It served a range of hot and iced drinks, as well as smoothies and a small food menu with grilled cheese and fresh sandwiches that were ideal for people on the go. 

The coffee shop first opened in Call Lane in 2016. Over the years, the business expanded and its owners opened a rooftop site in East Parade and more recently, a roastery in Armley, which welcomed its first customers a few weeks ago.
