“A special place to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

I have to say that I totally agree with ' Sarahwatsons' , the Mint cafe is an amazing place. Fantastic Lebanese food and drinks all freshly prepared on the premises, a warm welcome from the owner, and a very relaxed atmosphere. I spent several evenings sitting outside, relaxing, watching all the world go by whilst eating a plateful of lovely refreshing, energising. Probably not the cheapest or quickest place to eat in the North Lane / Headingley area , but food isn't supposed to be a race to the bottom is it. The first item on my list of places to eat next time I'm up in Leeds. Please note, as the food is freshly made, sometimes items run out, so don't leave it too late!

“Great Lunch Stop in Headingley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

We have had lunch in Mint every Sunday for a considerable number of months. The staff are always friendly and helpful and the food is invariably tasty and good value. I really can't think of anything negative to say about Mint. Excellent place, try it!

“Small but perfectly cooked.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

This tiny cafe on North Lane, Headingly puts on a vegetarian Lebanese Buffet on Monday evenings. The cafe may be small but the food is excellent and all home-cooked. We were surprised by the wide selection of dips, salads, breads and other Lebanese delicacies all washed down by a selection of teas and sof drinks. The cafe is unlicensed but operates a 'bring your own' policy. The cafe serves a selection of foods, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian during the week but the Monday night buffet is the high spot for me.
