We know how it is, being spoilt for choice when deciding where to eat in Leeds. Whether it’s a lunch break from work, or just coming up to Leeds for a visit, the entire city is your oyster. Luckily, we know a variety of lunchtime spots that are each as ideal and delicious as the last. Here’s our top picks.
Albion St, Leeds LS1 5AT
We must start with one of, if not the best burger joint in the city: MEATLiquor. It is the best place for a good, meaty sandwich. They’re big and messy, just as a good burger should be. Plus, they’ve even got a pool table, table football and a dartboard if you’ve got a little extra free time. You can find this place right outside the Trinity centre.
Granary Wharf, Wharf Approach, Leeds LS1 4BR
There’s never a bad time for an Italian, and LIVIN’Italy is as authentic as they come. A very traditional feel as soon as you walk in, the food, service and atmosphere make for a very different type of Italian lunch. The menu is huge, so you’ve got plenty of options. Plus, it’s only 30 seconds away from the train station.
18 Central Rd, Leeds LS1 6DE
Is it brunch you’re feeling? Mrs Atha’s is a very underrated and cosy café not too far from our very own Calls Wharf. It makes our list for its gorgeous coffee selection and of course, the brunch. We recommended the pancakes, they’re some of the best pancakes you’ll find in Leeds!
90 Burley Rd, Woodhouse, Leeds LS3 1JP
We find it very hard to ignore Mr T’s, a delicious takeaway just a five-minute walk from The Tannery. It’s known for attracting many big names, including a lot of the players from Leeds United football club, so it’s something to cheer about for sure. It includes all the best takeaway foods including pizzas and of course burgers, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.
100 Kirkstall Rd, Leeds LS3 1HJ
Another lunchtime spot, just opposite The Tannery, is Kirkstall Brewery. It might not sound like somewhere to get lunch, but we guarantee your mind will be changed when you try their delicious pizzas. They have a great selection of different types, toppings, and great offers, so if you’re looking for somewhere truly unique in Leeds to eat, look no further.
27 Albion St, Leeds LS1 5ER
It’s hard to choose just one eatery from Trinity Kitchen, and with a lot of them vacating to allow new stands take their place, it makes that challenge even harder. But that’s not a bad thing, there’s plenty of great choice at Trinity Kitchen, including all sorts of Asian food including Chinese, Vietnamese, and Japanese. You’ve got your burger bars, a pizza restaurant and fried chicken stands. It’s a great place to come with your colleagues if you can’t decide where to go – it caters for everyone.
