These awesome new arrivals are on their way to Leeds.

Kanassa, Black Bean and Plantain Curry

Three new arrivals are winging their way to Leeds in the next few months and here’s everything you need to know.

Seven days. That’s all it took for us to find another 3 new openings coming soon to Leeds. There’s an American-inspired coffee shop from the other side of the Pennines and a new Colombian street food joint in one of our favourite lunchtime hangouts. But it’s not all foodie finds, because there’s a new creative space on the way too. Find out what’s in the pipeline…

Moose Coffee

Moose Coffee

Moose Coffee has made a name for itself in Liverpool and Manchester, but now they’re finally crossing the Pennines. They’re taking over the former Costa Coffee on Bond Court, so you can soon try a menu of all day favourites inspired by American and Canadian breakfast culture. From French toast and omelettes to pancake stacks, waffles and eight different takes on eggs Benedict, this is a right good feed, served with quality Arabica coffee.

Moose Coffee will open on Bond Court in Summer 2019.


Kanassa, Black Bean Arepas

Leeds Kirkgate Market’s street food hall is growing this summer with the arrival of Kanassa. It’s the brainchild of two globetrotting sisters – Anna and Beth Shindler. Inspired by their travels, they wanted to bring the vibrant flavours of Colombian cooking to Leeds and so they opened their own little street food tent. You’ve probably seen them at events across the city, but now they’ve opened found a permanent home in the market, where they’ll serve Colombian dishes like Black Bean Arepas, Guava Ceviche on Sourdough and The Kanassa BLT.

Kanassa will open in Leeds Kirkgate Market in Summer 2019.

Meanwood Makers

Meanwood Makers

Ever heard of The Green Skull? It’s a little independent design studio that’s turned upcycling into an art form – but their latest project is something else. They’ve taken on an old derelict stables and they’re going to turn it into a new creative hub called Meanwood Makers. They’re currently clearing away a decade’s worth of rubble, ready to convert the old building into sustainable studios and workshops where local artists and makers can ply their trade. Exciting stuff.

Meanwood Makers hopes to open by the end of 2019.
