    Bruschetta Cafe review
    I cannot recommend this cafe enough! They went above and beyond with their service yesterday to myself and 16 other colleagues on our annual day out. Their service was impeccable, food delicious and drinks very good indeed. Lots of choice too. The staff were friendly and really helpful. To say there were so many of us, they did amazing! Thank you!

    Victorian grandeur
    An amazing building demonstrating fine Victorian engineering. The oval dome is a work of art in itself. Re-purposed with some skill as a set of boutiques and eateries it is the building itself which is the marvel and you can just hope that the commercial enterprises keep the place going.

    Cool Historic Building
    A magnificent historical building repurposed for modern life. Beautiful architecture and important history celebrated alongside arts and crafts with cafes and souvenir shops. Really worth a visit

    Leeds Corn Exchange
    A fabulous historic building that Leeds is still lucky to have. At one stage there were plans to demolish this building. It is a fine building both internally and externally. Independent shops a plenty here too. Take a visit here. 😊

    Great shops - refreshing
    I was visiting from London, my friend who lives up here in Leeds and I absolutely loved it. It was so refreshing seeing independent artists / businesses. I could’ve spent all day in here. We almost went into every shop - spent the whole morning at the Corn exchange. I got lots of bits for myself and my friends cool art pieces (prints), a candle, and a cute lil wooden plant pot. Also it’s such a stunning building

When it was no longer required for its original use this building was converted to a space for small independant shops and workshops. The structure has a magnificent dome, and is beautifuly constructed inside. I hope that it is well enough supported that it will be prewserved.

Love the shops in here, day out slightly marred by the stupid petty seating policy at the coffee shop where they don't let you sit where you want. The waiter asked us to move twice and it wasn't even full so made no difference. Seats they moved us to were hard and cold - recommend you find somewhere more warm and accommodating.

Approaching from the north side, there was just a small door leading to steep steps. It was only curiosity that led us to go up, but once inside it was amazing. A lovely round hall with a superb glass roof, and shops all around on both levels. We had a drink at the cafe in the centre, and a browse around the small shops, most of which are speciaility shops, and not cheap.

We left through the main entrance, which has a lovely facia and is much more of how we expected it to look.

Built in the mid-19th century, this circular Victorian-style building houses a number of independent fashion stores among others. It is worth noting the interior of the dome. It is located near the train station.

My twin brother Stephen and I chanced upon this great looking building as we were pub hopping around this part of town and what a great find.
Leeds Corn Exchange was constructed between 1861 - 1863 from designs from architect Cuthbert Broderick, a stunning Grade I listed building that is most definitely a well known landmark in the city of Leeds .
Now converted for speciality retail outlets, I just love the look of the building, it commands your attention, its most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area and easy to locate along Call Lane.

BRUSCHETTA - £2.20 for a tea bag slopped into a small cup of water. Utter rubbish. Probably the worst tea experience I've ever encountered. Note even great service.
Never going back to this cafe.

How about a tea pot with the offer of extra water. Wow, is that too difficult?

Yes, probably is for Bruschetta.

The circular domed building is a notable landmark in Leeds. The interesting interior of the building is well worth seeing. There are a few independent shops and a café.
At the moment the building is under utilised and not helped by the extensive roadworks in the immediate area.

Another grand building in the city centre with a most amazing ceiling. The exchange is full of small independent shops of a wide mix. It was designed by the same person that designed the town hall and built in 1861 to 1863
