“A welcome respite from University food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013

Spent a couple of days at a conference at Leeds university opposite, where during the break they served abominations called coffee and ruined perfectly normal tea bags by tepid water. This small tea room offers (for take-away or staying in of you find space) a great variety of reasonably priced, well prepared teas (exotic and run of the mill ones: went through 7 of them during 3 days...), and a nice assortment of sweets and lots of great sandwiches. Great. And avoid what the university offers you.

“One of the best places to get lunch in the University area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

This tea room is a hidden gem! What makes Pickard's so unique is it serves all kinds of unique homemade sandwiches from 'smoke mackerel + chili gooseberry jelly with spinach' and 'houmous + road mix vegetables with sea salt crystals and rocket' to 'beetroot + mozzerella with onion marmalade, toasted sesame seeds + watercress' and 'Red Leicester + rustica tomatoes with smoked paprika + chili butter + watercress'! The best news is they're so reasonably priced; £2.40 is very competitive considering they're all homemade.

I'd also recommend stopping for a hot drink or even a cake - the chocolate and turkish delight brownies are gorgeous. The service is fantastic too - really kind people work there.

I'm not entirely sure why it comes up here on TripAdvisor as a 'pop-up' tearoom as it has been anchored there for a good 2 years... and let it continue that way!
