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.

Gray's coffee shop & kitchen in the LCB Depot in Leicester is THE best place in Leicester to get a coffee. But Al's special decaf/caf mix is off the scale :)

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 other snacks and surprises to help fuel you through the day! Great atmosphere, engaging staff... More

Superb food, really fresh (I had a salad which was practically all grown on site) brilliant service and great surroundings - my new favourite lunch spot! Looking forward to trying breakfast here soon too :)

What a great place this is! Run by passionate young guys, caring for the food they prepare, in season, constantly changing. In a quirky environment within the LCB Depot facilities, it caters for the local working crowd but I highly recommend for anyone visiting town! Well done guys!

Well isnt this a pleasant treat hidden in the heart of Leicester City?!! Right in the cultural quarter this reminds me a little of New York. Absolutely beautiful food at a really decent price, friendly staff and lovely setting. Hopefully we can come back soon!!

When I was working at the LCB Depot a few months back, lunch became the best part of the day. Relaxed and spacious, with the friendliest staff, delicious food and great coffee to boot. I try to pop in whenever I'm in town.

Ate here for lunch and then came back for dinner! Lots of tasty and healthy options, super friendly staff, big open space...can't miss if you're in Leicester. Try the falafel burger, you won't be sorry.

Ate here several times with a big group and the food was always fantastic- healthy, locally sourced and delicious. The staff (especially Gray himself!) are so lovely and helpful and the space is beautiful. Great events on there as well!

Thank Jessica A
