Definitely the best brunch place in Leicester. This was my 3rd visit and will definitely keep visiting. The American pancakes are delicious there, but so hard to finish by yourself. Def a little gem in Leicester and I would definitely recommend visiting.

We went and had eggs Benedict and the pancakes and they were very tasty. Kai has a very chilled out casual vibe and we can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu.
