As well as the cake and coffee being a major factor in my stop off visit, the quirkiness of the place makes it a real winner for all. Artwork across the walls fits comfortable with the atmosphere of the place and it is well decorated with wooden oak chairs and tables And the inside keeps to the same theme as the out with the modern green and white colour pattern.
But right, let's get down to business, the food. I had the Victoria Sponge which was appetizing for the first few bites, but then died off towards the end. Maybe it wasn't the right choice, but it seemed to lack the wow factor. The frothy Cappuccino was a superb cuppa. For a Coffee & Cake my bill came to £4.90. Not bad for the centre of Leeds.
It wasn't like these overrated high street Starbucks or Café Nero, who serve you an overpriced Latte and a fake smile, no it was a nice, unique, different café. The service was laid back and friendly, which added to the relaxed atmosphere of the place.
Relaxed to the point of the cliental, who were cool and vibrate – chatting about teaching and books. #Clutchingonstraws.
Anyway, if you're in Leeds and have time to kill, go show your face and buy a mug of coffee from Pickles and enjoy this gem of a café.
