Have your say

Brunch is an American tradition that Brits have eagerly embraced - and there are plenty of spots in Leeds to indulge in eggs benedict, avocado on toast, granola or bacon sandwiches on a leisurely morning.

Ben Griffiths. Hepworth’s next to OK Comics in Thorntons Arcade. Both absolute retail winners!

Cheryl Fox. Wetherspoons eggs benedict is delicious.

Paul Stephenson. Pride and Produce in Garforth.

Elaine Wyss. Love Rouge in Headingley.

Elizabeth Whiteley. Mill Kitchen, Town Street, Farsley.

Michael Lofthouse. Caracas Grill, Duncan Street.

Claire Oldfield. Caring for Life’s Granary Cafe on Otley Old Road.

Claire Rose. The Greedy Pig on North Street - best brunch by far.

June Wheatley. Marta and Francesco Mazzella at Casa Mia every time.

Jeanette Masefield, Giraffe, Trinity Leeds.

John Benn. The Food Academy at the college’s Printworks campus is run by catering students and is great for all meals, but their brunches are really creative and there’s a big mix.

Jennifer Leek. I really like Restaurant Bar opposite the station. Lovely old building and they have great brunches, from traditional to healthy options like granola.

Hannah Simpson. The Greedy Pig in the Northern Quarter has cult status. Really welcoming atmosphere and amazing pancakes. They cater for vegetarians and everything is really good value.

Tom Horne. LS6 on Headingley Lane is very studenty and has loads of room inside. The brunch menu has interesting choices, including breakfast nachos.

Lucas O’Neill. Graze on Call Lane is a really friendly place. It’s comfy and charming and had lots of options on the menu.

Ruth Lakin. Laynes Espresso do brunch once a month in the Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen and it’s brilliant. They have really unusual choices like buckwheat pancakes, honey-roasted peaches and cream and sourdough toast.

Sally Clark. Mrs Atha’s is the best brunch in the city. Brunch is served all day and they do really good muesli.

Mike Hutchinson. Hepworth’s Deli does lovely egges benedict, and all their ingredients are locally sourced.

Colm Hagan. Browns on the Headrow is quite a luxury upmarket option, but it’s worth the money. Traditional dishes served in really elegant surroundings.
