I should have known that this cafe would be one of those classical "fancy" cafes that thinks because they do 'special coffee' and have a 'cool' interior, they can charge twice as much as they should. The food was fine, but it wasn't anything special. I go the Laynes breakfast and everything was tiny - one shallot, one tomatoe, one... More

I already loved this place (the food, the cakes, the coffee, he vibe), but reading the owners response to the 'Bruno R' review has just made me love them more. Keep up the great work

I've been coming here years and the standard and taste of the coffee is beautiful; they truly are the best. Mrs Athas, Opposite and The Bowery are also worth mentioning for coffee, but their standard just isn't as consistent. If you're hungry definitely have something off their brunchy/lunch menu everything we've eaten from it thoroughly enjoyed.

I stopped in here with my partner and my 3 year old whilst we were shopping for a small break. My partner had been here before and said it was great so we went in for a coffee and a bite to eat. I ordered the eggs and sour bread with a black coffee and my partner got a soy... More

This cute little cafe is in a really convenient part of the city centre, near the train station, and their drinks are really good. Been back a few times. Prices aren't any worse than Costa or Starbucks with the difference being far superior coffee!

This superb coffee shops featured in the Daily Telegraph 30 best coffee shops in the U.K., so I had to find it. I am big fan of independent coffee shops/cafes and was not disappointed at all. There should be more like this! A real antidote to Costa et al, and somewhere just on the edge of the city centre, so... More

If I could, I would have given this espresso bar a 3,5 (Good) as in my opinion is something between average and very good. I visited after reading the so many reviews here on how great this place is and scoring as the second best coffee place in Leeds. Well I have to admit that I did not think there... More

I visited Laynes earlier this week, I usually stop by when in Leeds for a coffee but had a meal also today. Simply put, one of the best vegetarian full english breakfasts I've had. Very unique and creative, with interesting and vibrant flavours. The coffee, as usual, was brilliant, I'd expect nothing less from Laynes. I also had a brownie,... More

Coffee made the way it should be! My friend got me onto this place and whenever I am in Leeds now I always go. Consistently great coffee with a chilled atmosphere and also great cake. The peanut butter brownie is my fave
