Here are our picks

  • 1. LS6


    LS6, 16 Headingley Ln, Leeds, LS6 2AS - Visit now

    This independent café doesn’t just have mind-boggling decor – expect flamingo wallpaper and mannequin parts – it also boasts the best breakfasts in town. It’s been a locally-loved fixture for decades, with the likes of the Kaiser Chiefs, Mighty Boosh creator Julian Barratt and Corrine Bailey-Rae all passing through, or in Corrine’s case, even working front of house.

  • 2. Riveresque

    Riveresque Cafe Leeds

    Riveresque, 15 Bridge End, Leeds, LS1 7HG - Visit now

    Unassuming cafe Riveresque is a breath of fresh air amongst all the other bolshy headline-grabbing breakfast cafes in Leeds. Come here for their ridiculously big full breakfast, stay for the glorious riverside view.

  • 3. Greasy Pig


    Greasy Pig, 74 Victoria Rd, Leeds, LS6 1DL - Visit now

    Breakfasts don’t get much bigger than those on offer at the aptly-named Greasy Pig. Whether it’s pancakes you’re after, or a mighty full English, it’s all here and it’s all delicious.

  • 4. Fettle Cafe

    Fettle Cafe, 73 Great George St, Leeds, LS1 3BR - Visit now

    Fancy some clean-eating? Fettle Cafe, near Leeds General Infirmary is the one for you. You’ll find the standard full english, along with sausage and bacon rolls, but the vegetarian breakfast is where it shines – expect wilted spinach, confit tomato, eggs and tofu (or halloumi, if you’re feeling decadent).
