hepworth’s deli, leeds

by thinhungrygirl

visiting another city can be quite stressful – especially when it comes to finding somewhere to eat!

luckily, leeds has some great places hidden away down its famous lanes. our current favourite (based on two trips to the city) is hepworth’s delicatessen.

needing some fuel before a huge day shopping for my birthday presents (only 2 weeks to go!), we decided to visit for breakfast/brunch. the atmosphere is really relaxed, with only a small amount of seating available, meaning service never appears rushed and you get their full attention.

decor is fairly rustic, with wooden tables and large hampers of local goods available to purchase, and the menus are both on large blackboards and clipboards on the tables.

l always on the hunt for a sugary start to my day, i went for the french toast.

it was the perfect portion size and i devoured it all. there was just enough syrup and sugar, with a savoury undertone from the eggy bread that balanced it out. perhaps there could’ve been an option to add some fruit – though i’m sure if i had asked, i would’ve been given something!

if you’re going to leeds, add this place to your list – and try to resist walking away with half of the produce.
