Laynes Espresso inside cafe

Laynes Espresso

Genuinely independent, Barista owned and run coffee shop that serves up breakfast and brunch.

Laynes Espresso outside

Laynes Espresso has revolutionised the independent coffee scene in Leeds. It was one of the first to serve the very best underground coffees and teas available to the UK. As a result you’ll struggle to find a better espresso or flat white in the city; they’ve had plenty of practice!

There are gluten free, vegan friendly, and vegetarian friendly food options available.

The Food

At any one point in the morning you’ll catch the chef rustling up breakfast and brunch treats. Most of it is made in-house, including the sandwiches, brownies and pastries.

If you come a little later in the morning you can choose from the extensive brunch menu – buckwheat pancakes (gluten free), smashed avocado on toast, Turkish eggs and several styles of the big Laynes fried breakfast.

And the signature breakfast dish is a full take on the classic Full English with Yorkshire undertones, including Yorkshire bred pork patties, bacon and parmentier potatoes.

The Drink

Laynes serve up premium coffee from some of the best roasters in the UK and beyond. So keep an eye out for collaborations between suppliers and weekly specials – it’s a very dynamic coffee menu!

For those really warm days the coffee shop is on hand to serve up some cold refreshments including a slew of juices and iced lattes.

The Place

Laynes was a bit of an earth shaker when it came onto the Leeds coffee scene in 2011; from an independent angle no coffee shop had done it like this. Now spread over two floors the coffee shop has expanded with a breakfast and brunch menu to compliment those irresistible coffee blends. And if you want to keep those coffee pangs at bay in-between your visits then take the opportunity of buying some coffee beans and brewing equipment from the Laynes Baristas themselves. Also a couple of seats outside, if the sun is out.
