The Food

The key ingredient – bread – is made fresh every day onsite. First developed back in 1994, the recipe (only 5 simply ingredients) has been perfected to compliment one thing… the filling in a sandwich.

And each filling, a combination of Italian and Middle Eastern flavours, is made with quality and care. Checkout the the 164 sandwich gallery to really appreciate what’s on offer.

The Drink

When it comes to drinks Café 164 is a purveyor of coffee – the Italian kind – and one that comes more full bodied and richer in flavour. At the Headingley café the focus is on the lighter seasonal blends, supplied by guest roasters. If you’re not after a surprise grab a cup of the house blend – it goes really well with the food! And in the summer months you can grab an iced latte or iced americano.

The Place

Café 164 Headingley is one of three family run cafes open in Leeds. Munro & Woodhouse Lane are where you can find the other two. Ellie and Matthew Andrews are the brains behind the 164 family. And have been building it since 1994.

Community is a central pillar to the success to date. Ellie and Matthew have created warm and welcoming cafes that are perfect for those with little or loads of time. This communal openness can be found in how the food is made, like in the open kitchen in Headingley where the customer can see their bread literally baking.

What’s more is whatever sandwiches are left at the end of the day, are donated to food and homeless charities.

Where to Park

The nearest free parking can be found on St Anne’s road.
