I was on a business trip with some colleagues and we just randomly came across this cafe and I have to say I am happy we did! Fast and really welcoming service, the food was outstanding as well. I would really recommend this to anyone visiting Leeds.

Enjoyed our morning coffee here. Had espresso, cappuccino, soya latte. I asked for a tap water to take some tablets with and a cold jug with various fruits came along - excellent touch. Service was really friendly and personable and surroundings comfortable and relaxing. Will happily return.

Went on a Friday evening and was surprised that it was empty. The service was really nice and attentive, but not overbearing and food was delicious. Lovely little gem, not an intimate or romantic setting but good honest food at very reasonable prices. Will be back.

Came here on a Friday morning for a spot of brunch and would highly recommend. I had a flat white that was well made, and we both had the moments breakfast, which was a lovely twist on the traditional full English; poached eggs on toast, Toulouse sausages, mushrooms, bacon and some lovely homemade baked beans- delicious!

Nice clean cafe with friendly staff. Good food lovingly prepared, however more vegetarian dishes are needed for it to appeal to a wider range of customers. I'd like to see at least 5 veggie dishes available for lunch. Otherwise a great little cafe :)

Moments is my absolute favourite place to go for weekend brunch in Leeds. The eggs are always exceptional and the specials are always great. My boyfriend and I go every weekend without fail. Highly recommend.

Strangely, places serving a good breakfast are few and far between in the centre of Leeds but tried this place today for the first time and was very impressed. The cooked breakfast came with wonderful Toulouse sausages, home made brown sauce and perfectly poached eggs. Salmon and asparagus on toast was also excellent and the smoothies were great. Not sure... More

I've been twice so far and the tiramisu was my favourite part - decent prices and really nice atmosphere. Staff are lovely.
