Have your say

Whether it’s the traditional fry-up or the sophisticated aroma of a flat white coffee, there’s no better place than a cafe for a catch-up with friends and families.

And now we want YOU to nominate your favourite cafe in Leeds for a new Yorkshire Evening Post award to honour the creme-de-la-creme of the city’s cafe culture scene.

The search of the Cafe of the Year competition starts today as we ask you to nominate your favourite place in your community that serves up the best teas or coffees.

Nominations can come from large scale coffee franchises or the independent family-owned eatery, the choice is yours.

Maybe it is the friendly owners and staff, perhaps it is the high quality food and decor, or maybe it is just that they know just the right way to make your tea or coffee.

And now we are calling on you to enter your favourite.

Nicola Furbisher, managing editor of the YEP, said: “Cafe culture is synonyms with city living and in a city as vibrant and exciting as Leeds we have no shortage of fantastic places for tea and coffee.

“The city centre is home to dozens of such places but equally we want to hear about your favourite cafes in the suburbs and outlying areas of Leeds, where such places are true hubs that provide an invaluable contribution to our communities.

“This is a real chance for owners and customers of such places to really put your favourite cafe on the map.”

Nominations can only be made via the form that is printed in the YEP every day this week.

Voting will then remain open for the next 10 days and will close on Wednesday, July 29.

Photocopied or defaced coupons will not be accepted for this competition and any entries which are hand delivered to our offices after the closing date will be declined for entry.

All you need to provide is the name and address of your favourite cafe as well as your own contact details.
