'Great find! After googling for a good coffee in Leeds we came across this bar so decided to give it a try. Being Italian I was a little sceptical about the authenticity but they are real! Great caffe', like being italy with original cakes'

Best Coffee in Leeds by a long mile. This place is always buzzing and the staff are a great & knowledgable bunch. Not only is the coffee top notch, the food is delicious too! I won't go for a coffee anywhere else!

I was providing support for my wife who was doing the Abbey Dash. Great coffee and perfect Pain au raisin! Friendly professional staff. Thank you 👍🏼 🙂

Very unassuming cafe with modern clean lined decor in The Light and a very calming atmosphere. Real Italian barista coffee with an excellent choice including some I had not heard of. I imagine this is as close to a real Italian coffee place as you...More

This place is always buzzing and has an amazing selection of homemade interesting treats. We loved the lemon Cannoli and the Pastel de Nata. Lovely flat white - this week is a top notch coffee shop. See you again soon.

Hip, chic, fantastic pastries but SO slow Seriously, felt like they’re doing me a favour parting out a coffee... Needs to up its game

I had a long black and an Italian pastry (can't recall name but there is a good selection). Very good and I will return, though I think Laynes Espresso pips it on the long black front.

Yes, we've been back again - and the coffee is still first class! Every coffee we've drunk here has been spot-on, but this time I tried the Forte! Wow!

Don't expect a great deal of food options but that doesn't matter the coffee is FANTASTIC! Lots of small pastries to have too.
