A little gem within Leeds city centre…
My Leeds Eats section on my blog is fast becoming my favourite posts to write about. It’s an excuse to visit all the amazing places we have here in Leeds and show them off to you lovely lot. Fettle cafe is one of them. It’s a place I’ve been to once or twice but never thought to mention them on the blog. Well, today we change all that. So let me introduce you to Fettle cafe Leeds…
Located on Great George Street (I seriously need to make a map up of these places so it’s easy for you all to find) Fettle cafe Leeds is a fabulous place. A little off the beaten track, but well worth the treck. It’s all about great food and great atmosphere, and boy does it deliver! The interiors are bloody gorgeous. White-washed walls, natural woods juxtaposed with some harsher fabrics and concrete tables. A minimalistic Scandi feels with pops of pastel colours. It’s a cool modern space, a great addition to the city centre.
FETTLE CAFE LEEDS.
It’s their food that’s the show stopper here. I have to admit, this is not the place for gorging on stacks of pancakes drizzled in syrup. But that’s perfectly fine because you’re not coming here for that. Their motto on food is all about healthy, delicious goodness. This is the place you go to when you need a coffee, but you also really want to feed your body some goodness.
Coffee wise, it is delicious. I’m a big fan of their flat whites and chai lattes. They also do an excellent selection of their speciality teas. For an absolute treat, you have to try their house smoothies and their juices. Very refreshing, exactly what you need for an early start to the day.
BRUNCH AT FETTLE.
Brunch is utterly delicious. There is both a brunch and a breakfast menu and you can’t go wrong with picking a dish from either one. On our visit when I went to take the pictures, both Laura and I chose to go for the avocado on toast with halloumi. If I wasn’t vegetarian I would 100% try the breakfast roll, that sounds like it would be an utter treat! When I go back next time, I’m 100% going to order the power smoothie and the black rice pudding.
In terms of the brunch menu, the cornbread waffles sound like they would be a delicious Sunday brunch treat, as well as the Scandi meatballs. Along with the brunch menu, there is a selection of cocktails and drinks that sound like they could complement each dish beautifully. Who wouldn’t want a rose & hibiscus prosecco during brunch.
FINE AT FETTLE CAFE LEEDS.
Fettle also offers a fine dining option, something that I have yet to try, but Lee and I planning on trying out soon. It happens every Thursday, Friday and Saturday and the menu is somewhat intriguing. Four courses, some delicious wine and some great atmosphere.
Overall, Fettle is somewhere I need to come back to more often. Because it’s not directly in the city centre, it’s not often my first choice for brunch, which is regrettable because it’s delicious. It’s definitely worth the extra five-minute walk and I’m 100% going to start going there more often.
