Based in Leeds, but exploring Berlin for the next two months.

The Smoothie Company, opposite The Parkinson building, has become my go-to place for post-exam or post-assignment relaxation. After a particularly arduous test one day, my friend knew exactly what would cheer me up.
The Smoothie Company provides healthy, fresh options for lunch and snacks as well as hot drinks and, obviously, the smoothies that give the cafe its name.
There is a standard menu, however, some interesting variations can often be found. For instance, have you ever tried a banana and nutella bagel? You'll be pleasantly surprised. The healthy options are also continued with the sandwiches, with falafel and haloumi sandwiches on the menu.
As for the smoothies, non-dairy and drinks made with milk are on offer. They are made fresh before you and contain so much fruit, you could believe that all colds and sneezes have been banished from your body in one gulp.
