“Small and perfectly formed”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

I have been here several times for a coffee and or a sandwich. Everything about this place is excellent. You can watch the world go by with a new york kind of vibe from the inside or take away an excellent coffee, sandwich or delicious Italian pastry. Very friendly owner who is genuinely an Italian New Yorker. And its all in Chapel Allerton next to the bus stop on Harrogate Road. Just having my morning Mortadello sandwich and finely crafted Latte. No better start to the morning.

“Great coffee and guilt-free pastries”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Haven't actually had lunch here as yet, but I was really pleased to discover a place not in the city centre that does excellent coffee. I've been twice now - once with a friend and then again with husband, as he is always on the look-out for the perfect flat white. I would say the one we had today was almost perfect - could maybe have been a little stronger, but what the heck - lovely girls behind the counter, very friendly, and the little Italian bite-sized pastries are fabulous, and very cheap too. It's a bit out of the way of the main bit of Chapel Allerton - opposite the Three Hulats pub. All I can say is - walk the extra half mile or so and give yourself a treat.

“Best Roast Beef sandwich ever!!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

Myself and 3 friends called in here, purely on the off chance- as we took a wrong turn. All i can say is- it was the best wrong turn ever! We ordered coffee & various sandwiches, with various toppings and breads...simply put- they were awesome!!! Everyone's sandwiches were fantastic, and the coffee's also excellent. We also tucked into cakes afterwards- which were also top notch. Will def be back, when in Leeds.
