Hungover, or just harbouring that morning hunger? Well, you’re in luck, Leeds is packed to the rafters with awesome places to pig out at breakfast time.

From traditional fry ups to lighter bites, take a stroll down our list of ten of the finest brekkie spots in our fine city.

Alex Miller checks them out.

The Greedy Pig

BmtDYyVCYAAix2MOh yes, we’ve started with the mothership.

How this little nugget of gold can still be best described as Leeds’ best kept secret is anyone’s guess, as it boasts some of the very best grub in town at incredibly reasonable prices.

Stuff yourself silly with one of their hunger-busting fry ups or go all Stateside with their American pancakes and Greedy Pig smoked bacon. You literally can’t go wrong.

The Greedy Pig, 58 North St, LS2 7 N, 0113 245 3596

Mrs Atha’s


Mrs Atha’s is all about three things – a warm, homely atmosphere, great coffee, and world class breakfasts.

Tucked away behind House of Fraser a little outside the city centre, it’s not exactly the sort of place you’ll necessarily stumble across, but if you do, there’s a fair chance you’ll never look back when it comes to filling your stomach first thing.

It’s kooky, cosy and a little cramped, but that all adds to the charm

Mrs Atha’s, Central Road, LS1 6DE


CDgHjtaWoAEQGixA firm favourite of Leeds’ shopping fraternity, Browns provides those with a taste for the finer things in life with a top drawer breakfast option.

Posher than posh, their full English comes with Cherry Orchard sausages, confit tomato and toasted sourdough bread no less, and for a truly classy start to the day, there’s even a lobster benedict to consider.

Oh, and their breakfast smoothies are different level.

Browns, 70-72 The Headrow, The Light, LS1 8EQ, 0113 243 9353


CE3z5D-W8AMY5HiCall Lane really is all things Leeds. It’s smart, young and fun, and whilst many know it as one of the go-to areas for a night out, thanks to the good folk at Graze, it’s also a savvy choice when looking for a spot of breakfast.

Graze is a homely cafe designed with similar ideals to that of Mrs Artha’s, with a friendly atmosphere, quick grub turnaround and quality in spades.

From your simple sandwich fare to a selection of the finest pastries north of Paris, it caters for all.

Graze, 43 Call Lane, LS1 7BT, 0113 245 0295

Out of the Woods


Another one of Leeds’ underrated gems, Out of the Woods is a chic little independently-run cafe with a wonderfully health-conscious take on the most important meal of the day.

Out are the monster fry-ups, in are continental favourites ranging from pastries to croissants with dollops of fresh yoghurt besides.

It’s another cafe boasting morning-making coffee, too, with a delicious range available.

Out of the Woods, 2 Watermans Place, 3 Wharf Approach, LS1 4GL, 0113 245 4144
