If you love drinking brilliant coffee, eating lovely homemade fresh food, listening to random music or hanging out on fat sofas looking at pictures - especially drinking brilliant coffee - then we have a place for you in one of our hearts.

We now have 2 hearts. Our original Leeds University site (yes, Opposite Leeds University) was built to bring fairtrade coffee, healthy affordable food and a community space for all the lonesome art students to Leeds. Still an iconic hangout, and famous for chocolate brownies and staff that are mad as badgers.

Our new, grown up shop in the Victoria Quarter brings sophistication in coffee slurping to the North with seasonal espresso and single origin filter coffees from around the world. A place where true connoisseurs can gather and experience enlightenment. Yes, we still have homemade brownies here too.

Different shops for different people, but then you wouldn’t want everywhere to be the same would you?
