The Arch Cafe

The Arch Cafe


The Arch Cafe is a new and exciting venture in Leeds City Centre, and is a cafe with a social conscience. Serving seasonal, responsibly sourced food and drink, working with some of the region's best local and independent suppliers.

The cafe occupies a Grade 2 listed building formally a Charity School built by local benefactor John Harrison. The building now called the Bradbury Building, is the newly refurbished head office of Age UK Leeds who own the cafe and all the profits from the cafe go directly to support their work with older people.

The Arch Cafe serves great coffee, Yorkshire tea, sandwiches, lunches, breakfasts and plenty of home baked cakes. They also do a delicious takeaway range of sandwiches and drinks which you can either choose when you call in or phone in your order to collect later.

Free Wi Fi and a great outdoor seating area which provides a tranquil and green space away from the hustle and bustle of Leeds City Centre is also available.

The Arch Cafe has a large meeting room for hire and they can provide refreshments throughout the day, breakfast meetings or business lunches. The cafe and meeting room are also available in the evening for private and business events.
