Located on Hyde Park corner, Oranaise is one of Leeds' hidden gems. Inside this distinctly average looking building is one of the most authentic eating experiences in Leeds.
The café is decked out in Moroccan themed décor, from handmade lanterns to ornately designed mirrors.
This unsuspecting café attracts all sorts of crowds. Despite being situated in the most densely student populated area of Leeds, Oranaise is the perfect venue for family meals, dinner dates or just a meal with your friends.
During the day, Oranaise Café comes across as a chilled out, bohemian styled eatery, perfect for a coffee break or a quick bite (Their coffee is to die for!)
At night time, it plays host to a much more intimate, sophisticated and warmer atmosphere, with the warm interior colour scheme complimented by the candlelight, really making the place feel homely and authentic.
The menu at Oranaise is faultless. Whether you want an early morning feast with the full English breakfast, or you want to tuck in to some tapas with your nearest and dearest for dinner, the café caters to anyone, from graduates to grand-parents. And to top it all off, it's all for a very reasonable price.
Adding character and atmosphere to this delightfully endearing café, is the 'new world music' soundtrack to your meal, which really helps you forget that, unfortunately, you're in Leeds and not Morocco, and you'll step outside onto the busy Woodhouse Lane.
So next time you want a meal with some sophistication, foreign culture and authenticity, without wanting to splash out on haute cuisine, Oranaise Café should be at the top of your list of places to check out.
