I've recently started working within the same building as this little coffee shop and needless to say it's very hip and suited for this area of Leicester. In the heart of the LCB building which had a renovation some years ago, includes what seems like...More

I work round the corner from Grays and go there at least twice a week. The menu changes almost every day, but the quality of food is consistently amazing. There is no better place to go for lunch in Leicester. The fact that they also...More

Had a business meeting at the LCB depot on Monday, we pre-booked a light lunch. When it arrived it was very well presented and very tasty. Lovely little cafe with very friendly people. I would highly recommend.

Grays is a hidden gem, and perhaps overlooked by many just simply because they don't know it's there! Located at Leicester's LCB Depot, Grays put on a spectacular menu of lunch time treats full of flavour and innovative combinations. Best burgers, awesome sandwiches and various...More
