beats the pants off large chains. Standards are high and prices are very reasonable... More

I've always wondered where this little coffee shop is and did not realise it was just next to the other entrance of the train station. I popped in one day for coffee and to relax and read a book. The place looks cosy and the menu' were not fussy and nothing preconscious. I think this is just one of the... More

Ive walked past this place hundreds of times when exiting Leeds station and making my way to Costa/Nero.Decided to call in and sample their cappucino,the verdict - it was long overdue......not the cheapest at 2.70 but that first sip will never be forgotten - simply awesome coffee - notes of caramel with maybe liquorice,strong yet smooth and creamy.If you know...

Laynes is home to literally the best coffee I have ever had in my life. It's smooth, strong and tasty and puts all these coffee shops such as Costa and Starbucks to shame. If I had the money I would actually travel the 10 miles to Leeds every day for one of these epic brews. I've never eaten here but... More
