Nice and peaceful here, and while the menu looked like typical museum cafe fare, the quality was a cut above.

We had a nice day looking over the museum and finished it off with tea and cakes in the cafe. Welcome friendly service and good quality produce.

Visited today with a group of young people and even though staff were standing around doing nothing the youngsters had to clean the tables. The floors were filthy and at £1.35 for a can of coke it would have been cheaper to go somewhere else.

I've been here numerous times, usually with friends who have kids, after visiting the museum. It's overpriced, and really not very good.

..... to describe my experience here. Awful. Everything I wanted to eat was off the menu because they had run out. I had to settle for a mature cheddar sandwich but even then the bread I requested had run out. The cheddar was certainly not mature, having little more taste than ordinary supermarket cheese. The price of £4.25 made me... More

We popped into the cafe on the lower ground floor of the Leeds City Museum to have some lunch and as a refuge from a rainstorm that was about to come down. I suspect this cafe has recently been refurbished and rebranded, because it’s now called “The Corner Cafe”. In summary, the food and drink here was nice enough, but... More
