Updated: 24 July 2017
Waking up to a hangover on a Sunday morning, what’s the first thing that pops into your head? If it’s tucking into a traditional English breakfast, you’re in luck! We’ve pulled together a list of the very best places in Leeds to get stuck into a hearty plate of sausages, egg and bacon – or vegetarian or vegan options, if you prefer. Here are seven breakfasts in Leeds worth getting out of bed for.

Layne’s Espresso

Cafe, Contemporary, $$$
Save to wishlist

If you’re seeking a vegetarian English breakfast, Layne’s is perhaps your best option in the city centre. Their delectable English breakfast shuns the usual suspects in favour of braised beans, sourdough toast, poached egg, roasted tomato and shallots, Mayfield cheese and a chestnut and lemon patty. Carnivores will be thankful that bacon comes as an optional extra, allowing everyone to enjoy this delicious take on a classic breakfast.

The Greedy Pig

Cafe, Contemporary, $$$
Save to wishlist

Famed throughout Leeds for their breakfast and brunch menu, The Greedy Pig are proud that most of their ingredients are sourced locally. There are two options for a full English breakfast – the classic or a vegetarian option. Expect all the usual suspects – sausage, egg, bacon, beans and grilled tomato – with a few twists on the classics including their own recipe black pudding and spicy cornbread hash browns.

Riveresque

Cafe, Contemporary, $$$
Save to wishlist

If you’re looking for a fry-up that doesn’t cost the earth, Riveresque’s cheap and cheerful menu is the perfect option. The Full English comes as standard or as a smaller option and is even available in a ciabatta if you’re in a rush and want to eat on the go. Don’t be fooled by the incredibly generous prices – the small English breakfast is larger than you expect with two each of bacon, sausage and eggs, while the full version is absolutely gigantic!

Food Academy

Cafe, Contemporary, $$$
Save to wishlist

Located at Leeds City College, the Food Academy is an ingenious conception that allows students to train in hospitality while serving delicious food to the public. Their impressive brunch menu includes a delicious traditional Full English breakfast, as well as a tasty vegetarian option. Breakfast dishes are only served until 11.30am, slightly early than most other places so get there early to ensure that you don’t miss out.

Moments

Cafe, Contemporary, $$$
Save to wishlist

This friendly little café only has a small menu, but their English breakfast is one of the best in Leeds, so what else would you want? The tasty Toulouse sausages set this breakfast apart from the local produce served elsewhere in the city, and there are a variety of options for how you prefer your eggs. We guarantee that you’ll be asking for the recipe for the smoked bacon beans after you’ve finished your plate.

well this was amazing

Filmore and Union

Cafe, Contemporary, $$$
Save to wishlist

Located in Moortown, this small café and deli is a great place for enjoying a healthy breakfast without venturing into the city centre. Their extensive brunch menu offers many distractions, but if you’re after a traditional breakfast their full English won’t disappoint. Expect gluten-free pork and herb sausages alongside all of the usual accompaniments, eggs cooked how you like them and homemade toasted bread.
