The place to meet, eat & rest your feet


Our Cafés


Bringing the craft to the customer, the cafés are the heartbeat of our business. Whether it's milky coffees or malted milks, vanilla slices or vanilla ice cream, for over 80 years we have been offering our customers a place to meet, eat and rest their feet. 

We operate two cafés in the heart of Leicester. Churchgate seats around 230 and is also home to a bakery shop selling our fresh bread and pastries to take home.  Fox Lane seats around 110 customers and houses our head office.

Both our cafés offer free wi-fi – best enjoyed with coffee and cake!




Fresh cream cakes, pasties or pastries. buns or brownies, ice cream sodas and sundaes.

Linger over a latte or kick back with a knickerbocker glory......


Across our menu we offer hand made, artisan and local foods. Our coffee is specially blended and roasted by small independent roasters. Our cakes are, of course, made by our own fair hands at our craft bakery. Our dairy ice cream is made to our secret recipe by our Brucciani cousins in Morecombe. 

You will not find a fresher and finer cup, cake or confection. 




Award winning quiches, baked potatoes & savoury pastries

are available all day (or at least once they are out of the ovens). 

Toast, tea cakes or bacon rolls make sure we have breakfast covered. 

Sandwiches & salads are hand made at the bakery (using bread baked that morning)

& delivered direct to the cafés before 10am. 

You will not get a fresher or better in Leicester.
