A Five for a Sandwich bar, what must you be thinking! This is a really good coffee shop & sandwich bar, forget your subway and Costa as this independent shop is by far the best we have visited. Great sandwiches, great range and well priced. Ideal for lunch time or an afternoon snack. Staff very polite and helpful. One pointer... More

So central, with great staff and delicious food. Freshly made sandwiches and great coffee. I always visit this great place when I come to Leicester. Just around the corner from the historic quarter.

Holly's is in St. Martins in the centre of Leicester,about a minutes walk from the King Richard 3rd visitor centre. The cathedral, where King Richard is buried, is 200 metres beyond the visitor centre. I have become a regular customer at Holly's for a year or two now. You're always made very welcome. It's ideal for a lunchtime snack or... More

During my first term at uni, my friend and I were looking for somewhere to warm up on a cold winter's day. We stumbled across Holly's, a small cozy cafe which looked so inviting and warm. We went in and ordered our drink of hot chocolate (and all the trimmings!) and it came in a few minutes (very quick). It... More

Whenever I'm in Leicester (or even just near Leicester) I make sure I come to Hollys. The food is amazing and SUCH good value, the staff are happy to adjust things to specific dietary needs or just fussy eaters like me and my friend. My love of this place has become a bit of a longstanding joke but I've honestly... More

Popped in for a ham and cheese toastie with a cup of tea. Not the cheapest place around and the wait time was a bit long, but that aside mustn’t grumble. Fresh ham and cheddar that was certainly not the processed rubbish you get elsewhere. The tea was well made too.

We love visiting Hollys, although this was the first time for breakfast. Both of us really enjoyed the food Bacon and mushrooms on toast for me and bacon, sausage and egg cob for my other half.
