3 Leeds Brunch Spots You Need To Try


Ahhhh, brunch. Who doesn't love it?! I feel like brunch is a still a fairly recent trend, but I'm a huge fan. To me it is the ultimate weekend feature - it signifies lazy mornings in bed and afternoons that revolve around lots of food and coffee. So basically, perfection.

There are new brunch spots popping up all over the city and I've been slowly but surely trying them all out - I'm becoming quite the expert. So I feel pretty qualified when I tell you that these are the 3 best Leeds brunch spots - you need to give them a try if you're local!

1) Mill Kitchen

First on my list is Mill Kitchen which is actually based in Farsley as opposed to Leeds city centre. It had to be top of my list because it is without a doubt my favourite Sunday brunch haunt!

The name is fitting as it is set in old mill and it is the most beautiful place. Think high ceilings, gorgeous light and lots of Scandi features. The menu changes seasonally but everything I've ever eaten there has been delicious, fresh and beautifully presented.

We are super lucky that this place is walking distance from our house, but the food alone is well worth a drive out. Plus, there always seems to be lots of cute dogs and babies in there which is a definite bonus!

2) Ox Club

You might have heard about Ox Club already as it is a definite Leeds bloggers fave! Set inside the totally Instagrammable Headrow House, this is THE place to kick the weekend off in style.

The brunch menu is small but perfectly formed - my personal faves are the steak with cheddar eggs and the ricotta pancakes which are literally to DIE FOR.

The team at Ox Club also make a great coffee (or a mean Bloody Mary if you're still shaking off the previous night's antics!). It's not a huge place, so be sure to book ahead if you can.

3) Shears Yard

Shears Yard is a brunch to save for a special occasion, and that's because it's bottomless. For £25 you get to choose a meal from the brunch menu and drink as much as you like from their specially selected drinks menu. There is a time limit on the table, but with prosecco, Aperol spritzes and Bloody Mary's all included it's quite a bargain!

I visited with my friends when Steph was over from Aus and it was such a perfect start to our girly day out - it felt much more celebratory than simply going out for lunch.

The food was really gorgeous (as you would expect from Shears Yard) and it's the sort of place you can get a little bit dressed up for, making it perfect for birthdays and other celebrations.

What do you think is the best Leeds brunch spot? I'm always looking for new places to try!
