Leeds City Museum Café

Enjoy a break from sightseeing in the Museum Café. Our independent café serves a range of lunch options, cakes and great coffee in our iconic Leeds City Museum building.

Relax with friends, catch up on emails or meet with colleagues away from the office. All of our products are locally sourced and we’re proud to be part of the thriving independent coffee scene in Leeds.

Our Museum café is a great space to bring children too, with a casual play area and plenty of space for your buggy, rucksack, favourite toy… and anything else you might need!

On brighter days we offer outdoor seating and a great location for admiring the impressive architecture of Millennium Square.
