The Arch Cafe

Leeds centre

disabled access

The Arch Cafe is a new and exciting venture in Leeds City Centre, and is a cafe with a social conscience.

The cafe occupies a Grade 2 listed building formally a Charity School built by local benefactor John Harrison.

The Arch Cafe is open 6 days a week (closed on Sundays) and serves great coffee, Yorkshire tea, sandwiches, lunches, breakfasts and plenty of home baked cakes. We work with some of the region's best local and independent suppliers to serve seasonal and responsibly sourced food and drink.

We have free Wi Fi and a great outdoor seating area which provides a tranquil and green space away from the hustle and bustle of Leeds City Centre.

The cafe is adjacent to St Johns Church (the oldest church in Leeds City Centre!) in St Johns Yard. The Church is now managed by The Church Conservation Trust and is well worth a visit!

    My new favourite place.

    Great food and a perfect spot for small children in the heart of the city centre.

    Easy to get in and out with a pram (entrance is just next to Sainsbury's and St Johns Centre) with high chairs, baby change, crayons to keep them entertained and a good children's menu.

    But the best bit is that the cafe opens out onto the church yard where they can safely run off steam right in the middle of town. We had a quick tour of the church which is stunning and my daughter did some crafts (it was Big Draw week) whilst my son ran up and down the aisles shouting.
